BioNB 2210: Lecture 21 Oct. 14, 2011 Lecture 21: Kin Recognition A Case Study With Wasps Professor H. Kern Reeve Learning Objectives 1. To understand the components of recognition mechanisms. 2. To understand the major kinds of recognition mechanisms and when each is likely to evolve. 3. To understand optimal discrimination thresholds in uncertain environments. A. The components of kin recognition 1. production component -- nature and development of the recognition cue (e.g., environmental versus genetic, acquired versus endogenous). 2. perception component -- development of the kin recognition template, sensory detection of the recognition cues, and algorithm for assessing similarity between the template and recognition cues. 3. action component -- nature and determinants of the action taken by a discriminator (actor) that has assessed a given degree of similarity between its recognition template and the recognition cues.
