Small, marine hermaphroditic worms (Polychaeta) are capable of sophisticated forms of reciprocation: sexual partners exchange egg clutches and lay approximately as many eggs as they have received from the partners.

An article by Laura Picchi and Maria Cristina Lorenzi (LEEC-Laboratoire d'Ethologie Expérimentale et Comparée) in collaboration with Guénaël Cabanes (LIPN-Laboratoire d’Informatique de Paris-Nord) and a former student of the Master in Ethology, published in Current Biology.

13/09/2018 The Universite Paris 13 and the Universidad Autónoma de Tlaxcala, UAT co-have signed an agreement to facilitate the exchange of researchers and teachers between both etablissements. For this occasion, different administrative representatives of the Universidad Autónoma de Tlaxcala came to Paris 13 to hand over the signed convention and to discuss further collaborations. The link between Paris 13 and the UAT was initially based on a longstanding and fruitful scientific collaboration between the Laboratoire d Ethologie (LEEC) of Paris 13 and the Centro Tlaxcala de Biología de la Conducta, CTBC of the UAT, focusing on the development of individual differences in behavior of small mammals.

    Une nouvelle espèce d'araignée a été découverte

David Sillam-Dussès (MCF HDR, chaire d’excellence, membre du LEEC), ayant découvert une nouvelle espèce d’araignée lors de l’une de ses missions en Guyane, voit son nom attribué à ce joli arachnide : dorénavant, il s’appellera donc Charinus sillami.

Deux scientifiques ont travaillé sur cette araignée, Florian Reveillion et Pierre-Olivier Maquart. Vous pouvez voir deux exemples de cet amblypyge sur la photo ci-contre, ou lire leur article pour en savoir plus sur animal.
