To understand and control the tranasmission of disease it is necessary to have detailed knowledge on the different organisms involved and of their environments. The MIVEGEC identifies and measures the effect of biotic and abiotic factors on the dynamics of populations and how they shape ecological niches on spatial and temporal scales. The methodologies used involve those of geomatics, functional ecology, behavioural ecology and morphometrics. They provide evidence of the associations between biological and environmental parameters, thus allowing community structures within ecosystems to be described and understood, as well as the identification of phenotypes of interest and how they vary. These studies explore the physiology, behaviour and interactions among communities within ecosystems (competition, predation, life-history traits of the species or populations involved).

Several different systems are considered:


  • Leishmania / sandflies
  • Plasmodium / Anopheles / Culex
  • Arboviruses / Aedes / Borrelia
  • Babesia / Ixodidae
  • Insect pathogens
  • Toxoplasma
  • Mycobacterium
  • Flu viruses…
