Connectivity in metacommunity of farmland bird

The spatial reshuffling of biodiversity question the role played by species dispersal ability and population connectivity in these dynamics. To achieve this, we develop a multi-species and spatially explicit model of metapopulation dynamics accounting for climate and habitat drivers. Continue reading

The Red-bellied Squirrel colonisation

The Red-bellied Squirrel was introduced on the Cap d’Antibes (Alpes Maritimes) in the late 1960s. We developed a model coupling a cellular automaton which estimates the probability of dispersal and a model of metapopulation dynamics to estimate the risks of extension of it range. Continue reading

Connectivity of the meta-community in urban landscape.

We assessed the fit of these predicted connectivity to empirical data on plant communities embedded in an urban matrix. And our results indicate that connectivity estimated with the flow metric and taking into account the matrix heterogeneity produce the best fit to the empirical data. Continue reading

Heron recolonization in France

We investigate the recolonization dynamic of the Grey Heron in France, by an approach that makes use of both census and habitat suitability data and integrates them into a spatially explicit model of colonization dynamics (cellular automaton). Continue reading
