My expertise / skills : I am an freshwater ecologist particularly fond of fungi. I want to understand how global changes can determine microbial communities diversity and activity and how that impacts freshwater ecosystem functioning. My interests include the effects of temperature, nutrient enrichment, biodiversity changes, fungicides, multiple stressors... My work range from lab to field work, from small tubes to mesocosms and streams. I use microscopy- and molecular-based techniques to assess microbial diversity.
Disciplines
I am working on :
Ecology
Ecophysiology
Microbiology
Molecular Biology
Mycology
Keywords : freshwaters, streams, fungi, bacteria, leaf decomposition, temperature, eutrophication, drought, metabarcoding, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning
Project description : Projects aiming at understanding the impacts of global change on microbial communities diversity and activity with focus on freshwater ecosystems
