    Angus Buckling
    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
    FEMS Microbiol Ecol 62:135-41. 2007
    ..Fourth, cooperative pyoverdin production is also shown to be favoured by kin selection in vivo (caterpillars), and results in more virulent infections. Finally, we briefly outline ongoing and future work using this experimental system...
