Landscape Ecology. DOI: 10.1007/s10980-016-0417-3 Context: Light pollution is a global change affecting a major proportion of global land surface. Although the impacts of Artificial Light At Night (ALAN) have been documented locally for many taxa, the extent of effect of ALAN at a landscape scale on biodiversity is unknown.Objectives: We characterized the landscape-scale impacts of ALAN on 4 insectivorous bat speciesPipistrellus pipistr[...]

Global Change Biology In press DOI: 10.1111/gcb.13036 As light pollution is currently considered to be a major threat to biodiversity, different lighting management options are being explored to mitigate the impact of artificial lighting on wildlife. Although part-night lighting schemes have been adopted by many local authorities across Europe to reduce the carbon footprint and save energy, their effects on biodiversity are unknown.

Acta Oecologica 62: 58-65 If the negative effects of road networks on biodiversity are now recognized, their role as barriers, habitats or corridors remain to be clarified in human altered landscapes in which road verges often constitute the few semi-natural habitats where a part of biodiversity important forecosystem functioningmay maintain.

Ecological Indicators 46:351–357 AbstractThe study of community responses to environmental changes can be enhanced by the recent development of new metrics useful in applied conservation: relative rarity, ecological specialisation and functional diversity. These different metrics have been critically assessed independently, but are rarely combined in applied conservation studies, especially for less-studied taxa such as arthropod[...]

The diversity of wild plant species was not affected by crop genetic diversity. However, we showed for the firs[...] PDF icon Chateil2013.pdf

Insect Conservation and Diversity 6 : 319–32. 1. The characteristics of communities are determined by dispersal processes that are driven by landscape structure and species characteristics (traits). Understanding these processes requires a better assessment of the spatial scales that matter to species, based on their traits. This can be particularly addressed in an urban context where habitats are highly fragmented.2. We assessed the effects [...] PDF icon Penone_etal_ICAD2012.pdf

However, the effects of climatic and habitat gradients on species distributions have generally been considered separately. Here, we explore the relationships between the habitat and thermal dimensions of the ecological niche in European comm[...]

While this process has been related to the effects of anthropogenic activities, whether and how BH is occurring across regions and the role of native species as a driver of BH has hardly been investigated. Here, we examine the trend in the community specialization index (C[...]
