LE TALLEC Thomas
Thomas Le Tallec has prepared his doctoral thesis in ecophysiology, entitled "Impacts of light pollution on the behaviours, biological rhythms and physiological functions of a non-human primate, Microcebusmurinus" within the Mixed Research Unit 7179 UMR 7179 « Mécanismes Adaptatifs et Évolution » (CNRS/MNHN) from 2011 to 2014 under the co-direction of Marc Théry and Martine Perret. His work shows that exposure to light pollution in urban/peri-urban environments could modify the locomotor and feeding behaviours of nocturnal mammals, alter their perception of the photoperiod and, consequently, disrupt their reproduction and seasonal thermoregulation. He is an Associate Professor.
