So naked mole rats are a diploid only system, while insects like termites are a haplodiploid system, yet both are eusocial. How can this be?
When establishing a eusocial society, a species must be able to populate castes. Termites accomplish this task in a preordained fashion using a haplodiploid characteristic to distinguish castes. In naked mole rats however, there is not a haplodiploid system. Instead they rely on hormaonl signaling to populate their castes, thus estabolishing the eusocial type society. Not sure if this is true. It's my interpretation.
