I'm a CNRS Research Associate (CR1) in the department 'EDB - Evolution et Diversite Biologique', University of Toulouse, France.

My main research focuses on:

  1. -Understanding the relationship(s) between biological diversity (within and between species at different levels of biological organization) and ecosystem functioning in fresh waters,

- Determining the interacting effects of humans activities (e.g. biological invasions, climate change) on these relationships



August 2015

Libor Zavorka just joined the group as a visiting PhD student for a 3 month-period to investigate trophic interactions among native and non-native Salmonids


May 2015

New articles by Zhao and Charlotte about fish in the gravel pits as part of the project ISOLAC.


April 2015

Carine Rigolet just joined the group as a post-doc and will work on the stable isotope structure of food webs in gravel pit lakes.


February 2015

New article by Alban on the effect of non-native fish introductions on the global patterns of stable isotope structure of fish community!           PDF

January 2015

The Biodiversa project SALMOINVADE and its website


December 2014

Postdoc position in community and ecosystem ecology (ISOLAC project) opening!

December 2014

New article by Zhao Tian on the functional importance of intrapsecific trait variability


September 2014

August 2014

Just back from field work in lakes nearby Seattle (Washington) with Julian Olden. This was great! Let’s collect the same data in France (CNRS - PICS project).

June 2014

Julian Olden (University of Washington, Seattle) was in Toulouse for collaborative field work in June 2014.

We also spent some time visiting the Lot valley with Gael Grenouillet, Lise Comte and Mathieu Buoro
