Behavioural bioloigists find it difficult to explain the evolution of cooperation among non kin from a strict natural selection point of view. Rather than questionning the paradigm itself, even though it only involves a part of the theroy of evolution, they add variables to the theory as, for example, the fact that cheaters will be found out and punished. By contrast, on the basis of the studies of cooperation among primates, and in terms of the resonses of monkeys in the tests to which they are subjected, I stress how difficult it is to study cooperation among primates outiside the social and emotional context which, in turn, it serves to define. Finally, I prpose that primatology should be open to social science approaches, so that it considers monkeys and apes as actors in interactions rather than as organisms simply carrying out strategis which have been inscribed in them by evolution.

During the last few years, several piano key weirs (PKWs) have been built in France by Electricité de France (EDF). Thanks to the reduced footprint and high release capacities of this new type of weir, making it particularly suited for concrete dams rehabilitation, lots of other projects in varied countries are under construction or study. The prototype use of PKW requires knowledge about its structural behaviour, hydraulic capacities as well as integration into dams’ environment. This paper aims at presenting numerical and physical modelling works performed at the University of Liege to address the last two points. In particular, large scale physical modelling and parametric scale models enabled to understand the hydraulic behaviour of the structure and to highlight its main geometric parameters as well as their best variation interval depending on various criteria related to the weir design (discharge efficiency, cost…). A 1D numerical model has also been developed based on these experimental investigations. It enables to predict in a few minutes, with 10% accuracy, the discharge capacity of a given PKW geometry on its usual operation head range. This model, available as a freeware on http://www.pk-weirs.ulg.ac.be, constitutes a key tool for the first design of such weirs. Finally, the scale model studies of major projects such as Raviège dam (France) for EDF and Ouldjet Mellegue Project (Algeria) for Coyne et Bellier – Tractebel Engineering enable to confront theoretical predictions with experimental results and to address the problem of PKW integration on dam crests.

Background This study aimed at assessing factors associated to the duration of sickness absence after a back injury in the Belgian working population, with a special emphasis on cultural factors. Methods The data were retrieved from the Belgian Fund for Work Accidents database over a three-year period (2001-2003). The population source involved all Belgian workers under a job contract in the private sector registered as compensated cases for an accident that occurred at the workplace (n=558276). From that database, all back injury cases involving a complete data set and registered during the first 6 months of each year (n= 11262) were selected and eight factors (gender, age, seniority in the current job, job category, accident regional location, enterprise size, sector of activity and accident circumstances) were analyzed in relation to the outcome variable, sick leave duration recorded as ordered time intervals between 0 day and 183-366 days. Results Sick leave duration was strongly associated in a multivariate model to age (>= 40 years: OR=2.18), blue collar job (1.55), work in building industry (1.32) and enterprise size (>100 : 0.85), and to a less extent to seniority (>10y: 0.88), and circumstance of accident (falls: 1.26). Injuries occurring in the French-speaking part of the country were associated to a longer sick leave (1.07; p=0.034). Conclusions This study shows that besides well-known risk factors, subtle cultural language-linked factors and/or regional differences in economic climate may significantly influence the length of disability period after a back injury.

Présentée comme un instrument clé de la compétitivité régionale depuis la fi n des années nonante, la recherche est l’objet de nombreuses initiatives politiques nationales et européennes. Notamment produite au sein des universités, elle est censée contribuer à la compétitivité de l’Europe sur la scène mondiale et libérer le potentiel d’innovation européen. La note Marcourt propose un renouveau partiel des formes de gouvernance des politiques de recherche en Communauté française qui s’inscrit dans les réformes préconisées par les autorités européennes pour créer l’espace européen de la recherche avec le risque d’un découplage entre recherche et enseignement. Sans compter que ce projet ne dit rien sur le partage des ressources entre équipes universitaires. [less ▲]

Geographic profiling is a methodology used to delineate a prior search area for a serial offender. Two new hypotheses integrating recent researches on offender’s behaviour are proposed to broaden the applicability of the techniques of geographic profiling to commuters and irregular patterns of crimes. The journeysto- crime variance and place attractiveness will be successively integrated in GP methods. In order to evaluate the variance of the journeys-to-crime on real road network, a method based on least square adjustment in raster mode is developed. A real case of serial rapes illustrates the effectiveness of those assumptions for a non-uniform pattern of crimes. [less ▲]

Alopecurus myosuroides Huds. (vulpin des champs) a toujours été une préoccupation majeure pour les céréaliculteurs et le développement de la résistance aux herbicides n’améliore pas la situation. Cet article de synthèse résume les différents critères impliqués dans les modèles de dispersion d’individus de vulpin des champs au sein d’un champ ou d’une population sensible. Pour ce faire, le cycle complet du vulpin est décrit de la semence à la semence. Depuis le développement végétatif précoce jusqu’à la chute de la graine, chaque étape est décrite en prenant en compte comment la résistance aux herbicides peut influencer ou exercer un impact différent par rapport à des plantes sensibles.
