Stigmergy describes coordination among individuals by communication via modifications of the environment. Here, positive feedback or triggering of behavior can be induced by a modification of the environment that was performed by
- The individual itself
- Another member of the swarm
Note that an environmental modification can also be due to perturbations of the environment.
