La culture d’amandier joue un rôle socio-économique important dans plusieurs zones rural du Maroc oriental. Le projet de Filière Amandier (*PROFAO) porte sur l’extension des surfaces plantées d’amandier avec création des nouveaux vergers et des nouvelles unités de concassage des amandes et de valorisation des dérivées d’amandes. En termes de profil variétal les principales variétés plantés dans le cadre du projet PROFAO sont Beldi (Be) Marcona (Mr), et Fournat (Fr) et l’association Ferragnes / Ferraduel (F/F). Le présent travail de recherche appliquée s’intéresse aux possibilités et moyens de valorisation en poste récolte des fruits d’amande et leurs dérivées (Huile d’amande et Tourteau) au niveau des coopératives de la région orientale du Maroc. La récolte des amandes se fait encore par Gaulage, par contre l’extraction des « amandons » de leurs coques, est facilitée par des machines de concassage. Les brisures issues du concassage sont valorisées sous forme d’huile d’amande. Les rendements en huile varient entre un minimum de 51% pour Be et un maximum de 56,6% pour l’association F/F. Le profil en acides gras (AG) se distingue par sa richesse en AG insaturés (principalement des deux AG: Oléique et Linoléique) et une teneur en AG saturés ne dépassant pas les 10%. Ces huiles de brisures d’amandes grâce à leurs teneurs en antioxydant naturels t (Tocophérols), et selon les tests au rancimat présentent de bons indices de stabilité oxydative (OSI) qui varient entre minimum pour l’huile Fr (OSIFr = 20h) et un maximum pour l’huile F/F (OSIF/F= 27h) [less ▲]

Olive oil becomes the object of a considerable amount of research. There are numerous data on chemical-physical characteristics and olive oils quality, of various origins from different world's production areas, particularly Mediterranean countries. Paradoxically, very few data, on olive oil produced in the eastern Morocco. In this region, olive oil production is considered as an ancient activity, where old olive groves can still be observed, but recently monovarietal groves seem to be increasing and the olive cultivation is being improved by renewing old trees, reducing the association with other crops, selecting the olive varieties suited to local agro-climates and planting new single variety orchards. The aim is extension of olive grove surface areas and improvement of olive oil quality (according to the great *Morocco’s green plan) and this is leading to an increase in the prevalence of monovarietal olive oils. Thus the monovarietal oils produced from the ‘Arbequina’, ‘Arbosana’ and ‘Koroneiki’ varieties, which have recently been introduced under intensive cultivation in the eastern Morocco, underwent physico–chemical characterization to determine quality criteria, natural antioxidant content, fatty acid composition and triacylglycerol profile. The Rancimat test was performed to assess the oxidative stability of these monovarietal oils and their blends to determine the storage stability and the best shelf life of the blends. [less ▲]

The production of almond's kernel has increased continually in eastern Morocco, from 136 000 T in 2012 to 183000 T in 2015. To valorize this kernel, we have analyzed chemical composition of five varieties, which were determined as Marcona, Fournat, Ferragnes, Ferraduel and Beldi. Total sugar was ranged between 6,2086 for Marcona and 8,5462 % for Fournat. Total protein was changed from 19,4167 for Ferragnes Ferradul to 22,261 % for Beldi. Total fiber was varied from 15,4197 for Marcona to 18,150 % for Beldi. Ashes was ranged between 2,9079 for Marcona and 3,5606 % for Beldi. Oil content was changed between 51,4741 for Beldi and 56,5688 % for Ferragnes Ferraduel. This large oil content requires us to determine the characteristics of this almond oil. Fatty acid profile was identified, and Oleic acid, Linoleic acid, Palmitic acid and Stearic acid were ranged from 60,76 for Marcona to 69,306 % for Ferragnes Ferraduel, between 20,545 for Ferragnes Ferraduel and 27,45 % for Marcona, between 7,0692 for Ferragnes Ferraduel and 8,010 for Marcona and from 2,009 for Beldi to 2,743 for Marcona, respectively. After all, oxidative stability was mesured to know which oil bears more, and we have concluded that Ferragnes Ferraduel tolerates more of them all. [less ▲]

L’accent a été mis particulièrement sur la teneur en antioxydants naturels en relation avec la stabilité oxydative des huiles donc leur aptitude au stockage. L’huile de la variété Arbequina, qui est de plus en plus plantée dans les vergers marocains en mode intensif, a présenté des indices de stabilité faibles. Par conséquent pour sa valorisation, différents assemblages de cette huile avec d’autres huiles, connues pour leur qualité supérieure en termes de stabilité, critères organoleptiques et richesse en antioxydants naturels, ont été réalisés et analysées.

