Yves-Marie is from France, and received a PhD in Marine Ecology from the University Pierre et Marie Curie, studying reef fish ecology in New Caledonia.  His current research interests are in the mechanisms regulating the demographic abundance of corals and reef-associated fish. Yves-Marie work focuses on the dynamics of coral populations in response to climate-driven disturbances and the overfishing of herbivores. This research contributes to the evaluation of reef resilience and addresses questions relative to reef conservation, especially in the Caribbean.
