    Résumé :
    Diplômé d’un doctorat en écologie, le cherche à mieux comprendre les effets qu’induisent les modifications de l’environnement à différentes échelles – du paysage à la parcelle - sur les communautés, les populations et les traits des invertébrés du sol. J’analyse les effets des changements d’occupation du sol, comme l’urbanisation, sur les communautés et les interactions. Je m’intéresse fortement aux problématiques d’agroécologie, dans les paysages ruraux mais aussi urbains.J’ai des compétences fortes dans l’intégration de la dynamique spatiale des processus, dans la détermination d’invertébrés. je fais partie d’un collectif « art-science » qui vise à sensibiliser le public à la protection des sols.

    My research focuses on the developmental cycle and the ecological niche of extra-tropical forest trees, both of which are currently challenged by climate change. Identifying the key traits that allow a particular species adapting to its environment and the identifying the constraints on their genetic evolution are the key motivating forces behind my research, which lies at the interface between functional ecology and evolutionary ecology.

    I have initiated pioneering work on process-based species distribution models for plants, which I use to study the evolvability of the ecological niche of tree species. My work is deeply concerned by climate change and the models I develop are also used to provide accurate forecast of trees’ distribution for the upcoming centuries.

    I am using a combination of modelling (PMP, PHENOFIT), experimental work in both field and controlled conditions, as well as long term monitoring of natural populations to feed my research. I have also founded a national research group on phenology whose main achievements are an open database, a national observatory and the Citizen Science program Observatoire Des Saisons.

    Ma définition préférée de l’écologie est celle donnée par l’écologue américain renommé, G. Evelyn Hutchinson, au début de son cours séminaire en écologie à l’Université de Yale : « Aux fins de ce cours, nous pouvons considérer l'écologie comme l'étude de l'univers. » Formé d’abord à l’étude des interactions entre plantes et animaux dans les écosystèmes tropicaux, j’applique maintenant l’écologie évolutive à des systèmes couplés humains/nature. J’étudie comment l’évolution des plantes sous la domestication est façonnée par les pratiques agricoles en interaction avec la sélection naturelle, utilisant le manioc et d’autres plantes propagées par voie clonale comme systèmes modèles. J’étudie aussi les interactions entre humains et écosystèmes, particulièrement dans les savanes tropicales saisonnièrement inondées, comparant des systèmes de subsistance en Afrique (systèmes actuels) et en Amérique du Sud (vestiges de systèmes précolombiens) pour étudier des convergences dans la construction culturelle de la niche. Ces études comparatives enrichissent réciproquement l’archéologie et l’ethnoécologie.

    Mes intérêts variés et ma volonté de traverser les frontières disciplinaires pour trouver des réponses à des questions aux multiples facettes m'ont amené à collaborer avec des spécialistes dans de nombreux domaines différents, notamment la phytochimie, la génétique, la géographie, l'agronomie, les sciences du sol, l'ethnobiologie, l'archéologie et l’anthropologie. J'ai publié dans des revues de premier plan dans tous ces domaines. Mon travail a été reconnu par plusieurs prix, dont le Grand Prix Recherche (la plus haute distinction décernée par la Société Française d'Ecologie et d'Evolution), la reconnaissance en tant qu'Ethnobotaniste Distingué par le Royal Botanic Garden (Kew, Royaume-Uni) et un prix Cozzarelli décerné par l’Académie National des Sciences des États-Unis pour un article exceptionnel publié dans la revue PNAS.

    En plus de leur diversité thématique, mes recherches ont également privilégié la diversité géographique à la spécialisation régionale. J'ai mené des recherches dans 15 pays différents en Afrique tropicale, en Asie et en Amérique du Sud et j'ai donné des cours sur le terrain dans six pays supplémentaires. J'utilise cette expérience dans les études comparatives sur le terrain et les synthèses qui ont été parmi mes contributions de recherche les plus importantes.

    My favorite definition of ecology is that given by the distinguished American ecologist G. Evelyn Hutchinson at the beginning of his ecology seminar course at Yale : « For the purposes of this course, we may consider ecology to be the study of the universe. » Trained in the study of plant/animal interactions in tropical ecosystems, I now apply an evolutionary-ecological approach to coupled human and natural systems. I study how plant evolution under domestication is shaped by human agricultural practices and natural selection, using manioc and other clonally propagated crops as model systems. I also study interactions between humans and ecosystems, particularly in seasonal tropical wetlands, comparing subsistence systems in Africa (present-day) and South America (pre-Columbian vestiges) to study convergent patterns in cultural niche construction. These comparative studies cross-fertilize both archaeology and ethnoecology.

