Research Networks

The Chrono-environment laboratory supports or participates in international or national research groups.

- International Research Network Ecosystem health and environmental disease ecology (IRN EHEDE)
Chrono-environment is the support laboratory of the IRN « Ecosystem health and environmental disease ecology » (EHEDE). The IRN EHEDE has the objectives of promoting exchanges and bringing better legibility to research in Eurasia linking ecosystem health (e.g. the long-term sustainability of ecological processes and the integrity of ecosystem services) and disease ecology (e.g. the processes by which diseases can be maintained or controlled in a given ecosystem).
Research is based on the principles of EcoHealth.The IRN EHEDE brings together researchers in conservation and population biology, landscape ecology, geography, parasitology, modelling and in health sciences of Australia, China, France, Japan, United Kingdom.Their research privileged systems approaches and focus mainly on human – wildlife conflicts such as transmission ecology of Echinococcus multilocularis, conservation of the Yunnan Snub-Nosed Monkey and wild Asian Elephant, etc.

- TheTrophic Ecology Research Group brings together researchers and teacher-researchers working on marine, freshwater and terrestrial food webs. The GDR GRET promotes cross-sectional studies between different biomes to test the concepts of theoretical ecology. It is supported by INEE (Institut Ecologie et Environnement) of CNRS, IFREMER and INRAe.
In the Chrono-environnement laboratory, several teacher-researchers in aquatic and terrestrial ecology, notably Francis Raoul and Hélène Masclaux, participate in this GDR and Clémentine Fritsch, a CNRS researcher, is a member of the scientific committee and co-facilitator of the "Trophic ecology and contaminants" workshop.
