Article
Full-text available
The current biodiversity crisis calls for rapid and wide-ranging surveys to assess living organisms. However, some taxa are more elusive than others, making monitoring challenging. This is the case for soil invertebrates, but new molecular technologies such as eDNA metabarcoding could help to alleviate this problem. In this study, we evaluated the...

Article
Citizen science programs, and particularly atlas schemes based on opportunistic biological records, are very important sources of data for species distribution models and conservation. Nevertheless, these data are prone to bias, particularly when they come from less popular or hard to detect/identify species, such as insects. With such biased data,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This contribution is a pilot study on the representation of insects and its evolution in French media discourse. Based on a corpus comprising a fourth of the issues published by the national newspaper Le Monde between 1944 and 2015, it draws on an approach which combines collocational analysis with methods of time series exploration taken from the...
Article
Insects are everywhere: they represent 73% of the total described fauna, and, being linked to every ecosystem function, they play key roles in biodiversity resilience. However, are we humans aware of this? Through a study conducted on French students in Environmental and Human Sciences, we designed a free-associations test-based game to elucidate w...
Thesis
Full-text available
En regardant de près les outils juridiques et autres leviers, pour la conservation de la biodiversité, il semblerait que les invertébrés, et notamment les insectes, soient minoritaires ou absents. Ce constat est d’autant plus paradoxal lorsque l’on sait que 2/3 de la diversité biologique est composée par des insectes. Comment cette diversité essent...
Article
Insects are among the most diverse and abundant organisms on Earth, and they play a major role in ecosystem functioning. To protect them from decline, some conservation measures have been put in place, based primarily on threatened species lists. This is the case in Europe, where 123 of the 105,000 known European insect species are currently protec...

New monitoring technologies are becoming more efficient and accessible to/by everyone, thus they open the way to new frontiers in ecology. DNA barcoding and the study of environmental DNA (eDNA) are among them. As they are very useful for non-invasive surveys and have the advantage that they can bring into light species with low detection rates wit...

Founded by Isablelle Chuine (CEFE-CNRS) and the NGO Tela Botanica, « Seasons Observatory » (Observatoire Des Saisons) it’s a french citizen-science program that aims to make aware, citizens of all ages, about climate change and its impact on biodiversity. The experience has shown that, more than just participate, the ODS citizen-scientist become an...

Question
Hi everybody !
I'm a PhD student aiming to work on Species Distributions Models. A have a large data base for french beetles and I like to see wich environmental variables will be correlated to my distribution.
So I started with the Worldclim dataset and I downloaded the temperature data (1950-2000) from the worldclim website. As is said on their website, I'm getting 12 files, each representing a month http://www.worldclim.org/formats . But I couldn't understand why there are only 12 files if the data is monthly from 1950 to 2000. Is this data only the average of all the Januaries, Februaries....Decembers from 1950 to 2000 ???
Thank you for your help !
