Nos recherches

Le laboratoire de physiologie évolutive et adaptative cherche à comprendre comment les changements de l'environnement affectent les organismes, et comment ceux-ci peuvent s'adapter et évoluer. Nous étudions essentiellement les effets de polluants aquatiques sur les poissons, sur leur physiologie, leur comportement et les mécanismes moléculaires sous-jacents.

Our researches

The Laboratory of Evolutionary and Adaptive Physiology aims to investigate how animals can cope with new environmental conditions (such as pollutants, temperature and salinity) to acclimate, adapt and evolve in a changing environment. It integrates different levels of biological organisation : physiological, biochemical, behavioral and molecular.
