Ekki or L. alata is a commercial timber species in Guinea-Congolian region considered vulnerable (IUCN, 2011). Indeed, its population structure shows a severe lack of regeneration in some rainforests (Palla et al., 2002). Moreover, in logging areas, insufficient knowledge about its ecological profile limits any reliable modeling of population dynamics on a long term. Consequently, original research, to improve its ecological characterization to ensure its sustainable management is conducted in moist evergreen forest in southern Cameroon. First results on population dynamics of this species show, in plots study of recruitment, a population without major deficit regeneration. On its silvicultural ability, although that estimated on plantations on parks under 2 years old, the trends of growth (ca 30 and 0.5 cm / year respectively in height and diameter) and mortality (3, 3% / year) suggest a positive perspective. Current work in relation to other topics of research should provide further insights into its ecological profile in the evergreen forests of Cameroon. [less ▲]

Recently, multiple-point statistics (MPS) introduced the training image (TI) concept to replace the variogram within an extended sequential simulation in order to describe more accurately multimodal distributions, with interconnected and curvilinear structures, such as those of alluvial plains. The role of the TI is to depict the conceptual geological patterns and it should be representative of the geological heterogeneity. MPS consists in extracting patterns from the training image, and anchoring them to subsurface data (e.g. well-log, seismic and production data). The construction of TI is one of the most critical and important step of MPS. Sedimentological studies may not be always available in a particular area. In this work, the alluvial aquifer of the Meuse river in the area of Liege is being investigated and there is few sedimentological data to build directly 3D conceptual model of the aquifer. In this context, we used general features of the Meuse river (slope, rate of flow, type of fluvial system) to select hydrofacies (based on a lithological classification in clay, sand and gravel) and their geometrical characteristics (channels and lobes of different sizes). Then several scenarios were built using these parameters to represent the uncertainty related to different possible geological scenarios. To verify the consistency of these TIs, a comparison with 2D electrical resistivity tomography data was carried out. 2D sections were randomly selected in the TIs and several cases were analyzed including the size of channels and lobes, the influence of surface resistivity in the results and the influence of the electrical resistivity of each facies. Forward and inverse electrical resistivity modelling was conducted on these synthetic models and the results were compared to field cases. The approach followed for the comparison is based on the calculation of a Euclidean distance between models and the visualization in a 2D or 3D space using multidimensional scaling (MDS). This technique allows verifying if field cases fall in the distribution represented by synthetic cases. In a second step, a cluster analysis was achieved on the MDS-map to provide a sensitivity analysis and to highlight which parameters were the most important for building training images. Then, the probability of each scenario was evaluated for the field cases using conditional probability. Conditional probability requires the calculation of the density function corresponding to the probability of the data given a geological scenario. This density function was obtained using a kernel density estimation technique based on the observations of the 2D MDS-map. Both the cluster analysis and the calculation of conditional probabilities for uncertain geological scenarios show that some parameters are not very sensitive (size of clay lenses, surface resistivity distribution) and that we can narrow the range of variations of some parameters (facies electrical resistivity values, gravel bodies size is more likely small, etc.). It shows that the investigation of the consistency of TI is an important step in each study including MPS. The next steps of the study are to generalize the analysis of the consistency of geological scenario with 3D geophysical data instead of 2D sections and to incorporate geophysical data as soft conditioning data for MPS simulations.

Analysis of meat expenditure by Belgian households in 2008. Meat expenditure by Belgian households during 2008 is analyzed. Expenditure is extracted from the Belgian Household Budget Survey at the FPS Economy, S.M.E.s, Self-employed and Energy. The database also provides sociodemographic information about the households participating in the survey. To explain the observed variability of the meat expenditure based on the explanatory factors available, an analysis of the covariance is performed. The three quantitative factors have a bigger effect on the meat expenditure than the three other qualitative factors. The proportion of meat expenditure variability explained by the explanatory factors of the selected model is 31,41%. [less ▲]

Les populations occidentales actuelles accordent de plus en plus d’importance à leur alimentation. Mais Il ne s’agit plus seulement d’intérêts organoleptiques ou hédonistes. Les consommateurs d’aujourd’hui sont plus que jamais attentifs au caractère nutritionnel de ce qui se trouve dans leur assiette. Preuve en est le nombre sans cesse croissant d’alicaments et d’allégations nutritionnelles et de santé qui apparaissant sur le marché. Autre exemple, la tendance graduelle de la part des entreprises agro-alimentaires de « décortiquer » un produit en ses différents nutriments essentiels, tels les protéines, les lipides, les sucres ou encore les fibres. Il est aussi de plus en courant d’y associer le pourcentage de l’apport quotidien recommandé contenu dans le produit. De nos jours, même l’importance des vitamines et des minéraux majeurs (Na, Ca, P, etc.) est ancrée dans les mentalités. Il y a cependant une catégorie de nutriments encore quelque peu délaissée : les oligoéléments. Les oligoéléments sont des éléments chimiques présents en très faibles quantités dans l’organisme mais dont le rôle est essentiel. Les plus connus sont l’iode, le fer, le cuivre le zinc ou encore le manganèse. D’autre par contre sont moins connus mais sont tout aussi indispensables (parfois en plus faible quantités encore) comme le molybdène, le nickel, le chrome, le cobalt et beaucoup d’autres. Les rôles de ces éléments sont aussi diverses qu’indispensables et on les retrouves dans des enzymes et cofacteurs (souvent dans le site actif), dans des hormones, mais ils peuvent aussi jouer un rôle structural (exemple du fluor dans l’hydroxyapatite). Parfois il n’y a qu’un pas à franchir entre oligoélément et élément toxique. C’est par exemple le cas de l’aluminium et de l’arsenic, qui sont nécessaires en petites quantités mais peuvent devenir des poisons (mortels) s’ils sont ingérés à plus forte dose. [less ▲]

Quand les productions animales deviennent positives pour la santé humaine… Vache folle, dioxine, toxi-infections alimentaires, maladies cardiovasculaires… Le secteur de l'élevage est depuis plusieurs années décrié et victime d’une forme de phobie. Mais ces craintes véhiculées par les produits issus de l’élevage sont-elles toujours fondées ? Comment la recherche peut-elle œuvrer pour rendre les produits animaux plus sûrs sur le plan sanitaire ? Nous verrons comment l’œuf de poule, régulièrement associé aux toxi-infections alimentaires, pourrait bien devenir dans le futur un alicament, sérieux allié pour lutter contre les infections animales et humaines.

A facile and green approach is developed to impart remarkable protection against corrosion to galvanized steel. A protecting multilayer film is formed by alternating the deposition of a polycation bearing catechol groups, used as corrosion inhibitors, with clay that induces barrier properties. This coating does not affect the esthetical aspect of the surface and does not release any toxic molecules in the environment. [less ▲]
