Social isolation: Animals that break away from the pack can influence evolution,
For some animals — such as beetles, ants, toads, and primates — short-term social isolation can be just as vital as social interaction to development and long-term evolution. Evolutionary biologists describe approaches for testing how an animal’s isolation might impact natural selection and evolution. This framework can help design more effective breeding, reintroduction, and conservation strategies.
