Araignée de stade juvénile au cours d'un test de socialité

Juvenile spider during a sociality test. Two young spiders are placed in this arena in order to study their interactions. Spiders are generally solitary, but go through a temporary social period during the juvenile phase prior to dispersion. Research scientists are trying to identify the fundamental mechanisms that favour the emergence of cooperation between individuals leading to the formation of lasting societies.
