UMR Biodiversité Gènes et Communautés (BioGeCo) INRA, population genetics.
I work in the field of evolutionary genetics on species such as European white oak, beech and red oak. My main research relates to genetic conservation and management. I study the relation between European white oak species, their differentiation, genetic structure and adaptation. In the case of beech, I work on spatial genetic structure as well as adaptation. We are developing a new program on marginal population to link genetics and history.
The red oak program aim is to identify best genetic material to optimize reforestation. This year we initiate a new program, to study the genetic component of the red oak invasion.
