How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

1.Investigating the functional facet of biodiversity provides ecologists with a deeper understanding of community assembly and ecosystem processes, from local to biogeographical scales. A central assumption in functional ecology is that interspecific trait variability is higher than intraspecific variability. The ‘stable species hierarchy’ hypothes...

Collembola have been proposed for several decades as a good model organisms to survey soil biodiversity; but most of the studies focused on taxonomic endpoints. The main objectives of this study are to compare the effects of the different land uses, including urban and industrial land uses, while using both collembolan functional and taxonomic biod...
Full-text available
Collembola represent a widespread class of arthropods living mostly in soil and on soil surface. Communities of Collembola have notably been used as bioindicators of several environmental factors such as pollution or land use. Recently, they have also opened perspectives in studying the effects of projected climate change on soil biodiversity. More...

Soil ecosystems, and the fauna they host, are known to provide many services and communities of Collembola can be used as bioindicators of soil functionality. Climate change is often expected to threaten Collembola, however, it is possible that it could also favour them. Previous studies have shown that the structure of collembolan communities can...

Full-text PDF: ENG: In a changing world soil biodiversity is threatened. Yet the ecological functioning of soils depends on its biodiversity. The study of functional traits allows us to establish the mechanistic link between an organism an ecosystem function. This PhD thesis focuses on the current use...
Full-text available
In a climate change context, soil ecosystem services can be threatened, notably through impacts on soil fauna. Collembola can be therefore used for bioindication of soil mesofauna functionality. Here we aim (i) to link distribution of the collembolan communities with their functional traits adaptations to climate conditions at a large scale, (ii) t...
