Summary
This book is about the ways in which many animals form groups, for instance, schools of fish, flock-of birds, and swarms of insects. Covering both invertebrate and vertebrate species, the authors investigate three-dimensional animal aggregations from a variety of disciplines, from physics to mathematics to biology. Researchers interested in behavioral ecology or modeling biological systems would benefit from reading this book

Unifying principles, galactic framework, and the holy grails of aggregation, Julia K. Parrish, William M. Hamner and Charles T. Prewitt. Part 1 Imaging and measurement: methods for three-dimensional sensing of animals, Jules S. Jaffe; analytical and digital photogrammetry, Jon Osborn; acoustic visualization of three-dimensional animal aggregations in the ocean, Charles H. Gree and Peter H. Wiebe; three-dimensional structure and dynamics of bird flocks, Frank Heppner; three-dimensional measurements of swarming mosquitos -- a probabilistic model, measuring system, and example output, Terumi Ikawa and Hidehiko Okabe. Part 2 Analysis: quantitative analysis of animal movements in congregations, Peter Turchin; movements of animals in congregations -- an Eularian analysis of bark beetle swarming, Peter Turchin and Gregory Simons; individual decisions, traffic rules, and emergent pattern in schooling fish, Julia K. Parrish and Peter Turchin; aggregate behaviour in zooplankton -- phototactic swarming in 4 developmental stages of Coullana canadensis (Copepoda harpacticoida), Jeannette Yen and Elizabeth A. Bryant. Part 3 Behavioral ecology and evolution: is the sum of the parts equal to the whole -- the conflice between individuality and group membership, William M. Hamner and Julia K. Parrish; why are some members more likely to be on the outside of the group -- testing the evolutionary predictions, William L. Romey; costs and benefits as a function of group size -- experiments on a swarming mysid Paramesopodopsis rufa fenton, David A. Ritz; predicting the three-dimensional structure of animal aggregations from functional consideration -- the role of information, Lawrence M. Dill, C.S. Holling, and L.H. Palmer; perspectives on sensory integration systems -- problems, opportunities, and predictions, Carl R. Schilt and Kenneth S. Norris. Part 4 Models: conceptual and methodological issues in the modeling of biological aggregations, Simon A. Levin; schooling as a strategy for chemotaxis in a noisy environment, Daniel Grunbaum; trail following as an adaptable mechanism for popular behaviuor, Leah Edelstein-Keshett; metabolic models of fish school behaviuor -- the need for quantitative observations, William McFarland and Akira Okubo; social forces in animal congregations -- interactive, motivational and sensory aspects, Kevin Warburton