    My broad-ranging interests, and a willingness to cross disciplinary boundaries to seek answers to many-faceted questions, have led me to collaborate with specialists in many different fields, including phytochemistry, genetics, geography, agronomy, soil science, ethnobiology, archaeology and anthropology. I have published in top-tier journals in all these fields. My work has been recognized by several awards, including the Grand Prix Recherche (the highest honor conferred by the French Society for Ecology and Evolution), recognition as Distinguished Ethnobotanist by the Royal Botanic Garden (Kew, UK) and a Cozzarelli Prize awarded by the US National Academy of Sciences for an outstanding paper published in the journal PNAS.

    In addition to its thematic diversity, my research has also favored geographic diversity over regional specialization. I have conducted research in 15 different countries in tropical Africa, Asia and South America and have taught field courses in six additional countries. I use this experience in the comparative field studies and syntheses that have been among my most important research contributions.

    TEXTE DETAILLE SUR MES RECHERCHES

    Dans un nouveau projet, je reviens à des questions de recherche qui m'ont intriguée durant mon travail de doctorat et qui n'ont toujours pas trouvé de réponses : comment les défenses chimiques contre les herbivores et les pathogènes sont-elles réparties dans les graines des plantes tropicales, et comment les défenses changent-elles au cours de la transition de la graine à la plantule ? Une graine n'est pas une « partie d’une plante » mais une plante embryonnaire dont les différentes parties ont des exigences de défense différentes et des contraintes différentes dans le déploiement des défenses. Cependant, la distribution des défenses dans différentes parties des graines a rarement été étudiée. De plus, la théorie suggère que les défenses mobiles devraient jouer des rôles importants dans la défense des graines, mais celles-ci ont été négligées dans les études comparatives multi-espèces, par rapport aux défenses immobiles telles que les tanins et les défenses mécaniques (fibres, etc.), car leur diversité entre les espèces fait que ces études comparatives sont difficiles. Enfin, la façon dont les défenses chimiques changent au cours de l'ontogenèse végétale est une frontière active dans la recherche sur l'écologie évolutive de la défense des plantes, mais une transition ontogénétique cruciale, celle de la graine à la plantule, a été peu étudiée. Grâce à une bourse Talent de l'Académie des sciences de la Chine, j'étudierai ces questions en collaboration avec un chimiste (Gregory Genta-Jouve, Univ. Paris Descartes) et avec des collègues du Jardin botanique tropical de Xishuangbanna (Yunnan, Chine), où les installations (serre et laboratoire) permettront d'étudier un grand nombre d'espèces.

    Auparavant, j'ai étudié les interactions interspécifiques dans les écosystèmes tropicaux, à la fois antagonistes (défenses chimiques des plantes, interactions des plantes avec les herbivores mammifères et insectes, théorie de la défense optimale, écologie chimique) et mutualistes (la pollinisation et la dispersion et des graines par les animaux, mutualismes symbiotiques plantes / fourmis), utilisant mes systèmes d'étude pour étudier un large éventail de questions générales en écologie et évolution. Le travail de mon équipe sur les mutualismes symbiotiques entre plantes et fourmis a développé une perspective comparative sur l'écologie évolutive de ces mutualismes, et nos revues à ce sujet (Davidson & McKey, 1993, Journal of Hymenoptera Research; Heil & McKey 2003 ; Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics; Blatrix et al. 2014, New Phytologist) sont les articles de synthèse les plus cités dans le domaine. Bien qu'une grande partie de mon travail actuel se concentre sur les interactions entre les humains et les environnements qu'ils occupent, je continue d'être fermement ancré dans l'écologie évolutive fondamentale de pointe, une source importante de nouvelles idées à appliquer pour étudier les interactions entre les humains, d'autres organismes et les environnements qu'ils partagent.

    Mon travail sur la domestication des plantes, axé sur les plantes domestiquées à propagation clonale, a inclus l'écologie, la biologie évolutive (génétique, phylogéographie, phylogénie), l'anthropologie et l'agronomie. Le travail de mon équipe sur l'écologie évolutive de la domestication du manioc a transformé notre vision de l'évolution sous domestication dans les cultures à propagation clonale, montrant comment les pratiques agricoles des agriculteurs qui ont domestiqué ces cultures conduisent à des systèmes reproducteurs mixtes clonaux / sexués dont la dynamique est beaucoup plus complexe qu’a été pensé auparavant (McKey et al. 2010, New Phytologist).

