Dr Audrey Dussutour
has been awarded The Journal of Experimental Biology's 2008 Outstanding Paper Prize. This annual prize recognises the contribution of an outstanding young scientist to an exceptional research paper. Audrey's paper, co-authored with Prof Steve Simpson, reveals that individual ants forage for the collective stomach - responding most strongly to nutritional needs of larvae.
