Adaptation to aridity of soudano-sahelian rodents
presentation of a research project

Information is provided about a research project conducted by Bruno Sicard,
one of the scientists of the team.

The question is bound to obtaining a better understanding of the adaptation of 
soudano-sahelian rodents to aridity.

The text provides the context of the research project; the figure outlines the
scientist's synthesis of the physiological mechanisms involved in the adaptation
to aridity.
