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 […]

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, […]

Evolutionary Ecophysiology “EPE” Team

Team publications Team members Studies in evolutionary ecology aims to understand how biological traits are controlled by natural and sexual selection. These studies examine how environmental selection pressures influence one hand the production and survival of young and secondly the dynamics of populations and ecosystems. These studies often ignore the physiological mechanisms involved in developmental processes […]

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 […]
