A model of food recruitment by social insects accounting for the competition between trails in the presence of an arbitrary number of sources is developed and analysed in detail. Both the case of identical environmental characteristics and the case where one source and the corresponding trail are different from the others are considered. Different collective responses depending on the environmental conditions, and without change of individual behaviour, are shown to exist, associated with the… CONTINUE READING
