The social insects are the prime examples of the next major transition, from solitary organisms to social organisms. As a result of this change, workers of social insects have largely lost the power of reproducing independently, and genetic information has come to be primarily transmitted from generation to generation via the reproduction of.

What is biology? In simple terms, biology is the study of life. This is a very broad definition because the scope of biology is vast. Biologists may study anything from the microscopic or submicroscopic view of a cell to ecosystems and the whole living planet ().Listening to the daily news, you will quickly realize how many aspects of biology we discuss every day. Entomology is rooted in nearly all human cultures from prehistoric times, primarily in the context of agriculture (especially biological control and beekeeping).The natural philosopher Pliny the Elder, (23 - 79 AD) wrote a book on the kinds of Insects, while the scientist of Kufa, Ibn al-A‘rābī ( - AD) wrote a book on flies, Kitāb al-Dabāb (كتاب الذباب).
Eusocial species, any colonial animal species that lives in multigenerational family groups in which the vast majority of individuals cooperate to aid relatively few (or even a single) reproductive group members. Eusocial species often exhibit extreme task specialization, which makes colonies.

Social Insects, Volume III emphasizes the insect symbionts that represent a very complex group of organisms with very diverse habits. This volume primarily focuses on various types of bees and their sociality.

The book pioneered and popularized the attempt to explain the evolutionary mechanics behind social behaviors such as altruism, aggression, and nurturance, primarily in ants (Wilson's own research specialty) and other Hymenoptera, but also in other animals.
However, the influence of evolution on behavior has been of interest to biologists and philosophers since soon after the. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: Proceedings of the First European Congress on Social Insects, held at the University of Leuven, Belgium, from 19.
