"Simplicity leads to complexity which leads to resilience," says Nicolas Perony, an engineer turned into a complex systems scientist who studies the social structure of animal groups. Perony shares his findings on the resilience of bat social networks and the adaptation of Kalahari meerkats to human encroachment, and gives us a peek into the wonderful hidden complexity of the animal kingdom.