In the actual context, biopesticides have emerged as a main alternative to conventional agriculture1. Hence, elicitors are metabolites naturally produced by microorganisms, pathogenic or not, and plants which are able to induce the natural resistance of plants. Also, they have proved to be excellent candidates for biological control. In this context, the lipoxygenase pathway leads to the formation of fatty acid degradation products, called oxylipins, which appear to be crucial agents in plant defence mechanisms2,3. Moreover, with their broad spectrum of action and their possible inducibility, oxylipins appear to be promising candidates for their use as elicitors4. This work focuses on two hydroperoxy-derived oxylipins, the 13(S)-hydroperoxy-octadecadienoic acid (13-HPOD) and the 13(S)-hydroperoxy-octadecatrienoic acid (13-HPOT). The study of the interaction of such compounds with representative plant plasma membrane lipids is essential to understand plant resistance mechanisms. Several in silico and experimental techniques of biophysics showed that acyl-hydroperoxides have significant adsorption capacity and a strong affinity for model membranes. They may also penetrate biological membrane but no permeabilisation effect was observed in this work. Slight conformational differences seem to have a significant impact on their ability to interact with plant plasma membranes. Based on these results, further investigation of the interactions of fatty acids hydroperoxides, even more on the 9-forms, with plant plasma membranes and eventually in the presence of phytopathogenic species, would allow a better understanding of the innate immunity and, on the longer term, could lead to the development of new elicitors with biological mechanisms potentially independent of membrane protein receptors.

Banana fruit (Musa sp.) ranks fourth in term of worldwide production, and has economical and nutritional key values. Cavendish is the popular and most dominant variety of the dessert banana group. Nowadays, it is endangered by the emergent race of the Panama disease, caused by Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense TR4 (Foc TR4). Despite the importance of the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are secondary metabolites with a high vapour pressure, and their role in plant protection, they have never been documented as a way to manage this disease on Cavendish. Thus, the aim of this PhD thesis is to study the VOCs in the specific interaction Cavendish/Foc TR4, as a way to manage this threat. Based on the work previously done with other plants at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, a protocol was optimized for the extraction of the banana plant’s VOCs. In parallel, models of in-vitro and in-vivo inoculations are under development to distinguish the VOCs emitted by the root zone and those emitted by the aerial part of the plant. The results of the first analysis showed that the majority of the Cavendish VOCs belongs to the terpenes group, as well as ketones and an organic ester. The VOCs specifically emitted during the plant-pathogen interaction will be studied more in depth by evaluating their effect on the plant and the pathogen. At long term, and depending on the results, agro-ecological applications of this knowledge could include breeding for new variety or combining banana with other plants expressing VOCs against Foc TR4, applying VOCs on field to stimulate plant defences or to contain the pathogen.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a class of persistant organic compounds of major concern that tend to accumulate in the environment, damaging ecosystems and health. Brownfields represent an important tank for PAHs that require remediation. As an alternative to environmentally aggressive, expensive and often disruptive soil remediation strategies, experiences have been carried on to understand and develop techniques based on bioremediation and phytoremediation. PAHs degradation experiments were conducted in microcosms (laboratory scale) in order to determine whether several plant-derived amendments could enhance bioremediation. Briefly, samples of aged contaminated soils were treated with different concentrations of Medicago sativa or Trifolium pratense root exudates or dried roots, commercial saponin, a natural surfactant found in some plant roots such as some Fabaceae, and some samples were left unamended as controls. Soil samples were incubated for two and four weeks at controlled temperature (28°C). Carbon dioxide emission was monitored throughout the whole incubation. At the end of each experiment, dehydrogenase activity was measured as an indicator of microbiological activity and residual PAHs were determined using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography with Fluorimetric Detection (HPLC-FLD). In total, eleven amendment modalities and two incubation periods were tested and repeated four times. Preliminary experiments show promising results as amended samples seem to show different respiration activities. Ongoing studies will allow discussion as to whether or not PAHs degradation is influenced by the different modalities and if there are any differences according to the nature and concentration of the amendment.

