ESE (Ecology, Systematics and Evolution)

UMR 8079 Université Paris-Saclay, CNRS, AgroParisTech

General scientific orientation

The scientific activities of ESE cover a wide range of research in ecology and evolution, focusing on the origin and dynamics of biodiversity and the evolution and functioning of ecosystems. Several ESE researchers study the effects of global changes, particularly climate change, for populations, communities and ecosystems, and the response to such changes.
Our approaches include in situ observations, experimentation, and mathematical modeling. Research projects are conducted at different scales, from genes to ecosystems, and a wide range of study organisms (plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms).
The disciplines underlying our research include plant ecophysiology, ecology (e.g. community ecology, conservation ecology, ecosystems ecology, population ecology), ecological engineering, ecotoxicology, systematics, evolution (e.g. functional and evolutionary genetics and genomics, co-evolution, evolution and development) and the social sciences for the study of socio-ecosystem adaptation. Some research projects developed at ESE involve interdisciplinary studies at the interface of ecology and social sciences. Among these projects, some are closely linked to societal concerns and contribute to the development of decision-making tools for managers of biodiversity and social-ecological systems.
