Elise Buisson is an HDR Lecturer in ecology at Avignon University. She works with l'Institut Méditerranéen de la Biodiversité et d’Écologie Marine et Continentale (IMBE)</a. His research concerns the ecology of plant communities, mainly herbaceous ecosystems (lawns), applied to ecological conservation or restoration. This involves the study of theories on the assembly of plant communities, namely to seek the forces allowing the development of communities and to elucidate the mechanisms by which species coexist. She therefore studies disturbances, assembly rules, filters, interactions between species, etc. Her goal is to apply the results of her research to the identification of conservation management tools and restoration techniques. The biological models studied are mainly Mediterranean and Brazilian lawns (rock campos), but she also works on Mediterranean coastal vegetation and wetlands, lawns in Madagascar, etc. She is co-author of 78 articles in the field. She has participated in conferences for the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) since 1998 and has been a member of the SER-Europe administration committee since 2010. She is also at the origin of the French REVER restoration network.
