INRA Engineer in Agronomy

Diplôme d’Ingénieur d’Etat, spécialité agriculture, Ecole National Supérieure Agronomique de Montpellier (ENSAM).

    • Current :

My activities are mainly related to orchard birds and comprise two complementary research approaches:

(i) The caracterisation of the impacts of both farmer practices and landscape on birds. My aim is to identify tools for assessing the biodiversity of orchard birds and to derive indicators of the environmental quality of such agro-ecosystems;

(ii) More recently, the quantification of the role of bird biodiversity for the control of codling moth, a major insect pest in pomefruit orchards.

    • Recent past:

Detection of insecticide resistance in codling moth: identification of enzymatic resistance mechanisms, development of biochemical and biological resistance tests, and analyses of their genetic determinisms.
