How did collective motion, such as the movement of a school of fish, first evolve? And what do the individuals within the group gain from this collective behaviour? Hein et al. have developed a model based on individuals and groups searching for resources. This model reveals a number of emergent properties that allow groups to find resources more quickly than individuals working alone. Figure credit: Mike Kuznetsov
