Jean-Frederic Terrall

The host of the MC project FABA-SHAPE

His research focus on ecology, archaeobiology, historical biogeography and evolution of emblematic species using of quantitative anatomical and morphometric approaches.

Allowen Evin

Her research is at the crossroads of archeozoology and evolutionary biology and is based on the use of geometrical morphometric methods.

Sarah Ivorra

Her research is based on morphometric analyses on plant material to understand the history of the domestication of cultivated plants

Laurent Bouby

He is an expert of archaeological plant macrorests, his research concerns the history of agriculture and the exploitation of plant resources in the north-western Mediterranean since the Prehistory.
