CV Alex Baumel


Working on ecology, diversity and evolution of plants, I’m interested by wild life and conservation in general. In my other life I’m living with my wife and my son in Marseille, also climbing, hiking and reading a lot.

Cursus

Currently my main project is about carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua) phylogeography and ecology (https://dynamic.cirad.fr/), and I’m working on a lot of other case studies : Armeria sp (conservation genetics), Astraglus tragacantha (conservation), Bufonia perennis (phylogeography), Saxifraga (systematics), Prunus brigantina (Conservation and biogeography), ..., and I keep an eye on Arenaria provincialis (phylogeography and evolution) and Myrtus communis.

Despite the appearances my research objective is clear : To improve new knowledge on diversity because « we can not protect what we do not know » ...

Some key-words and selected papers,

Phylogeography, Biogeography, Plant systematic, Niche ecology, DNA, Polymorphism, Molecular ecology, Diversity, ...
