Abstract

The evolution of cooperation is an intriguing puzzle in evolutionary biology. Several examples have been described where individual microbial cells cooperate by secreting products that are beneficial for the whole community, but reduce the fitness of the producing cells. The spatial distribution within the community provides a solution that can explain the evolution and stability of cooperative interactions.
