  abstract =     "We present a comparative analysis of the effect of
                 explicit communications among the predator agents on
                 the generality and robustness of emerged social
                 behaviour of agents in predator-prey pursuit problem.
                 The social behavior is evolved employing strongly typed
                 genetic programming with exception handling
                 capabilities. We demonstrated that the relatively
                 complex, social behavior emerges from simple, basic
                 model of implicit, proximity defined interactions among
                 the agents. Such model offers the benefits of
                 simplicity and scalability. However, compared to the
                 additionally proposed model of explicit communications
                 among the agents, it features increased computational
                 effort and inferior generality and robustness of the
                 emergent behavior of the agents situated in noisy and
                 uncertain environments. Explicit communications
                 contribute to the anomalous reduction of performance
                 degradation with increase of noise in agents
                 perceptions. The reason for the anomaly is viewed in
                 the favourable effect of adaptive, situationally
                 dependent noise in the indirectly (trough
                 communications) perceived environment.",
