Dr. Jérôme Gippet

I am interested in understanding and predicting how human activities drive current changes in distributions of plant and animal species.

During my PhD, I studied the consequences of urbanisation on the spatial distribution of native and invasive ant species, as well as intraspecific variations among urban and rural populations of the urban-tolerant ant Lasius niger.

I am now focusing on human-mediated dispersal. I aim to develop theoretical and modelling approaches to better understand the mechanisms involved in both accidental and intentional translocations of species at different spatial scales.
