les transferts terre-mer et leurs conséquences socio-écosystémiques,
la conservation de la biodiversité et la gestion des usages,
les relations entre sciences et société.
Son objectif est d’améliorer la compréhension du fonctionnement et de l’évolution du socio-écosystème côtier, dans un contexte de changement et dans une perspective de gestion intégrée, en privilégiant une approche interdisciplinaire et intersectorielle le long du continuum terre-mer.
The 3715 Phenotypic Plasticity research network (PlasPhen) is a French research network funded by the CNRS, on the theme of phenotypic plasticity. Phenotypic plasticity can be broadly defined as the response of phenotypes to their developmental or expression environment, for a given genotype. The objective of this network is to promote exchanges between researchers and academics based in France, whose work deals with phenotypic plasticity, its genetics and its evolution. The diversity of phenotypes, environments, and organisms studied in this network is illustrated by the word cloud above, made in real-time by the participants of the 2020 meeting of the network and available on the website of the network:
This GDR is scientifically co-led by Luis-Miguel CHEVIN (CEFE CNRS, Montpellier) and Vincent Debat (ISYEB MNHN, Paris), and administratively managed by the CEFE, in Montpellier. This is his second term for a period of 5 years (2019-2023), following a first term of 4 years (2015-2018).
Since 2004, the international French-speaking network ECOBIM has brought together about 120 people from 30 research teams in bilateral collaborative actions in the field of ecotoxicology of aquatic environments on 2 axes, trans-Atlantic and trans-Mediterranean. The Network also counts among its members actors from the economic and cultural world: aquaculture resource operators, parks, aquariums,…. Ecotoxicology must adapt to the changing context of environmental chemical contamination (new molecules, interactions with climate change, etc.) by developing new skills in environmental assessment tools and methods. The joint approach along the continuums is promoted, through work on all anthropized aquatic ecosystems: mainly rivers and large estuaries. This network also aims to contribute to academic training at doctoral and pre-doctoral level through a well-established presence of teams in European and North American universities, but also to contribute to informing the public about the environmental consequences of pollution.
The main objectives of the network are:
acquire scientific knowledge on new forms of chemical contamination by promoting a multidisciplinary approach between biologists and chemists
promote their application to the operational component of monitoring programmes, in particular by harmonising methods of data analysis and exploitation
develop relevant biological models for monitoring aquatic environments
promote in situ observation by organizing joint work on internationally important workshop sites
access shared analytical means and heavy experimental means