In Wallonia, there are 6,000 estimated brownfields (rising to over 3.5 million in Europe) that require remediation. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a class of recalcitrant carcinogenic/mutagenic organic compounds of major concern as they accumulate in the environment and represent 17% of all encountered pollutants. As an alternative to environmentally aggressive, expensive and often disruptive soil remediation strategies, a lot of research has been directed to developing techniques targeting organic pollutants. The following experiment, based on the observation that PAHs soil content decreases in the presence of plants, aimed at improving our understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in phytoremediation. It focusses on plant root exudates and whether they improve PAHs solubilization, which would make them more available for bioremediation by soil microorganisms. The effect of saponin, a natural surfactant found in some plant roots such as members of the Fabaceae family, on PAHs solubilization was also investigated as part of the implementation of the experimental protocol. The experiments were conducted on soil collected from a brownfield in Saint-Ghislain (Belgium) and presenting weathered PAHs contamination. Samples of soil were extracted with different solutions containing either plant root exudates or commercial saponin. Extracted PAHs were determined in the different aqueous solutions using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography and Fluorimetric Detection (HPLC-FLD). Both root exudates of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) or red clover (Trifoliumpratense L.) and commercial saponin were tested in different concentrations. Distilled water was used as a control. First of all, results show that PAHs are more extracted using saponin solutions than distilled water and that the amounts generally rise with the saponin concentration. However, the amount of each extracted compound diminishes as its molecular weight rises. Also, it appears that passed a certain surfactant concentration, PAHs are less extracted. This suggests that saponin might be investigated as a washing agent in polluted soil remediation techniques, either for ex situ or in situ treatments, as an alternative to synthetic surfactants. On the other hand, preliminary results on experiments using plant root exudates also show differences in PAHs solubilization compared to the control solution. Further results will allow discussion as to whether or not there are differences according to the exudates provenance and concentrations. [less ▲]

