The nervous systems of foraging and predatory animals may prompt them to move along a special kind of random path called a Lévy walk to find food efficiently when no clues are available.
Recent findings add weight to the evidence that the intransitive competitions between species enrich the diversity of nature.
Mathematicians and neuroscientists have created the first anatomically accurate model that explains how vision is possible.
A primordial developmental toolkit shared by all vertebrates, and described by a theory of the mathematician Alan Turing, sets the growth pattern for all types of skin structures.
Some researchers are using a complexity framework thought to be purely theoretical to understand evolutionary dynamics in biological and computational systems.
