The Evolution of Cooperative Behaviour
Can cooperative behaviour emerge from groups of selfish individuals? Here you can use a popular puzzle called the Prisoner's Dilemma Game to examine how cooperation might arise and evolve in animal groups. The results might surprise you!

Welcome to BIO150Y's on-line tutorial about the evolution of cooperative behaviour. If this is your first time here, we recommend that you start the tutorial at the Introduction where the format is explained and background theory is developed.
From there you can proceed step-wise through the single-move, multiple-moves, and evolution games. At any point you can go directly to anywhere in the tutorial from the site-map or from the links below.
