The structure of a society determines who gets to interact with whom, and in what relation, resulting in networks of social connections. These social networks play a very important role in the ecology and evolution of all animals, very much including humans. Erol Akçay will talk about how evolution shapes these social networks in animals and how social networks co-evolve with behaviors.
