    I am a PhD candidate, working in movement ecology, landscape ecology and animal behavior. My PhD project aims to understand the effects of agricultural practices and landscapes on the behavior of local wildlife, using roe deer as an example species in the South West of France.

    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

    I use my modeling and data analysis skills to study the spatiotemporal dynamics of wolf and lynx populations in France to improve their conservation and management. Examples of projects on these species are: reduction of lynx-vehicles collisions, landscape management impacts, modeling of wolf demography, occupancy analysis, population and individual monitoring (e.g., camera traps, genetic analyses), impact of wolf legal killings on the population, prey-predator interactions. I also have strong skills in individual-based modeling.

    Thèmes de recherche
    Ecologie comportementale spatiale (Movement Ecology): Mécanismes d'orientation; référentiels et processus de mémorisation; utilisation de l'espace et sélection de l'habitat.

    Movement-based KDE Softwares (can also perform classical KDE if data are weakly correlated)
    (Benhamou & Cornélis 2010, Benhamou 2011, Benhamou & Riotte-Lambert 2012, Benhamou 2018, 2023). Based on Gaussian (BRB/MKDE) or von Mises-Fisher (LonLat and ORI3D versions) kernels.

    BRB/MKDE (Biased Random Bridges for Movement-based Kernel Density Estimation): Computation of Utilization Distribution (UD), and possibly Intensity Distribution (ID) and Recursion Distribution (RD), with optional boundary management, habitat selection pre-analyses, and (for mountain environments) slope-based area corrections.
    BRB/MKDE_LonLat (Biased Random Bridges for Movement-based Kernel Density Estimation without metric projection): Computation of UD, and possibly ID and RD, with optional boundary management and habitat selection analyses, for dealing with locations expressed in decimal degrees (longitude and latitude) over an extent that is too large to be properly represented on a planar map (very large home ranges, migration corridors). Example showing the migration corridor of great shearwater.
    BRB/MKDE_ORI3D (Biased Random Bridges for Movement-based Kernel Density Estimation for orientations in 3D space): Computation of UD, and possibly ID and RD, of orientation in 3D space (either 3D heading, i.e. azimuth and elevation angle, or posture, i.e. elevation and bank angles) for fine-scale (i.e. locomotion) movement studies; Based on the same principles as BRB_MKDE_LonLat as azimuth and bank angle behave as longitudes, and elevation angle behaves as a latitude.

    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

    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, local adaptation, evolution of genetic systems (sex, recombination, sex chromosomes), evolution of gene duplicates, speciation, genetic conflicts, dispersal, biotic interactions (parasites, microbiota), statistics and fitness measures. 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 (on sex chromosomes or in asexuals). Second, I work on small crustaceans Artemia and Daphnia. I’m particularly interested currently on sex-asex transitions, biotic interactions and adaptation to temperature. Third, I do experimental evolution on E. coli. I'm particularly interested on testing fitness landscape models, adaptation to different doses of antibiotics, and coevolution of species coexisting by frequency dependence.

    My PhD combined theoretical and applied research questions. For the first I am focusing on the influence of sociality on individual movement decisions and collective foraging strategies of griffon vultures. For the latter, I try to observe if those birds show avoidance behaviour of wind turbines. To do so I am relying on two type of technology: radar and GPS telemetry.
