After four years during which only the spectacular light echo was showing continuous and rapid evolution while the central star was nearly constant, in autumn 2006 V838 Mon began a sequence of events which profoundly altered its spectroscopic and photometric behavior: (a) an eclipse of the B3V companion, characterized by the disappearance and reappearance of the B3V companion from optical spectra, and an eclipse-like lightcurve of ~70 day duration and Δ B ˜ 1.15 mag, Δ V ˜ 0.55 mag, Δ R[SUB]C[/SUB] ˜ 0.10 mag maximum depth; (b) a large increase in intensity of the [FeII] and FeII emission lines, and the appearance in emission for the first time since the 2002 outburst of Hα and higher Balmer series lines. While the [FeII] and FeII lines maintained a very sharp and unresolved profile, the Hα developed into a wide and structured profile, characterized by a sharp central reversal at the same velocity as one of the CO radio emission components. The disappearance of the B3V companion is equally well explained by a grazing eclipse from the outbursting L-type supergiant or by an eclipse from a dust cloud characterized by E[SUB]B-V[/SUB]=0.55 and R[SUB]V[/SUB]=3.1. We believe the flaring of the emission lines occurred at a similar time as the B3V eclipse just by chance.

Une attention particulière est consacrée au "flicker film" (notamment au travers d'une œuvre méconnue de Norman McLaren), ainsi qu'au film dont, paradoxalement, toute image aurait disparu (Gustav Deutsch). Chemin faisant, des connexions sont marquées avec certaines expérimentations menées dans le champ de la bande dessinée contemporaine et, en particulier, avec les travaux de l'OUBAPO (Ouvroir de Bande dessinée Potentielle - notamment les œuvres de François Ayroles et de Jochen Gerner).

The results of a search for eclipsing Am star binaries using photometry from the SuperWASP survey are presented. The light curves of 1742 Am stars fainter than V = 8.0 were analysed for the presence of eclipses. A total of 70 stars were found to exhibit eclipses, with 66 having sufficient observations to enable orbital periods to be determined and 28 of which are newly identified eclipsing systems. Also presented are spectroscopic orbits for 5 of the systems. The number of systems and the period distribution is found to be consistent with that identified in previous radial velocity surveys of "classical" Am stars. [less ▲]

The eco-efficiency concept of clean propulsion vehicles aims at is simultaneously reducing the fuel consumption and environment pollutants impact (Eco-score) without decreasing the vehicle performances and other user satisfaction criteria. Based on a simulation model in ADVISOR, one can evaluate the performances, the emissions and then the Ecoscore and the User Satisfaction for different driving scenarios. To establish a rationale methodology for conducting the eco-efficiency design of electric and hybrid vehicles, we adopt a multidisciplinary optimization approach while minimizing / maximizing both Ecoscore and User satisfaction objective functions. The proposed approach is then illustrated on the case study of the comparison of different mild parallel hybrid buses (hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and hybrid hydraulic vehicle (HHV) by highlighting the effect of different energy storage systems (batteries, ultra capacitors, hydraulic system), mechanical and electric components sizes upon the optimized hybrid design. The optimization results show that the hybrid electric buses using ultra capacitors have almost the same performances as those using batteries, while the HHV technology can compete with HEV because of the hydraulic components low cost and recyclability if possibly using of water as motor/pump fluid.

The electric vehicles (EV) and sometimes the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technologies are environmentally very efficient but can not succeed on the market because of a smaller ability to satisfy customer’s requirements. Comparison of clean technologies in automotive and transportation systems has been measured using different analysis tools such as LCA (life cycle analysis). However, these instruments never account for the user’s satisfaction which partly explains the market acceptance problems. The Eco efficiency is a global index which accounts for both environment impacts and user satisfaction. The main objective of vehicle powertrain hybridization is to improve the fuel consumption and environment pollutants impact (Eco-score) without decreasing the vehicle performances and other user satisfaction criteria. The objective of this study is to minimize the Eco-score indicator of HEV with respect to the user satisfaction criteria. The approach is formulated as a multidisciplinary optimization problem. At first the EV or HEV are modeled and simulated using ADVISOR (advanced vehicle simulator) with respect to several driving situations. Then emissions can be determined and the Ecoscore indicator can be calculated. User Satisfaction can be evaluated based on performance criteria extracted from ADVISOR simulation and on simple evaluation tools relying on the state-of-the art of technological information for safety, reliability and daily cost. In this study the design problem is stated as follows: select mechanical and electric components (like engine, motor and battery sizes) to minimize the Ecoscore indicator and to maximize user satisfaction criteria subject to catalogue constraints on the choice of the components. The approach is illustrated on applications dealing with parallel hybrid electric vehicles. [less ▲]

