Etude du comportement d'une araignée face à un leurre

Study of the behaviour of a spider faced with a lure. This device makes it possible to study the influence of cuticular compounds on interactions between spiders, which are generally solitary. These compounds could play a major role in the transition from the social phase of juveniles to the solitary phase of older individuals. Research scientists are trying to identify the fundamental mechanisms that favour the emergence of cooperation between individuals leading to the formation of lasting societies.
