Surveys current research on information processing in insect societies. The first section concentrates on information flows between nestmates and on the effect of group size on the regulation of task allocation. The second section is focused on perception/behavioural thresholds. The structuring role of these thresholds in social life and also their determinants are discussed in depth. The last two sections develop different, though complementary, approaches which either put the stress on the individual complexity of information management or refer to some simplicity of decision rules associated with amplifying phenomena.
