Fabrice Requier and collaborators published in Trend in Ecology and Evolution an article highlighting the essential role of non-bees pollinators, too often neglected in studies on pollination, in particular for locally important crops. They also studied nocturnal pollination that occurs when bees are back in the hive and is thus performed by non-bees pollinators. To read the article: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tree.2022.10.006.
A tenure track Junior Professorship in Entomological sciences for sustainable innovations is opened at IRD. The objective is to explore the biodiversity of insects and their life history traits in order to develop and optimize a sustainable insect rearing that meets the needs of local populations and agronomic actors, in partnership with Africa and/or Latin America. . Researches and teaching will be done at the University Paris-Saclay, France, respectively in the research unit EGCE (at IDEEV), and in AgroParisTech. To prepare their project, candidates are invited to write to P. Le Gall (email@example.com), F. Marion-Poll (firstname.lastname@example.org) ou J. Filée (email@example.com). Applications have to be submitted no later than Septembre 15th, 2022.