    Dans nos travaux sur l'écologie culturelle des plaines inondables des savanes tropicales, dans le passé et le présent, je collabore avec des archéologues, des archéobotanistes, des géographes, des pédologues, des écologues et des spécialistes de la télédétection. Ces études ont montré comment les humains et les animaux ingénieurs du sol co-construisent des paysages (McKey et al. 2010, PNAS) et comment les comparaisons intercontinentales révèlent à la fois la convergence et la singularité dans la construction de niches culturelles (McKey et al.2016, PNAS ; Blatrix et al. 2018 , Scientific Reports). Ces travaux jettent un nouvel éclairage sur l'écologie historique de l'Amazonie, sur l'agriculture actuelle des zones humides en Afrique et sur l'écologie dans les environnements des plaines inondables tropicales. Nous étudions actuellement la diversité des systèmes agricoles des prairies dans les régions tropicales actuelles de l'Ancien Monde pour comprendre comment l'agriculture sur champs surélevés –et d'autres types possibles d'agriculture—dans les savanes néotropicales peut avoir fonctionné à l’époque précolombienne.

     

    DETAILED TEXT ON MY RESEARCH

    In a new project, I am returning to research questions that intrigued me during my PhD work and that still have not found answers: How are chemical defenses against herbivores and pathogens distributed in the seeds of tropical plants, and how do defenses change in the transition from seed to seedling? A seed is not a ‘plant part’ but an embryonic plant whose different parts have different defense requirements and different constraints in deploying defences. However, distribution of defences in different parts of seeds has rarely been studied. Furthermore, theory suggests that mobile defenses should play important roles in seed defense, but these have been neglected in multi-species comparative studies, compared to immobile defences such as tannins and mechanical defences (fiber,..), because their diversity among species makes such comparative studies difficult. Finally, how chemical defenses change over plant ontogeny is an active frontier in research on the evolutionary ecology of plant defense, but a crucial ontogenetic transition, that from seed to seedling, has been little studied. With a Talent grant from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, I will study these questions in collaboration with a chemist (Gregory Genta-Jouve, Univ. Paris Descartes) and with colleagues at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (Yunnan, China), where greenhouse and laboratory facilities will allow study of a large number of species.

    Previously, I have studied interspecies interactions in tropical ecosystems, both antagonistic (plant chemical defenses, interactions of plants with mammalian and insect herbivores, optimal defense theory, chemical ecology) and mutualistic (seed dispersal and pollination by animals, symbiotic ant/plant mutualisms), using my study systems to investigate a wide range of general questions in ecology and evolution. The work of my team on symbiotic ant-plant mutualisms has developed a comparative perspective on the evolutionary ecology of these mutualisms, and our reviews of this subject (Davidson & McKey, 1993, Journal of Hymenoptera Research; Heil & McKey 2003, Annual Revew of Ecology, Evolution and Systematic ; Blatrix et al. 2014, New Phytologist) are the most widely cited review articles in the field. Although much of my current work is focused on interactions between humans and the environments they occupy, I continue to be firmly grounded in state-of-the-art fundamental evolutionary ecology, an important source of new insights to apply in studying the interactions among humans, other organisms and the environments they share.

    My work on plant domestication, focusing on clonally propagated domesticated plants, has included ecology, evolutionary biology (genetics, phylogeography, phylogeny), anthropology and agronomy. My team’s work on the evolutionary ecology of domestication of manioc has transformed our views of evolution under domestication in clonally propagated crops, showing how agricultural practices of the farmers who domesticated these crops leads to mixed clonal/sexual reproductive systems whose dynamics are much more complex than was previously thought (McKey et al. 2010, New Phytologist).

    In our work on the cultural ecology of tropical savanna floodplains, past and present, I collaborate with archaeologists, archaeobotanists, geographers, soil scientists, ecologists and specialists in remote sensing. These studies have shown how humans and soil engineer animals co-construct landscapes (McKey et al. 2010, PNAS) and how intercontinental comparisons reveal both convergence and singularity in cultural niche construction (McKey et al. 2016, PNAS ; Blatrix et al. 2018, Scientific Reports). This work is shedding new light on the historical ecology of Amazonia, on present-day wetland agriculture in Africa, and on ecology in floodplain savanna environments throughout the tropics. We are currently studying the diversity of grassland-farming systems in the present-day Old-World tropics to understand how raised-field agriculture in Neotropical floodplain savannas—and possible other kinds of agriculture in upland savannas of South America—may have functioned in pre-Columbian times.

    Thèmes de recherche
     

    Je m'intéresse au fonctionnement et à la dynamique des écosystèmes forestiers, en cherchant à comprendre en particulier comment les interactions biotiques intra et interspécifiques influencent leur réponse à la sécheresse.

