Short presentation

Activities in the ESE lab cover a wide range of fundamental and applied research in ecology and evolution including phylogenetics and evolution of plants and micro-organisms, population genetics and dynamics, community ecology, conservation ecology, ecotoxicology, plant ecophysiology and biogeochemical cycling. In all cases, our research relies on a combination of in situ observations, experimentation, and mathematical modelling as a tool for understanding, synthesis and prediction. One of the main aims of the research conducted at ESE is to study biodiversity, dynamics, evolution and functioning of ecosystems. This includes in particular the reaction of ecosystems and their associated species to environmental change, whether this is of anthropogenic origin or not. The laboratory, located at Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, has ca. 120 personnel including permanent staff, post-docs and thesis students. The ESE participates actively in several local federative structures including the GIS "Climate, Environment and Society", the IFR 87 "The Plant and its Environment" and FR IDEEV "Institute for Diversity, Ecology and Evolution".

A rare new plant inspires the first genus named after Sir David Attenborough.

A new genus and species of flowering plants from the custard apple family, Annonaceae, has been discovered in the jungles of Gabon by French and Gabonese botanists. The extraordinary genus was named after Sir David Attenborough to honour his influence on the life and careers of the scientists who discovered it. The study was published in the open access journal PhytoKeys.
