Evolutionary ecology and epidemiology of the systems host-parasite:
There was, in broad outline, during my career, two periods. The first one, up to the early 2000s, consisted of the study of the ecology of the interactions host-parasite and interactions host-parasite-environnement and in the study of the evolutionary relations in the systems host-parasite by using an essentially experimental approach and a privileged model, the schistosome, helminthe parasite of the Man.
During the second period (2000 – present), I wished to have a wider vision of these interactions, integrating evolutionary ecology and epidemiology, by using an approach integrated by the understanding of the functioning of the homes of transmission of parasitoses, allying epidemiological studies of ground and experiments in laboratory. So, to the model nématode parasite of the eel, I analyzed the epidemiology, the biology and the ecophysiology of the relations host-parasite. Concerning the model of schistosomes, I analyzed the interactions sex dependent during the biological cycle and the functioning of the homes  of transmission in zones of  weakness (Oman) and strong (Benin, Gabon) endemic diseases.
Evolutionary ecology and epidemiology to schistosomes: impact of the polyparasitisme on the parasitic diversity My project concerns the evolutionary ecology and the epidemiology of the sustainable interactions to schistosomes.
I suggest analyzing the impact of the polyparasitisme on the parasitic diversity. I shall be interested in the polyparasitisme inter-populations to understand the role of the hosts reservoirs in the re-emergence of schistosomoses, in the polyparasitisme inter-species to detect events of introgressives hybridizations in strongly endemic zones of the schistosomose and in the polyparasitisme inter-genres (Schistosoma and Plasmodium) to analyze the quantitative and qualitative impacts of schistosomes on the paludal infection and, on the contrary, the impact of Plasmodium on the genetic variability and the antigenic polymorphism of schistosomes. I realize my research according to an approach integrated by the understanding of the functioning of the homes of transmission of parasitoses, by allying epidemiological studies of ground and analyses in laboratory. The results have practical implications on the structure of the communities of parasites and hosts and can be used for purposes of control of schistosomoses
