Dr Frédérik Saltré is a Research Associate, in the Environment Institute at the University of Adelaide, working with Professor Corey Bradshaw (University of Adelaide) and Professor Barry Brook (University of Tasmania) to develop new mathematical approaches to highlight mechanisms underlying the patterns of species extinction across various (temporal and spatial) scales in the aim to provide relevant insights to reduce future biodiversity losses.
Frédérik is an ecologist with a broad range of research interests including paleoecology, climate change, species range shifts, species migration and extinction, ecological modelling, vegetation modelling, point process models and spatial analyses.
Frédérik completed his PhD in Biology Geosciences Agro-resources and Environment at the Center for Functional and Evolutionary Ecology (CEFE) and the University Montpellier 2, France in December 2010 under the Supervision of Dr. Isabelle Chuine (CNRS) and Dr. Cédric Gaucherel (INRA). During his PhD and thereafter, as Postdoctoral Scholar at the School of Advanced Studies (2010-11, CBAE-EPHE, Montpellier, France) and Oregon State University (2011-13, Corvallis, Oregon, USA), his researches focused on vegetation responses to climate changes over long time periods, ranging from the Last Glacial Maximum to 2100. His works mainly addressed questions concerning ecological processes (migration, fitness, reproductive success... etc) driving the ability of vegetation to track its climate optimum over time at various spatial scales.
