Introduction
I am interested in the relationship between the structure of ecological networks and functional diversity, and how both notions interact to affect ecosystem processes. My research focuses on how patterns in network structure emerge, develop and eventually decay in changing environments while also keeping an eye out for variations in functional traits, whether these changes are temporal, natural or anthropogenic. I use plant – insect empirical data as well as simulated data in my models.

Article
Full-text available
Managing regulating ecosystem services delivered by biodiversity in farmland is a way to maintain crop yields while reducing the use of agrochemicals. Because semi-natural habitats provide shelter and food for pest enemies, a higher proportion of semi-natural habitats in the landscape or their proximity to crops may enhance pest control in arable f...
Article
In ecological networks, neutral predictions suggest that species’ interaction frequencies are proportional to their relative abundances. Deviations from neutral predictions thus correspond to interaction preferences (when positive) or avoidances (when negative), driven by non‐neutral (e.g. niche‐based) processes. Exotic species interact with many p...
Article
Many different concepts have been used to describe species’ roles in food webs (i.e., the ways in which species participate in their communities as consumers and resources). As each concept focuses on a different aspect of food-web structure, it can be difficult to relate these concepts to each other and to other aspects of ecology. Here we use the...

The Green Revolution and the introduction of chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides and high yield crops had enabled to increase food production in the mid and late 20th. The benefits of this agricultural intensification have however reached their limits since yields are no longer increasing for many crops, negative externalities on the environ...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The "Ecology & Agriculture" Group of the French Society of Ecology (Sfe) is organizing the "Ecology & Agriculture Summit for Young Scientists" conference (https://colloque.inra.fr/easys/) which will take place from 22 to 24 March 2017 at the Chizé Centre for Biological Studies (http://www.cebc.cnrs.fr/GB_index.htm). This conference is a unique opp...
Article
Full-text available
Species roles in ecological networks combine to generate their architecture, which contributes to their stability. Species trait diversity also affects ecosystem functioning and resilience, yet it remains unknown whether species' contributions to functional diversity relate to their network roles. Here, we use 21 empirical pollen transport networks...
Article
Network studies have described the complex interactions among species. Concomitantly, researchers have searched for signals of ecosystem tipping points and attributes of systems that resist them. A recent study combines these areas, showing that attributes of pollination network structure delay critical transitions, and generating a wealth of new r...
