  abstract =     "We demonstrate the emergence of collective behavior in
                 two evolutionary computation systems, one an
                 evolutionary extension of a classic (highly
                 constrained) flocking algorithm and the other a
                 relatively un-constrained system in which the behavior
                 of agents is governed by evolved computer programs. The
                 first system demonstrates the evolution of a form of
                 multicellular organization, while the second
                 demonstrates the evolution of a form of altruistic food
                 sharing. In this article we describe both systems in
                 detail, document the emergence of collective behavior,
                 and argue that these systems present new opportunities
                 for the study of group dynamics in an evolutionary
                 context. We also provide a brief overview of the breve
                 simulation environment in which the systems were
                 produced, and of breve's facilities for the rapid,
                 exploratory development of visualization strategies for
                 artificial life.",
