Main fields of research and expertise

Anne PANDO has experience in soil ecology: study of interactions between plants, soil and macrofauna (earthworms-termites); setting and monitoring of experiments; assays of enzymatic activity in soils; characterisation of microbial communities within soil using molecular biology techniques : DNA extraction, PCR, DGGE,RFLP, and more recently qPCR. The aim of her research is to study the biological functioning of soils and their evolution. Since a few years, her activities are involved in urban ecology projects, particularly on constructed technosols.
