Plenary lecture


Anthony HarrelAnthony Herrel is a permanent researcher of the CNRS, France working at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle where he heads the Function and Evolution team. He received his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Antwerp in Belgium and did postdoctoral fellowships in Belgium as well in the USA. He spent one year each at Northern Arizona University, Tulane University, and Harvard University where he investigated the evolution of complex, integrated musculo-skeletal systems. He is also a part-time professor at Ghent University in Belgium. His research interests broadly encompass the evolution of form and function, mostly using vertebrates as a model system. He developed methods for measuring bite forces in vivo and combines approaches from a wide array of disciplines in biology ranging from transcriptomic and metagenomic approaches, over biomechanical modeling and functional morphology, to ecological and behavioral studies. An important part of his research is devoted to field studies of different organisms and he collaborates widely with researchers around the world. He has nearly 300 publications and has supervised many master students, PhD students, and post-doctoral researchers. He is an associate editor for Functional Ecology, the Herpetological Journal, Zookeys, and the European Journal of Anatomy and is member of the editorial board of the Journal of Zoology, the Journal of Morphology, Zoology, and the Journal of Comparative Physiology A.
