Le vendredi 9 novembre - 11h30 Campus Triolet Univ Montpellier: amphi 23.01 - Bât. 23

 (Seminar in English)

 

Anthropogenic impacts on the world’s ecosystems have led to a widespread and accelerating loss of bio-diversity. No area of the planet can be considered pristine any longer, yet not all areas or species are af-fected equally by human impacts. Some species have characteristics, traits, that make them more (or less) vulnerable to threats, and threats can be localized and varying in intensity. In this talk I will discuss how we can use data describing species morphological, behavioural, and ecological traits to better understand and predict vulnerability to extinction and to individual anthropogenic threats. I will present different trait-based approaches, discuss the issue of data limitation and end proposing some possible future direc-tions in macroecological conservation.
