The growing demand for sustainable agriculture is raising interest in intercropping for its multiple potential benefits. Predicting the existence and magnitude of those benefits remains a challenge given the numerous interactions between the plants, their environment and the agricultural practices. Crop models are crucial to understand and predict...

Functional-structural plant modelling approaches (FSPM) explore the relationships between the 3D structure and the physiological functioning of plants in relation to environmental conditions. In this study, we present a methodological approach that integrated architectural responses to planting design in an oil palm FSPM, and test the impact of pla...

Les épidémies de rouille orangée du caféier (ROC) entraînent des crises socio-économiques qui menacent la durabilité des territoires de production de café en Amérique Centrale. Nous présentons le processus de co-construction d’un modèle de prévision de la ROC et sa mise en œuvre lors d’ateliers participatifs de simulation interactive (SI) visant à...
Article
Full-text available
Promoting plant diversity through crop mixtures is a mainstay of the agroecological transition. Modelling this transition requires considering both plant-plant interactions and plants’ interactions with abiotic and biotic environments. Modelling crop mixtures enables designing ways to use plant diversity to provide ecosystem services, as long as th...

Eight years of studying coffee ecophysiology and monitoring ecosystem services (ES) in a large coffee farm in Costa Rica revealed several practical recommendations for farmers and policy makers. The cropping system studied within our collaborative observatory (Coffee-Flux) corresponds to a coffee-based agroforestry system (AFS) under the shade of l...

Article
Full-text available
The mechanistic model GO+ describes the functioning and growth of managed forests based upon biophysical and biogeochemical processes. The biophysical and biogeochemical processes included are modelled using standard formulations of radiative transfer, convective heat exchange, evapotranspiration, photosynthesis, respiration, plant phenology, growt...

Introduction Light modelling at the scale of organs is essential to account accurately for the complex interactions between biophysical processes such as photosynthesis, stomatal conductance and energy balance. Yet, the calculation of radiative exchanges at fine scales is computationally-intensive and it remains a hindrance to a widespread use of F...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Introduction Intercropping, the mixture of species, is often proposed as an agroecological solution to meet several challenges, such as decreasing the use of chemical inputs and soil erosion, increasing crop productivity in low inputs conditions, and carbon sequestration. However, it is difficult and costly to evaluate the potential of all possibl...

Intercropping, i.e. multiple species grown simultaneously on the same field, used as a way of ecological intensification • Especially mixtures of leguminous and non-leguminous crops could reduce inputs and potential environmental damage through N losses • Intercropping increases system complexity The aim of this study was to calibrate and evaluate...
Article
The DynACof model was designed to model coffee agroforestry systems and study the trade-offs to e.g. optimize the system facing climate changes. The model simulates net primary productivity (NPP), growth, yield, mortality, energy and water balance of coffee agroforestry systems according to shade tree species and management. Several plot-scale ecos...

Full-text available
Agroforestry systems (AFS) are complex to model mainly due to the high spatial variability induced by the shade trees. Recently, the microclimate and light heterogeneity issue in AFS has been addressed using the 3D ecophysiological process-based model MAESPA (Charbonnier et al., 2013; Vezy et al., 2018). MAESPA surpassed the classical sun/shade dic...
Article
Although large amounts of potassium (K) are applied in tropical crops and planted forests, little is known about the interaction between K nutrition and water supply regimes on water resources in tropical regions. This interaction is a major issue because climate change is expected to increase the length of drought periods in many tropical regions...
Thesis
Full-text available
Dans le cadre de cette thèse, nous avons utilisé deux modèles mathématiques complémentaires pour simuler le comportement futur des plantations de café sous conditions actuelles ainsi que sous changements climatiques (1979 -2100). Nous avons étudié leurs bilans de carbone, d'eau et d'énergie pour mieux comprendre et prévoir les effets des changement...

Eight years of monitoring ecophysiology and ecosystem services (ES) in a large coffee farm of Costa Rica yields a range of practical applications for the farmer and stakeholders, thanks to numerous scientific actors and disciplines contributing to our collaborative observatory (Coffee-Flux). • A lot of ecosystem services depend on the soil properti...

Future agronomic practices could be at risk considering the shorter-term climate changes but several effects and interactions are still uncertain. Process based models (PBMs) are generally well suited for predictions under new conditions and can be used as tools to assess management options to mitigate climate change effects on agronomic systems. R...

A meaningful effort for the preservation of endemism would require a deep understanding of its related mechanisms and an accurate estimation of its spatial distribution. Here, we applied methods dedicated to species distribution modelling (SDM) to map an integrated index in India's Western Ghats biodiversity hotspot, the endemic tree richness, and...

In French Guiana, Araceae represents one of the most important monocots family. Montrichardia is one of its 117 genera and it is represented by two species, M. arborescens and M. linifera. Currently, the two species can be found meanly in diverse sites of the region. Recent studies on the species have failed to establish clear geographical patterns...
