    F Criscuolo and M Enstipp have been working for two days in the Alpine swift colonies in Bienne and Solothurn (Switzerland) in early June. This work was conducted within the long-term collaboration that we have with Dr P Bize who manage the longitudinal following since 2001 of those populations. One of the aim is to better understand how telomere dynamics explain individual variation in fitness in those long-lived birds.

    S Zahn went for a field work end of May beginning of June to the Lautaret in the context of a collaboration with Dr Benjamin Rey and Dr Aurélie Cohas (LBBE Université de Lyon I) to work on telomeres in marmots.
