Editorial board


Pierre Boudry

Research scientist, French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer), Head of Ifremer Research Unit Functional Physiology of Marine Organisms, Associate Director of the joint research unit LEMAR – Marine Environmental Sciences Laboratory

Since 1994, Pierre’s research is dedicated to genetics and genomics of bivalves. Most of his research is connected with aquaculture or conservation issues and has led to over 130 publications, resulting in his recent designation as the most productive author in a recent bibliometric analysis of oyster research worldwide.

François Le Loc’h

Research scientist, French Research Institute for Development (IRD)

François research activities are focused on the dynamics of coastal food webs. His approach of trophic ecology is generalist, combining field and laboratory works as well as modeling, from the naturalist predator-prey relationship to the macro-ecology theoretical food webs.

Olivier Thébaud

Research scientist, French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer), Director of the joint research unit AMURE – Centre for the Law and Economics of the Sea.

Olivier’s research focuses on the development of decision-support approaches and tools for the management of coastal and marine resources, including ecological-economic modeling, and the economics of ecosystem-based approaches to natural resources management. Key areas of application include the regulation of commercial and recreational fisheries, aquaculture, multiple ecosystem uses, chronic and accidental pollution of coastal waters, as well as biodiversity conservation policies including Marine Protected Areas.

Verena Trenkel

Research scientist, French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer)

For the last two decades Verena has been working on abundance estimation methods as well as the use of statistical modelling and indicators for ecosystem assessments, as well as population, community and socio-ecosystem studies. She has a long standing interest in traditional and alternative observation methods for abundance monitoring and behavioral studies.

Ellen Kenchington

Senior scientist with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

Ellen role is to provide scientific advice on issues related to benthic species and habitats both nationally and internationally. Her research focuses on the benthic ecology of the continental shelf and slopes; impacts of fishing on benthic communities; and population genetics of marine organisms. Outcomes of her research contribute to identification of vulnerable marine ecosystems (VMEs), ecologically or biologically significant areas (EBSAs); marine protected area selection and design; and sustainable fishing practices.

Nicole Richoux

Associate Professor of Zoology, Rhodes University, South Africa.

My research relates to trophic interactions in aquatic ecosystems, with particular focus on trophic pathways that connect habitats, feeding plasticity in consumers, and food web dynamics through space and time.
