How do termite queens and kings stay healthy for decades?

Reproductive and worker castes of termites differ greatly in their morphology and behavior but also in their fertility and longevity. Kings and queens of the highly social termite, Macrotermes natalensis, live for decades, with the queen laying thousands of eggs per day. Workers are sterile and only live a few weeks. In our HFSP project, we investigated the regulatory mechanisms involved in generating such diverse phenotypes. Our previous results indicate that well-regulated transcription allows reproductive castes to overcome simultaneously several well-known hallmarks of aging.

Persistence and success of the Sahel desertification narrative

When the Sahel is mentioned today, this semi-arid African region between the Sahara and Sudanian Africa is often associated with the notion of desertification. But what do the latest advances in environmental science tell us about this desertification? To what extent is the “narrative” of Sahel desertification based on scientific results, or on other mechanisms, of a more political nature?

About Publications

Our work is published in recognized and quality journals. A large part of our work is done in collaboration with other laboratories, in particular foreigners for 60% of our publications. We must underline the high number of review articles, which greatly contribute to the construction of general and theoretical knowledge, and which are often published in prestigious journals such as Trends in Ecology and Evolution , < i> Annual Reviews , Global Change Biology . or Advances in Ecological Research .
