Description of the thesis topic
Study and development of new predictive models of species distribution for application in a global change context.
More specifically, the candidate will use statistical and mathematical approaches to take into account the trophic structure of interactions in latent variable models. The candidate will also focus on the development of models that take into account different data sources.
LECA, is a joint research unit n°5553 between CNRS and the University Grenoble Alpes (UGA). The main objective of LECA is to understand the mechanisms driving the origin and maintenance of biodiversity, the spatio-temporal dynamics of biodiversity and the associated functions at various organisational levels (i.e. from gene to landscape), and predicting their response to a variety of drivers (climate change, pollution, land use change…). We use concepts, theories and methods from ecology and evolutionary biology and set up observatory, experimental and modelling approaches (LECA is leading WP1 of PARLARE). We also develop concepts, methods, and recommendations for evaluating and measuring ecosystem services (LECA is strongly involved in WP2), for predicting the response of biodiversity and ecosystems to environmental change and for setting up conservation strategies.
