Simon Belle
Researcher in Aquatic ecology and Paleolimnology


My main research goal is to understand how aquatic insect species interact together and with their environments over space and time, to inform conservation and management. My work focuses on unravelling the response of invertebrate biodiversity to natural and anthropogenic variations in environmental conditions, with a strong emphasis on climate change.


Field of research:

- Biodiversity

- Aquatic food webs

- Global change

- Aquatic ecosystems

- Paleolimnology

- High altitudes and High latitudes.
