Je m'intéresse à l'écologie et à l'évolution des interactions inter-spécifiques. Mes études portent plus particulièrement sur l'écologie chimique dans les processus de coévolution et de diversification dans le système Ficus-insectes des figues.

I am interested in the ecology and evolution of inter-specific interactions. My studies are largely focused on the ecological chemistry of coevolutionary processes and diversification in the fig-fig wasp system.

Mon objectif est de comprendre la coévolution dans les interactions mutualistes, en étudiant de façon parallèle plusieurs types de mutualismes. Suivant une approche résolument intégrative, j’applique plusieurs méthodes à l’étude de ces interactions. Des médiateurs chimiques sont souvent à la base des mutualismes, et au sein du groupe Coévolution j’apporte cette composante d’écologie chimique à l’analyse de nos principaux modèles. L’étude de la médiation chimique est souvent restreinte à la description des mécanismes proximaux du fonctionnement des interactions : les échanges de signaux et de ressources. En appliquant les méthodes de l’écologie chimique non seulement à l’étude des mécanismes proximaux des interactions mais aussi à l’analyse de leur dynamique évolutive, je retrace le rôle des médiateurs chimiques dans l’évolution de la spécificité et dans la stabilité des mutualismes face aux conflits évolutifs. En étudiant le cortège de parasites associés aux mutualismes et les relations entre différents mutualismes impliquant les mêmes plantes—par exemple, la pollinisation et le transport de graines, deux mutualismes couplés chez les figuiers—j’étend l’étude des mutualismes, qui sont souvent vus comme interactions entre paires d’espèces, à la prise en compte d’interactions multitrophiques dans des communautés. Je suis particulièrement intéressée par les rôles des mutualismes dans le fonctionnement des écosystèmes, l’histoire évolutive des mutualismes lors des fluctuations climatiques passées, et l’avenir des mutualismes face aux changements écologiques actuels. Ces travaux prennent en compte, l’Homme en tant qu’acteur dans les systèmes d’interactions durables avec une attention particulière à la diversité culturelle des sociétés concernées.

De plus, mes terrains de recherche étant essentiellement tropicaux, je participe activement à des programmes de Biologie de la Conservation.
