520    Fish travel in schools, birds migrate in flocks, honeybees
       swarm, and ants build trails. How and why do these 
       collective behaviors occur? Exploring how coordinated 
       group patterns emerge from individual interactions, 
       Collective Animal Behavior reveals why animals produce 
       group behaviors and examines their evolution across a 
       range of species. Providing a synthesis of mathematical 
       modeling, theoretical biology, and experimental work, 
       David Sumpter investigates how animals move and arrive 
       together, how they transfer information, how they make 
       decisions and synchronize their activities, and how they 
       build collective structures. Sumpter constructs a unified 
       appreciation of how different group-living species 
       coordinate their behaviors and why natural selection has 
       produced these groups. For the first time, the book 
       combines traditional approaches to behavioral ecology with
       ideas about self-organization and complex systems from 
       physics and mathematics. Sumpter offers a guide for 
       working with key models in this area along with case 
       studies of their application, and he shows how ideas about
       animal behavior can be applied to understanding human 
       social behavior. Containing a wealth of accessible 
       examples as well as qualitative and quantitative features,
       Collective Animal Behavior will interest behavioral 
       ecologists and all scientists studying complex systems
