Structural and thermodynamic applications of entropy related to spatial heterogeneity under growing anthropogenic pressure have been examined. 16 zones from classified LANDSAT TM scenes presenting different anthropogenic effect intensities have been used. Anthropogenic effects, compositional and configurational entropy have been measured. The scatter plot shows bell curves with maximal entropy at intermediate anthropogenic effects. Distinction of natural and anthropogenic classes shows opposed tendencies according to class and compositional/configurational type. These results have been interpreted as spatial transformation processes, energy production and release, and linked to the habitat heterogeneity and intermediate disturbance hypotheses. [less ▲]

Remote sensing image interpretation and classification require a clear definition of what is considered as a rural, a periurban, a suburban or an urban area. Such a definition is also essential in order to compare results of studies in periurban zones. Different terms, definitions and characteristics relating to these four concepts have been reviewed in the literature and compared according to different criteria like their type, citation frequency, strenghts and weaknesses, in the scope of a landscape evolution analysis.

Cet article constitue une synthèse sur la forêt de tapia (Uapaca bojeri Baill.) de Madagascar en vue de présenter son importance dans le développement de la communauté riveraine via l’amélioration des revenus par ménage. La forêt de tapia est une formation « socio-naturelle », à strate arborée quasi monospécifique et endémique de Madagascar. Elle est localisée uniquement dans les hautes terres malgaches. À part les fonctions écosystémiques, la forêt de tapia abrite différentes ressources naturelles, entre autres les produits forestiers non ligneux et ligneux, qui jouent un rôle important dans l’économie locale informelle. Toutefois, cette formation végétale est menacée par la destruction humaine à travers les feux de brousse, la production de bois de chauffe et de charbon de bois, l’extension de l’agriculture et l’envahissement par des espèces exotiques de reboisement. Subséquemment, la gestion durable et la protection de cette forêt sont essentielles afin que les populations riveraines puissent en profiter de génération en génération [less ▲]

Borocera cajani (Lepidoptera, Lasiocampidae), also named Landibe, is main wild silk moth currently used to produce silk textiles in Madagascar. Silk production involve many member of the local population, from the wild silk harvesters, to the spinners, traders, dyers, weavers and the artisans who transform the silk into clothing, accessories and decorative items. Uapaca bojeri (Tapia) forests are the last remnants of highland primary forest, which are threatened by human destruction through bush fires, firewood collection and charcoal production. Uapaca bojeri forest in the highland shelters wild Malagasy silkworms Borocera cajani and is the main host plant of this Lepidoptera species. Both this tree and Borocera cajani are endemic of Madagascar. Due to other-harvest of pupae and destruction of nature forest, wild silk production in those early sites has largely disappeared. Studing Borocera cajani’s biology and revitalize its silk constitute a way to conserve them [less ▲]
