Secondary plant metabolites (allelochemicals) play a major role in plant-insect interactions. Glucosinolates (GLS) and their degradation products from Brassica species are attractants and feeding stimulants for Brassicaceae specialist insects but are generally repellent and toxic for generalist herbivores. The impact of these compounds on crucifer specialist insects are well known but their effect on generalist predators is still not well documented. Prey host plant influence on reproduction of an aphidophagous beneficial, the two spot ladybird, was determined using the cabbage aphid, Brevicoryne brassicae reared on a crucifer plant, namely Brassica napus containing low GLS levels. As ladybird developmental and reproductive parameters were already shown to be strongly affected by the allelochemical presence in its preys, the unsuitable aphid and host plant combination was only momentary used to feed the A. bipunctata adults. A strong impact of the diet was observed on the beetle fecundity and the emerging offspring. Changing B. brassicae aphid to a suitable prey slowly improved the temporary negative effect of the former diet. These results enhance the food environmental effect and the importance of tritrophic relations in pest management strategies by predators. Indeed, more than the choice of the beneficial species, the prey host plant has a major influence on the potential efficacy of biological agent to control herbivore species such as aphids. [less ▲]

This study consists in verifying the coherence of a few commonly used analysis methods of nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms. These methods were tested on model samples obtained by mechanically mixing two micro- and mesoporous solids respectively with known, mass proportions. Although the individual analysis methods may lead to discrepancies in the interpretation of the isotherms, their systematic comparison allows drawing a coherent picture of the porous texture.

When a biopsy is taken of a suspicious pigmented skin lesion, histological examination is expected to establish the definitive diagnosis. This study evaluated the inter-observer variation of 20 pathologists in the histological diagnosis of a randomly selected set of suspicious pigmented skin lesions (PSLs), by comparing their diagnoses to a reference diagnosis. Overall sensitivity for melanoma was 87%, ranging from 55% to 100% between the observers. Sensitivity was significantly lower for thin (Breslow thickness <1 mm) than for thick melanomas (83% versus 97%, p=0.005). Overall melanoma specificity was 94%, ranging from 83% to 100% between observers. Dysplastic naevus was the most important source of false-positive diagnoses, mainly in situ melanomas. Positive and negative predictive values in the given test set were 75% and 97%, respectively. In the case of melanoma, there was quite some variation in measured Breslow thickness. This would have led to a different therapeutic approach in 12% of the readings. Some of the variation seemed to be due to a different interpretation of the presence of a co-existent naevus. In 9% (3/35) of the readings, participants did not agree on the presence of ulceration. These results reflect a tendency to overdiagnose mainly thin melanomas in general histopathological practice. They also demonstrate variation in the assessment of major prognostic factors of melanoma. [less ▲]

The purpose of this study was to describe the computed tomographic (CT) features of nasal aspergillosis in dogs. Initial (n = 35) and follow-up (n = 12) CT images were available from 35 dogs. The most commonly encountered CT findings were (1) moderate to severe cavitary destruction of the turbinates with presence of a variable amount of abnormal soft tissue in the nasal passages, (2) non-specific thickening of the mucosa adjacent to the inner surface of bones of the frontal sinus, maxillary recess and nasal cavity and, (3) thickened reactive bone. The findings were consistent with a disease initially affecting one nasal cavity then progressing into the ipsilateral frontal sinus, the contralateral nasal cavity and the contralateral frontal sinus. Two dogs with associated nasal foreign body had a more localized invasion of the nasal cavity. Attenuation values and contrast enhancement were not specific. With follow-up examinations, a reduction in the amount of abnormal soft tissue was observed in all dogs except one, but this reduction could not be quantified. [less ▲]

The repair of concrete deck slabs or balcony needs a special composition of concrete and self-compacting concrete (SCS) is advantageously used for such repair operation in comparison with patch repair or gunite. Two compositions of concrete (classical and SCC concretes) and two repair mortars are tested according to a new testing procedure. The penetration of SCC beneath the concrete plate structure but also the adhesion to the old concrete substrate are analysed. The rheology of the material is measured by means of usual tests and rheometer. The different materials have been characterised through physical, chemical and mechanical test program. Two types of applications (vertical and horizontal) are presented and commented. Analysis of the interface between concrete substrate and SCC is given on the base of pull-off test and microscopical observations. [less ▲]

Lorsque les signaux embryonnaires de la gestation induisent une modification du côté maternel, une possibilité nouvelle s’ouvre aux chercheurs attentifs au développement de tests pour le diagnostic ou le suivi de la gestation. Dans ce chapitre, nous essayerons de passer en revue les différentes molécules dont le dosage ou la mise en évidence a fait l’objet de publications scientifiques en relation avec le diagnostic de la gestation. Dans la mesure du possible, nous envisagerons les différents marqueurs en suivant la chronologie de leur apparition au cours de la gestation, mais ce critère ne prendra pas un caractère absolu car souvent plusieurs molécules se recouvrent, ou encore leur apparition au niveau de placenta précède largement le moment où elles apparaissent dans le sang maternel en quantités mesurables. Nous essayerons également, de connecter chaque molécule avec l’application que son dosage permet dans la clinique vétérinaire. Pour terminer, nous ferons une description rétrospective de quelques cas cliniques bien documentés qui montrent l’importance de l’association du dosage de protéines associées à la gestation et de la progestérone pour arriver à une meilleure compréhension des échecs observés dans le déroulement de la gestation.

Crystals of Ba2FeO4 and Ba3FeO5, grown from a "self-sealing" KOH-Ba(OH)(2) flux, have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, Mossbauer spectroscopy, and magnetic measurements. Ba2FeO4 forms nonmerohedral twinned crystals with the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c, a = 6.034(2) Angstrom, b = 7.647(2) Angstrom, c = 10.162(3) Angstrom, beta = 92.931(6)degrees, and Z = 4. Ba3FeO5 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pnma, with a = 10.301(1) Angstrom, b = 8.151(1) Angstrom, c = 7.611(1) Angstrom, and Z = 4. While both compounds feature discrete FeO44- tetrahedra, the anion found in Ba2FeO4 has shorter Fe-O bonds and is significantly distorted relative to the Ba3FeO5 anion, An iron valence of 4+ was confirmed by magnet susceptibility measurements and by the low-temperature isomer shifts of -0.152 and -0.142 mm/s relative to alpha-iron for Ba2FeO4 and Ba3FeO5, respectively.
