John D. Thompson



Based in Montpellier since 1989, my research concerns the ecology, evolution and conservation of Mediterranean plants with a focus on the ecological niche of species that occur on major ecological transitions in Mediterranean mosaic landscapes. All my current work is undertaken in a close partnership with conservation management staff in protected areas. I recently published « Plant Evolution in the Mediterranean - Insights for conservation, 2020, Oxford University Press, 464p ». I am president of the scientific committee of both the Mercantour National Park and the Narbonnaise Regional Park in the south of France.
