    Thierry Lefevre
    Biology Department, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA
    Biol Lett 8:230-3. 2012
    ..Our findings suggest that D. melanogaster relies more heavily on behavioural avoidance as defence against wasp parasitism than D. simulans, and that this may compensate for a lack of physiological defence...
  3. doi Beyond nature and nurture: phenotypic plasticity in blood-feeding behavior of Anopheles gambiae s.s. when humans are not readily accessible
    Thierry Lefevre
    Génétique et Evolution des Maladies Infectieuses, Montpellier, France
    Am J Trop Med Hyg 81:1023-9. 2009

    Thierry Lefevre

    Ecol Lett 13:1485-93. 2010
    ..Our results provide evidence that infected animals may indeed use medicine as a defence against parasites, and that such medication may target an individual's offspring rather than the individual itself...

    Thierry Lefevre
    Biology Department, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 278:751-9. 2011
