Abstract


  • Locusts have no need for network technologies. For a locust to connect iphones,

    facebook and twitter are irrelevant. A day can start off pretty normal but in

    overcrowded conditions suddenly something totally new can be imagined and a

    swarm can amass momentum. Scientists now think that it is the overproduction of

    serotonin that causes this transformation and inspires the locusts to become

    mutually attracted, to gather, breed and eat.
