As scientists, we seek for a better insight into the functioning of natural and managed ecosystems. Through analysis of data from experiments and field monitoring from all over the world, we try to understand the interactions between our biotic and abiotic environment. New insights are translated into mathematical models used to predict the future state of ecosystems in the context of changing environmental conditions (climate change, anthropogenic disturbance).
