Visual sensory networks and effective information transfer in animal groups
Social transmission of information is vital for many group-living animals, allowing coordination of motion and effective response to complex environments. Revealing the interaction networksExpand

Social networks and models for collective motion in animals
The theory of collective motion and the study of animal social networks have, each individually, received much attention. Currently, most models of collective motion do not consider social networkExpand

Human responses to multiple sources of directional information in virtual crowd evacuations
TLDR
The evacuation of crowds from buildings or vehicles is one example that highlights the importance of understanding how individual-level interactions and decision-making combine and lead to the overall behaviour of crowds. Expand

Leading from the front? Social networks in navigating groups
In many group-living animals, leadership by only a fraction of the group members can be important for group navigation. It has been shown that subgroups of informed individuals can steer theExpand

Social networks improve leaderless group navigation by facilitating long-distance communication
TLDR
Social networks in which preferences between individuals are not clustered, but spread evenly across the group are advantageous in group navigation by effectively enhancing long-distance information exchange within groups. Expand

Disentangling the Impact of Social Groups on Response Times and Movement Dynamics in Evacuations
Crowd evacuations are paradigmatic examples for collective behaviour, as interactions between individuals lead to the overall movement dynamics. Approaches assuming that all individuals interact inExpand

Collective Vortex Behaviors: Diversity, Proximate, and Ultimate Causes of Circular Animal Group Movements
Ant mill, caterpillar circle, bat doughnut, amphibian vortex, duck swirl, and fish torus are different names for rotating circular animal formations, where individuals turn around a common center.Expand

Information use by humans during dynamic route choice in virtual crowd evacuations
TLDR
We conducted a computer-based experiment with over 450 human participants and used a Bayesian model selection approach to explore dynamic exit route choice mechanisms of individuals in simulated crowd evacuations. Expand

Effect of Grazing-Mediated Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS) Production on the Swimming Behavior of the Copepod Calanus helgolandicus
Chemical interactions play a fundamental role in the ecology of marine foodwebs. Dimethyl sulfide (DMS) is a ubiquitous marine trace gas that acts as a bioactive compound by eliciting foragingExpand
