My research projects focus on plant-fungi interactions, more specifically ectomycorrhizal symbioses. Those symbioses result in network, that are supposed to be involved in ecosystem resilience and forest dynamic. I was particularly interested in the distribution of such networks, and their importance in pristine and ancient forest, in Europe, in the Amazon and in the boreal forest of Canada. I know develop projects both in Canada and Argentina, where mycorrhizal symbioses are probably involved in tree migration and facilitation along climatic gradients and at ecotones.
