Data from: Multilevel selection with kin and non-kin groups, experimental results with Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica)

William M. Muir, Piter Bijma, Allan Schinckel & William. M. Muir
An experiment was conducted comparing multilevel selection in Japanese quail for 43 days weight and survival with birds housed in either kin (K) or random (R) groups. Multilevel selection significantly reduced mortality (6.6% K vs. 8.5% R) and increased weight (1.30 g/MG K vs. 0.13 g/MG R) resulting in response an order of magnitude greater with Kin than Random. Thus multilevel selection was effective in reducing detrimental social interactions, which contributed to improved weight gain....
