Ecological trajectories and society

The Trajectoires Ecologiques et Société (TESS) team develops interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and approaches to identify and respond to new societal challenges posed by possible trajectories of human/non-human coexistence and co-evolution.

We focus on the importance of inclusive governance of territories, socio-ecological systems and landscapes as a framework for adaptation to global change.

Our research encompasses various aspects of ecological and environmental studies, with an emphasis on the nexus of biological and cultural diversity.

The team examines the place of knowledge, including local ecological knowledge, different types of knowledge, and representations of this knowledge in support of stakeholders.

We explore issues such as ecological restoration in temperate, boreal and tropical regions, including the impact of human interventions on plant populations.

We are broadly aligned with the objectives of CNRS interdisciplinary commissions, such as CID 52, and with the science-society orientations of Université Paris-Saclay and AgroParisTech.
