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 […]

Fluxes and forcing in the Critical Zone “F2ZC” Team

Team publications Team members Google traduction du contenu Français The skills gathered in this team relate to the analysis of spatial and temporal variability, as well as the physical properties of tropical soils, by approaches of soil science, geophysics and remote sensing: evaluation on long-term observatories of the impacts of land uses, particularly agricultural, on […]

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” […]

Social Species in their Environments : Adaptation and Evolution “ESEAE” Team

Team publications Team members The aim of the ESEAE team is to understand how social life influences the mechanisms of evolution and adaptation of social species, their biodiversity, and their interactions with other species.  Environmental changes are a central theme. Our biological models are mainly termites and ants. We use an integrative approach that focuses on morphology, physiology, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Biogeography and Diversity of Interactions in Soil “BioDIS” Team

Team publications Team members The objectives of BIOgeography and Diversity of Interactions in Soil (BioDis) team is to analyse these interactions in their environmental context in order to better understand the functioning and evolution of soils. The strategy that we have adopted is to study biotic interactions, whilst accounting for the abiotic constraints that regulate or […]
