Coordinated collective motion in groups of animals is seen across taxa but its adaptive significance in avoiding predation is not well supported by empirical work. Here we used computer-generated prey to manipulate and control prey behaviour, and show that these prey are selected to evolve coordinated group behaviours when attacked by bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus).
