I have a broad interest in biology research, especially global change impact assessment on the evolution of species. Introduction of invasive species has a negative impact on native species and ecosystems leading to extinction. Alternatively, native species may be able to adapt to the introduced species, thus shifting their evolutionary trajectory. Access to time series of species before and after the introduction of an invasive species is critical, yet historical museum collections can provide a window into the anatomy of native species before the arrival of invasive species. I study invasive and native amphibians of the French Antilles. This study is conducted in a multidisciplinary approach using AI tools for identification of species.
