Influence of breeding sites on the bacterial microbiota, the vector competence and survival of the Aedes aegypti mosquito
The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the main vector for dengue (DENV) and Zika (ZIKV). It becomes urgent to develop new tools to reduce the transmission of these viruses to humans by the mosquito. One promising area concerns bacteria associated with mosquito vectors: the bacterial microbiota. The natural...
Metabolic adjustments in breeding female kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla) include changes in kidney metabolic intensity
International audience Black-legged kittiwakes (BLKIs) reduce selfmaintenance cost through reductions in mass-speciWc basal metabolic rate (BMR), body mass and the size of visceral organs during the chick-rearing period. In the present study, we measured kidney in vitro oxygen consumption and plasma...
Interannual variability of the South Pacific Convergence Zone and implications for tropical cyclone genesis
International audience The interannual variability of the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ) and its influence on tropical cyclone (TC) genesis in the South Pacific are investigated using observations and ERA40 reanalysis over the 1979-2002 period. In austral summer, the SPCZ displays four typica...
Cross resistance of Brassica spp. against vascular pathogens, Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. conglutians, Verticillium longisporum and Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris
[EN] Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans (FOC) is an important soil-borne fungus that causes vascular wilt disease in Brassica crops, resulting in severe losses in both yield and quality. However, crop rotation and fungicide application are not effective to manage this disease due to the difficul...
Changes in prolactin in a highly organohalogen contaminated Arctic top predator seabird, the glaucous gull
International audience The factors influencing prolactin (PRL) variation in birds and in wildlife in general have rarely been investigated with respect to the physiological impacts of exposure to environmental contaminants. We investigated the associations between circulating baseline PRL levels and...
Order, security and relief in mountains: Police and territory (nineteenth — 21st century)
What is being done by civil or military polices in the mountains? Since the 18th century, the missions of the upland police have shifted from security (violence, smuggling, migration controls, forest crimes) to security (risk prevention and relief). Due to their contrasting densities, the constraint...

Community-level Patterns in Boreal Riparian and Wetland Bird Assemblages
Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Abstract: Canada’s boreal forest is the breeding ground for some 288 species of resident and migratory birds. Approximately 65% of the species that are currently of highest conservation priority in the boreal region are associated with wetlands and riparian areas. Althou...
Estate-level decision-making and socioeconomics determine annual harvest in the European Turtle-dove in central Spain
Designing evidence-based policies that regulate harvest levels is essential to avoid unsustainable hunting. This requires a good understanding of the relationship between bag sizes and regulatory mechanisms of harvest, and particularly of how these mechanisms are implemented locally and how they var...
Enabling next level research on roots: Automatizing Minirhizotron Image Acquisition and Analysis (NextMR-IAA) for Research and Agricultural Management
International audience Non-invasive imaging technologies continue to rise in use; innovation of root and rhizosphere imaging devices has however not kept pace. The lack of automated, high-resolution root imaging and analysis hampers our scientific understanding and prevents application of minirhizot...

Prolactin stress response does not predict brood desertion in a polyandrous shorebird.
International audience One of the fundamental principles of the life-history theory is that parents need to balance their resources between current and future offspring. Deserting the dependent young is a radical life-history decision that saves resources for future reproduction but that may cause t...

Stereotypic behaviours and mating success in domestic mares
International audience Stereotypies are often associated with suboptimal environments. However, their adaptive significance remains under debate. The aim of this study was to relate the occurrence of stereotypies in breeding mares to their mating success. The overall, first and second cycle concepti...

STORY IN COMIC IN HISTORY RESEARCH ABOUT HISTORY FOR MATHEMATICS TEACHING (1990-2018)
This article aims to identify and describe researches about history for the teaching of mathematics, that combine history of mathematics to history in comics by means of breeding strategies of didactic proposals that connect to mathematical knowledge, in a playful manner, in promoting an improvement...
Keep Diversity––Make Standards! Spaces of Standardization for Diversity Analyzed through Cattle Breeding Industry
Standardization as spaces of diversity was introduced by Loconto and Demortain (2017) to advance the sociology of standards. Their analytical framework for studying standardization processes in interactive spaces is mobilized and expanded upon in this article in order to address the problematic rela...
Genetic diversity of the grapevine vector nematode Xiphinema index and application to optimize the resistance strategy
The ban of most nematicides renders urgent control alternatives against plant-parasitic nematodes and breeding for resistant plant varieties is promising. In vineyards, the nematode Xiphinema index has a high economical impact by transmitting Grapevine fanleaf virus (GFLV), the main virus of ‘Court-...

Nest-box design for the study of diurnal raptors and owls is still an overlooked point in ecological, evolutionary and conservation studies: a review
The use of artificial nest-boxes has led to significant progress in bird conservation and in our understanding of the functional and evolutionary ecology of free-ranging birds that exploit cavities for roosting and reproduction. Nest-boxes and their improved accessibility have made it easier to perf...

Sustainability of the food chain from field to plate: the case of the Mediterranean diet
Proceedings of the International Scientific Symposium : Biodiversity and Sustainable Diets United against Hunger, 2010/11/03-05, Rome (Italie) International audience The Mediterranean diet is considered as a paragon among the world's diets. The reference is the diet of Crete in the late 1960s. Is it...
