My expertise / skills : We have developed in our center, the Ecolab - a new generation of environmental simulator dedicated to experimentation in ecology. Each Ecolab includes a laboratory room and three identical closed environmental chambers, each of a volume around 13 m3, and enables precise real-time programming of weather conditions (temperature, humidity, and precipitation), of the concentrations of some atmospheric gases (CO2 and O2, as well as O3 in three chambers) and of several artificial lighting conditions. Each environmental chamber is equipped with a mesocosm to confine terrestrial or aquatic ecosystems. This mesocosm consists of a stainless steel tank with a double jacket and enables real-time control of thermal gradients in the ecosystem independently from the atmosphere. Artificial light can be provided by incandescent bulbs, plasma lamps or modular LED source depending on the research project.

I am working on :
Biology of interactions
Evolutionary Biology
Keywords : ecology, ecosystems, climate-ecosystem feedback
Project description : We are searching for potential projects about climate-biodiversity-ecosystem feedbacks that would require advanced tools for climate control, ecosystem monitoring and process measurements.
Networking opportunities : We will attend the next BES and EGU meetings.
