Current Research Topics

Currently, I am mostly working on ecological networks across European landscapes, managing projects ranging from a renewal of the characterization of habitat quality for plants and animals to novel maps to characterize landscape permeability to movement using a range of remotely sensed images (radar, Lidar, etc.). The species studied can be of conservation interest or providing services to crop production. The last step is to analyze how advances in science can be incorporated in the design of public policies. This permits to develop ideas on how to tackle wicked problems.

Parallel projects involving stakeholders and land managers permit to develop methods for implementing policies. Those methods are designed with the land managers and tested in real cases.

A novel perspective is to adapt the methods of landscape ecology developed for temperate zones to tropical landscapes.

Current Projects

  • WOODNET: Connectivity patterns and processes along a gradient of European landscapes with woody vegetation and spatial heterogeneity
  • CHEMINS: The Green and Blue Infrastructures: Which arguments, levers and methods to provide stakeholders to implement them in rural landscape at the infre-regional scale?
  • LÉGUER BOCAGE: Knowlefge on the biodiversity of hedgerow network landscape and its use for planning and management in the Léguer watershed
  • DyAREM:  Agricultural Dynamics and Water Resources in Mato Grosso
  • CHAROLAIS BOCAGE: Analysis of the bocage landscape of the Charolais region within the application of this region as a world cultural landscape to UNESCO
