    Mon activité de recherche porte sur les aspects écologiques et évolutifs des interactions entre espèces. Les deux thèmes principaux que j'étudie sont les interactions symbiotiques entre plantes, fourmis et champignons, et les interactions entre ingénieurs d'écosystèmes dans la structuration du paysage.

     

    My research activity is focused on the ecological and evolutionary aspects of inter-specific interactions. My two main study topics are the symbiotic interactions among plants, ants and fungi, and the interaction among ecosystem engineers in landscape patterns.

    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

    Mes travaux de recherche portent sur divers aspects de l'écologie fonctionnelle du système sol-plantes-herbivores, en particulier:
    - le processus de décomposition de la matière organique
    - les stratégies des plantes, et en particulier le rôle des composés secondaires produits par les plantes.
    - les impacts fonctionnels de l'herbivorie
    - les rôles de la faune du sol et deschampignons mycorhiziens
    Mes activités d'enseignements sont principalement centrées sur l'écologie et la biologie des organismes, notamment la botanique. Je suis particulièrement investi dans la formation des futurs enseignants.

    Enseignements

    J'effectue actuellement mes enseignements au sein de l'Université Montpellier, où j'interviens principalement dans les filières de préparation au concours de l'enseignement. Je suis en particulier co-responsable du parcours Agrégation du master 2 BEE. Je suis également responsable d'une UE d'Ecologie fonctionnelle (L2).
    J'enseigne principalement l'écologie et la biologie des organismes, végétaux ou animaux, avec un fort intérêt pour l'enseignement de terrain.

    My research interests lie at the interface between population dynamics, quantitative ecology, conservation and life history evolution. I mostly focus on empirical work, on wild animal populations, but I also do some methodological development and a bit of theoretical work.

    @Th_Lenormand

    My principal area of research is Evolutionary genetics and evolutionary ecology. I have a broad expertise in evolutionary biology, genetics and ecology. I have been working on adaptation and mutation (15 publications), local adaptation (12), evolution of genetic systems (14), evolution of gene duplicates (5), speciation (8), genetic conflicts (4), dispersal (3), biotic interactions (8), statistics and fitness measures (4). I have been working with many empirical systems (vertebrates, insects, crustaceans, fungi, plants, helminths, bacteria), in the lab and in the field.

    Currently, my scientific activity rests on three axes: first I do theoretical work (theoretical population genetics, statistics, and bioinformatics development). I am particularly interested currently on the evolution of gene expression and on fitness landscape models. Second, I run a wet lab using the small crustacean Artemia as a model system. I’m particularly interested currently on asexuality and biotic interactions. Third, I run a wet lab in microbiology (mainly on Escherichia coli but also S. cerevisiae and some Artemia symbionts and parasites). I am particularly interested currently on testing fitness landscape models.
