Manuel Blouin's publications

I am a professor in ecology working on interactions between soil macrofauna, microorganisms and plants, to serve ecological engineering and agroecology. From different perspectives (genetics, physiology, ecology, evolution and soil sciences), I test the hypothesis that natural and artificial selection or drift can act at several levels of organization, from the gene to the ecosystem. My main theoretical influences are Nietzsche, Morin, Latour, Darwin, von Bertalanffy, Odum, and Lavelle & others.
