Worker size diversity does not improve colony success in the ant Temnothorax nylanderi

Social groups consist of individuals that differ from one another, and many studies show that this diversity improves group efficiency. In social insects, size diversity can, for example, improve the efficiency of foraging, nest building, brood rearing and production of young queens. Thus, colonies that re more diverse are generally also more efficient. Romain Honorio […]

Environmental and ecological risks in southern countries

The interdisciplinary program “Environmental and Ecological Risks in the South” builds directly upon the existing, long-term research partnership that we have with our colleagues from developing and emerging countries. Indeed, one of the critical issues in research today is how to reconcile economic development with the preservation of the ecological integrity of the environment.To meet […]

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 […]
