In the Jan. 3 issue of Science, SFU biological sciences professor Bernard Crespi and graduate student Stevan Springer explain how a recent research paper published in the journal on cell-cell adhesion proteins - those which mediate developmental and social interactions among cells of Dictyostelium slime molds - provides stunning confirmation of predictions of social and behavioral theory.

It also opens up a whole new field of inquiry: the evolutionary ecology of interactions between cells.

The researchers describe how the implications of this research area reach across diverse fields, from their own research emphases on sociality and speciation, to development, carcinogenesis and maternal-fetal interactions.
