Abstract

The paper presents an agent-based model of gallery structure formation by bark beetles. It attempts to show that the remarkably complex patterns observed in nature are an emergent side effect of several basic processes mostly related to the embodied interaction of the beetle with the wood.

Keywords: self-organisation, animal behavior simulation, bark beetles
