Research interests

Over the past fifteen years, I worked in the field of evolutionary genetics in forest trees within the UMR 8079 ESE. After a period in which I was attached to describe the genetic structure and gene flow in forest populations, I have also worked on reproductive systems and their evolution. These last years, my concerns have been linked to processes of hybridization in a particular species complex: the ashes, Fraxinus genus mixed with phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies. I no longer work on these subjects.

My research now are more in line with my teaching in relation to the urban biodiversity at the scale of eco-districts (PhD Thesis of A. HENRY funded by the VINCI Group, Chair School Les Mines, Les Ponts and AgroParisTech, defence 18/12/2012) with a reflection of implementing ecological engineering in urban areas (partnership with both Veolia and GDF-Suez/CIRSEE).

I was associated to a project AMtools http://www.centre-cired.fr/spip.php…
(Key words : Climate Change, Forest, Assisted Migration, Public policies, regulatory framework) (Roxane SANSILVESTRI PhD 2012-2015 in partnership with Juan Fernàndez-Manjarrès)

I was associated to urban agriculture project (PhD thesis Baptiste GRARD, 2014-2017). Based on an experiment on the rooftop of AgroParisTech in 2012-2013, the goal of this thesis is to determine the role of the crop biodiversity linked to the substrate of culture. A system of cultivated boxes will be used to compare some urban organic substrate, inseminated or not with earthworm, with crop association and succession built in a way to evaluate the system in terms of production, biodiversity (cultivated and spontaneous) and substrate evolution. The goal here is to create a new kind of multi-functional rooftop in terms of ecosystem services: provision, regulation and support.

I’m also engaged within VINCI Chair in a new research field (PhD thesis Julie LATUNE, 2015-2018)
Today, french organisations are investigating different offseting methods like mitigation bank system or like landscape approaches. These offsets pose ecological, social, economic, legal and ethical issues. Many people can see offsetting like a right to destroy nature, others like a trading market of nature, or like the loss of the agricultural activity (losing land). How to manage correctly the mitigation hierarchy (avoid, minimize and offset). The goals of this PhD are linked to these questions: How manage land availability? How tackle mitigation bank system? How to deal with different landscape activities? What are the human conflicts involved? What is the adequate governance to establish this policy?

I’m also engaged in a large projet ITTECOP (2014-2017) with the aim to study the possible biodiversity renaturation within transport infrastructures.

At last, I’m engaged in a LabEx BASC project INDISS (2016-2019) INnovation and Design In Sociotechnical Systems.

Teaching

My classes are linked to the curriculum of engineers AgroParisTech and to the Master School BASE in Paris-Saclay University, M1 and M2 (Master BEE, Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution and others Masters as Environment, Territory, Landscape, Forest). I teach and organize classes around Ecological Engineering, Ecology and Society and Ecological Restoration subjects.
