Thermoregulation in P. Terraenovae aggregations, an agent-based approach

Abstract : This paper deals with an important issue of forensic entomology: the estimation of the temperature in a "maggot mass". An agent-based model of the thermoregulation behaviour of fly (Protophormia terraenovae) larvae is described. Simulation results show that the model reproduces an important observed pattern and thus, might be used in entomological expertises.
