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 ▲]

Landscape entropy represents heterogeneity within a landscape (Renyi, 1961; Bogaert et al., 2005). Previous researches found increasing values of entropy by studying a limited number of zones increasingly affected by anthropogenic effect (O’Neill et al., 1988; Bogaert et al., 2005). The present research aims to generalise the relationship between anthropogenic effect and landscape entropy, with a further goal of linking these concepts to overall biodiversity. 16 study zones from classified LANDSAT TM scenes and Africover maps presenting different anthropogenic effect intensities have been used (Djibu et al., 2008; Bamba et al., 2010; Barima et al., 2010; Munyemba, 2010; Vranken et al., 2011). Simpson's H diversity index based on class number has been used for entropy measurement (Renyi, 1961; Pielou, 1975; Shannon and Weaver, 1963). 1-H has been retained to get the relationship between the index and diversity directly proportional. For anthropogenic effect measurement, O’Neill’s U disturbance index, quotient between anthropogenic and natural areas, has been used (O’Neill et al., 1988). Log H has been retained to linearise the exponential relationship between the index and anthropogenic effect. Correlation between those variables has then been analysed. The scatter plot of the 16 study zones shows a Gaussian curve (Fig. 1) presenting maximal landscape entropy at intermediate anthropogenic effect. This distribution has been modelled by a second order polynomial regression with determination coefficient and significance. This phenomenon has been interpreted in terms of spatial transformation processes (Bogaert et al., 2004) and linked to the habitat heterogeneity hypothesis (Tews, 2004), as well as the intermediate disturbance hypothesis (Connell, 1978; Lindenmayer and Brugman, 2005).

As a consequence of anthropogenic pressure, landscapes change; deforestation is a well-known example of this type of human-driven landscape change. Landscapes change 42 from entirely natural to anthropogenic or cultural, in which landscape composition is marked by land covers and uses directly related to the civil society, such as degraded vegetations, agriculture, urban zones, or road networks. Landscape dynamics can be quantified by landscape pattern analysis. Many landscape metrics are available to capture the different features of pattern change. As a consequence of the pattern/process paradigm, the ecological consequences of the observed dynamics can be linked to ecosystem processes and characteristics, such as biodiversity. By means of a series of case studies linking field observations of fauna and flora with cartographic and demographic data, the importance of pattern analysis and landscape management is underlined, as well as the diversity in types of anthropogenic landscape change. Conclusions are drawn with regard to the ecological impact of landscape change. Guidelines are formulated for the characterization and analysis of anthropogenic effects in landscapes by means of pattern analysis. [less ▲]

The current research project aims to develop a generic set of analysis methods which enables to characterize quantitatively anthropogenic degradation of terrestrial ecosystems. This characterization will assist in landscape planning oriented towards a sustainable management of human impacts and towards a restoration of degraded ecosystems. The analysis methods will enable to detect landscape degradation and its anthropogenic drivers based on their spatial properties, a type of information that is less complex and less expensive to obtain than ecological data collected in situ. The project is composed of two parts: (1) methodological research and development, based on the principles of landscape ecology and combined with other disciplines like remote sensing, geographic information systems, sociology and agronomy; (2) application of the developed pattern metrics on new study cases for evaluation and validation. Using study cases of degradation situated worldwide, the development of a typology will enable to identify, classify and analyze the causes of degradation, their spatial properties and the ecosystems involved. These study cases will be chosen based on the types of ecosystems degraded, the spatial scale of degradation, the climatic zone, and the intensity and speed of landscape degradation. Every type will be analyzed with regard to its impact on spatial pattern. Afterwards, the different metrics will be evaluated statistically for comparison with regard to their potential to capture anthropogenic effects. The development of new metrics is hereby not excluded. Critical thresholds will be defined in order to detect critical degradation levels of the terrestrial ecosystems. The best metrics selected in this way will be calculated for new cases of anthropogenic impacts on landscapes, cases selected by application of the aforementioned typology, in order to validate the correlation between metric outcomes and in situ observations.
