The goal is to use the least energy, storage, and other resources necessary to maintain a reliable system with a very high `data homing' success rate and it is believed that the domain-centric protocols and energy tradeoffs presented here for ZebraNet will have general applicability in other wireless and sensor applications.

It is these dual connections between social activities and the environment and the resulting feedbacks that mandates understanding both the causes and consequences of animal sociality so that effective and efficient management or conservation policies can be developed.
Role assessment, reserve strategy, and acquisition of information in asymmetric animal conflicts
Mortality risk of spatial positions in animal groups: The danger of being in the front
We modified Hamilton's (1971) selfish herd model by introducing directional movement to the prey groups and the predators. The consequences of this modification with regards to differential predation…
The Dynamics of Herds: From Individuals to Aggregations
Abstract The dynamic behavior of small herds is investigated by means of simulations of two-dimensional discrete-stochastic models. An individual-based approach is used to relate collective behavior…

DNA metabarcoding was used to quantify diet breadth, composition, and overlap for seven abundant LMH species (six wild, one domestic) in semiarid African savanna, suggesting that LMH diversity may be more tightly linked to plant diversity than is currently recognized.
Network metrics reveal differences in social organization between two fission–fusion species, Grevy’s zebra and onager
The current approach demonstrates the utility of network metrics for identifying fine-grained variation among individuals and populations in association patterns and can make testable predictions about behavioral mechanisms underlying social structure and its effects on transmission processes.
Social relationships and reproductive state influence leadership roles in movements of plains zebra, Equus burchellii
Leadership in fish shoals
Leadership is not an inherent quality of animal groups that show directional locomotion. However, there are other factors that may be responsible for the occurrence of leadership in fish shoals, such…
The Mechanisms of Filter Feeding: Some Theoretical Considerations
These mechanisms are enumerated and awareness of these mechanisms and their interrelationships will provide insights for those investigating the efficiency of various modes of filter feeding and the mechanisms of size-selective suspension feeding.
