Welcome to the Alpine Marmot Project
Dr. Aurélie Cohas is Assistant Professor for the Laboratory of Biometry and Evolutionary Biology at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Aurélie’s key research interests are the behavioural ecology of social mammals, with a primary goal of understanding how animal behaviour can influence animal performances, such as survival and reproductive success.
|Dr. Mariona Ferrandiz-Rovira did her PhD at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 with marmots. She is actually a postdoctoral fellow at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and CREAF. Her specific areas of research are evolutionary ecology and behavioural ecology of vertebrates. Mariona is interested in population dynamics, population genetics and behaviour.||Dr. Christophe Bonenfant is a CNRS researcher working for the Laboratory of Biometry and Evolutionary Biology at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. As an ecologist, Christophe’s work focuses on the population ecology and evolution of life history traits of herbivorous mammals. He has been particularly interested in the effects of sexual selection on population dynamics and life history traits. He pays special attention to the application of its results to wildlife management, mainly of ungulate species through a close collaboration with wildlife managers fom ONCFS (France’s National Office of Game and Wildlife).|
|Dr. Benjamin Rey is a CNRS engineer working for the Laboratory of Biometry and Evolutionary Biology at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Benjamin is an ecological physiologist with a strong experience in both field and laboratory work. His research interests focus on metabolic and mitochondrial adaptations developed by endotherms and ectotherms in response to environmental stress, social constraints and interspecific interactions. He is involved in the marmot project since 2012.|
