    Title:Pest Management Across Scales: Insight From Mountainous Tropical Agroscapes.

    Context: the tropical Andes is a world full of gradients that occur at several spatial scales. At the crop scale, a mosaic of spatial and temporal microclimates exists due to the high diversity of crop plants and the diel temperature changes. At the landscape scale, the diversities of land-management and land-use produce a gradient of landscape complexity. Finally, at the human-community scale, there is a wide diversity and combinations of human cultures related to historical contingency. This combination of abiotic-, biotic- and human-related gradients makes the tropical Andes an attractive playground for ecologists who are interested in understanding the effects and interactions of these drivers on agroecosystems.

    Goal: I aim at identifying the drivers of pest control across these three spatial scales in order to propose practical solutions for the local farmer communities. Each chapter focuses on a specific scale, with its particular set of drivers of pest control.

    Chapter 1: At the crop scale, temperatures vary tremendously both spatially and temporally, which impacts the development and emergence of pests. To cope with this highly fluctuating environment, we expect species to have developed a variety of developmental and phenological adaptations. We integrated, for the first time, slow-fast thermal strategies into a mechanistic predictive framework. The model calibrated with the observed individual thermal strategies showed a high accuracy in phenological predictions. This model can therefore be used to accurately predict the emergence of pests in the Andean context. Read more...

    Chapter 2: At the landscape scale, we aim at identifying potential trade-offs and synergies between landscape characteristics and agrochemical use on insect diversity and functions. We are especially interested in the potentially opposite effect of these two drivers on arthropod pests and pollinators, which both ultimately influence crop yield.

    Chapter 3: At the human-community scale, we aim at assessing whether agrochemical resellers are responsible for pesticide overuse in the Andes. Reseller knowledge on common pests and the quality of their recommendations will be evaluated.

    Chapter 4: At the human-community and landscape scale, we aim at understanding how the perception of ecosystem services and the landscape can be influenced by the traditional knowledge of indigenous and non-indigenous farmers.

    Altogether, these different chapters will provide new insights in several areas of natural and human sciences, along with practical solutions to be included into an integrated pest management program.

    • Transfert horizontal de gène, résistance antibiotique et évolution post-transfert

    Nous travaillons actuellement sur les règles de circulation des gènes par transfert horizontal. Le transfert horizontal est un mécanisme qui contribue fortement à l'évolution des génomes procaryotes mais tous les gènes ne sont pas dans tous les génomes. Il existe donc des facteurs qui favorisent ou limitent les transferts et les orientent. Les recherches que nous conduisons actuellement visent à étudier le rôle de ces facteurs à différentes échelles temporelles et spatiales. Nous nous intéressons en priorité, mais pas en exclusivité, aux transferts de gènes de résistance aux antibiotiques : les données et connaissance les concernant sont abondantes, la manipulation des pressions de sélection en laboratoire est aisée et nos résultats ont potentiellement des applications plus ou moins directes pour la gestion du problème de santé publique que représente la propagation des résistances antibiotiques.

    Les questions auxquelles nous essayons de répondre actuellement sont :

    • Quels sont les facteurs (écologie, pression de sélection, géographie…) qui déterminent les prévalences de gènes de résistances à l’échelle mondiale ?
    • Quels sont les facteurs (partage de niche écologique, association à des éléments génétiques mobiles, similarité de contexte génomique, distance phylogénétique entre hôte) qui favorisent les transferts horizontaux ?
    • L’usage de codons du gène transféré affecte-il la fonctionnalité de ce gène dans le génome récepteur ?
    • Le transfert horizontal d’un gène peut-il entrainer une évolution compensatoire ?
    • L’évolution post-transfert est-elle détectable à différentes échelles temporelles ?

    Les approches utilisées sont la mesure de fitness de collections de mutants et de gènes, l'évolution expérimentale, la génomique bactérienne et la génomique comparative.

    • Propagation des hypermutateurs dans les populations bactériennes

    Les hypermutateurs sont des génotypes bactériens dont le taux de mutation ponctuel est plus élevé (10 à 1000 fois) que dans le reste de l’espèce. Des modèles théoriques prédisent qu’ils ont un avantage et se propagent dans les populations qui se trouvent loin de leur optimum adaptatif. En effet, dans cette situation, la proportion de mutations avantageuses parmi toutes les mutations générées est plus importante ; les hypermutateurs ont donc un avantage transitoire en augmentant à l’approvisionnement en mutation avantageuse puis ils augmentent en fréquence en raison de la liaison génétique entre le déterminant génétique de l’hypermutation et la mutation avantageuse générée. Les conditions de propagation des hypermutateurs ont été étudiées par des approches théoriques et par des approches expérimentales qui mettent en compétition un hypermutateur avec son ancêtre mais il existe très peu d’approches expérimentales où l’apparition et la propagation d’hypermutateurs a été suivie dans plusieurs conditions environnementales. Nous avons mis en place un dispositif d’évolution expérimentale qui permet de faire cela pour les conditions environnementales suivantes : doses subinhibitrices de gentamicine et forte salinité.

