Tit community dynamics

Climate change drives major modifications in wintering weather and the effects of these changes on communities should be a major concern to improve understanding about the biodiversity responses in the face of climate change. To investigate this topic the bird … Continue reading

What is the expected impact of orography on the shift of species distribution range ?

This project aim to disentangle the complex effects of orography on the shift of species distribution ranges. More particularly we focus our study on the common bird, with the breeding bird survey. Continue reading

The farmland bird in the face of land-use and climate changes

We used the Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) to integrate likely changes in species climatic suitability, based on species distribution models, and changes in area of farmland, based on the IMAGE model, inside future climatic suitable areas. Continue reading

Biodiversity and temporal constraints

We developed a dynamic model that mimics the use of different resource types by a community of competing species. We investigated the effects of different environmental constraints (affecting either directly the growth rate of species or having indirect effects on their resources) on several biodiversity indicators.
