Aggregation is widespread in invertebrate societies and can appear in response to environmental heterogeneities or by attraction between individuals. We performed experiments with cockroach, Blattella germanica, larvae in a homogeneous environment to investigate the influence of interactions between individuals on aggregations. Different densities were tested. A first phase led to radial dispersion of larvae in relation to wall-following behaviours; the consequence of this process was a… Expand