    Dans le cadre de cette approche, nous posons les questions suivantes :

    • La probabilité et la vitesse de propagation des hypermutateurs dépend-elle du type de stress et de la largeur de la base génétique d’adaptation à ce stress ?
    • Comment déterminer la nature et la base génétique de l’adaptation par une approche « évoluer et reséquencer » ?
    • L’évolution en présence de concentrations subinhibitrices de gentamicine conduit-elle à des niveaux élevés de résistance ?
    • Quel est le rôle de l’hétérogénéité de taux de mutation le long du génome dans l’évolution parallèle entre populations indépendante ?
    • Pollution microplastique, bactéries pathogènes et résistance antibiotique.

    Les plastiques, en usage ou après usage, se dégradent et libèrent dans leur environnement immédiat des nano- et microparticules. Ces particules sont transportées à longue distance par l’eau ou l’air, peuvent pénétrer dans tous les organismes vivants et représentent un danger direct pour la santé humaine, animale et végétale. Ces particules peuvent également se convertir en support pour la formation de biofilm qui peuvent contenir des espèces bactériennes pathogènes pour certaines espèces animales et/ou pour les humains. Nous nous intéressons au rôle potentiel des micro-plastiques comme vecteur de pathogènes en utilisant Vibrio anguillarum comme modèle bactérien et des microparticules de polystyrène, polypropylène et polyéthylène téréphtalate.

    Dans ce contexte scientifique, nous posons les questions suivantes :

    • Quelle est la variabilité intraspécifique d’adhérence de anguillarum aux microparticules de plastique ? Peut-on identifier les déterminants génétiques de cette adhérence ?
    • Quelles sont les espèces bactériennes composant les biofilms sur les microparticules ? Comment cette composition varie-t-elle au cours des saisons et au travers des environnements marins ou côtier ?
    • Les biofilms associés aux microplastiques présentent-ils une surreprésentation de certaines espèces ou de certains gènes (résistance aux antibiotiques par exemple) par rapport au microbiote environnant ?
    • La composition des biofilms associés aux microplastiques affecte-t-elle l’adhésion de la bactérie pathogène anguillarum?
    • Les biofilms associés aux microplastiques sont-ils des points chauds de transfert horizontal ?

    Mots clés:

    transfert horizontal de gène, résistance aux antibiotiques, effet en fitness de la variation synonyme, usage des codons, évolution expérimentale, génomique bactérienne, biofilms, pollution microplastique.

     

    Research topics

    • Horizontal gene transfer, antibiotic resistance and post-transfer evolution

    We are currently working on the horizontal transfer traffic rules. Horizontal transfer is a mechanism that strongly contributes to the evolution of prokaryotic genomes but all genes are not found in all genomes. There are therefore factors that promote or limit transfers and direct them. Our current research aims to study the role of these factors at different temporal and spatial scales. We are primarily, but not exclusively, interested in the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes: data and knowledge about them are abundant, the manipulation of selection pressures in the laboratory is easy, and our results have potentially more or less direct applications for the management of the public health problem represented by the spread of antibiotic resistance.

    The questions we are currently trying to answer are:

    - What are the factors (ecology, selection pressure, geography...) that determine the prevalences of resistance genes on a global scale?

    • - What are the factors (ecological niche sharing, association with mobile genetic elements, genomic context similarity, phylogenetic distance between hosts) that favor horizontal transfers?
    • - Does codon usage of the transferred gene affect the functionality of that gene in the recipient genome?
    • - Can horizontal transfer of a gene lead to compensatory evolution?
    • - Is post-transfer evolution detectable at different time scales?

    The approaches used are fitness measurement of mutant and gene collections, experimental evolution, bacterial genomics and comparative genomics.

    • Propagation of hypermutators in bacterial populations

    Hypermutators are bacterial genotypes with a higher point mutation rate (10 to 1000 times) than the rest of the species. Theoretical models predict that they have an advantage and spread in populations that are far from their adaptive optimum. This is because in this situation, the proportion of advantageous mutations among all generated mutations is greater; thus, hypermutators have a transient advantage by increasing in supply of advantageous mutation and then increase in frequency due to the genetic linkage between the genetic determinant of the hypermutation and the generated advantageous mutation. The conditions of hypermutator propagation have been studied by theoretical approaches and by experimental approaches that put a hypermutator in competition with its ancestor but there are very few experimental approaches where the appearance and propagation of hypermutators has been followed under several environmental conditions. We have set up an experimental evolutionary setup that does this for the following environmental conditions: subinhibitory doses of gentamicin and high salinity.

    In this approach, we ask the following questions:

    • Does the probability and rate of hypermutator spread depend on the type of stress and the width of the genetic basis for adaptation to that stress?
    • How can the nature and genetic basis of adaptation be determined by an "evolve and resequence" approach?
    • Does evolution in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of gentamicin lead to high levels of resistance?
    • What is the role of mutation rate heterogeneity along the genome in parallel evolution between independent populations?
    • Microplastic pollution, pathogenic bacteria and antibiotic resistance.

