Introduction
I’m currently working on the synergies between agriculture and biodiversity in wetlands. I’m studying the landscape effect on biodiversity in agricultural fields, in the light of the agricultural practices. My main goal is to provide some advice on the adaptation of landscape management and agricultural practices to farmers, land managers and stakeholders in order to conciliate agricultural production and biodiversity conservation.

Description
  • I worked with Henrik Pärn and Brett Sandercock on the home range size of water voles (Arvicola amphibius). We used spatially explicit capture-recapture models to assess the influence of sex and age on the home range size.

Preprint
Breeding birds in agricultural landscapes have declined considerably since the 1950s and the beginning of agricultural intensification in Europe. Given the increasing pressure on agricultural land, it is necessary to identify conservation measures that consume little productive land. We tested the hypothesis that field margins represent substitute...
Article

Increase in pesticide use and landscape homogenization are two key drivers of the decline in farmland biodiversity. The effects of these two drivers are often complex, interactive and vary among taxonomic groups. Our study tested the hypothesis that pesticide use influences the effect of different components of landscape complexity on different tax...

Our study tested the hypothesis that pesticide use influences the effect of different components of landscape complexity on different taxonomic groups. We assessed the abundance and diversity of 7 taxa in 118 crop fields in 32 rice paddy landscapes of 1*1 km in the Camargue. For each landscape, we measured the length of different field margins, the...
