Bonne année à vous tous, et merci de nous retrouver pour ce premier épisode de l’année 2019. On démarre avec un format que nous aimons tous beaucoup, le roue libre. Une prestation bien féminine ce soir car Eléa, Claire et moi même animons la soirée. Une soirée qui s’annonce bien légère, car je vais vous parler d’un animal “aérien” par ses envols et bien marin pour tout le reste, la méduse. Claire va nous parler d’un musée scientifique, comme à chaque roue-libre, et enfin notre reine des quiz va briller de mille feux et nous éclairer de ses lumières sur les ampoules électriques.

Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
