    The book is consistent in terminology and framework. For use in my course, it would have to have more biological context.

    This book describes how the principle of self-sufficiency can be applied to a reconfigurable modular robotic organism. It shows the design considerations for a novel REPLICATOR robotic platform, both hardware and software, featuring the behavioral characteristics of social insect colonies.   It is thus important to consider the function of modules not only in the context of an organism, but also from the point of view of the population of .

Modular organisms (e.g. plants, fungi, sponges, etc.) usually have a branching structure and an overall shape that is highly variable and determined mainly by environmental influences.

they have large surface attachment areas so are less vulnerable to dislodging. Why does a designated individual within a population "warn" others if this exposes it to danger. Broadly speaking, modularity is the degree to which a system's components may be separated and recombined, often with the benefit of flexibility and variety in use.

The concept of modularity is used primarily to reduce complexity by breaking a system into varying degrees of interdependence and independence across and "hide the complexity of each part behind an abstraction and interface.".

Introduction. The population concept. The central question in population ecology is: what determines structure and functioning of populations and their variation in time and space.

The aim of this course is to acquire the appropriate tools to deal with this question in any real-life situation through scientific research. Difference between unitary and modular organisms unitary: individuals are discrete units modular: reproduction due to production of modules (so it is difficult to define an "individual").

A modular structure enhances the robustness of a system by decreasing the spread of a perturbation. Since robustness improves the fitness of an organism, and modularity contributes to Cited by: Modular organisms are those in which a genet (or genetic individual formed from a sexually-produced zygote) asexually reproduces to form genetically identical clones called ramets.

A clonal colony is when the ramets of a genet live in close proximity or are physically connected. Ramets may have all of the functions needed to survive on their own or be interdependent on other ramets.
