Beyond DNA: integrating inclusive inheritance into an extended theory of evolution.
Danchin É, Charmantier A, Champagne FA, Mesoudi A, Pujol B, Blanchet S. Danchin É, et al. Nat Rev Genet. 2011 Jun 17;12(7):475-86. doi: 10.1038/nrg3028. Nat Rev Genet. 2011. PMID: 21681209 Review.
Ethics, evolution and culture.
Mesoudi A, Danielson P. Mesoudi A, et al. Theory Biosci. 2008 Aug;127(3):229-40. doi: 10.1007/s12064-008-0027-y. Epub 2008 Mar 21. Theory Biosci. 2008. PMID: 18357481
Recent work in the fields of evolutionary ethics and moral psychology appears to be converging on a single empirically- and evolutionary-based science of morality or ethics. ...Here we suggest that a science of morality/ethics can benefit from adopting a cult …

From cultural traditions to cumulative culture: parameterizing the differences between human and nonhuman culture.
Kempe M, Lycett SJ, Mesoudi A. Kempe M, et al. J Theor Biol. 2014 Oct 21;359:29-36. doi: 10.1016/j.jtbi.2014.05.046. Epub 2014 Jun 10. J Theor Biol. 2014. PMID: 24928150
Our model of cumulative culture (Model 2) indicates that both the accuracy of social learning and the number of cultural demonstrators interact to determine the complexity of a trait that can be maintained in a population. Combining these models (Model 3) creates tw …

Perspective: is human cultural evolution Darwinian? Evidence reviewed from the perspective of the Origin of Species.
Mesoudi A, Whiten A, Laland KN. Mesoudi A, et al. Evolution. 2004 Jan;58(1):1-11. doi: 10.1111/j.0014-3820.2004.tb01568.x. Evolution. 2004. PMID: 15058714
The claim that human culture evolves through the differential adoption of cultural variants, in a manner analogous to the evolution of biological species, has been greeted with much resistance and confusion. Here we demonstrate that as compelling a case can now be m …

What is cumulative cultural evolution?
Mesoudi A, Thornton A. Mesoudi A, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2018 Jun 13;285(1880):20180712. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2018.0712. Proc Biol Sci. 2018. PMID: 29899071 Free PMC article. Review.
The Evolution of Individual and Cultural Variation in Social Learning.
Mesoudi A, Chang L, Dall SRX, Thornton A. Mesoudi A, et al. Trends Ecol Evol. 2016 Mar;31(3):215-225. doi: 10.1016/j.tree.2015.12.012. Epub 2016 Jan 5. Trends Ecol Evol. 2016. PMID: 26775795 Review.
Here we review evidence for this individual variation, placing it within a continuum of increasing phenotypic plasticity, from genetically polymorphic personality traits, to developmental plasticity via cues such as maternal stress, to the individual learning of social lea …

We used a battery of psychological measures previously shown to vary cross-culturally to compare the social orientation and cognitive style of 286 residents of East London from three cultural backgrounds: (i) 1st-generation British Bangladeshi immigrants; (ii) 2nd-generati …

Considering the role of time budgets on copy-error rates in material culture traditions: an experimental assessment.

A total of 90 participants copied the shape of a 3D 'target handaxe form' using a standardized foam block and a plastic knife. ...One aim of this study was to determine whether reducing production time produced a proportional increase in copy er

Introduction: integrating genetic and cultural evolutionary approaches to language.
Mesoudi A, McElligott AG, Adger D. Mesoudi A, et al. Hum Biol. 2011 Apr;83(2):141-51. doi: 10.3378/027.083.0201. Hum Biol. 2011. PMID: 21615283
While both of these areas have received increasing interest in recent years, there is also a need to integrate these somewhat separate efforts and explore the relevant gene-culture coevolutionary interactions. ...The second set of papers discusses the consequences of viewi …
