Speaker: Professor Iain Couzin, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, Department of Collective Behaviour and the Chair of Biodiversity and Collective Behaviour at the University of Konstanz, Germany
The extraordinary synchrony of motion exhibited as a flock of birds arcs overhead, or a school of fish turns, as a ripple of light, is captivating. Like some animate fluid the individual organisms appear to move as one, their minds seemingly connected by an invisible network. Professor Couzin’s lecture will provide a visual guide to collective animal behavior, using the latest imaging
technologies to reveal how and why animals exhibit collective motion, the huge impact swarms have on human life, and the remarkable collective sensing and decision-making capabilities that have arisen in animal groups.
This lecture is part of the Mathematical Models in Ecology and Evolution conference. Online registration for this event has now closed.
