Resarch within BASC

BASC is structured around three interconnected and interdisciplinary axes focused on understanding and predicting:

  1. the dynamics of interactions between global change drivers including climate change, land use, pollution, and invasive species and their impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem services and socio-ecosystems (SES),
  2. the capacity of organisms, ecosystems and social systems to adapt to global change and
  3. the technical and social innovations  necessary to transform socio-ecosystems from unsustainable to sustainable pathways.

The axes are detailed below. The first two define the vulnerability of socio-ecosystems ; the third one ways in which vulnerability of SES can be reduced by lowering pressures on them. The delineation between these axes does not constitute a causal chain, but rather components that interact to determine the dynamics of SES. These three axes are supported by strategies to build upon a wide range models being developed by BASC teams and their partners and to reinforce analytical, observational and experimental platforms in BASC.

Furthermore, BASC research is organised around four main themes:

Understanding and managing the dynamics of biological diversity
Ecosystem Management and the Agroecological Transition
Linking local and global drivers to the dynamics of socio-ecological systems from landscapes to regions
Sustainable periurban territoires
