Pressestimmen


By exploring the way in which certain animal groups coordinate among themselves, "Collective Animal Behavior" offers a great deal of insight for managers seeking to better understand how collective behavior takes shape within a company. Using concrete examples, Sumpter . . . offers a clear account whose scope extends well beyond the natural sciences. -- Business Digest

"Collective Animal Behavior" provides an excellent synthesis of mathematical modeling and biology with experimental and theoretical studies. . . . [T]his volume does come with a homepage (www.collective-behavior.com/Site/Home.html), and the author has generously made many of the models he constructed available to those who want to run their own simulations. If the author keeps this portal up to date and his blog active, I am confident that readers interested in collective behavior, modeling, artificial intelligence, behavioral ecology, and evolution will enjoy not just the book but the complete interactive package.--Istvan Karsai "BioScience "

[T]his book is very important not only for biologists but also for decision makers. . . . [I]t is time that decision makers learn the principles of collective animal behavior for the benefits of humans. I thank the author for a very useful book.--E. Ahmed "Zentralblatt MATH "

"Collective Animal Behavior" is a fascinating and inspiring book. . . . I very much enjoyed reading this book and would certainly recommend it to anyone willing to approach the fascinating subject of collective animal behaviour. A . . . remarkable feature of this work is the way the author pools ideas, concepts and models from theoretical biology, physics, game theory and microeconomics.--Irene Giardina "ScienceDirect "

I enjoyed reading "Collective Animal Behavior", sharing it with students working on undergraduate summer research, and finding a few nicely covered topics relevant to my own research. . . . "Collective Animal Behavior" stands out for several reasons. At a technical level, it provides wide coverage of both mechanistic modeling, which is used to connect individual rules with group behavior, and functional analysis, which explains why some behaviors might confer advantages over others. Stylistically, Sumpter synthesizes perspectives, comparisons, critiques, and examples of human and animal behavior into his book. He expresses his opinions directly and presents provocative case studies.--Leah Edelstein-Keshet "Physics Today "

Buchrückseite

"This is a comprehensive, insightful, and fascinating introduction to how, and why, animals behave as a collective. From swarming ants and locusts, to flocking birds and human crowds, this modern synthesis is a must-read for biologists, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists who seek to understand the underlying mechanisms and evolutionary principles of animal grouping. Both scholarly and accessible, this book provides us a tantalizing overview of one of the most exciting new fields in biology--collective animal behavior."--Iain D. Couzin, Princeton University

"This well-organized, engaging, and authoritative book demonstrates that significant strides have been made in the mathematical models examining the collective behaviors of animals. No other book draws the disparate literature in this field together. This in itself would be an achievement, but Sumpter offers more: insightful comparisons between models, noteworthy bridges between mechanistic and functional schools of model building, and illuminating discussions of models' successes and limitations."--Graeme Ruxton, University of Glasgow

"This book fills an important niche that will be of interest to scientists across disciplines. Clear and well-illustrated, this is an excellent learning and teaching resource."--Darren P. Croft, University of Exeter
