Eusociality (Greek eu: "good/real" + "social") is a term used for the highest level of social organization in a hierarchical classification. Eusociality is characterized by cooperative brood care, overlapping adult generations and division of labor by reproductive and (partially) non-reproductive groups. In analogy with some human societies, groups of specialized individuals are sometimes called castes. Several different levels of sociality have been categorized including presociality (Solitary but social), subsociality, parasocial (including communal, quasisocial, and semisocial), and eusocial.
