I revisited the environmental filtering metaphor in urban ecology context, in particular zooming on urban parks in Mediterranean Region (Naples and Montpellier cities).Even though urban parks are considered as biodiversity hot-spots within the cities, they are usually still far from reaching this status. Indeed, spatial and temporal landscape discontinuities, as well as the management disturbances may be exacerbated, causing decays of soil biodiversity.
The main goals of the thesis are to understand whether the collembolan species and trait communities are shaped by: 1- factors which are indicators of management practices of urban parks; 2- the landscape and the temporal heterogeneity of the studied sites.
