The Center for Functional and Evolutionary Ecology (CEFE) is currently the largest French research center in Ecology. Its mission is to perform independent, fundamental scientific research on the dynamics of biodiversity, planetary environmental change, and sustainable development. For that they work at a great variety of field sites around the world, but developed particular expertise in Mediterranean and tropical ecosystems. One of CEFE's main objectives is to develop scenarios on the evolution of biological systems, as well as strategies for their conservation and their restoration.
