Karl Matthias Wantzen

le Professeur Wantzen, qui a passé son habilitation à diriger des recherches sur l'écologie fonctionnelle des corridors fluviaux, a joint l'université de Tours en 2010. Chercheur de la société Max-Planck, architecte d'un cours Master/PhD en Ecologie et Conservation au Brésil, où il maintient des collaborations scientifiques depuis 1993, et coordinateur d'un groupe de recherche sur les interactions aquatiques-terrestres à l'université de Constance avant de devenir tourangeaux, il est l’auteur de plus de 70 publications et est éditeur d'une douzaine de livres.
