eusocialityEusozialität (ger.)

  • Eusocial behaviour; the condition of being eusocial. (OED 1993)
    social behaviour eusocial

    Presocial refers to the expression of any degree of social behavior beyond sexual behavior yet short of eusociality

    Wilson, E.O. (1971). The Insect Societies: 4.


    There is no certainty that kin selection and altruism will arise with eusociality, but they probably usually do; they may also arise in semisocial groups if the individuals are closely enough related as a result of inbreeding.

    Eusociality has evolved independently in two genera of bathyergid mole-rats

    I […] suggest that we expand the scope of eusociality to include semisocial species, primitively eusocial species, highly eusocial species as well as those cooperatively breeding birds and mammals in which individuals give up some personal reproduction for aiding conspecifics. There should be no requirement of overlap of generations or of life-time sterility
