These findings indicate that (1) agonistic interactions do not always result in the elimination of inferior competitors, (2) colonies may increase production of immature gonozooids--an investment in future reproduction--as a result of growth limitation by conspecifics, and (3) ontogenetic changes in allorecognition-mediated fusibility may be due in part to heavily size-dependent fitness consequences of non-fusion.
