Aurélie COULON


Associate Professor in spatial ecology at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle                                                                                                                                                        

My research focuses on movement ecology: I study the factors influencing animal movements (especially dispersal) and gene flow, with a particular emphasis on landscape composition and structure. I also study how human-triggered landscape modifications like fragmentation affect animal movements; and the consequences on population functioning and structure. My research is hence tightly linked to the management/conservation of populations, and to landscape management (e.g. connectivity restoration, french Trame Verte et Bleue policy).

Ana 2021 small

Senior Researcher (Directrice de recherche 2) CNRS

My research lies at the interface between ecology and biological conservation, with the study of spatial biodiversity patterns as the unifying theme. Main current interests: large-scale conservation priorities; evolutionary community models; historical human footprint on biodiversity, with a focus on marine mammals.

Olivier DURIEZ

olivier duriez 2017Maitre de conférences à Université de Montpellier

J’étudie les mécanismes comportementaux liés au mouvement, gouvernant l'utilisation de l’habitat et leurs conséquences sur la dynamique des populations chez les oiseaux. J’utilise une approche intégrative de la biologie de la conservation, à l’interface avec l’écologie comportementale, physiologie et écologie des populations.

I study behavioural mechanisms related to movement, driving habitat use and their consequences on population dynamics in birds. I am using an integrative approach of conservation biology, at the interface with behavioural ecology, physiology and population ecology

Current Research

I work to reveal how animals perceive and adjust to their environment, and why this matters for populations and ecosystems. My model of choice: large herbivores. Because you can (relatively) easily monitor their behaviour in natura, and they have important ecosystem effects. Some have high societal and economical values, so my research sometimes matter beyond basic science. We (as humans) are making the world's climate different. How this affects organisms in the hottest applied ecological question. I do my share to bring an answer to it
