Investigation of the entomological mechanisms and physico-chemical phenomena at work in the infestation of glue-pastes by Stegobium paniceum

Programme start: 2008 CICRP: Nicolas Bouillon (director), Fabien Fohrer Partnership(s): Aurélia Chevalier, doctor of conservation-restoration, Arts et Métiers-Paris Tech This programme is an offshoot of a larger programme on Stegobium paniceum and focuses on glue-pastes and the risk of insect infestation for traditionally relined paintings. It also encompasses
