Abstract

*[In this issue of PLoS Biology, Konrad et al. present an example of fungus-specific immune responses in 'social' ants that lead to the active immunization of nestmates by infected individuals. These findings join others in showing how organisms evolved diverse mechanisms that fulfill common functions, namely the discrimination between pathogens, the transfer of immunity between related individuals, & the group-level benefits of immunization.]
