This class will focus on eusociality in insects! We will discuss the background of the eusocial insects in question, the basics of eusociality and why it evolved, other cool insect stories, etc.. I likely won't teach for the full time but will leave a chunk of time at the end for students to ask questions about anything - class-related questions, or UC Berkeley related, general college-related, etc..
