This chapter traces the history of metapopulation studies from the introduction of the term by Levins in 1970 to its investigation in a variety of field, theoretical and laboratory systems. The prerequisites for group selection in a metapopulation and how genetic interactions affect selection within and among groups of individuals are discussed. The metaphor of the card games war and poker is introduced to illustrate how the meaning of gene effect is changed by interactions.

Keywords:   gametic selection, genetic interactions, group selection, individual selection, metapopulation