Eco-ethology as expressed in migration patterns, hybridisation level, growth rates in river conditions, and reproductive behaviour in a controlled environment were investigated in natural common bream Abramis brama × roach Rutilus rutilus and common bream × silver bream Blicca bjoerkna hybrids. From 2001 to 2003, hybrids and parental species were captured in a fish pass trap at the Lixhe dam on the Belgian Meuse River during their reproductive migration. The fish pass was checked 3 days a week and the water temperature was recorded hourly. The results showed that these hybrids were less frequent but they had migrated during the same period and in the same environmental conditions as the parental species. Scale readings showed that the growth of hybrids was intermediate between the two parent species’ growth. In controlled environments, the female hybrid mated with one to two males, including male hybrids, in reproductive experiments between hybrids; they also mated with male hybrid and male roach or male silver bream, but without the male common bream in reproductive experiments with hybrids mixed with parental species males, in a succession of spawning episodes recognised in parental species. Aggressive and territorial acts were observed among the males of these hybrids in a territory including a spawning substrate. This study has proven that these natural hybrids are eco-ethologically viable. For the management of fish populations and aquatic environments, the hybridisation process can be considered an indicator of habitat degradation. This degradation can then be interrupted by preserving spawning sites, controlling the restocking and species introduction, restoring habitats, and preserving the obstruction of fish migration.

the preference of adders for different linear elements of the ‘bocage’, a farmland landscape crisscrossed by hedges, was studied during 2.5 years in south-West Belgium. Most individuals occurred in South-facing woody hedges between the autumn and the beginning of spring. During the mating period, by contrast, most individuals tended to shift of habitat and favoured 1 to 2 m wide grassy hedges with a limited shrub cover and a north-south orientation. Mating females especially favoured this latter habitat, probably because of their specific micro-climatic conditions, including a higher insulation. A few individuals, however, remained in the same habitat all year round. The identification of individuals, which was performed on the basis of features including body and head color patterns, but not on individual clipping, proved to be difficult owing to the high density of individuals. Linear elements in the form of grassy hedges, not very space-consuming, can shelter very high densities of snakes. in the context of a sharp decrease of the bocage landscape, the conservation of common European vipers relies on the maintenance of such linear landscape elements as grassy and shrubby hedges, which can be enhanced by the implementation of recent measures aiming at restoring extensive agricultural systems.

The bonobo, Pan paniscus, an endemic primate of the DRC, forms with the chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes, the pair of species closest to humans. Classified as “Endangered” by the IUCN, it’s seriously threatened by the degradation of the forests. Only the creation of protected areas large enough and properly managed can improve its status but requires a good knowledge of the eco-ethology of the local populations. Our project will focus on studying a bonobo population recently discovered in the region of the Lake Tumba, in the west of the DRC. It is characterized by densities never encountered elsewhere, and a preliminary study has revealed significant differences in habitat and food resources in comparison to these of eastern populations. We will contribute to a recently established WWF conservation program by gathering eco-ethological data on bonobos, data that will allow identifying areas to protect, their boundaries and management measures to implement. To do this, we will study the diet of bonobos via direct and indirect observations of their behavior. We will also study the party size and its composition and identify underlying environmental factors. We will assess the bonobos’ home range size and pattern of displacement, which we will correlate with the abundance of food resources to determine whether there is a pattern of occupation of time and space specific to this population.
