The Ecology of Collective Behavior

 

Collective behavior operates without central control, using local interactions among participants to allow groups to respond to changing conditions.  Ant colonies function collectively, and the enormous diversity of more than 14K species of ants, in different habitats, provides opportunities to look for general ecological patterns. Comparing how local interactions produce the collective foraging behavior of harvester ants in the desert, and generate the trail networks of turtle ants in the tropical forest, suggest how systems with similar dynamics in their surroundings have evolved to show similar dynamics in their collective behavior.
