     Post- Doc - MNHN/Collège de France

    In this post-doc I continue the research started in New Caledonia during my PhD, focusing precisely in two main problems :

    - The environmental and historical correlates of the micro-endemism of the fauna.
    - The composition of this fauna and its disharmonies.

  • My thesis entitled "Systématique, évaluation et amélioration des connaissances taxonomiques sur la biodiversité".
    Theme of PhD research :
    Systematics and Taxonomy of Dictyoptera
    Characterization of Micro-Endemism in New Caledonia
