Scientific projects

2015-2020 Coordinator of the CESAB / OT-Med Labex project : WOODIV - Origin and congruence of taxonomic, phylogenetic, functional and paleoecological diversity patterns : the model of European-Mediterranean woody plant biodiversity.
Funded by the CESAB and Labex OT-Med. Collaborative program involving 12 laboratories from 8 European countries.

2012-2013 Main investigator of the F2IR project « French Mediterranean biodiversity facing global changes : current issues and future prospects », supervising a post-doctoral fellow who works on the identification of the factors driving taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic diversity patterns at the scale of French Mediterranean.
Project participation

2014-2015 Participation to the European Project (ENPI) GREAT-Med : Generating a Risk and Ecological Analysis Toolkit for the Mediterranean. Agathe Leriche works in collaboration with the post-doctoral fellowship to develop species distribution modelling framework and fragmentation analysis.
