Animal behavior isn't complicated, but it is complex. Nicolas Perony studies how individual animals -- be they Scottish Terriers, bats or meerkats -- follow simple rules that, collectively, create larger patterns of behavior. And how this complexity born of simplicity can help them adapt to new circumstances, as they arise.

•We tested the theory of structural balance (i.e. ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’) in rock hyrax social networks. •We found that in accordance with structural balance, hyraxes tend to form balanced triads. •Hyraxes changed their social configurations over time, moving into more balanced triads. •New individuals in the population introduced social instability. •Triad sex ratio affected the triad type it changed to.
