Our work on tsetse flies thermal biology during feeding is out!

I'm very happy to announce that my paper dealing with tsetse flies thermal biology during feeding has been accepted in Journal of Thermal Biology! This study was completed during my PhD in Tours, under the supervision of Claudio R. Lazzari. "During feeding on warm-blooded hosts, haematophagous insects are exposed to thermal stress due to the ingestion of a meal which temperature may highly exceed their own body temperature. In order to avoid overheating and its subsequent deleterious effects, these insects respond by setting up molecular protective mechanisms such as heat shock proteins synthesis or by using thermoregulative strategies. Moreover, the duration of contact with the host depends
