We quantitatively investigated the internal motion of the flock based on pairwise statistics and found the following general relationships in all datasets: i) the temporal order of decisions characterised by the delay between directional changes is strictly related to the spatial order characterised by the longitudinal relative position within the flock; ii) during circling motion, pigeons use a mixture of two idealised and fundamentally different turning strategies, namely, parallel-path and equal-radius type turning. While pigeons tend to maintain their relative position within the flock on average, as in the parallel-path approximation, those who turn later also get behind as in the equal-radius case. Equal-radius type turning also tends to be expressed more during smaller radius turns.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Nagy, Máté</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Nagy, Máté</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Yomosa, Makoto</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Coordinated Behaviour in Pigeon Flocks</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Mizuguchi, Tsuyoshi</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
