The Sahel is affected by a severe drought since the late 1960s. This paper analyses the potential fluctuations of wind on a 44-year period (1951-1994) on the Atlantic coast of West Africa. The change in wind direction could be a witness of a modification on a synoptic scale. The wind velocity recorded in four meteorological stations does not show any rise which could be linked with a continuous aridification. [less ▲]

This report is the first of 2 papers that analyse data routinely collected in the maternity ward of Rutshuru (democratic Republic of Congo). The present work describes the evolution of caesarean section, maternal deaths and the associated risk factors. MATERIAL AND METHODOLOGY: Between 1980 and 1998, data on 13,042 deliveries were collected. Characteristics, mortality, morbidity of mothers and new-borns and obstetrical interventions were recorded. The statistical analyses applied included khi2, t-test, simple linear and multiple logistic regression. RESULTS: Fifteen percent had a caesarean section and 1.9% of women died. When referred to the expected births during the period, these numbers led to a ratio of 150 maternal deaths for 100,000 expected births and a ratio of caesarean section of 1.2%. At admission, 35% of the women presented at least one of the four risk factors used for reference. The proportion of women with at least one of the 4 risk factors went up from 26.1% to 39.5%. The proportion of caesarean sections went up from 1.9% to 34.1%. The proportion of maternal deaths remained constant except in 1988, 1994, 1995 and 1997. Three of the four reference factors, the Baudeloque diameter, parity and height were associated with caesarean section. Age only was associated with maternal death. Education and marital status were both associated with caesarean section and maternal death. CONCLUSION: This analysis shows high levels of maternal mortality and caesarean section. The authors recommend to analyse on a larger scale the value of the reference factors used in antenatal services and to standardise indications for the different obstetrical interventions. [less ▲]

This second paper aims at deriving useful information allowing to improve the strategy applied for maternal health care. MATERIAL AND METHODOLOGY: Between 1980 and 1998, data on 13,042 deliveries were collected. Characteristics, mortality, morbidity of mothers and new-born and obstetrical interventions were recorded. The present work describes the evolution of low birth weight (LBW), new-born deaths, and associated risk factors. The statistical analyses applied included khi2, t-test, and multiple logistic regression. RESULTS: Eighteen percent of new-born weights below 2.5 kg and 7.9% died. The proportion of low birth weights remains globally constant. Low proportions of new-born deaths were observed in 1981, 1982, 1988 and 1998. At admission, 35% of the women presented at least one of the four risks defined by the factors used for reference; this proportion went up from 26.1 to 39.2%. The four reference factors were associated with low birth weight. Baudelocque diameter and age were not associated with new-born death. Education and BMI were associated with an increased risk of new-born death. Marital status was not associated with any of the two outcomes. CONCLUSION: This analysis shows small variation of LBWs and perinatal deaths. It confirms the association between these two outcomes and most of the risk factors studied. The efficacy of the strategies implemented for improving perinatal health is questioned. The authors recommend that they be reassessed. [less ▲]

The first objective of this thesis was to analyze the evolution of Sudano-Sahelian African elephant populations in a context of environmental challenges and increasing human demography. The second objective was to propose solutions for elephant conservation in the Sudano-Sahelian context. To fulfill these objectives, aerial surveys have been carried out in every protected area harboring a known population of elephants. This work was first implemented at a local level on several study cases and finally at a global level. Results of aerial surveys estimate the current elephant number at minimum 7,745 elephants, about 2% of the African elephant total population. This confirmed that the elephant populations have been progressively fragmented and confined to few protected areas representing 5% of the Soudano-Sahelian strip. The long term (four decades) elephant population trends has been studied by comparing our results with the database of the study area. The half of the monitored population collapse during the last 40 years. The viability of small elephant population of 200 elephants and below is critical and several of them collapsed. Contrasted local situation have been observed : if a number depletion is often observed, in some protected areas elephant populations are stable or increasing. Although, trends of other large mammals’ population is not linked to that of the elephants. This result allow to conclude that the elephant is not a good indicator of the abundance of other large mammals’ population. Causes of elephant populations’ depletion are both due to climate change (global drought) and socio-economic (human demography and land use pressure) issues. An appropriate and permanent field management, a better valorisation of elephants and the creation of negotiated corridors with local people could garantee the future of Sudano-Sahelian African elephants.

Ce cours-conférence propose d'examiner l'origine et l'évolution des eucaryotes au travers de la biologie, la géologie et la paléontologie. Les eucaryotes forment un des trois domaines de la vie, et comprennent les animaux (dont les êtres humains), les plantes et les champignons, mais surtout une énorme majorité de protistes (eucaryotes unicellulaires) dont la diversité reste encore en partie à explorer. De grandes questions restent à élucider quant à l'origine du domaine Eucarya, sa position au sein de l'arbre de la vie, et les modalités et conditions de diversification et d'évolution depuis au moins 1,8 milliards d'années. La première leçon abordera l'origine de la cellule eucaryote, en discutant les différentes hypothèses existantes et la nature de LECA (Last Eucaryotic Common Ancestor). Comment tester ces hypothèses avec de nouvelles approches ? Comment révéler la diversité actuelle des eucaryotes encore en partie inexplorée et quelles réponses peut-elle apporter ? La seconde leçon présentera d'abord l'éclairage de la phylogénie moléculaire : comment utiliser les informations conservées dans le matériel génétique, pour mieux comprendre l'évolution des eucaryotes ? Quelles sont les possibilités et les limitations de la phylogénomique et des horloges moléculaires ? On présentera ensuite les informations enregistrées dans le registre fossile du Précambrien. Comment reconnaitre les eucaryotes fossiles, les étudier, et reconstruire leur évolution et diversification dans les conditions paléoenvironnementales depuis au moins 1,8 milliards d'années ? Ces deux leçons donneront donc un aperçu de l'état des connaissances, des nouvelles méthodes utilisées, et des grandes énigmes à résoudre à propos de notre domaine Eucarya. [less ▲]

In the framework of the STARE-CAPMED program we studied the impact of human activities on Posidonia oceanica meadows in Calvi Bay (Corsica, France). We mostly focused on the consequences of boats anchoring in Alga Bay. The map of the marine habitats realized during this study shows that P. oceanica meadows cover a surface of 4.94 km2 in 2010 and have declined of 26 % since 1997. Advances in the data acquisition techniques allow a better identification of the habitats and a map reliability improvement. In several places in the bay, especially near the waste waters rejection site, the lower limit of the meadow is shallower than in the past. The diminution of the meadow surface in the 21-30 m bathymetric section is more important in the Alga site than in the rest of Calvi Bay. The ecological state of the water surrounding the meadow in Alga was assessed as "good" with a PREI index of 0.685. However, big units anchoring in this area lead to the creation of dead “mattes” whose compactness are medium. In this area, the generation of dead mattes seems to favor the settlement of the invasive Chlorobionta Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea, of which anchoring is known to be one of the introduction vectors.
