Evolutionary computation in zoology and ecology | Current Zoology | Oxford Academic

fields. The method is growing in use in zoology and ecology. Evolutionary principles may be merged with an agent-based modeling perspective to have individual animals or other agents compete. Four main ... ecology, the methods are less often used in ecology and zoology (e.g., Alander 1994) . Many problems in ecology are certainly more complex than in engineering, and there is an appreciation for the ability

Reviving a Dormant Collection: Updating the Invertebrate Zoology Collection at the University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute for Future Use and Accessibility

The Invertebrate Zoology Collection at the University of Kansas (KU) Biodiversity Institute is one of KU’s smaller collections, with just over 2,000 lots. Its taxonomic strength are hexacorallians ... use outside of KU. The hope through such efforts is an accessible and easily searchable collection that is properly preserved for future research.

Zoology of condensed matter: framids, ordinary stuff, extra-ordinary stuff

We classify condensed matter systems in terms of the spacetime symmetries they spontaneously break. In particular, we characterize condensed matter itself as any state in a Poincaré-invariant theory that spontaneously breaks Lorentz boosts while preserving at large distances some form of spatial translations, time-translations, and possibly spatial rotations. Surprisingly, the...
