Welcome to the CEFE

The CEFE is currently the largest French research center in Ecology and Evolutionary Ecology. Our Mission: perform independent, fundamental scientific research on the dynamics of biodiversity, planetary environmental change, and sustainable development. The links between society and ecology is a theme of increasing importance in oour research.

Thèmes de recherche
 

Je m'intéresse au fonctionnement et à la dynamique des écosystèmes forestiers, en cherchant à comprendre en particulier comment les interactions biotiques intra et interspécifiques influencent leur réponse à la sécheresse.

Dans mon postodoctorat au sein de FORECAST, je travaille sur une expérimentation croisée de réduction des précipitations et d’éclaircie sur un taillis de chêne vert Méditerranéen suivie depuis 15 ans (http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/). J’analyse comment la compétition intraspécifique influence la productivité et l’utilisation d’eau du peuplement, la croissance et la mortalité des arbres ainsi que leur fonctionnement écophysiologique en réponse à la sécheresse.

Mes travaux précédents ont porté sur la phase de régénération en forêt méditerranéenne. J’ai étudié comment les interactions avec la végétation environnante – arbres adultes, strate arbustive ou herbacée – influencent le succès d’installation de plantules à travers des mécanismes de compétition pour les ressources, de facilitation ou d’allélopathie.

Ma recherche a des applications en termes de gestion pour l'adaptation des forêts au changement climatique, qui repose en grande partie sur le contrôle des interactions intra ou interspécifiques.

 

Research interest

In am interested in understanding how biotic interactions influence forest functioning and dynamics, in particular in response to drought.

My current postdoctoral work relies on a long-term rainfall exclusion experiment combined with thinning on a Mediterranean holm oak stand (http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/). This experiment allow me to investigate how increased drought and intraspecific competition affect stand-level productivity, water use and their response to annual drought. I also study how these factors modify tree-level growth and mortality risk, trying to disentangle the influence of tree size and neighbour competition. Finally, I seek to understand the underlying ecophysiological mechanisms.

My previous work focused on the seedling establishment phase in Mediterranean forests. I investigated how interactions with neighbouring overstory and understory species may affect seedling establishment success through resource competition, facilitation or allelopathic processes.

My research has an important applied component as forest management mainly relies on controlling intra or interspecific interactions through thinning, vegetation control or species selection.
