I am currently responsible for the Unit research team : "genetic and Breeding of perennial crop species"
Within an international network of private and publics partners, the GF&P team (Genetics and Breeding of perennial species: Forest and Oil Palm models) conducts research on plants with a long cycle, with the purpose of improving and creating varieties. Two genus or species are primarily concerned, eucalyptus and oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.). But, as regards forest trees, efforts also relate to other species, in particular the shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) and the argan tree (Argania spinosa).
The research activities of the GF&P team are directed especially towards four directions:
This approach should help identify alleles that may have potential for introgression in populations or improved varieties. In the case of eucalyptus, for example, it will be a phylogenetic analysis with genes involved in the chain of biosynthesis of lignin and cellulose.
It deals with genes or genomic regions involved in the development of traits such as resistance to pests and pathogens (Fusarium and Ganoderma on oil palm), the contents of lignin, cellulose and polyphenols (in Eucalyptus species), the levels of fatty acids and tocopherols in shea trees, the response to mineral nutrition (eucalyptus, oil palm) and resistance to water stress (eucalyptus).
This line of research concerns the response to environmental factors (biotic and abiotic ones) by characterizing phenotypes according to nested levels: complex characters, character components, chemical contents and expression products. The work will be conducted primarily for oil palm (resistance to Ganoderma and to Fusarium wilt, mineral nutrition and water stress) and eucalyptus (mineral nutrition, water stress).
These researches, which concern both oil palm and eucalyptus, will be used to get a better prediction of genotype in its environment by combining molecular data, phenotypic data and environmental data from sequencing and high-throughput phenotyping. They involve mathematical and statistical models applied to quantitative genetics and population genetics.
My main research fields concern the understanding of perennial crop adaptation through different levels of diversity expression (from genes to phenotypic traits). It also concerns the understanding of genetic structure of populations and gene flow through time and space.
I use the classical approach of the quantitative genetics to analyse the genetic and environmental components in tree adaptation for growth, morphological and wood property traits. In parallel, I conduct research on the effect of competition (density, fertilising) on the phenotypic plasticity of Eucalyptus.
I am now starting research on the molecular basis of adaptation (candidate genes, SNPs) along clinal variation for both type of species: Eucalyptus along altitudinal range and shea tree along rainfall variation. Identification of polymorphism in candidate genes and association tests combined with functionnal analysis of phenotypic traits are the main activities of the new projects.
I have developped research to analyse the impact of global change on genetic structure and gene flow. I have mainly used chloroplast and nuclear microsatellites to study the impact of historical factor (last maximum glaciation), geographic factors (archipelagos) on the genetic structure. At the local scale I have studied the impact of human activity on gene flow and mating system.
I am now using Bayesian model to define populations and analyse gene flow.
I spent 20 years in tropical regions : Republic of the Congo, Madagascar, French Guyana and I made numerous missions in the countries of the tropical zones.
Since 2001 I have been based in CIRAD France, in Montpellier
I have conducted my research in different forest ecosystems and with different species of tropical regions. I have mainly addressed scientific issues in Africa (Republic of the Congo 1982-1984 and 1991-1998), in Madagascar (1986-1991), in French Guyana (1998-2001) and in France (2001-now)
I have developped most of my activites in the frame of Eucalyptus plantations in Africa and Madagascar. The operational goal is the production of clonal varieties of eucalyptus for pulp wood or the production of improved seeds for small scale plantations.
Then I have conducted research in the frame of agroforestry system, mainly in the soudano-sahelian region of Africa with species such as shea tree (Vittelaria paradoxa) and Acacia (Acacia senegal) for the production of non wood forest products (shea butter, arabic gum).
I have also developped some activities with species growing in insular system in New-Caledonia, in French Polynesia (Santalum sp.), in Caribbean see (Pterocarpus officinalis),in Madagascar island (Dalbergia sp., Ravensara aromatica) and in French Guyana (Aniba rosaeodora) to implement strategies of conservation and to develop the principle of management based on molecular and phenotypic information.
· I have done audits and worked as a consultant in various fields of the management of genetic resources (technical and legal aspects), for example:· Genetic improvement of perennial crop and tree species (implementation of selection schemes by a private company in Ecuador) · Strategy for the conservation of threatened species in French Guyana for Aniba rosaeodora in collaboration with French Forest Service and the Channel Group.· Audit of research programmes related to plant genetics and biodiversity. This audit was conducted as part of IPGRI in 2005 to analyze the programme "Laws and Policies Affecting the Conservation, Use and Exchange of Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (project D11 of IPGRI). The audit was financed by the European Commission. Its main purpose was to review the progress made by the D11 project in 2003 in terms of the milestones previously defined and to evaluate accordingly the possible need for reorienting EC funding to these projects in the coming years.
I have supervised 15 PhD students and more than 40 students in Masters and Bachelor of Science programmes at French and foreign universities. I present here the most recent PhD theses I have supervised. I present here the most recent PhD thesis I have supervised in collaboration with colleagues from french and foreign universities
