Animals as Mobile Biological Sensors for Forest Fire Detection

Abstract This paper proposes a mobile biological sensor system that can assist in early detection of forest fires. The main idea presented in this paper is to utilize animals with sensors as Mobile Biological Sensors (MBS). The devices used in this system are animals which are native animals living in forests, sensors (thermo and radiation [...]

Collective Memory and Spatial Sorting in Animal Groups

Abstract We present a self-organizing model of group formation in three-dimensional space, and use it to investigate the spatial dynamics of animal groups such as fish schools and bird flocks. We reveal the existence of major group-level behavioural transitions related to minor changes in individual-level interactions. Further, we present the first evidence for collective memory [...]
