My research covers three main areas :

1. Patterns of diversity in alpine grasslands

-> How ecological and evolutionnary forces have shaped the species assemblages we observed in alpine grasslands (more...)

2. Plant functional fiversity and ecosystem functioning

-> To what extent ecosystem functioning depends on the functional characteristics of the most abundant plant species ?  (more...).

3. Ecohydrology

-> What are the interactions between the water cycle and vegetation dynamics and functioning ? (more...)
