Introduction
My research focuses on fungal ecology and integrative taxonomy. I'm passionate about discovering and describing new species of fungi in geographically isolated and poorly studied areas, unraveling fungal biodiversity through molecular studies and field surveys. My current works focus on the fungal diversity of Quebec Esker Forests, the taxonomy of specific fungal groups, and scientific popularization. ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-9056-4368

A first official taxonomic checklist of myxomycetes from the French department Aveyron is presented. As the result of data collected by the Mycological and Botanical Association of Aveyron (AMBA), literature and online research, a total of 21 species representing 14 genera, 7 families and 5 orders, were recorded. The following information for each...

The five human senses are the result of complex psycho-physiological phenomena (Geldard, 1953) allowing us to perceive our environment. It is important to stress the psychoneurological aspect of biological processes involving our senses. Indeed, without this link between memory and senses, the latter would not be as important. Identifying a fungus...

Le rare Mycena chlorinosma Singer (Agaricales, Mycenaceae) a été trouvé lors d'un travail d'inventaire mycologique dans le bois de Pouciquot, situé sur le campus de l'université de Toulouse (France). Cette récolte constitue la huitième mention connue de cette espèce en France (métropole et outre-mer), la troisième en France métropolitaine. Une desc...

Understanding and describing the diversity of living organisms is a great challenge. Fungi have for a long time been, and unfortunately still are, underestimated when it comes to taxonomic research. The foundations were laid by the first mycologists through field observations. These important fundamental works have been and remain vital reference w...

Résumé. Les auteurs décrivent en détails et illustrent la première récolte aveyronnaise de Leucopaxillus tricolor (Peck) Kühner, réalisée dans une forêt mixte à Agen-d’Aveyron, en août 2021. Cette espèce est considérée par de nombreux auteurs comme rare, et se retrouve incluse dans les listes rouges de nombreux pays. Abstract. The authors describe...

Eskers are fluvioglacial geological formations providing many natural resources important for the economy and the population. These ecosystems, and the associated fungi, seem unique in the world and have never been investigated to date. They also remain vulnerable as they are highly sought over for wood, sand, and gravel. Our study aims to characte...

Eskers are fluvioglacial geological formations providing natural resources important for the economy and the population. The associated fungal communities have barely been investigated to date. These ecosystems are vulnerable as they are highly sought over for water, wood, sand and gravel. As a result, fungal communities of esker forests might be t...

Les eskers sont des formations géologiques fluvioglaciaires fournissant des ressources naturelles importantes pour l'économie et la population. Caractérisés par des peuplements de Pinus banksiana Lamb., les podzols d’eskers représentent des environnements stressants car présentant des faibles teneurs en nutriments, un pH acide et des conditions xér...

Popularizing research works and science is a crucial part of scientific activities. As a researcher, we need to communicate and make accessible our research to non-specialized interlocutors. It is within this perspective that I participated in a science communication event called "My thesis in 180 secondes", created by ACFAS and hosted at the Unive...

Within the first edition of the DRYADES Conference Series hosted online, I presented the beginning of my M.Sc thesis project at the recently created Ecology Research Group of MRC Abitibi. As the main audience was composed of university students, it was also the opportunity to have a few words about perseverance, audacity and passion during academic...

Observing nature is the most fundamental way to study the diversity of a given group of organisms. The taxonomic description of fungal species allows relatively consistent documentation of this diversity. However, molecular data has rapidly become the norm, and its combined use with morphological and molecular data is encouraged, especially for tax...

Eskers are fluvio-glacial geological formations resulting from the deposition of sediment in subglacial or ice-walled channels during the retreat of glaciers 10,000 years ago. They provide a large quantity of natural resources crucial for the economy and the population, including, among others, high quality drinking water, forests of Jack pine Pinu...

Changing one's living environment and knowing how to take risks, as well as important decisions, is the very essence of scientific research. This presentation attempts to explain simply how I started out in a t-shirt drinking wine, to being dressed as I'm going for a polar expedition. All this through a retrospection of the year 2021, as well as a...

The rare Mycena chlorinosma Singer (Agaricales, Mycenaceae) was found during a mycological inventory work in the 'bois de Pouciquot', located on the campus of the University of Toulouse (France). This collection is the 8 th known mention of this species in France (mainland and overseas), and the 3 rd mention in the French mainland. A description an...

The world of research, and in particular scientific research, is unfortunately very little known to the general public. This world is often considered “apart” for a variety of different reasons depending on the interlocutor. A highly plausible hypothesis is that this type of prejudice is a direct consequence of a certain lack of information and com...

Ils fournissent une grande quantité de ressources naturelles cruciaux pour l’économie et la population, incluant entre autres une eau potable de grande q...

Project
The aim of this project is to study the Ecology, Integrative Taxonomy and Evolution of all fungi associated with esker ecosystems in a context of Increasing Natural and Anthropogenic Disturbances, and Recognition of Autochthonous Ethnomycological Knowledge. Specifically, our objectives are to (i) investigate the functional and taxonomic diversity, composition and structure of fungal networks in esker ecosystems, (ii) document and map the taxonomic diversity of esker fungi by performing large inventory campaigns, (iii) understand the phylogenetic relationships between esker fungal taxa and unravel the evolutionary scenarios and adaptative processes that have led to the observed taxonomic and functional diversity in esker habitats, (iv) assess the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the ecology, taxonomic and evolutionary patterns of esker fungi, and (v) document the mycological knowledge and traditional use of esker macrofungi by local autochthonous communities - in order to reach a better known, protected and highlighted Esker Funga. This project is being conducted within multiple perspectives, such as integrative and interdisciplinarity methodologies, the recognition of Funga as a keystone component in our understanding of ecosystem structure and functioning (triple F initiative), the establishment of fungi-based ecosystem management considering both natural and anthropogenic disturbances, as well as the integration of autochthonous' traditional knowledge in fundamental and applied mycological research.
Project
This project aims to document as precisely as possible the biodiversity of true Fungi, Lichens and Mycetozoa present in the mycologically understudied department of Aveyron, located in the south of France, in particular via traditional methods, such as inventories, publication of species checklist, and DNA Barcoding.