Dans un contexte marqué par l’arrivée d’une génération pour laquelle les technologies, les réseaux sociaux et les jeux en ligne relèvent de l’évidence (Stein, 2013; Weiler, 2004), le jeu a souvent été qualifié de véhicule d’une pédagogie rendant l’étudiant acteur de son apprentissage, conférant une dimension de défi aux activités éducatives et générant une motivation intrinsèque (Foster, 2008; Kang & Tan, 2008; McFarlane et al., 2002; Mitchell & Savill-Smith, 2004; Papastergiou, 2009). Ce potentiel éducatif du jeu a cependant été souvent associé à des jeux immersifs (de Freitas, 2006) requérant la mise en œuvre d’une trame narrative et dont le développement peut s’avérer couteux. L’utilisation de mini-jeux est considérée comme une solution alternative à ces « serious games » complexes car ils permettent d’enseigner un grand nombre de concepts tout en générant de faibles coûts de développement (Illanas, Gallego, Satorre, & Llorens, 2008). Ceux-ci présentent des règles basiques, sont faciles à jouer et conçus comme objets d’apprentissage de sorte qu’il soit aisé pour l’étudiant de percevoir les informations essentielles et que leur pratique soit bénéfique pour l’apprentissage (Frazer, Argles, & Wills, 2007). La gamification, à savoir la transposition des principes issus de l’univers du jeu au domaine de l’éducation (Deterding, Dixon, Khaled, & Nacke, 2011), ne porte donc pas ici sur des jeux de simulation immersifs mais vise plus réalistement la transposition à des activités d’apprentissage d’un certain nombre de principes et de leviers à l’œuvre dans des mini-jeux populaires tel que Candy Crush. La question de recherche qui a guidé l’expérience décrite ci-après concerne l’évaluation du potentiel pédagogique de l’utilisation d’un mini-jeu de ce type dans un cours de chimie générale en complément des supports pédagogiques plus classiquement utilisés en première année d’université. Concrètement, ce mini-jeu appelé « Atomica » se présente comme un quiz d’entrainement portant sur un chapitre réputé difficile du cours, l’atomistique. Ce quiz a fait l’objet de quatre versions activant chacune un nombre croissant d’éléments de gamification (indiqués en gras) décrits par plusieurs auteurs comme étant les « ingrédients » ou « building blocks » d’un bon jeu (Bunchball Inc., 2010; Dignan, 2011; Reeves & Read, 2013) : - La version contrôle du QCM se présente comme similaire aux évaluations formatives couramment utilisées à l’université ; - La version 1 segmente le QCM en six niveaux de difficulté ; - La version 2 ajoute un feedback automatisé aux niveaux de difficulté ; - La version 3 présente une version maximaliste de la gamification puisque, aux éléments précédents, elle ajoute un compte à rebours, des indices dont l’appel engendre une perte de points, un classement des meilleurs joueurs et un indicateur social (possibilité de se situer par rapport à la communauté de joueurs). Ce choix d’un dispositif graduel se justifie notamment par l’intérêt pour la détection d’un seuil à partir duquel l’ajout d’éléments de gamification fait basculer la perception d’un quiz habituel vers un artefact relevant du mini-jeu et générant ainsi un état de flow chez le joueur. Chaque version a été soumise à un groupe d’une trentaine d’étudiants, selon une procédure expérimentale contrôlée, avec pour objectif la collecte de données (en cours) sur : - L’état de flow ou expérience optimale engendré par chacune des versions (orientation comparative) défini comme un état subjectif de bien-être (Csikszentmihalyi, 1990) engendrant une immersion totale dans l’activité. Afin de mesurer le flow, une échelle spécifique aux jeux éducatifs (EGameFlow) développée en 2009 (Fu, Su, & Yu, 2009) a été utilisée dans le cadre de cette étude. - Une des trois composantes du modèle de la dynamique motivationnelle de Viau, la perception du sentiment de compétence (Bandura, 1993; Pajares, 2014) considéré comme un moteur essentiel à l’apprentissage et un déterminant de l’intérêt pour une discipline scolaire. - La performance à un test de connaissance soumis aux étudiants avant et après l’expérience de jeu. Les motivations sous-tendant le processus d’exploration des mini-jeux sont à chercher du côté d’un certain discours pédagogique qui prône l’inscription d’une dimension ludique dans les apprentissages en enseignement supérieur. Nourrie par ses résultats expérimentaux, la communication proposera un retour réflexif plus général sur la valeur, les limitations et les conditions de réalisation de ce discours. [less ▲]

This study’s main aim is to identify plant species showing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin whitening properties. A selection of 89 samples from previous infield studies on the traditional uses of plants in Mayotte were analyzed. The anti-oxidant activity was assessed using the α, α-diphenyl-β-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method developed by Blois [1]. The anti-inflammatory activity and the skin whitening activity were both assessed through the study of inhibition kinetics from specific enzymes: respectively, lipoxygenase (EC 1.13.11.12) due to its important role in the leukotriene pathway and tyrosinase (EC. 1.14.18.1) as it takes part in the melanogenesis pathway. The IC 50 value for each sample and for each activity was obtained using UV/Vis spectrophotometric technics. These IC 50 were then compared with the ones obtained from known molecules found in the literature: namely, (±)-6-Hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchromane-2-carboxylic acid (IC50 = 4,388 µM) for the anti-oxidant activity, nordihydroguaiaretic acid (IC50 = 3,5µM) for the anti-inflammatory activity and kojic acid (IC50 = 722 µM) for the anti-tyrosinase activity. The most effective anti-oxidant activity was observed in fresh leaves from Acalypha wilkesiana Müll.Arg. (IC50 = 0,381 g/L) and Leea guineensis G. Don. (IC50 = 0,225 g/L) as well as in dried roots from Litchi chinensis Sonn. (IC50 = 0,346 g/L). All results are expressed in grams of fresh matter. According to the preliminary tests for the-anti-inflammatory and skin whitening activities, the crude extracts from Kalanchoe pinnata Lam. Pers., Litchi chinensis Sonn., Zingiber zerumbet (L.) Sm., Leea guineensis G. Don. and Paullinia pinnata L. are likely to show promising activities. [less ▲]
