EcoFlowS team

The EcoFlowS team develops, test and transfers tools for predicting the ecological consequences of the management and the restoration of stream physical habitats (hydrology, hydraulics, temperature, substrate, intermittency). We target quantitative results that are transferable across a wide range of ecosystems and have quantified uncertainties. For this purpose, we use a comparative approach of biological dynamics and trends (fish, macro-invertebrates, other groups) in a wide range of systems, from steep mountain streams to large rivers and intermittent streams.

Multiple spatial and temporal scales are involved in our approaches, with the aim of :

  1. better understanding the causal mechanisms that drive individual behaviour, and
  2. predicting the consequences of these mechansims at the larger scale of population and communities, in stream reaches and networks.