    Dans mon postodoctorat au sein de FORECAST, je travaille sur une expérimentation croisée de réduction des précipitations et d’éclaircie sur un taillis de chêne vert Méditerranéen suivie depuis 15 ans (http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/). J’analyse comment la compétition intraspécifique influence la productivité et l’utilisation d’eau du peuplement, la croissance et la mortalité des arbres ainsi que leur fonctionnement écophysiologique en réponse à la sécheresse.

    Mes travaux précédents ont porté sur la phase de régénération en forêt méditerranéenne. J’ai étudié comment les interactions avec la végétation environnante – arbres adultes, strate arbustive ou herbacée – influencent le succès d’installation de plantules à travers des mécanismes de compétition pour les ressources, de facilitation ou d’allélopathie.

    Ma recherche a des applications en termes de gestion pour l'adaptation des forêts au changement climatique, qui repose en grande partie sur le contrôle des interactions intra ou interspécifiques.

     

    Research interest

    In am interested in understanding how biotic interactions influence forest functioning and dynamics, in particular in response to drought.

    My current postdoctoral work relies on a long-term rainfall exclusion experiment combined with thinning on a Mediterranean holm oak stand (http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/). This experiment allow me to investigate how increased drought and intraspecific competition affect stand-level productivity, water use and their response to annual drought. I also study how these factors modify tree-level growth and mortality risk, trying to disentangle the influence of tree size and neighbour competition. Finally, I seek to understand the underlying ecophysiological mechanisms.

    My previous work focused on the seedling establishment phase in Mediterranean forests. I investigated how interactions with neighbouring overstory and understory species may affect seedling establishment success through resource competition, facilitation or allelopathic processes.

    My research has an important applied component as forest management mainly relies on controlling intra or interspecific interactions through thinning, vegetation control or species selection.

    Mes travaux portent sur la compréhension de la régulation du fonctionnement des écosystèmes terrestres en terme de flux de matière (eau, carbone, nutriments…). Initialement centrées sur les écosystèmes méditerranéens, mes activités ont été élargies à d’autres écosystèmes subissant de très fortes contraintes (les hauts plateaux andins). 

    My research focuses on the understanding of terrestrial ecosystems functioning in terms of fluxes (water, carbon, nutrients...). Initially centered on Mediterranean ecosystems, my research activities have been extended to the Andean highlands).

    Objectif (français) : 

    Ma thèse fait partie du projet collaboratif « SoilForEUROPE » avec la participation de plusieurs partenaires en France, en Allemagne, en Belgique, en Suède et en Pays-Bas. SoilForEUROPE vise à comprendre la relation entre la diversité des espèces d’arbres et la diversité des organismes du sol, et leurs conséquences pour le fonctionnement des écosystèmes forestiers sous changement climatique à l’échelle Européenne.IMG 20170819 WA0007

    L’objectif de ma thèse est de comprendre les mécanismes sous-jacents de la résistance et la résilience du fonctionnement microbien (l’activité microbien et les flux de gaz) face à des évènements de sècheresse extrême sous conditions contrôlées (sur le terrain et à l’Ecotron Européen à Montpellier). Je vais également interagir étroitement avec l’ensemble des membres du consortium sur différents aspects liés aux activités microbiennes (la diversité microbienne, la diversité de la faune de sol, le fonctionnement des racines, etc.).   

    Objective (english) :

    My PhD is part of the SoilForEUROPE project including several partners from France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, and the Netherlands. SoilForEUROPE aims to understand the relationships between tree species diversity and soil diversity, and their consequences for ecosystem functioning across major European forest types under climate change.

    The objective of my PhD is to understand the driving mechanisms of ecosystem resistance and resilience of microbial functioning (microbial activity and trace gas fluxes) to extreme drought events under controlled conditions (in the field and at the European Ecotron in Montpellier). I will also closely interact with all members of the consortium on related aspects (microbial diversity, soil fauna diversity, root functioning, etc.).

    Résumé :

    La réussite de la reproduction des arbres forestiers est un élément essentiel de la régénération des peuplements. Pourtant, les peuplements forestiers français subissent actuellement un certain taux d’échec de leur renouvellement, qui interroge sur le devenir de la régénération naturelle. Par ailleurs, la reproduction sexuée étant essentielle pour sélectionner des génotypes mieux adaptés aux nouvelles conditions climatiques, il est nécessaire de mieux comprendre la façon dont fonctionne et évoluera la fertilité des arbres avec le changement climatique.

