Evolution, génomes, comportement et écologie

Laboratory presentation

The Evolution, Genome, Behavior and Ecology laboratory (EGCE) studies the biodiversity evolution using a multi-scale approach (from the genome to the species community). It combines experimentation and modeling. The study models are insects (bees, drosophiles, lepidoptera), xenopus, fish, amphibians. This research includes work on reproductive and food behaviors as well as adaptation to environmental change. The problems of global warming and anthropogenic environments raise major socio-economic issues: new food sources, biodiversity protection, bio-control (insect pests and vectors of human diseases). Programs are developed in partnership with the countries of the South by the researchers of the IRD members of the laboratory.
