I am Associate Professor at the University of Montpellier (France). My research focuses on both fundamental and applied topics :
exploring large-scale biodiversity patterns in marine and freshwater ecosystems with a special emphasis on the role of historical and evolutionary processes
describing the patterns and exploring the mechanisms associated with changes in biodiversity from local to global scales, as a consequence of anthropogenic activities (e.g. species invasion, climate change, habitat loss).
Key Words : Biogeography, Community Ecology, Coral reefs, Fishes, Freshwater ecosystems, Macroecology, Macroevolution, Marine ecosystems, Paleoenvironment, Past Climate Change
Welcome to Juan Pablo Quimbayowho recently join my group for a period of 10 months. Juan Pablo will work on a project aiming at evaluating to relative role of ecological and evolutionary processes in shaping reef fish endemism patterns in oceanic islands. This project is part of a close collaboration between my group and the Reef Systems Ecology and Conservation labled by Dr. Carlos E. L. Ferreira at the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Brazil), and the Marine Macroecology and Biogeography labled by Sergio Floeter at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Brazil).
