Research topics
Contribution of fish compartment to coastal ecosystem functioning

/ The ecosystem response to global change is directly dependent on the response of the population and therefore on the response of the organisms that constitute them. In this context, I use a multi-scale approach connecting different levels of biological integration to understand the response of the highly productive coastal ecosystem of the “Pertuis charentais” to global change. I focus on the response of the under-studied but valuable fish compartment to two factors varying with global change: the reduced availability of essential fatty acids (HUFA n-3) in the food web, combined with the temperature rise.
My research activities aim to:

  • Study the individual fish responses to the variability of these factors;
  • Assess the impacts of these physiological responses on the energy flows within the food web and thus on its overall functioning.
