    My profile lies at the interface between scientific research and management in the field of ecology. My subjects of study mainly concern ecology of large predators (wolf, jaguar, lynx) but also of fauna linked to agriculture landscapes (Eurasian hamster, bee). The tools I use are derived from biostatistics and mainly from modelling: point process methods, individual-based modelling, spatial capture-recapture, occupancy, kernel density estimation.

    Thématique de recherche

     

    alt

     

    Je développe un travail d’écologie évolutive qui vise à analyser les traits d'histoire de vie chez les plantes (systèmes de reproduction, traits floraux, dispersion). L’accent est mis l'accent sur l'importance de la dynamique écologique (dynamique des métapopulations, démographie) comme un processus de sélection dans l'évolution contemporaine. Mon approche combine (1) Analyse des patrons d’adaptation et méthodes d’inférence des traits d’histoires de vie dans les métapopulations de plantes, en milieu naturel (2) élaboration de modèles formels en écologie évolutive (3) expérimentations et tests d’hypothèses en conditions contrôlées.

    I use my modeling and data analysis skills to study the spatiotemporal dynamics of wolf and lynx populations in France to improve their conservation and management. Examples of projects on these species are: reduction of lynx-vehicles collisions, landscape management impacts, modeling of wolf demography, occupancy analysis, population and individual monitoring (e.g., camera traps, genetic analyses), impact of wolf legal killings on the population, prey-predator interactions. I also have strong skills in individual-based modeling.

    Current Research

    I work to reveal how animals perceive and adjust to their environment, and why this matters for populations and ecosystems. My model of choice: large herbivores. Because you can (relatively) easily monitor their behaviour in natura, and they have important ecosystem effects. Some have high societal and economical values, so my research sometimes matter beyond basic science. We (as humans) are making the world's climate different. How this affects organisms in the hottest applied ecological question. I do my share to bring an answer to it

    PHD project:What are the drivers of European otter recolonization in France? Making the best of non-invasive sampling with statistical ecology.

     

    Supervisors: Olivier Gimenez (CEFE-CNRS), Sébastien Devillard (LBBE)

     

     


    Project outline

    The aim of my PhD is to study the recolonization of the European otter (Lutra lutra), which has been taking place in France for over a decade. My research mostly focuses on the spatial dimension of recolonization with three main objectives.

    First, I am building distribution models that integrate both protocol-based data from a national monitoring plan and opportunistic data to map the species’ range expansion. I will then investigate how this expansion is favoured or hindered by habitat characteristics and landscape connectivity.

    In the same time, I am studying how to include alternative sampling strategies like environment DNA in the monitoring plan for this species, using a case study in several catchments near Montpellier.

    Finally, using sequencing data from scats collected in several areas, I am using capture-recapture methods to compare the socio-spatial organization of otters – home range size, sex-ratio, individual turnover – in their core range and in the colonisation front.

    Ma thèse a pour objectif d’étudier l’efficacité des mesures compensatoires d’un grand projet d’infrastructure, la LGV « Contournement Nîmes-Montpellier » (CNM). Les mesures sont majoritairement des mesures agro-écologiques à destination des outardes canepetières, œdicnèmes criards, lézards ocellés, orthoptères, dianes… L’étude permet d’appréhender les facteurs de succès ou d’échecs d’un projet compensatoire dans son ensemble et également d’apporter un retour sur des protocoles d’évaluation des mesures. Cette thèse permet aussi d’améliorer les connaissances sur l’écologie d’espèces méditerranéennes et mener à des préconisations de mesures de conservation.

    About me

    Français

    Je travaille à l’interface entre recherche fondamentale et conservation de la biodiversité. Ma principale motivation est de comprendre et d’atténuer l’impact des activités humaines sur la biodiversité. Mon domaine de prédilection étant l’écologie des populations, je m’intéresse surtout aux impacts à l’échelle des populations animales, mais pas uniquement. Les méthodes que j’utilise s’appuient beaucoup sur la modélisation (projections démographiques, notamment) et sur l’analyse statistique de données de suvis de la faune (comptages, capture-recapture, occupancy). Je travaille de près avec de nombreux acteurs de la biodiversité, sur des projets touchant à de nombreux taxons de vertébrés : oiseaux marins, oiseaux terrestres, mammifères terrestres, phoques, amphibiens.

    Actuellement, mes travaux de recherche se concentrent sur l’étude des impacts de la transition énergétique, notamment du développement de l’éolien, sur les oiseaux. Dans le cadre du projet MAPE, j’ai notamment développé une application Shiny (EolPop) qui permet de quantifier l’impact démographiques des collisions d’oiseaux avec les éoliennes. J’ai ensuite développé l’application EolPower, qui permet de dimensionner les suivis réalisés sur les parcs éoliens pour estimer la mortalité aviaire. Depuis 2022, je travaille sur le projet BIRD DYNAMIC qui a pour objectif d’estimer l’impact cumulé des parcs éoliens en mer sur les populations d’oiseaux marins de la façade Atlantique française.

    English

    My work is at the crossroad between fundamental research and conservation. My biggest motivation is to understand and mitigate the impact of human activities on biodiversity. My main area of interest is population ecology. Therefore, my research mostly focusses on impacts at the population scale, but not exclusively. The methods I use rely heavily on modeling (demographic projections, in particular) and statistical analysis of wildlife monitoring data (counts, capture-recapture, occupancy). I work closely with many biodiversity stakeholders, on projects involving a wide range of vertebrate taxa: seabirds, land birds, terrestrial mammals, seals and amphibians.

    Currently, my research is focused on studying the impact of the energy transition, particularly the development of wind power, on birds. As part of the MAPE project, I developed a Shiny application (EolPop) to quantify the demographic impact of bird collisions with wind turbines. I then developed the EolPower application, which helps defining the study design of carcass search surveys that are carried out on wind farms to estimate avian mortality. Since 2022, I have been working on the BIRD DYNAMIC project, which aims to estimate the cumulative impact of offshore wind farms on seabird populations along the French Atlantic coast.

    @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.
