Depuis quelques années se développent un peu partout des projets de sentiers nature, de réseaux de cheminements lents, de création de mares, de jardin au naturel, etc. Ils peuvent être regroupés sous le terme de maillage vert ou de réseau écologique. L'article souligne que pour que de tels projets aboutissent, ils supposent une interaction étroite entre réseaux naturels et réseaux humains. [less ▲]

The reaction between a reducing sugar and an amino group and their subsequent interactions is known as the Maillard reaction. This reaction is considered as the most important reaction in food chemistry. It results in the formation of odour, aroma and pigments which are characteristic of baked, roasted and broiled foods. It is also responsible for the formation of carcinogens and could also reduce the nutritionnal value of foods by decreasing the concentration of essential amino-acids. In vivo, it is involved in collagen degradation. The Maillard reaction could be divided into three main stages. Early Maillard reaction corresponds to the reversible formation of a glycosylamine and its Amadori or Heyns rearrangements. The second stage corresponds to the degradation of the Amadori and Heyns rearrangement products. It leads to the formation of odorant heterocyclic compounds. The third stage corresponds to the polymerization of the reactive intermediates of the advanced reaction. It leads to melanoidins production. Temperature, reaction time, moisture content, concentration and nature of the reactants are important factors which influence the Maillard reaction. The Maillard reaction could be involved in many industrial applications. [less ▲]

Previous studies have shown that female preferences for male pheromones depend on the female's reproductive condition and the dominance status of the male. However, it is unknown which olfactory system detects the odors that result in a preference for a dominant male. Therefore, in the present study, we asked whether dominant versus subordinate male urinary odors differentially activate the main and accessory olfactory systems in female (C57Bl/6j) mice by monitoring the induction of the immediate early gene, c-fos. A more robust induction of Fos was observed in female mice which had direct nasal contact with dominant male urinary odors in four specific segments of the accessory olfactory system, i.e., the posteroventral part of the medial amygdala, the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, the medial part of the preoptic nucleus and the ventrolateral part of the ventromedial hypothalamus, compared to females that were exposed to subordinate male urine. This greater activation of the accessory olfactory pathway by dominant male urine suggests that there are differences in the nonvolatile components of dominant versus subordinate male urine that are detected by the vomeronasal organ. By contrast, subordinate male urinary odors induced a greater activation in the piriform cortex which is part of the main olfactory system, suggesting that female mice discriminate between dominant and subordinate male urine using their main olfactory system as well.

In order to achieve some consistency in the establishment of groundwater intrinsic vulnerability maps in Europe. a new, approach is proposed by Working Group 1 of the European COST Action 620 on "Vulnerability mapping for the protection of carbonate (karst) aquifers". A general procedure is offered which provides consistency while allowing the required flexibility for application to a continent and under conditions of varying geology, scale, information availability, time, and resources. The proposed methodology is designed to be clearly more physically based than the existing vulnerability-mapping techniques. It takes the specificity of the karstic environments into account without necessarily excluding the applicability to other geological conditions. Combined "core factors" for overlying layers and for concentration of flow, account for the relative protection of groundwater from contamination while taking into account any bypass of the overlying layers. A precipitation factor is distinguished for describing: characteristics of the input of water to the system. Differentiation is made between groundwater resource intrinsic vulnerability Mapping and Source intrinsic vulnerability mapping. For the latter, a factor describing the karst network development is relevant. This short technical note describes a first stop in the work program of Working Group 1 of the COST Action 620. Future steps are now in progress to quantify the approach and to apply it in various European pilot areas. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical picture of hand atrophy related to a cervical rib or elongated C7 transverse process was well described in the modern literature by Gilliatt and Sumner; in 1970, they reported a series of nine patients whose motor status was stabilized following brachial plexus decompression. We report here seven patients suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), who developed hand atrophy, sometimes because of diagnostic delay. METHODS: The patient's charts were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS: The seven patients were all female; the mean age was 43 years. The first complaints were arm pain and paresthesias lasting six months to 5 years. Three patients were treated with C56/C67 discectomy plus disc prosthesis (one patient), ulnar neurolysis at the elbow (the same patient), carpal tunnel release (one patient), and intravenous immunoglobulins (one patient) before TOS diagnosis. Hand atrophy, severe in five patients, was present at presentation. All patients underwent brachial plexus decompression by the anterior (four), posterior (two), or transaxillary (one) approach. This last approach was completed 18 months later by brachial plexus neurolysis via the anterior approach. Postoperatively, motor deficit was improved in two patients and stabilized in five patients. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians' unfamiliarity with TOS diagnosis or their reluctance to accept the diagnosis without electrical confirmation can lead to hand atrophy. Brachial plexus decompression at this stage usually stabilizes the deficit. [less ▲]

The Tonle Sap Lake and its complex tributaries are the main water body and water courses of Cambodia. The catchment area of the lake is generally divided into twelve major sub-basins. The tributaries of the lake have great potential of water resources for agricultural and industrial development. The river networks and existing irrigation projects are not well surveyed. A survey trip was conducted around the lake. The aim of this trip is to understand the river networks and identify main existing irrigation systems in the sub-basins of the Tonle Sap Lake. In this poster, we are mainly focused on the existing irrigation schemes. The schemes are classified into five categories. (1) “Surface runoff collector”: it is formed by a small dike to collect surface runoff from upstream part. The water collected is used as a supplementary water source for rainy season cultivation and for irrigating a small area of dry season cultivation. (2) “Dam reservoir”: a dam is put in place on a river to store the river runoff during the rainy season and the water stored is supplied to a command area in the dry season. (3) “Indirect diversion”: it is characterized by a diversion structure and a storage reservoir. Water is diverted and stored in the reservoir during the rainy season and used for dry season cultivation. (4) “Direct diversion”: characteristic of this type is similar to that of the indirect diversion, except the river water is diverted directly to irrigated area without storing in a reservoir. (5) “Flood storage”: it is generally developed in the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake. A ring dike prevents floodwater from entering the reservoir and rainy season rice is grown inside the dike. After harvesting, the gates on the ring dike are opened to receive floodwater. The water is stored inside the dike for cultivating dry season rice outside the dike. This study found that there are only small-scale irrigation schemes developed around/in the Tonle Sap Lake. The water resources of this lake have not been effectively used. [less ▲]

The enzymatic glucose cleavage of palicoside revealed the biosynthetic pathway to akagerine, whereas the conversion of dolichantoside led to a new quaternary heteroyohimbine alkaloid named N(b)-methyl-21-beta-hydroxy-mayumbine. The hypothetical models of reactions occurring after the conversion of both substrates are proposed. Dolichantoside and palicoside, as well as Strychnos mellodora stem bark crude ethanol extract, exhibit significant antimycotic activity against human pathogens in presence of specific glucosidase.
