Our lab recently had the pleasure of hosting researcher Yves Le Conte, Ph.D., research director at the Bees and Environment Research Unit at INRAE d'Avignon (Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment). During his stay, he gave a lecture on pheromones and social regulations of the honey bee, a field in which he is a pioneer. Listen to his lecture here (in french) →
