The 20 most charismatic species

Our last paper about charismatic species has been published this summer. The same day I landed in Greenland for the fieldwork of my PhD (more about that really soon), without any internet connexion.
But I have not forgotten at all to make the infography of this paper. I just needed some time to landed back in France!

So here it is. The infography regarding the 20 most charismatic species.
The paper is available here : https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0199149

The paradoxical extinction of the most charismatic animals

I am really excited to share this work with you. With the help of researchers in conservation and economics, we came up with this great study about the paradoxical extinction of the most charismatic animals.
There is another personal paradox in this study. During my studies, I never attended to study conservation of these big mammals. Why? Because I thought they were all doing quite fine because of all the attention they got. So I was more willing to work on less charismatic species. Well, I got it wrong and I am really happy that I have been part of this work.

Here are the infography related to this paper. As usual, you can find it in french and in english. The original study can be find here :

HIPE

Already one year since I started my first « payed » job in science (we won’t talk about french salary in research 😉 – at least not today ).
I learned A LOT and in addition of working on Franck’s projects, I decided to work on one of mine : sharing science.

Do you know how work research? Well you need to publish articles in scientific journals, only in english and with crazy vocabulary. Why do I say crazy vocabulary? Because scientists always use terms that only scientists (working on the same research area) can understand. So if you are not a big fan of science, this is not sexy to read. At all.

Which is a pity, because what we are doing is awesome. Really. I am serious :D. And to convince you, I will develop my project of « sharing science » : for any paper I will work on, I will create a one page work where I will summarize the most important information.I hope you will like the idea and learn some new staff.

Well, actually the idea also comes from to the fact that I want to be sure that friends and family know more about what I am doing all day long : No guys, I am not only catching birds in the forest 😉

Here is the first one. Hope you will like it!

oh and by the way, for lazy french, it is available both in French and English!!!
