Data from: Kin discrimination increases with odor distance in the German cockroach

Mathieu Lihoreau, Colette Rivault & Jelle S. Van Zweden
Kin recognition mediates altruistic behavior and inbreeding avoidance in many animal societies. So far, evidence for accurate kin recognition, when individuals distinguish fine scale differences in genetic relatedness, in social insects is mixed.

Here we show that gregarious cockroaches Blattella germanica discriminate multiple levels of...
