Building and Sorting

Social insects show all a fascinating builing behavior. One of the most impressing kinds of collective nest construction is the building behavior performed by termites. This can be modeled using simple pickup and drop rules.

Very similar to this building is the brood-sorting behavior of ants. They can discriminate between different brood stages and sort them in spatially distinct areas. The results of this sorting can be influenced from outside by environmental templates.

Please select:

  1. Building performed by termites
  2. Building by termites influenced by a (growing) template
  3. Sorting of brood by ants
  4. Sorting by ants influenced by a template
