Ecological Processes and human Impact

The PEPA team’s research focuses on the impact of human activities on biodiversity, especially on populations and communities. We are interested in the effects of climate change, environmental pollution, invasive species and other human-caused disturbances on population dynamics, ecosystem functioning, whether natural or man-made, and the services they provide.

These studies may involve chemistry, genetics, evolutionary biology, functional ecology, population monitoring, economics, modelling or participatory science. Thus, we use different complementary approaches: field observations, experimentation at different scales, data analysis, risk-exposure measures, meta-analysis of literature results, simulation modelling and mathematical analyses.
