Presentation

Mes thématiques de recherche couvrent différents aspects de l’écologie des invertébrés, relevant de l’écologie des communautés, de l’écologie fonctionnelle et de la taxonomie. En termes d’application des résultats de la recherche, je m’intéresse à l’agroécologie et à l’ingénierie écologique. Mes travaux s'articulent autour de trois axes fondamentaux : (1) l’influence des facteurs du milieu sur la diversité des organismes du sol et sur le cycle de la matière organique dans les écosystèmes terrestres ; (2) l’impact des activités anthropiques sur le fonctionnement des écosystèmes terrestres ; (3) la mise au point de systèmes de production écologiquement durables s’inspirant des processus écologiques qui règlent le fonctionnement des écosystèmes naturels.
My research interests cover various aspects of invertebrate ecology, including community ecology, functional ecology and taxonomy. In terms of applications of research results, I am interested in agroecology and ecological engineering. My work focuses on three main areas: (1) the influence of environmental factors on the diversity of soil organisms and the cycling of organic matter in terrestrial ecosystems; (2) the impact of anthropogenic activities on the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems; and (3) the development of ecologically sustainable production systems based on the ecological processes that regulate the functioning of natural ecosystems.
