Address: École Supérieure d’Agricultures, 55 rue Rabelais, B.P. 30748, 49007 Angers Cedex 01, France

Expertise: Landscape Ecology, Agroecology, Geomatics

Keywords: Biodiversity conservation, Ecological network, Landscape management


I study the effects of landscape management practices on biodiversity in various contexts: development or maintenance of semi-natural habitats in cultivated areas, implementation of ecological network conservation policy “green and blue ecological infrastructure”. I work primarily within the framework of interdisciplinary research projects.

I teach landscape ecology, agroecology and geomatics for various courses in agriculture, environment or landscaping. As an expert, I contribute to the debate on landscape management in favour of biodiversity within regional or local authorities.
