Branching and Self‐Organization in Marine Modular Colonial Organisms: A Model
TLDR
A model of branching and colony growth in Caribbean gorgonian corals using parameters and variables related to actual modular structures and a scaling power law suggesting self‐organized criticality is developed.
Linking local to global properties in branching modular networks: gorgonian coral colonies
TLDR
The idea that the external components of a tree-like plant network are directly correlated and connected down to the main trunk seems to be analogous in an animal system.
