Adeline Bulot's Personal Page


Scientist at AGROCAMPUS OUEST BAGAP research unit

Phone: +33 2 41 22 54 84 •

Address: AGROCAMPUS OUEST, 2 rue André Le Nôtre, 49045 Angers Cedex 01, France

Expertise: Ecology, Botany

Keywords: Community ecology, Plant ecology, Restoration ecology, Ecological engineering



My research focuses on the ecology of communities via experiments in ecological restoration and ecological engineering. Firstly, I have been interested in plant-soil and plant-insects interactions to identify the ecological processes that lead to the assemblage of a plant community. Currently, I focus my research on questions related to the structure and functioning of ecosystems in strongly anthropized environments to help guide planning landscaping and improve management and practices, and thus to promote the ordinary and patrimonial biodiversity.

Teaching Experience

In the department of ecology at AGROCAMPUS OUEST, I teach general and plant ecology at bachelor level; and ecological management, restoration ecology, and ecological engineering at master level. I also teach in the master’s degree “Ecology and Eco-engineering of Wetlands” at the University of Angers.

Consulting Experience

I can be solicited as a scientific expert to help design projects of ecological restoration or landscaping, and for their ecological monitoring.
