MIMG_2054ATHIEU LIHOREAU

I am interested in the evolutionary relationships between brains, cognitive capacities and societies. What are the cognitive demands imposed by social life? How much information must be treated and processing power required? I use a comparative approach to answer these questions in insects exhibiting a wide range of social complexities, such as bees, cockroaches and  fruit flies.

I am an ethologist using network tools to study complex phenomena. My research focuses on social information transfer in animal groups and its consequences on social interactions. My current project aims at evaluating and modeling the role of social and competitive interactions on resource partitioning in bees.

I am interested in host-parasite interactions. My research focuses on honeybee parasites such as Nosema. My current project aims to evaluate the effects of pathogens on the behaviour, cognition and physiological development of bees.

I study spatial cognition in bees (honeybees, bumblebees, Osmia). My research aims at disentangling the influence of individual factors (such as age and foraging experience) and ecological factors (such as the contact with pesticides) in the navigation performances of major pollinators. I work in  co-tutelle between Toulouse and Sydney (Macquary University).

ANA MORAN (Undergrad)

img_0456I am interested in how organisms interact within ecosystems. My project aims at understanding how bees interact on flowers and whether these interactions impact their future foraging decisions in complex and dynamic environments.
