Laboratoire Evolution et Diversité Biologique - Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France
I am a biologist with a primary interest in ecology and evolution. My research spans a diversity of biological systems and approaches, conceptually unified by a biogeographic perspective. I investigate the ecological and evolutionary forces responsible for the current patterns of global biodiversity.

Distinguishing between convergence and parallelism is central to comparative biology: a reply to Williams and Ebach.
The historical causes and regional determinants of the outstanding Amazonian diversity remain speculative, and the ability of tropical biomes to withstand major environmental changes, poorly known. Predicting how biodiversity will respond to these environmental changes is a major challenge facing ecologists, and a macroevolutionary perspective help understand how environmental changes have affected biodiversity in the past.
Within the PHYLOGUIANAS project (ANR-10-LABX-25-CEBA; 2013-2015), we propose to build on phylogenomics techniques and regional paleoclimatic modeling to bridge a gap in the knowledge of the macroevolutionary patterns for selected lineages in the Guiana Shield. This project will primarily focus on the Guiana Shield, a Precambrian craton within the South American plate which has remained emerged and located around the tropics for the past 200 Myr. We will assemble and compile data for three groups of organisms: invertebrates, frogs, and flowering plants. Fully resolved phylogenetic trees will be constructed using state of the art techniques in phylogenomics. The past 100 Ma of climatic changes in South America will be modelled using regional models and reconstructed topography.
How local communities are structured from regional species pools persists as a fundamental question in ecology, which is all the more compelling in hyper-diverse systems of tropical regions. Nevertheless, studies of community assembly in the tropics have generally been limited to trees, with less than 10% of published papers on tropical community assembly focusing on other species groups. A comparative analysis of assembly rules among different species groups in the tropics represents an original and unprecedented objective that would shed light on the evolution and maintenance of diversity in these hyper-diverse systems. Yet to date, such a study has simply not been possible due to a lack of data and coordination in particular sites.
Within the DIADEMA project (ANR-10-LABX-25-CEBA; 2013-2015), we propose to study the contrasting processes governing community assembly in eight species groups across the tropical region of French Guiana. We will test the hypothesis that the contribution of different processes to local community assembly differs among species groups with different life history strategies. Within the NEBEDIV / TREBEDIV project (ANR / AIRD; 2013-2017), we will test hypotheses related to the coordinated assembly of multiple species groups. In particular, host specificity and dispersal limitation of natural enemies can result in specific predictions about the structure of natural enemy communities and the coupling of plant and natural enemy community structure.
Global changes such as climate and land-use changes affect host-pathogen interactions, through the modification of the epidemiological pathways leading to new and emergence of infectious diseases. As a consequence of these changes, the emergence (or re-emergence) of infectious diseases constitute a serious threat to health. Most of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic/vector-borne diseases and changes affecting biodiversity and ecosystems may unexpectedly increase the risk of zoonotic/vector disease transmission.
Within the BIOHOPSYS project (ANR-10-LABX-25-CEBA; 2013-2015), we seek (1) to analyze five infectious diseases and their hosts in relation to biodiversity modification and environmental change, (2) to model their transmission dynamics according to habitat and ecosystem alteration, climate change and biodiversity loss, and (3) to propose scenarios of disease transmission accordingly. Analyses of local situations and their evolution will help to inform policy- makers and public health authorities on conditions at higher risks for increasing disease transmission and spread in humans.
