My expertise / skills : I am ornithologists and ecologist by trainning. I focus on biogeography and community ecology especially from a trait perspective (functional biogeography). Generally, I try to understand how diversity patterns in space are generated in nature. I am interested in ecological concepts and the theory. Since 2003, I have been working on several projects on diversity along environmental gradients in sub-Saharan Africa (Cameroon, Southern Africa). Recently, I am looking for projects at the interface between humanities (philosophy, art, aesthetics, urban design) and ecology and projects on biodiversity with a potential impact on the nature conservation. I consider crucial understanding of how organisms see and utilize their ecological space for proper description of mechanisms generating diversity patterns. I am interested in practical solutions of environmetal issues.
