ELIAS Marianne

A CNRS researcher at ISYEB since 2009, Marianne Elias completed her PhD in evolutionary biology in Montpellier, focusing on the morphological and genetic diversity of cassava in a traditional cropping system. She then did several post-docs, first in Finland on the ecology of ants, then in the UK on the ecology and evolution of mimetic butterflies in tropical America. Marianne Elias' current research focuses mainly on the diversification of butterflies and their adaptation to their environment in relation to their colourations. In particular, she is taking part in an interdisciplinary project on the evolution of transparency in butterflies. At ISYEB, Marianne Elias is co-leader of the "Diversification et adaptation aux échelles micro et macro évolutives" (DIVA) team.
