We propose in this paper, a polymorphic, hybrid multicast routing protocol for MANET. This new polymorphic protocol attempts to take benefit of the high efficiency of proactive behavior and the low cost of network traffic of the reactive behavior. The protocol is based on the principle of adaptability and multi-behavioral modes of operations. The proposed protocol is able to change behavior in different situations in order to improve certain metrics like the battery power. Extensive simulations
