Make love and war – Quantifying discrete male polymorphic reproductive ratios

A paper I never officially published

Make love and war – Quantifying discrete male polymorphic reproductive ratios

Abstract
Fighters primarily develop at low population densities; Though the
proportion of males becoming fighters at any given density may change over time. This change is likely to be due to condition-dependence. Data is presented to illuminate these matters and a model is developed linking fighter development to the costs of being a fighter (in terms of survival) and the benefits of being a fighter (in terms of fecundity).

Seville 2009 Habitat3D data set as GPU Render

After having a look into Insect Robotics, I came over the Seville 2009 data set of an ant habitat (Cataglyphis velox).  Converting this with Meshlab and using a generic ant model with some freely available HDRI’s, resulted in some nice pictures in OTOY’s Octane 3.06  to visualise an ant perspective.

There is also a MATLAB representation on http://www.insectvision.org/walking-insects/antnavigationchallenge

Clyde Estuary Time Lapse (Hyperlapse) 23.4.2016 – 3.6.2016

Using the techniques mentioned on this site [UCAM Sending] I made a time lapse video of the Clyde Estuary in full HD using 59650 single images using avconf.

First the webcam plays the image on my server, then the Continue reading Clyde Estuary Time Lapse (Hyperlapse) 23.4.2016 – 3.6.2016
