Descriptif :

Research  I spent most of my career studying interactions between insect predators and their prey. My first scientific interests is the means predators use to assess habitat and prey quality. secondly, I am also interested in the co-evolution of predator and prey life-history traits. This led me to participate to research on rapid adaptation of aphids submitted to predation stress. I am close to retirement ! My main worry is to tidy up papers in progress and results not yet analyzed. Then, I am shocked by the biodiversity high erosion rate, and the lack of reaction of society with the exception of a minority of people. In my spare time, I am trying to set up a project to raise public awareness.
