Bernard SEGUIN, born in 1946, has been working in INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique) since 1967. He started his career in Versailles, then moved to the research center of Avignon after obtaining the diploma of ‘ingénieur agronome’ from the Institut National Agronomique de Paris. His agronomic training has been completed by a PhD thesis in 1971 in the domains of fluid mechanics and atmospheric physics) at the Université de Provence in Marseille. His research activities during about thirty years (1968-1998) at the ‘Station de bioclimatologie’ of INRA in Avignon have mainly concerned the fields of micrometeorology, climatology and remote sensing applied to agriculture and continental biosphere. After 1998, he has been mainly involved in the scientific management within INRA, as deputy -chief of the department « Environnement et Agronomie » until 2002, then after as responsible for the coordination of research work of INRA on climate change and greenhouse effect. On the European scene, he has participated to the past 77 and (partly) 718 COST actions on agrometeorology, and is presently involved in COST 725 on phenology and COST 734 on agriculture and climate change. More largely, he has contributed to several working groups of the Commission for Agricultural Meteorology of WMO. He has been one lead-author for the 4th report of IPCC in 2007 (WG II on impacts, chapter 1 observed changes), and is member of the IPCC Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA)
