My activities

Initial training

  • Optional module 1st year engineer : Tree, you said tree but what do trees tell us ?   
  • Biogeochemical cycle and ecosystem functioning/tree   
  • Agronomy 1: Soil, climate   
  • Population genetics   
  • Module Biological indicators of soil condition

Professional training

  • Professional training on Mycorrhizae
  • A better understanding of plant-soil-microorganism interactions in order to enhance the potential of soil symbiotic microbial communities to improve plant and crop productivity   

  • Study of the mycorrhizal status of soils   

  • Cultural practices favourable to mycorrhization as a relevant and operational indicator of soil biological quality

Research project

  • MYCOAGRA project (2017/2020) led by the Chamber of Agriculture of Dordogne "Interests of MYCOrhization in AGRicultural and Agroforestry practices": promoting agricultural practices favorable to the establishment of mycorrhizal symbiosis in soils
