Neuroethology of olfaction “NeO” Team

Team publications Team members Our experimental and modelling studies aim at understanding the mechanisms involved in the recognition of the olfactory signal and its translation in a behavioural response adapted to the environment and the physiological state of insects.These studies concern the processes of sensory coding, from the chemo-electrical transduction in the olfactory receptor neurones to […]

Chemoreception and Adaptation “CreA” Team

Team publications Team members The team investigates the mechanisms of olfactory and gustatory reception in the peripheral sensory systems and their plasticity in a changing biotic and abiotic environment.We take into account the evolutionary, adaptive and ecophysiological / ecotoxicological contexts. Our questions are : What are the chemical landscapes the insects leave in ? What are […]

Social Species in their Environments : Adaptation and Evolution “ESEAE” Team

Team publications Team members The aim of the ESEAE team is to understand how social life influences the mechanisms of evolution and adaptation of social species, their biodiversity, and their interactions with other species.  Environmental changes are a central theme. Our biological models are mainly termites and ants. We use an integrative approach that focuses on morphology, physiology, […]

Microbial Communities in Continental ecosystems “CoMIC” Team

Team publications Team members We study the microbial communities of terrestrial and aquatic continental ecosystems in an interdisciplinary framework that blends microbiology and molecular biology, ecology, health and social sciences. Specifically, our research looks at (i) the diversity, functioning and roles of microbial communities within continental ecosystems, and (ii) the vulnerability of these communities to […]
