LIEC: Continental Environment Interdisciplinary Laboratory

LIEC is a joint research laboratory (UMR 7360) created in January 2013 from the merger of LIEBE UMR 7146, LIMOS UMR 7137 and LEM UMR 7569, who contribute approximately half of the total staff.

The main objective of LIEC is to improve our understanding of continental ecosystems that have been highly disturbed by human activity, with the ultimate goal of their restoration.

To this aim, LIEC is involved in multi-disciplinary research that allies concepts and methods in environmental mineralogy, soil sciences, microbial ecology, physics and colloidal chemistry, eco-toxicology and functional ecology.
