Introduction
My main research interest is to understand how biodiversity we observe today evolved. I use methods ranging from phylogenetics to population genetics, with several types of markers, and geological or other biological data to infer and date phylogeographic scenari. I am more specifically interested in the analysis of NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) data, as these provide very powerful tools to answer evolutionary questions,such as fine-scale speciation patterns or complex reticulate evolution.

Article
Marine planktonic eukaryotes play critical roles in global biogeochemical cycles and climate. However, their poor representation in culture collections limits our understanding of the evolutionary history and genomic underpinnings of planktonic ecosystems. Here, we used 280 billion Tara Oceans metagenomic reads from polar, temperate, and tropical s...

Dipterocarpoideae, the largest subfamily in the Meranti family (Dipterocarpaceae), are an ecologically dominant group of trees throughout much of wet tropical Asia. Increasing anthropogenic pressures on this economically important tree family make it essential to resolve their complex evolutionary relationships and understand the distribution of ge...

Malvaceae s.l., the most diverse family within Malvales, includes well-known species of great economic importance like cotton, cacao, and durian. Despite numerous phylogenetic analyses employing multiple markers, relationships between several of its nine subfamilies, particularly within the largest lineage/Malvadendrina, remain unclear. In this stu...

Maples (Acer) are among the most diverse and ecologically important tree genera of the north-temperate forests. They include species highly valued as ornamentals and as a source of timber and sugar products. Previous phylogenetic studies employing plastid markers have not provided sufficient resolution, particularly at deeper nodes, leaving the bac...

Natural history collections and tropical tree diversity are both treasure troves of biological and evolutionary information, but their accessibility for scientific study is impeded by a number of properties. DNA in historical specimens is generally highly fragmented, complicating the recovery of high-grade genetic material. Furthermore, our underst...

Background The wheel tree (Trochodendron aralioides) is one of only 2 species in the basal eudicot order Trochodendrales. Together with Tetracentron sinense, the family is unique in having secondary xylem without vessel elements, long considered to be a primitive character also found in Amborella and Winteraceae. Recent studies however have shown t...

Deep relationships and the sequence of divergence among major lineages of angiosperms (magnoliids, monocots and eudicots) remain ambiguous and differ depending on analytical approaches and datasets used. Complete genomes potentially provide opportunities to resolve these uncertainties, but two recently published magnoliid genomes instead deliver fu...

Conference Paper
With only one species of pike in Europe (Esox lucius Linnaeus, 1758), Esox systematics was considered settled for decades. However recent taxonomical studies of European pikes led to the discovery of two new species: Esox cisalpinus Bianco & Delmastro, 2011 from Northern and Central Italy, and Esox aquitanicus Denys et al. 2014 in the South-West of...

Background: Ciguatera fish poisoning (CFP) is a significant public health problem due to dinoflagellates. It is responsible for one of the highest reported incidence of seafood-borne illness and Groupers are commonly reported as a source of CFP due to their position in the food chain. With the role of recent climate change on harmful algal blooms,...

To investigate the biogeographical history of ashes species of the Eurasian section Fraxinus and to test the hypothesis of ancient reticulations, we sequenced nuclear DNA (nETS and nITS, 1075 bp) for 533 samples and scored AFLP for 63 samples of Eurasian ashes within the section Fraxinus. The nITS phylogeny retrieved the classical view of the evolu...
