Jérôme Orivel

Research interests

I am interested in the mechanisms underlying species distribution and the evolution of interspecific interactions. With social insects as study systems and especially ants, current projects focus on the processes affecting community assembly rules in leaf-litter ants, the evolution of specific, multipartite interactions and the diversity and evolution of venom peptides in ants.
