    Mon domaine de recherche peut être défini par deux thèmes : les relations Hommes-milieux, et l’agrobiodiversité. J’analyse comment les deux composantes du concept de biodiversité, les diversités culturelle et biologique, interagissent, et comment elles peuvent constituer un potentiel d’adaptation pour des sociétés confrontées à des changements de plus en plus rapides et globaux.

    I am interested in how changes in biodiversity and environmental conditions (atmospheric carbon dioxide, temperature, precipitation) affect plant-soil interactions, with a particular focus on plant litter and decomposer organisms. The main research goal is a mechanistic understanding of the drivers of biogeochemical cycles using experimental approaches in the field (alpine, temperate, Mediterranean and tropical forest ecosystems) and the laboratory.

    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.

    @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.

    Research goals

    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.
