Person formerly associated with this organization

The unit of Social Ecology of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) is interested in the organisation of animal societies, in the underlying physiological and ethological mechanisms as well as in the adaptive value of collective patterns which are put in an ecological perspective.

With regard to marine research, there is specific expertise with regard to certain tuna species.
