    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Evolution 65:885-92. 2011
    ..This shows how a selfish behavior can lead to a benefit for the group, and suggests a way to solve social dilemmas in the absence of relatedness and repeated interactions...

    Marco Archetti
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Evolution 65:1140-8. 2011
    ..The coexistence of cooperators and defectors, therefore, is a typical outcome of most social dilemmas, which requires neither relatedness nor iterations...

    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138 2902, USA
    J Hered 101:S21-33. 2010
    ..Thus recombination does not require any advantage at the individual or population level...
  5. pmc Loss of autumn colors under domestication: a byproduct of selection for fruit flavor?
    Marco Archetti
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Museum of Comparative Zoology Labs, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
    Plant Signal Behav 4:856-8. 2009
    ..It is unclear, therefore, whether loss of autumn color under domestication was a byproduct of artificial selection against red fruit flesh...
  6. doi request reprint Cooperation as a volunteer's dilemma and the strategy of conflict in public goods games
    M Archetti
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
    J Evol Biol 22:2192-200. 2009
    ..Adopting a strategy that entails a deliberate risk (brinkmanship), therefore, can lead to a benefit for the society without being detrimental for the individual...

    Marco Archetti
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 2902, USA
    J Theor Biol 261:475-80. 2009
    ..This problem persists even with a high degree of relatedness between group members; an optimal, intermediate group size exists that maximizes the probability to produce the collective good...

    Marco Archetti
    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, UK
    Gene 443:64-9. 2009

    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, OX1 3PS Oxford, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 276:2575-80. 2009
    ..This suggests a possible trade off between fruit size, leaf colour and resistance to parasites. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that autumn colours are a warning signal to insects, but not with other hypotheses...

    M Archetti
    Department of Zoology, Oxford University, Oxford, UK
    J Evol Biol 22:740-50. 2009
