Data from: Regulatory mechanisms of group distributions in a gregarious arthropod

Pierre Broly, Romain Mullier, Cédric Devigne & Jean-Louis Deneubourg
In a patchy environment, how social animals manage conspecific and environmental cues in their choice of habitat is a leading issue for understanding their spatial distribution and their exploitation of resources. Here, we experimentally tested the effects of environmental heterogeneities (artificial shelters) and some of their characteristics (size and fragmentation) on the aggregation process of a common species of terrestrial isopod (Crustacea). One hundred individuals were introduced into three different heterogeneous set-ups and in a...
