Laure Carassou

My research interest is focused on the responses of aquatic communities (mainly fishes) to environmental factors at various spatial and temporal scales. I have addressed this topic in various aquatic ecosystems, including oligotrophic coral-reef systems in the South Pacific, productive estuarine environments in the northern Gulf of Mexico, river-ocean continuums in South Africa, and coastal marine systems influenced by seasonal upwelling production in the Sea of Oman. I have combined multiple field, laboratory and data analysis approaches in the framework of diverse research projects with the objective of explaining spatial and temporal variability characterizing aquatic communities at various observational scales. Among these approaches, I have a particular interest into multivariate statistical methods allowing the exploration of the structure and dynamics of complex data bases, and the identification and ranking of factors driving the composition of biological assemblages.
