Global selective value

The global selective value applies to social species whose gene transmission depends on the reproductive success of the individual and the success of their descendants.

The theory of global selective value explains the gregarious instinct of animals, and their sociability and altruistic behaviour.

The greater the value, the more likely an individual is to transmit some of his/her genes to the next generation, which is the purpose of reproduction.
