second part of the review emphasizes one group effect behavior, cycloalexy, a form of circular, often defensive, gregariousness. There, we pay special interest to insects and, in particular, to chrysomelids, (Coleoptera). Others aggregation patterns, such as stigmergy and epialexy are also briefly

and their adaptability to their natural environment and ‘swarm intelligence’, Elliott co-opts the concept to describe the way in which Wikipedia works: The concept of stigmergy therefore provides an intuitive and easy-to-grasp theory for helping understand how disparate, distributed, ad hoc

social insects is fascinating, relatively few researchers have investigated their building behavior. Grasse (1) developed the first good theory about the control of construction behavior from his work on termites. His stigmergy theory states that construction is regulated by a linear series of if
