Work interests

During this period as an emeritus researcher, my projects are to a) continue the transmission of biological samples (tissues, DNA, specimens) to younger colleagues in our laboratory, and transfer specimens to museum collections  (MNHN-Paris, mainly ) for conservation; b) take part in collective efforts and set-up files for ISEM on “ethics and research on wild fauna”, “APA and Nagoya protocol”, management of collections of biological resources, … c ) write scientific articles on data acquired in the field in Martinique and Guyana (around ten subjects are clearly identified); d) write a book on “The mammals of French Guyana”.
