What we can learn from insects.
What we can learn from insects.

About this event

Both human and insect societies depend on complex and highly coordinated infrastructure systems such as communication networks, supply chains, and transportation networks. Like human-designed infrastructure systems, those of social insects are regularly subject to disruptions.

In this talk, we discuss examples of resilience in insect societies and highlight the potential for collaborative research between our industries, leading to greater understanding in what contributes to infrastructure resilience.

Presented by:
Dr Eliza Middleton (Postdoctoral Research Associate, The University of Sydney) & Suzanna Remmerswaal (Senior Consultant, AECOM Sustainability).
