Cyrille Violle

Cyrille Violle uses a trait-based characterization of organisms (plants, animals, microbes) to answer questions in functional ecology, community ecology, biogeography and agroecology. In particular, he investigates the mechanisms driving biotic interactions and species coexistence, the role of intraspecific and interspecific variability in community assembly processes, and the ecological and evolutionary drivers of species traits, trade-offs and ecological strategies.

Key words: community assembly, functional diversity, functional trait, functional trade-off, trait-gradient analysis

Areas of expertise: agroecology, biogeography, community ecology, metabolic ecology, plant ecology, trait-based ecology
