Foragers respond to the speed and efficiency of other antsant colonies
Foragers of leafcutter ant colonies respond to the speed and efficiency of other ants by varying leaf loads in size and weight.
Biosonar gives an accurate imagingdolphin
High resolution biosonar of dolphins, bats and mole rats gives an accurate imaging by using real-time data processing.
Sonar adjusts to surroundingsbig brown bat
Sonar of big brown bats enables navigation of dense or cluttered landscapes via frequency shifting.

Self-organization creates efficient coloniessocial insects
Self-organization in social insect colonies enables complex behaviors through the positive feedback amplification of many small, simple interactions.
Individuals share informationred harvester ant
Ants share information efficiently in their colony by having few ants engaged in most of the interactions while most ants engaged in few interactions.
Sensing and sharing informationneurons
Neurons aid organisms in reacting to environmental stimuli because they collaborate to sense the environment, share information, and filter unimportant information
