## WHAT IS IT?

Flocking under predation describes the behaviour of herbivores in an attack situation by carnivores. By simulating a flock mechanism if a predator is in siged this model explains how the vision and the distance between the herbivores and how the hunting success rate of the hunter affect the survival rate of the individuals.

## HOW IT WORKS

Herbivores and Carnivores both observe their enviroment for the other breed. While the predator always moves or hunts the herbivores moves and observes the environment for carnivores. Depending on the distance to the predator the herbivore either flocks with other herbivores in it's near enviroment or tries to flee from the carnivore.
