The position is located at the Laboratoire Image Ville et Environnement (LIVE-UMR 7362) which is under the joint supervision of the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg.
This study of unprecedented scope is largely based on the quantitative diachronic study of old maps interpreted in terms of aquatic and riparian habitat types, a field in which the scientific team has already acquired an excellent experience. It should help guiding managers towards operational choices that maximize the benefits of restorations, particularly in terms of hydromorphological and hydro-ecological functionality, biodiversity and ecosystem services, efficiency (cost/benefit ratio), adaptation of environments to climate change and sustainability.
