In our lab we seek to understand the causes and consequences of global environmental change in woody vegetation worldwide. Our mission is to provide the best available science to serve forests and woody species conservation and management in rapidly changing climate.

Our research approach

#PlantEcology #VegetationSurveys #FieldExperiments #BigData #EcologicalModels #Fire

We use empirical data collected in the field, experiments, big data analysis and statistical and individual based models to understand the interactive effects of climate change, management scenarios and disturbance regimes on woody plant distribution, structure and composition.


Setting up the experiments for the new SEEDFOR project

A week ago we finally started to set up the experiments on seed emergence and seedling growth in the field ! This is a new French National Science foundation project where we analyze forest transitions under climate change, where we suspect there may be a critical transition from Temperate Forests (Quercus robur, Q. petraea…
