Contributions of multi-temporal airborne LiDAR data to mapping carbon stocks and fluxes in tropical forests

HUERTAS Garcia Claudia 

Current climate change affects tropical forests functioning in many ways and might jeopardize their role as a global carbon sink. Accurately documenting forest carbon fluxes at a meaningful scale is therefore a pressing challenge. Airborne LIDAR, which can provide a fine-grained description of canopy structure and dynamics has great potential in th... [Read more ...]

Aphid-plant interactions and the implication of olfactory cues

ANTON Sylvia 

Aphids are small insects with a limited mobility range, and therefore the importance of olfactory cues affecting aphid behaviour is under debate. There are nevertheless indications that olfactory cues originating from plants can be repulsive or attractive for certain aphids and these effects can vary between winged and wingless morphs. These result... [Read more ...]

Étude des leurres visuels et olfactifs des plantes carnivores du genre Sarracenia et de leurs rôles dans la capture du frelon asiatique, Vespa velutina, en vue de l’élaboration d'un piège biomimétique

Corentin DUPONT 

Le frelon asiatique, Vespa velutina, une espèce envahissante en Europe, menace les abeilles domestiques, déjà en déclin, et leurs services de pollinisation, et présente un coût pour l’environnement et l’économie. Les campagnes d’éradication, peu efficaces et dommageables pour la biodiversité, incitent à développer des pièges plus ... [Read more ...]

ecophylo: Simulating and assessing eco-evolutionary dynamics under past environmental changes in Python

BARTHELEMY Elizabeth 

While ecology addresses the coexistence and dynamics of species depending on their adaptations to their environment at present, evolution addresses the appearance-disappearance of species and the changes in their characters over a longer term and a large spatial scale. A major challenge is to bridge the gap between ecological and evolutionary model... [Read more ...]
