Article
Full-text available
Agro-ecosystems constitute essential habitat for many organisms. Agricultural intensification, however, has caused a strong decline of farmland biodiversity. Organic farming (OF) is often presented as a more biodiversity-friendly practice, but the generality of the beneficial effects of OF is debated as the effects appear often species- and context...
Article
Full-text available
The relative contribution of ecological processes in shaping metacommunity dynamics in heavily managed landscapes is still unclear. Here we used two complementary approaches to disentangle the role of environment and spatial effect in farmland bird community assembly in an intensive agro-ecosystem. We hypothesized that the interaction between habit...
Article
Significance Agricultural landscape homogenization is a major ongoing threat to biodiversity and the delivery of key ecosystem services for human well-being. It is well known that increasing the amount of seminatural cover in agricultural landscapes has a positive effect on biodiversity. However, little is known about the role of the crop mosaic it...
Article
Full-text available
Aim To evaluate the potential of models based on opportunistic reporting (OR) compared to models based on data from a systematic protocol (SP) for modelling species distributions. We compared model performance for eight forest bird species with contrasting spatial distributions, habitat requirements and rarity. Differences in the reporting of speci...
Article
Full-text available
Global policy for future biodiversity conservation is ultimately implemented at landscape and local scales. In parallel, green infrastructure planning needs to account for socioeconomic dynamics at national and global scales. Progress towards policy goals must, in turn, be evaluated at the landscape scale. Evaluation tools are often environmental q...
Article
Full-text available
Increasing landscape heterogeneity by restoring semi-natural elements to reverse farmland biodiversity declines is not always economically feasible or acceptable to farmers due to competition for land. We hypothesized that increasing the heterogeneity of the crop mosaic itself, hereafter referred to as crop heterogeneity, can have beneficial effect...
Article
Significance The world’s agricultural landscapes have seen dramatic declines in their biodiversity. Because biodiversity responses to land-use changes can be delayed, understanding how current biodiversity is impacted by historical land-use changes is crucial to protect and restore agricultural biodiversity. By utilizing a long-term land-use record...
Data
Species list (per class) and results of the redundancy analysis (RDA). We observe that the three species classes are ordinated along the first axis of the RDA, which is strongly correlated with a gradient of wooded component (see also S4 Appendix). This first axis explains 17.65% of the total variation, while the second axis explains 9.23%. (DOCX)
Data
Correlation between the RDA axis (first two axis) and the environmental variables at each environmental grain. (DOCX)
Data
Database. The database contains all the data from the point counts and GIS data. This includes the ID of the point (“IdPoint”), the year and the session (2 sessions per year from 2009 to 2013). The abundance of each species is reported on the table. The first column (“Gradient_HedgerowsForest200m”) corresponds to the gradient of wooded components u...
Data
Variation partitioning: comparison between two spatial models: Principal Coordinates of Neighbor Matrices (PCNM) and Trend Surface Analysis (TSA). Results are presented without the temporal component. In this analysis, all sessions and years have been pooled together. Because land use varied between years, both the mean (M) and the coefficient of v...
Data
Table of species traits. The groups correspond to those defined by the correspondence analysis (see partitioning per species). The values of the traits correspond to a mean value per species, defined according to the literature. Sources: 1. Guide ornitho, Lars Svensson, Peter J. Grant, Killian Mullarney, Dan Zetterström, edition 2011 2. Website: Oi...
Data
Analysis of species co-occurrence by correspondence analysis. Species are distributed along a tree cover gradient (strong correlation with the first axis of the correspondence analysis). A dendrogram can be built by transforming the ordination value along this axis into the Euclidean distance. Three species classes can be distinguished using the de...
Data
Results of the meta-community pattern analysis on the first two axis of the Redundancy Analysis (RDA). (see Presley, Higgins and Willig, 2010 and Leibold and Mikkelson, 2002) The table present the value of the different indices, computed with the « meta-community function » in Matlab (see Leibold and Mikkelson, 2002): Abs = the number of embedded a...
Data
Variation partitioning for each class of landscapes (open, intermediate and wooded) (4a) and each class of species (open-land, intermediate and woodland species) (4b). The curves represent the variation explained by each variable: environmental (green), geographical (blue), temporal (red) and all interactions in relation to the part of explained va...
Chapter
Understanding the mechanisms that drive the assembly of communities is a long-standing question in ecology. Even in well-known organisms such as birds, there is still a need for clarification of the factors that shape community structure and composition across different spatial scales. This question constitutes both a scientific and societal challe...
Thesis
Les milieux agricoles constituent des habitats essentiels pour de nombreuses espèces mais l’intensification agricole des dernières décennies a provoqué un fort déclin de la biodiversité. Cette intensification a des conséquences tant à l’échelle locale de la parcelle (engrais, pesticides, labour, perte de diversité des espèces cultivées) qu’à l’éche...

Full-text available
Understanding the mechanisms that generate biodiversity patterns require studies at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Communities can be shaped by different processes, not mutually exclusive: demographic stochasticity, dispersal, environmental filtering or biotic interactions. But these processes are strongly scale-dependent and can vary depend...

Understanding the mechanisms that drive the assembly of communities is a long-standing question in ecology. However there has been renewed of interest in this central issue in the last ten years, after the publication of challenging theories (eg, coexistence synthesis of Chesson (2000), Hubbell’s unified neutral theory (2001), Metacommunity theory...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Depuis la fin des années 90, la politique environnementale malgache vise à étendre les sites de conservation de forêts mais bute sur des problèmes de financement pour leur création, leur gestion et leur pérennisation ainsi que pour la compensation des populations locales riveraines de ces forêts. L'émergence de nouveaux marchés environnementaux au...

Question
It seems not possible to insert citations in a text box in Word, at least with the Mendeley plugin. Error message: "Mendeley can not insert a citation or bibliography at this location". Is there a way to solve this problem? A solution proposed in some forums is to convert the textbox into frame. Unfortunately this seems no longer possible in recent versions of Word. Any other ideas? Thanks !

The impact of agriculture on the environment has become a major concern of our society, in a context of global changes and the biodiversity crisis. The recent debate on glyphosate reveals the lack of data on the long-term monitoring of the effects of plant protection products on the environment. The Rural Code (Art. L 251.1) states that the biological monitoring of the territory (SBT) ensures the follow-up of "the possible appearance of unintended effects (ENI) of agricultural practices on the environment". The objective of the GT STEP 500 ENI project is to continue the scientific coordination of analyses using data from the 500 ENI network over the period 2019-2022 to detect possible unintentional effects of agricultural practices on the 4 taxa monitored (flora, beetles, earhworms and birds). We will seek to dissociate the effects of the practices from those of other ecological factors: pedoclimatic context, landscape context, biological interactions.
