Using ant societies as a study model, his research project aims to identify the physiological, behavioral and ecological determinants that predict the formation of reproductive hierarchies and the emergence of division of labor in animal societies.

Renaud Bastien joins the CRCA as a CNRS researcher !

Renaud BASTIEN

To produce a response adapted to their environment, animals must perceive and integrate the information contained in it. Vision, in particular, is crucial in many species to directly acquire spatial information. Renaud will study how the information contained in the visual field is integrated by the individual to control its movement.

Congratulations to Aurore Avarguès-Weber !

Aurore Avarguès-Weber, researcher at the CRCA-CBI, was awarded the CNRS Bronze Medal last night for her work on bee cognition.

This distinction rewards the first works of researchers who are specialists in their field. It also represents an encouragement by the CNRS to pursue well initiated and already fruitful research.

CRCA congratulates Aurore on this great award !
