	%X Wireless sensor networks are consisted of hundreds or
thousands of small sensors that have limited resources.
Energy-efficient techniques are the main issue of wireless sensor
networks. This paper proposes an energy efficient agent-based
framework in wireless sensor networks. We adopt biologically
inspired approaches for wireless sensor networks. Agent operates
automatically with their behavior policies as a gene. Agent aggregates
other agents to reduce communication and gives high priority to nodes
that have enough energy to communicate. Agent behavior policies are
optimized by genetic operation at the base station. Simulation results
show that our proposed framework increases the lifetime of each node.
Each agent selects a next-hop node with neighbor information and
behavior policies. Our proposed framework provides self-healing,
self-configuration, self-optimization properties to sensor nodes.
