The paper presents an original method dealing with the forest site types delineation. The suggested method consists in integrating a typological key in a GIS aiming at producing a thematic map that describes forest site types. Data used are the soil map of Belgium (digitized at the scale 1:20,000) and a digital elevation model built from a topographic map (scale 1:10,000). The typological key is mainly based on the methodology used by Thill et al. (1988) in the site types system for central Ardenne, the potential vegetation map of Sougnez and Dethioux (1975) and the ecoregion map of Delvaux and Galoux (1962). In that respect, site types are closely linked to the soil map and the phytosociological classification. So, they can be connected to the afforestation guide and different phytosociological and autecological studies concerning forest species. It is then possible to map the potential habitats or the site potentialities related to tree species. The key is valid for the Ardenne ecoregion located in Southern Belgium (elevation higher than 300 m). It has to be validated through an intensive use in the field, taking into account its imprecision linked to the types of collected data, chieffly those being digitized. The integration of such a tool in a SIG can be considered as an original way in terms of integrated forest management or forest sites description in the context of the project “Natura 2000” launched by the European Union. The study has been carried out within the framework of an experimental integrated management project concerning the Saint-Hubert forest (17,000 ha). [less ▲]

Jatropha curcas L. est considéré comme une source potentielle non-comestible pour la production de biocarburants (Sujatha et al, 2005). Sa multiplication par semis présente l’inconvénient de cultiver au champ des plantes hétérogènes, dont les graines présentent des contenus en huile qui varie de 4-40% (Heller, 1996). La présente étude vise la mise au point d’un protocole de multiplication massale de plantes élites à partir d’explants nodaux cultivés en conditions axéniques. [less ▲]

Jatropha curcas L. is a wild plant, that emerged as a source of energy for biodiesel production. It has acquired significant economic potential as it does not compete with the edible oil supplies. Realizing its importance, in vitro multiplication methods have been established to meet the demand of large scale supply of superior clones. In order to improve the in vitro multiplication rate (number of shoots/explant/subculture/three weeks) of J. curcas, axillary nodes taken from young plants of two accessions (originating from Cameroon and Senegal) have been cultivated for three weeks on a Murashige and Skoog (1962) medium (MS) supplemented with 8.87 µM BAP, 4.92 µM IBA, and 30 g/l sucrose at pH 5.7±0.1, and solidified with 0.7% agar. The shoots obtained from each original explant were then transferred to a multiplication media consisting of MS medium supplemented with 2.21 to 8.9 μM BA or 2.21 to 8.9 μM kinetin in combination with 2.46 μM IBA. Each combination was completed with 12.2 mg.l-1 adenine sulfate and 25 mg.l-1 of glutamine. The best multiplication rate was obtained for the PM medium containing 6.65 μM BA and 2.46 μM IBA. The mean multiplication rate is 8.1 shoots per explant during the 7 following subcultures. Leafy shoots obtained have been rooted in a medium containing half of the major mineral and minor mineral components of MS supplemented with 5.7 μM IBA, then acclimated with a survival rate of 97%. With the aim of finding a more efficient production protocol practicable on a large-scale, an alternative method has been developed to regenerate whole plants of J. curcas from nodes via the induction of buds aggregates. Histological observation shows that bud aggregates are simultaneously formed through axillary budding and adventitious regeneration of buds. These buds are elongated in MS medium supplemented with 2.21 µM BA, 5.70 µM IAA (indole-3-acetic acid) and 15 mg.l-1 L arginine. The leafy stems are then rooted on MS containing 2.46 µM IBA, 2% sucrose, and 0.7% agar. The entire process takes 14 weeks with 98% plants survival after acclimatization. We obtain a multiplication rate of 13 buds per explant per subculture. This protocol is more efficient than previously known protocols. [less ▲]

Recently, a lot of research has been devoted to the study of two-phase partitioning bioreactors (TPPB) as new technology for xenobiotic degradation in gaseous effluents. These reactors involve the use of a second non-aqueous phase to improve the solubility and transfer of hydrophobic compounds. In this work, we have developed a stirred two-phase partitioning bioreactor using silicone oil as second phase. Initially, Rhodococcus erythropolis T 902.1 was selected on the basis of its capacity to metabolize isopropyl-benzene (IPB), used as representative of the benzene-containing compounds. Secondly, the mass transfer of both IPB and oxygen has been considered with relation to their influence on the hydrodynamics of the reactor and the type of silicone oil used. The addition of 10% low viscosity silicone oil (10 cSt) in the reactor does not significantly affect the oxygen transfer rate. The very high solubility of IPB in the silicone oil leads to an enhancement of the driving force term, especially when high proportion of silicone oil are used. However, it is not necessary to use a volume fraction higher than 10% since KLaIPB and KLaO2 decrease sharply at above such proportion. In addition, an optimal concentration appeared to exist for both biotic components, respectively 0,5 g/L and 0,7 g/L for biomass (B) and surfactant extract (SE) when the global mass transfer coefficient (KLa) of oxygen was measured in the TPPB. More specifically, SE improved the interfacial area “a” by decreasing the bubble diameter, while B reduced it at concentrations up to 1 g/L. In contrast, the SE concentration acted negatively on KL, while it was favoured by the B concentration. In term of performances, it was clearly shown that the biodegradation rate is more directly related to the inlet flow of IPB than to the concentration of IPB in the inlet gas. The TPPB was monitored for 38 days to characterise its behaviour under several operational conditions. During an intermittent loading phase (10 h/day), the average elimination capacity remained above 240 g/m3.h for an average IPB inlet load of 390 g/m3. h. Finaly, an original approach was developed using a scale-down bioreactor allowing to reproduce the hydrodynamics encountered under full scale TPPB. It was clearly shown that the IPB affects negatively the scaling-up of the process by increasing the speed of phase partitioning. However, this negative impact was strongly compensated by the presence of biotic compounds stabilizing the two phase system and rendering the scaling-up process feasible. In conclusion, the use of a water-silicone oil TPPB to remove a high inlet load of IPB was successful. The proposed reactor retains a high potential for the biological treatment of gas effluents polluted by hydrophobic aromatic compounds. The suggested process might be applied in the range of concentration and flow where thermal oxidation is too expensive (between 1 and 7 g/Nm3) or when the biofilters are usually limited, i.e. to treat a polluted effluent concentrated with > 1 g/Nm3 at a flow of 90m3/m3.h.

L’étude aborde la mise au point d’un outil SIG décisionnel, basé sur une approche « expert » par logique floue, pour l’évaluation du risque de pollution des eaux de surface et souterraines par les pesticides. Une enquête de terrain combinée aux propriétés physico-chimiques des pesticides, a permis d’identifier la pression polluante agricole liée aux propriétés des pesticides et aux activités anthropiques. La sensibilité des sols au transfert des pesticides vers les eaux de surface et souterraines a été évaluée sur base, d’une part d’une approche par modélisation mécaniste, et d’autre part à partir de l’exploitation de l’information qualitative de la carte des sols, jugée pertinente et non explicitement valorisée par le modèle mécaniste. L’évaluation du risque global a ensuite été réalisée à partir de la construction d’un système expert basée sur la logique floue, qui intègre les évaluations spécifiques aux propriétés des pesticides, aux pratiques culturales et à la sensibilité des sols au transfert des pesticides vers les eaux, en tant que milieu transit-vecteur. L’approche par « logique floue » est un outil robuste qui permet notamment d’agréger de façon uniforme des informations de sources variées, mais aussi d’intégrer l’incertitude (imprécision) associée à certaines données, telles que celles liées aux caractéristiques physico-chimiques des pesticides ou des sols.
