Individual variation in local interaction rules can explain emergent patterns of spatial organisation in wild baboons

Abstract:

Researchers have long noted that individuals occupy consistent spatial positions within animal groups. However, an individual’s position depends not only on its own behaviour, but also on the behaviour of others. Theoretical models of collective motion suggest that global patterns of spatial assortment can arise from individual variation in local interaction rules. However, this prediction remains untested. Using high-resolution GPS tracking of members of a wild baboon troop, we identify cons...
