This team aims at understanding ecological and evolutionary mechanisms associated with biological invasions, and tree/forest-insect interactions in the context of global change. The studies are conducted at the organism, population and community levels, and consider how environmental conditions (e.g. micro-climatic conditions, tree health status and silvicultural practices…) influence insect performance and fitness, shape local insect community composition and structure, and ultimately forest biodiversity.
