    Ph.D project:

    Sexual selection and the evolution of female ornaments:A study of female plumage colouration using comparative analyses and long-term data sets from blue tit populationDSC 6152 069s

    Supervisors:  Claire Doutrelant and Arnaud Grégoire

    Topic: My thesis focused on understanding the contribution of sexual selection in the evolution and maintenance of conspicuous colourations in female birds. 

    A first part tested how paternal care and female reproductive costs drove the evolution of female plumage colouration in songbirds, by the mean of a comparative study using spectrometry, avian visual models and life-history traits (Fargevieille et al. In prep).

     

    In a second part, a long-term project data set onblue tits (Cyanistes caeruleus) was used to test hypotheses related to the evolution of female ornamentation. Ten years of plumage colouration, from four populations were used to assess the evopairbluetitslution of female ornaments. Genetic correlation (Charmantier et al. 2017), relationships between colouration and survival rate or reproductive success (unpublished) were tested by the means of quantitative genetics, CMR analyses and within-study meta-analyses. Quantification of the degree of assortative mating at the population level - considering spatio-temporal variation - was also tested (Fargevieilleet al. 2017). It led to a more thorough study at the individual level trying to understand factors underlying assortative mating in ourpopulations (Fargevieille et al. In prep.).

    My research focuses on movement ecology: I study the factors influencing animal movements (especially dispersal) and gene flow, with a particular emphasis on landscape composition and structure. I also study how human-triggered landscape modifications like fragmentation affect animal movements; and the consequences on population functioning and structure. My research is hence tightly linked to the management/conservation of populations, and to landscape management (e.g. connectivity restoration, french Trame Verte et Bleue policy).

     THEMES DE RECHERCHE

    Mes thèmes de recherche concernent la phylogénie, la phylogéographie et l'évolution moléculaire à partir de l'analyse des séquences de gènes mitochondriaux et nucléaires. L’objectif est de répondre, à l’aide de l’outil moléculaire, à des questions de biodiversité et systématique évolutive à l’échelle des vertébrés (mammifères, amphibiens et reptiles). Je m’intéresse aussi à l’échelle temporelle (datations moléculaires) des différents niveaux de diversifications ce qui permet de confronter les inférences moléculaires avec les données morphologiques, paléontologiques et biogéographiques.

    For master students : your applications are very welcome. Note that I am trying to mentor a maximum of 2 students per year in order to warrant my implication in your projects. I am therefore unlikely to accept applications outside a project that I have advertised myself, without fundings, or without a clear match with one of my research interests. Therefore, please read cautiously the description of my research below before getting in touch, and join a letter explaining precisely which of my projects is of highest interest to you and why. In 2022, I will supervise two Msc students (M2), with projects on island bird biogeography and vertebrate road casualties. My preference will be directed towards students with good records in ecology and biodiversity management, with a strong interest for statistical data analysis. Projects will be released between july and october 2022.

    RESEARCH

    My research is focused on a comparative exploration of the role of multiple environmental drivers in shaping species distributions and diversity at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Most of my research is structured on the combined use of ecoinformatics methods (statistical analysis of large data sets) and naturalist expertise to understand empirical patterns of community composition in space and time.   

    - Composition and diversity of insular avifaunas. I use a framework based on ecological traits to understand the relative influences of landscape structure, habitat, and exotic species in shaping the current structure of bird communities on oceanic islands. 

    - Influence of landscape and habitat on the distributions of mediterranean reptiles. Relying on opportunistic data from the regional participative database Malpolon, maintained  by the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes since the 1980's, I investigate the determinants of spatial patterns in reptile distributions and diversity along regional gradients of climate, land use and land abandonment.

    - Interacting imprints of climate change and land use on biodiversity. Using multiple taxa and scales, I investigate how species' responses to historical and present land use change interact with their responses to climate change. 

     

    COLLABORATIVE WORK WITH STAKEHOLDERS

     

    Most of my interactions with biodiversity stakeholders are focused on data analysis to answer questions relative to the monitoring of human impacts on biodiversity.

    - Influence of management practices on waterbirds. In collaboration with the natural reserve of Hyères saltpans, I investigate the impact of water management practices on the temporal dynamics of waterbird species. 

    - Faunistic road casualties. I work with the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux and the CEREMA to explain and predict spatial patterns in road casualites. We exploit jointly multiple sources of protocoled, non-protocoled and citizen science data to identify mortality hotspots and explanatory factors, with the final aim to inform public policies on the mitigation of traffic impact on vertebrates. 

     

    TEACHING

    Most of my teaching activity is embedded within the program of the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes.

    - Data analysis for ecologist : a three-weeks course dedicated to biodiversity stakeholders, framed on the practical use of statistical methods and the R software in ecological monitoring. 

    - Methods for ecological monitoring : a two-weeks course with Aurélien Besnard, mainly dedicated to master students and biodiversity stakeholders, to improve their skills and critical thinking in advanced numerical methods for ecology, including species distribution modeling, population dynamics, sampling design and analysis of diversity indices.

    - Environmental changes and ecological science :I contribute to several courses on global changes and environmental monitoring. My teaching is focused on the interactions between science and society through several lenses including epistemology and governance / spatial planning.

    Intéressée par les dynamiques de populations d’arthropodes en agroécosystèmes, j’étudie (1) les effets de l’interférence entre activités agricoles et deux grandes forces évolutives sur les arthropodes - la migration et la sélection naturelle –, (2) les interactions biotiques impliquant des arthropodes bioagresseurs et auxiliaires potentiels. Je dirige ces travaux suivant une approche transdisciplinaire à l'interface entre recherche fondamentale et recherche opérationnelle.

     

    I am interested in the dynamics of arthropod populations in agroecosystems and am studying (1) the effects of interference between farming activities and two major evolutionary forces on arthropods - migration and natural selection - and (2) biotic interactions involving arthropod pests and potential beneficials. I lead this work following a transdisciplinary approach at the interface between fundamental and operational research.
