Delphine Bonnet serves as a Lecturer and as a Zooplankton Ecologist at the University of Montpellier 2, France. Her research focuses on climate effects on zooplankton and trophic ecology, particularly on copepods and more recently on gelatinous plankton. She defended a Ph.D. thesis on the impact of food quality and quantity on the development and reproduction of two marine calanoid copepods in 2001 (the Ph.D. degree from Paris 6 University, under the supervision of Dr. François Carlotti). She realized, in 2002, a postdoctoral study on zooplankton long-term series at Newcastle University with Dr. Chris Frid and then assumed a research position at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, in Dr. Roger Harris’ team, in 2003. She developed several studies on Calanus helgolandicus ecology (egg production, growth rate, development time, etc.) and wrote a review paper on the ecology of this species in European waters. She became a Lecturer in Montpellier in 2006. Her research is now on much more focused on coastal areas. She is currently a Member of the ICES working Group of Zooplankton Ecology.
