Froidevaux Jeremy

I am a conservation biologist with broad interests in bat ecology and conservation. As part of the CERES project, I will be investigating the effects of spatial and temporal continuity of mosaic landscapes on forest bat and moth communities in southern France.

2014-2018. PhD at the University of Bristol. “Contributions of agri-environment schemes to the conservation of bats and arthropods in European farmland habitats”

2011-2013. MSc in Applied Ecology at the University of Montpellier.

2010-2011. BSc in Life Sciences at the University of Metz.

2008-2010. Technical diploma in Nature Protection and Management, Montmorot.