    Plastics, in use or after use, degrade and release nano- and micro-particles into their immediate environment. These particles are transported over long distances by water or air, can penetrate all living organisms and represent a direct danger for human, animal and plant health. These particles can also become a surface where biofilm forms which may contain bacterial species pathogenic to certain animal species and/or humans. We are interested in the potential role of micro-plastics as pathogen vectors using Vibrio anguillarum as a bacterial model and polystyrene, polypropylene and polyethylene terephthalate microparticles.

    In this scientific context, we ask the following questions:

    • What is the intraspecific variability of anguillarum adherence to plastic microparticles? Can we identify the genetic determinants of this adhesion?
    • What are the bacterial species composing biofilms on microparticles? How does this composition vary over the seasons and across marine or coastal environments?
    • Do microplastic-associated biofilms show an over-representation of certain species or genes (e.g. antibiotic resistance) relative to the surrounding microbiota?
    • Does the composition of microplastic-associated biofilms affect the adhesion of the pathogenic bacterium anguillarum?
    • Are microplastic-associated biofilms hotspots for horizontal transfer?

    Key words:

    Horizontal gene transfer, antibiotic resistance, fitness effect of synonymous variation, codon usage, experimental evolution, bacterial genomics, biofilms, microplastic pollution.

    Sujet de thèse :

    Qui coexiste avec qui ? Qui est en compétition avec qui ? Qui coopère avec qui ? Les interactions écologiques sont des processus majeurs qui influencent la coexistence des espèces et le fonctionnement des écosystèmes. Pour autant, les caractères phénotypiques qui confèrent aux espèces (ou aux génotypes) une aptitude à la compétition (ou à la coopération) élevée restent mal connus. C’est en particulier le cas pour les végétaux, tant sur les espèces sauvages que cultivées.

    De plus, la simplification des agrosystèmes couplée à l’utilisation massive d’intrants lors de la révolution verte a engendré une hausse sans précédent des rendements qui a permis de répondre aux besoins alimentaires des populations des pays industrialisés.

    Une des solutions envisagées pour limiter l’usage d’intrants, tout en maintenant des niveaux de production acceptables, est de réintroduire de la diversité dans les systèmes cultivés. Cette diversification des agrosystèmes peut se faire à l’échelle interspécifique comme dans les systèmes de culture associées (Bedoussac et al., 2015) mais aussi à l’échelle intraspécifique en cultivant des génotypes d’une même espèce en association au sein d’une parcelle.Cependant, augmenter la diversité dans une culture n’est pas toujours synonyme d’un meilleur fonctionnement de cette dernière. Les recherches doivent donc être poursuivies afin de concevoir des mélanges variétaux permettant d’assurer une productivité suffisante dans des agrosystèmes durables (Litrico & Violle 2015).

    Mon projet de thèse vise à comprendre par des approches comparatives en écologie fonctionnelle, qui s’appuie sur l’étude les variations de caractères, l’adaptation des plantes à leur environnement ainsi que les interactions qu’elles mettent en place. L’utilisation des traits fonctionnels est une manière d’appréhender la question de façon générique sous l’hypothèse que des traits candidats sont valides quelle que soit l’espèce (ou le génotype) considéré. J’étudie les interaction mises en place entre différents génotypes de blé dur afin de comprendre quels sont les mécanismes écologiques qui sous-tendent la relation diversité – productivité au sein de couverts monospécifiques. Je m’intéresse particulièrement aux traits racinaires qui restent encore peu étudiés à l’échelle des plantes cultivées.

    @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, 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.

    Intérêts personnels
    Mes travaux portent sur les réponses adaptatives des plantes herbacées pérennes aux sécheresses estivales sévères de type méditerranéen. Avec des approches écophysiologiques et agronomiques (menées à l’INRA), ce travail se positionne en collaboration étroite avec l’écologie fonctionnelle (Forecast - CNRS). L’objectif principal est d’analyser le fonctionnement des espèces et communautés herbacées sous contrainte hydrique forte dans le cadre du changement climatique. Un cadre conceptuel et terminologique unifié des stratégies adaptatives des plantes à la sécheresse a été proposé en 2018. Les études portent notamment sur la stratégie de dormance estivale et plus largement sur la généricité du compromis fonctionnel entre potentiel de croissance et survie au stress.

    Personal interests

    As an ecophysiologist, my research is focused on the adaptive responses of perennial herbaceous plants to severe summer droughts as occurring in Mediterranean and semi-arid areas. I have particularly analysed the adaptive strategies to cope with severe water deficit, such as summer dormancy. I am now developing collaborative research projects with geneticists and ecologists to understand plant traits and strategies associated with drought survival with application to plant breeding in forage species for better adaptation to increasing aridity under climate change.
