I am working with plant population responses to global changes and associated ecological models. The main research questions I am trying to address are :
- How can we account for local scale processes in species distribution models, and especially for large domain predictions of climate change impacts ?
- How can landscape heterogeneity buffers negative effects of global warming on plant populations and on biodiversity ?
- How does climate change affect demographic dynamics of plants ?
- What is the relative importance of biotic processes to understand species responses to climate change ?
To answer these questions, I look at geographical distributions of plants but also zoom in more key processes for plant population such as early life history stages. My research covers the fields of macroecology, global change ecology and population biology.
