Ludovic Henneron
I am a soil ecologist working on plant-soil interactions and ecosystem functioning. My work mainly focus on how plant communities and land management affects soil biodiversity and processes.

Presentation

The aim of my post-doc position is to assess how tree diversity drive soil biodiversity across European forests. My work more particularly emphasizes on soil faunal organisms & food web and adopts a trait-based approach in a attempt to improve genericity and predictability regarding tree-soil biodiversity linkages.