    Les dynamiques de fructification des arbres forestiers sont souvent caractérisées par des fructifications massives, intermittentes et synchronisées à l’échelle d’une population. Ce patron de fructification, dit de masting, est une stratégie de reproduction répandue parmi de nombreux groupes taxonomiques de plantes en milieu tempéré, mais dont les mécanismes sont encore mal compris.

    Plusieurs travaux ont cherché à corréler le succès de reproduction par masting et les conditions météorologiques chez les arbres forestiers. Chez les chênes, il en ressort qu’aucune variable météorologique ne permet de prédire de façon récurrente les patrons de fructification. Par ailleurs, encore peu d’études cherchent à déterminer quelles contraintes physiologiques pèsent sur chacune des étapes de développement des fruits.

    Problématique de la thèse : Comment expliquer la variabilité interannuelle de la fécondité des arbres, et en particulier du chêne vert ?

    La première partie de ce travail s’intéresse aux déterminants pédoclimatiques et biologiques de la variation de la fécondité du chêne vert. Cette partie est basée sur l’analyse de données de floraison et de fructification collectées sur la station expérimentale de Puéchabon (http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/) depuis 1984, et qui offrent un recul très rare sur l’évolution des dynamiques de fécondité chez les arbres forestiers.

    La seconde partie aborde plus précisément les mécanismes d’allocation de réserves aux fleurs et aux fruits à l’échelle de l’arbre et de la branche. Cette partie est basée sur deux expériences menées au laboratoire et mises en place dans le cadre du doctorat : une expérience de retrait des fruits et une expérience de défoliation. L’impact de ces traitements sur plusieurs traits (succès reproducteur, croissance, photosynthèse, réserves en différentes ressources) a été suivi pour mieux comprendre l’allocation entre différentes fonctions au sein de l’arbre.

    Enfin, la troisième partie consiste à mettre en équation ce qui a été mis en évidence dans les deux parties précédentes pour modéliser l’impact des changements climatiques sur la fécondité des arbres en ajoutant un module au modèle PHENOFIT, développé par Isabelle Chuine. Ce modèle sera calibré sur le chêne vert, mais pourra être utilisé pour d’autres essences.


    PhD Title:

    Environmental determinism of reproduction by masting in trees and impact of climate change:
    the case of the holm oak

    Abstract:

    French forests are mainly renewed through natural regeneration. However, how fertility of forest stands will be affected by climate change is still very poorly understood. It is thus essential that we gain a better understanding of ecophysiological mechanisms of reproduction in order to improve functional models of trees and species distribution models. Both aspects will be necessary to predict the consequences of climate change on temperate forests. This project will identify the environmental determinants of the reproduction of an evergreen mediterranean tree, the holm oak (Quercus ilex). This species reproduces with a masting pattern like other oaks and many trees, and has been monitored in South France for more than 30 years.

    Data analyzed in this project were mainly collected at the Puéchabon long-term monitoring site: http://puechabon.cefe.cnrs.fr/

    Research questions

    How ecological processes and human activities affect biodiversity and ecosystem functioning?

    To address this question, I assemble approaches from community ecology, functional ecology and quantitative ecology. I mainly focus on cultivated ecosystems and their associated plant communities, including both cultivated and wild species (i.e. arable weeds). 

    My researches hinge on three particular thematics:

    1) Plant invasion: Which ecological processes drive plant invasion success? How invaded species affect local plant communities?

    2) Weed community ecology: How stochastic and deterministic ecological processes shape weed community assembly in arable fields? Are weeds ecological outliers?

    3) Biodiversity-ecosystem functioning: How the different facet of plant diversity (eg: species richness, functional diversity, species relative density) affect ecosystem functioning? How the diversity of cultivated species can be manipulated to increase yield stability?

    I study how variation in signal production and perception influences (i) the evolution of signals in multiple sensory modalities (acoustic, visual and chemical domains) and (ii) the adaptation (through phenotypic plasticity and/or genetic variability) to different environments, a topic for which there is nowadays a growing interest in the new field of sensory ecology, notably to understand how species cope with their rapidly changing environment due to anthropogenic activities.

    Mes intérêts portent sur la variation de la biodiversité à différentes échelles (locale, régionale, globale) : comment varie-t-elle en fonction des échelles ? Peut-on comprendre les causes de sa variation ? Je m'intéresse aussi à l'assemblage des communautés : comment se fait-il que l'on trouve telle espèce à tel endroit mais pas telle autre ?  Est-ce lié à l'environnement, à la présence d'autres espèces ?

    My scientific interests revolve around the variation of biodiversity at different scales (local, regional and global): how does diversity vary in function of the scale? Can we understand the causes of its variation? I am also interested in community assembly: why do we find a given species at a given place but not that other species? Is it because of the environment, of other species?
