"Environments and populations are dynamic and constantly changing, 
we must keep them both capable of further natural change" Rosemary Grant

Our Research Program:
To understand how the increasing magnitude of environmental variations impact the structure and feasibility of ecological communities: the conditions compatible with the persistence of co-occurring and interacting species.

How we do it?
combining computational and mathematical methods with field data
following an approach based on structural stability analysis, convex geometry, probability, and network science

Why we do it?
to estimate future changes in ecological communities and understand their past
to quantify the limits at which ecological communities may no longer mitigate the effects of climate change
