ESE (Ecology, Systematics and Evolution)

UMR (Joint Research Unit) AgroParisTech, CNRS, Université Paris-Sud

General scientific orientation

The Ecology, Systematics and Evolution unit performs studies on ecology and evolution focusing on the origin and dynamics of biodiversity and the evolution and functioning of ecosystems. The approaches used to address these goals are based on synergy between in situ observations, experimentation, and mathematical modeling, as a tool for understanding, synthesis and projection. The consequences of global change, including global climate change in particular, for populations, communities and ecosystems, and the response to such changes are transverse themes within the unit. Some of the research of the unit is closely linked to societal concerns and contributes to the development of decision-making tools for managers of biodiversity and socio-agroecosystems. These innovations require a very high scientific level and the development of interdisciplinarity on this basis.

Fields of research

The unit is composed of six teams :
Microbial diversity, ecology and evolution team (DEEM)
♦ Microbial diversity and its origin
♦ Molecular and phylogenomic phylogeny
♦ Metagenomics and “single-cell -omics”
♦ Microbial ecology
♦ Ecology and evolution of interactions between microorganisms and birds

Population and community ecology team (EPC)
♦ Population conservation and management
♦ Landscape ecology, changes in the uses of ecosystems and urbanization
♦ Ecotoxicology
♦ Macroecology and climate change

Plant ecophysiology (EV)
♦ Carbon balance sheet and ecosystem functioning
♦ Plant biophotonics
♦ Photosynthesis and environment

Angiosperm evolution team (Eva)
♦ Evolution of flowers and pollen
♦ Evolution of complexes of species and genome organization

Evolutionary genetics and ecology team (GEE)

♦ Genomics of adaptation in fungi
♦ Reproduction systems and sex chromosomes
♦ Functional and evolutionary genomics of plants

Ecological trajectories and society team (Tess)
♦ Adaptation, transformation and climate change
♦ Ecological compensation
♦ Sustainability of urban and periurban zones
♦ Ecoevolutionary dynamics in agricultural landscapes
♦ Interactions between biodiversity and society
♦ Local ecological knowledge in the management of socioecosystems
♦ Species translocations and societal issues
