Etude des comportements de deux araignées juvéniles au cours d’un test de socialité

Study of the behaviour of two juvenile spiders during a sociality test. Here, the research scientists are analysing their interactions and measuring the time that the individuals spend aggregated. Spiders are generally solitary, but go through a temporary social period during their juvenile phase, which then ceases during the dispersion phase. Research scientists are trying to identify the fundamental mechanisms that favour the emergence of cooperation between individuals leading to the formation of lasting societies.
