All our congratulations go to Samuel Rosat, Ph.D. student at Polytechnique Montréal directed by François Soumis and Issmail El Hallaoui, who obtained a scholarship for an international internship in Italy for a period of six months. This scholarship is awarded by the FRQNT.

We care more about how pets, dogs, cats, laboratory animals, mice and rats and other caged guinea pigs are treated, but also, of course, the animals of the food industry; farm animals, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks and geese. How the study of animal behavior is useful when asking if we treat them well all these animals that feed us? Below are explanations of Luc-Alain Giraldeau, Professor of Biological Sciences at UQAM.

We have seen that the rats were able to transmit the odor information of what could be eaten without risk, there are also bees that communicate with each other the location and amount of flowers to exploit. But beyond this ephemeral transmission of information some animals are able to forge genuine cultural food traditions. Below are explanations of Luc-Alain Giraldeau biologist at UQAM.
