Iscuss the maintenance of altruism in the social amoeba Dictyostelium doscoideum.

The papers by Gilbert et al. (2007) and Khare et al. (2009) discuss the maintenance of altruism in the social amoeba Dictyostelium doscoideum. Explain what these amoebae do that is altruistic, and then explain the evidence from these papers on how altruism is maintained. Be sure to distinguish between the mechanisms shown in Gilbert et al. (2007) and Khare et al. (2009).

The two article are the ones I attached.
