Within the GenoMite project, Maeva will involved in the preservation of a collection of strains of acaraids. She will take part in the definition of protocols and will conduct experiments on the answer of acarids to plant (bean) hydric stress:
- defining experiments protocols, and then supervising them;
- demographic monitoring of acarids placed in a confined arena defined on bean leaves;
- estimating fitness parameters (fertility, lifetime, sex-ratio, etc.).
