    Thèmes de recherche

    Mes travaux visent à comprendre les mécanismes qui décrivent et expliquent la sensibilité des espèces et des communautés à l’altération spatio-temporelle de l’habitat dans des environnements sous contraintes anthropiques. Deux thèmes sont privilégiés :

    (1) les réponses des communautés d’organismes face à l’hétérogénéité du paysage en focalisant sur la coexistence interspécifique, les interactions prédateurs-proies, l’utilisation des ressources (nourriture, eau…) et les déterminants comportementaux à l’origine de la structuration spatiale de la biodiversité.

    (2) le contexte socio-écologique (aires protégées, zones tampons et zones multi-usages…) dans lequel les communautés d’organismes évoluent.
