Example evolution of a single experiment with no height representation, particle trails indicated by greyscale values. (a) Model Plasmodium inoculated as a single mass completely occupying available locations, (b) as adaptation progresses, pores begin to form in the virtual material, (ce) pores grow in size until networks are formed, (fg) network adaptation is constrained by attraction to nutrient stimuli (bright dots), (h) stable network is formed (Simulation result snapshots from custom Java simulation of slime mould (https://www.processing.org/) by author J.J.).
