Why slimy cheats don’t win - Scientists

ITRealms:

"Darwin’s evolutionary theory predicts survival of the fittest. So why do different survival tactics co-exist, if evolution should always favour the winning strategy?"
To answer that question scientists at the Universities of Bath and Manchester have been studying a single-celled amoeba, also known as slime mould, which displays certain behaviours that have been labelled  as “cheating” or “cooperating”. 

In a study, published in the prestigious journal Current Biology, the team found that cheaters don’t necessarily win in terms of overall survival, suggesting that biologists should re-evaluate how they define and measure social cooperation.

ITRealms gathered from the Public Relations Officer at University of Bath, Dr. Vicky Just, that their research has medical implications when it comes to developing therapies that use socially successful bacteria to fight diseases such as lung infections.

Professor Chris Thompson from Manchester’s Faculty of Life Sciences explains: “If the cheats always win, then according to Darwin, altruism shouldn’t exist. To study this we looked at why the single fittest strategy in the amoeba community doesn’t dominate.”

The team looked at how amoebae compete against each other during cooperative encounters. These strange microbes generally live in the soil as single cells, eating bacteria, but when food is limited, they clump together to form a ‘slug’ that moves to a different location before transforming into a fruiting body which eventually releases spores to produce the next generation of amoebae.

Development into a fruiting body requires cooperation, with some of the amoebae forming the stalk part of the fruiting body, effectively sacrificing themselves for the benefit of the ones that become spores. Therefore biologists have labelled the individuals that become the stalk as ‘altruists’, with the individuals that tend to form lots of spores being identified as ‘cheats’ because they benefit disproportionately.

However, the scientists from Bath and Manchester found that these assumptions don’t necessarily tell the whole story. Those labelled as cheats don’t end up having higher success than those that appear to lose since the cheats pay a price for their apparent success by producing larger numbers of lower quality spores. These inferior spores have lower survival rates, so overall the number of spores that survive is similar to those amoebae who ‘cooperate’.

According to Professor Jason Wolf from the University of Bath’s Department of Biology & Biochemistry, their study showed that there are definitely winners and losers in social coorporation.

“Our study shows that whilst there are definitely winners and losers in social 
cooperation, you can’t measure social success just by counting the number of spores these moulds produce. Those that produce lots of spores often make inferior ones that don’t have any overall advantage over their competitors," he said.

Stressing that scientists require to take a second look at the bigger picture when measuring social success, rather than making assumptions based on measuring the wrong things.

For Professor Chris Thompson what the study says was that when scientists look at systems through just one aspect then that system could appear to be unbalanced and shouldn’t work, but in reality they are a collection of many features that together determine success, and so variety helps to make man more equal.

“Our study threw up quite a big surprise because the way we measure fitness in a system is currently misleading. By focussing on the number of offspring (in this case spores) rather than the quality, we’re using an incorrect measurement of success. “What we thought of as socially successful needs to be re-evaluated,” Thompson said.

i want to share my testimony of how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail… i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me. ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous” you need to cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found their number so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $1,200,000 to start up our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do, so you can as well WhatsApp me +2348106618681 or for more information +1(705)8062021 you can Email: illuminatipowerful666@gmail.com..
