All across the natural world, organisms perform strange behaviours in order to help them survive in their chosen ecological niche. In this talk, I will chose a couple of such behaviours and discuss the mathematics behind these phenomena. Through constructing simple reduced mathematical models, we are not only able to bring to the surface the key underlying physics but also explain a myrid of experimental observations.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
