David Crews, PhD

A useful concept in evolutionary biology is that traits that are common are ancient and fundamental, whereas less common traits are more recently evolved. The fact that (1) behavioral facilitation of reproduction occurs in all kinds of organisms, ranging from blue-green algae to mammals, and (2) the diversity of organisms exhibiting behavioral facilitation is greater than the diversity of organisms exhibiting sexual reproduction (meiosis), suggests that behavioral facilitation is more fundamental, or more ancient, than is sexual reproduction. Since behavioral facilitation is an interactive process, this means that relationships and reactivity to these relationships is absolutely fundamental to biological systems.
