Bacterial Intelligence

Don’t know much about the “World Science” source of this article, but I was struck by vague parallels with Hofstadter’s “Ant Colony” in this image of fractal patterns arising in a bacteria colony multiplying across the surface of an agar dish. [via David Morey over on MoQ-Discuss.]

The article itself looks quite involved – need to read carefully.
