The applet requires Java 1.4.1 or higher. It will not run on Windows 95 or Mac OS 8 or 9. Mac users must have OS X 10.2.6 or higher and use a browser that supports Java 1.4. (Safari works, IE does not. Mac OS X comes with Safari. Open Safari and set it as your default web browser under Safari/Preferences/General.) On other operating systems, you may obtain the latest Java plugin from Sun's Java site.

About chameleons.

This is a work in progress.

The idea of an agent based simulation about chameleons comes from Marco Lamieri and has been developed by Riccardo Taormina, in SLAPP, Swarm Like Agent Protocol in Python, which is a project of mine. At the same address of the SLAPP project you have the source codes for two versions of the Taormina's programs about chameleons.
A near full implementation of the more developed version is also reproduced here in NetLogo, by myself. Here in English and here in Italian you have also two exe files - no virus, no Trojan, be sure; anyway sorry for the dimension (> 10 Mb) - with animation and speech to explain the simulation. Looking at the animation, please enlarge the window, for a better view.
