Persistence of soil organic carbon caused by functional complexity

Soil carbon persistence can be understood through the lens of decomposers as a result of functional complexity derived from the interplay between spatial and temporal variation of molecular diversity and composition. For example, co-location alone can determine whether a molecule is decomposed, with rapid changes in moisture leading to transport of organic matter and constraining the fitness of the microbial community, while greater molecular diversity may increase the metabolic demand of, and thus potentially limit, decomposition.

Environmental and ecological risks in southern countries

The interdisciplinary program “Environmental and Ecological Risks in the South” builds directly upon the existing, long-term research partnership that we have with our colleagues from developing and emerging countries. Indeed, one of the critical issues in research today is how to reconcile economic development with the preservation of the ecological integrity of the environment.To meet […]

Ecological Functioning of Temperate and tropical Soils “FEST” Team

Team publications Team members The main objective of the FEST team is to better understand the interactions between biological actors and the abiotic properties of soils, and the impact of these interactions on the resulting ecosystem services. In particular, we study the influence of soil engineers (especially earthworms, termites and microbial activity) and their “productions” […]

Molecular Ecophysiology of Stressed plant “EcophyS” Team

Team publications Team members Google traduction de la version française The Molecular Ecophysiology of the plant under stress (EcoPhyS) team is studying the responses of plants to environmental constraints by developing an integrative approach to the study of the response to environmental constraints, of plants whole (gas exchange, biomass production, yield) down to the cellular […]

Integrative Ecology : from Mechanisms to Ecosystem services “EMS” Team

Team publications Team members Pas de traduction pour cette page. Nous cherchons à comprendre et analyser expérimentalement ou par des observations, puis à représenter par des modèles couplés, les grands cycles de la matière (nutriments minéraux, carbone) en prenant en compte à la fois des processus classiquement étudiés en écologie des écosystèmes (ex : nitrification ou […]

Ecology and Evolution of Interaction Networks “EERI” Team

Team publications Team members In the context of current large pressures exerted by human populations on natural communities, ecological sciences often cannot provide adequate predictions or management decisions. One reason is the intrinsic complexity of ecosystems. The EERI team tries to handle a part of this complexity by focusing on the structure, functioning and evolution […]

Microbial Communities in Continental ecosystems “CoMIC” Team

Team publications Team members We study the microbial communities of terrestrial and aquatic continental ecosystems in an interdisciplinary framework that blends microbiology and molecular biology, ecology, health and social sciences. Specifically, our research looks at (i) the diversity, functioning and roles of microbial communities within continental ecosystems, and (ii) the vulnerability of these communities to […]
