Mutualistic Networks: Structure, Function, and Response to Perturbations

Mutualisms are species interactions that are mutually beneficial, including cleaning mutualisms, seed dispersal, and pollination among many others. In nature, most mutualistic interactions are generalized, with any given species interacting with many other partner species. The interactions between pairs of species scale up to form networks, which have a characteristic set of structural properties that are widely consistent across different species, interaction types, and ecosystems.

Agile movement and embodied intelligence: Computational and comparative considerations

Our ability to study brain and behavior has long proceeded in lock-step with advances in technology. At the same time, understanding of neurobiological principles has continuously driven technological innovations, including serving as the inspiration for most of the major advances in artificial intelligence. Even so, engineered systems still struggle to achieve flexible behaviors that require interaction with the physics of the world. All animals excel at such sensorimotor behaviors within their natural contexts.
