Antoine Perrier, PhD. Research in Ecology and Evolution.
Postdoctoral fellow at the Galloway Lab, University of Virginia (USA).
I am interested in the ecological and evolutionary processes governing species distribution, and the diversity of the tree of life. In past projects, I assessed how past evolutionary, demographic and environmental factors play a role in shaping contemporary species' range limits, using the North American plant species Arabidopsis lyrata subsp. lyrata. In my current project, I am assessing how these factors can shape the fate of population at warmer range limits under the rapidly deteriorating anthropogenic climate change, using the American bellflower Campanula americana as study system.
