Research interests

My main research aims to determine the fundamental components of the acoustic communication (sound production and hearing) in fishes and their evolution. The studies describe and explain the mechanisms implied in sound production and reception in various taxa of adult teleosts. It integrates data in (functional) morphology, histology, physiology, behaviour, ontogeny, biogeography as well as physics and acoustics. Moreover, the comparison of taxa living in different environment attempts to clarify the influence of environmental factors on the sound production. Other studies concern mainly the morphology of teleost fishes and the way they are adapted to their environment.

Sujets de recherche

Mon principal sujet de recherche consiste à déterminer les composantes fondamentales de la communication acoustique chez les poissons et comprendre comment elles ont pu évoluer au cours du temps. Mes études décrivent et expliquent les mécanismes impliqués dans la production et la réception de son chez différents taxons de poissons téléostéens adultes. L’étude intègre des données en morphologie fonctionnelle, histologie, physiologie, comportement, ontogénie, biogéographie ainsi que des éléments de physique et d’acoustique. De plus, les études comparent des groupes zoologiques vivant dans différents milieux pour tenter de clarifier l'influence des facteurs environnementaux sur la production de sons. D'autres sujets concernent principalement l'étude de la morphologie chez des poissons téléostéens dans le but de comprendre comment ils se sont adaptés à leur environnement.
