Thèmes de Recherche

My scientific activity has always been dedicated to understanding the mechanisms of Evolution, using drosophilid flies as a model family. With over 350 published papers, the major themes are given below:

Past achievements: Natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster, African origin and geographic adaptations. Ecological specializations of D. sechellia on the toxic fruit of Morinda. Temperature adaptation with two original approaches: male sterility at extreme, low or high, temperatures; chill coma recovery time among geographic races and species. Thermal phenotypic plasticity (Eco-Devo) of quantitative traits: adaptive variations in the shape of the reaction norms.

Present interests: Systematics and taxonomy of drosophilids with special interest in Zaprionus (see Amir Yassin). Phenotypic variability in nature. Morphometrical evolution of quantitative traits: cladic analysis of realized evolvability. Genetics of complex traits, such as sex dimorphism. Pigmentation variation in African Sophophora: a single gene polymorphism restricted to females in many species.
