From February 2006 to June 2007, we followed the movement patterns of the Rhine sculpin (Cottus rhenanus) by combining short-term radio-telemetry (n = 10 radio-tagged sculpin with a miniature 0.5-g transmitter) and long-term individual (PIT-tag) mark-recapture (n = 452 PIT-tagged sculpin during six removal electric fishing operations) studies in a small tributary of the River Meuse, Belgium. During a 25- to 27-day period, the radio-tracked sculpin displayed various mobility patterns, showing frequent movement from one day to another and longitudinal home ranges from 7 to 46 m, with cumulative distances up to 149 m. During the mark-recapture study, most (99%) recaptured PIT-tagged individuals moved from their original 5-m long site, subsequently using longitudinal home ranges between 5 and 435 m (mean, 50 m; median, 20 m). The most common movement behaviour was alternation between upstream and downstream movements (62%), followed by directional upstream (26%) and directional downstream (11%) movement. Using the latest available techniques, this study builds on the current knowledge on the Cottus genus and closes gaps in the comprehension of sculpin movement and home range at a scale that had not been investigated to date.

Eighteen adult nase Chondrostoma nasus (L.) (37.6-48.2 cm FL) from three highly fragmented Belgian rivers were tagged with surgically implanted radio transmitters and manually tracked from the banks of the rivers for 3-34 weeks. Their movements were mainly recorded during the circum reproduction period in 2001, 2002 and 2006 in river stretches delimited by physical barriers and/or minimum flow conditions. To reach the spawning grounds, nase displayed different patterns of movements that were mainly influenced by the configuration of the study site, the date of observation and the associated environmental conditions. Nase never cleared any physical obstacle but were able to spawn in minimum flow conditions or just downstream from physical obstacles. Nase were present on spawning grounds in late March in the warmest spring (2001) and from mid-April to early May in the coldest spring (2006). After spawning, a major proportion of C. nasus migrated a substantial distance downstream, whereas others remained near their capture site and showed frequent movements, sometimes corresponding to group displacements from one river to another.

From June to October 2004, n=6 C. lavaretus (LF 285-519 mm) were tracked (pingers and depth sensor transmitters) from a small boat over periods ranging from 98 to 108 days in Robertville Lake (elevation: 490 m; area: 63 ha max. depth: 47 in). Whitefish were consistently mobile but showed quite variable lake use patterns. Two individuals traveled the entire length and breadth of the lake, whereas others remained in movement in the deep zone in the middle part of the lake or near the retaining darn wall. Whitefish occupied positions in the water column ranging front 2.6 to 27.0 m (mean 12.7 +/- 5.6 m) that varied depending on individuals. This first study on individual whitefish behaviour provides a better understanding of the behavioural ecology of the species in small artificial lake. [less ▲]

Many species with complex life cycles, such as caudate amphibians, migrate from terrestrial to aquatic habitats for reproduction. However, movements between reproductive ponds within a breeding season have rarely been studied and are usually considered to be limited. Our aim was to determine whether this pattern occurs frequently in Alpine newts (Mesotriton alpestris) inhabiting complexes of small ruts on muddy forest tracks. We analysed capture-recapture data for individually marked newts as a function of locality, sex, body condition and hydroperiod throughout the breeding season. More than one third of the newts changed their ruts. Movements occurred more often towards ruts that did not dry during the breeding season. The body condition of males that changed ponds (but not that of females) was higher compared to that of resident newts in one of the studied populations. The relatively high frequency of movements between ruts can be seen as an adaptive strategy in unpredictable habitats which have a high probability of drying. The promiscuous pattern of newts also favours low site tenacity, because few sexual partners are available in each rut. Because of the broad occurrence of this kind of habitat, future studies should take into account these movements to better understand newt population dynamics and how to apply adequate conservation measures.

The aim of this study is to characterise the mobility templates of two patrimonial species of rheophilic cyprinids (Barbus barbus and Squalius cephalus) and of a species of exotic fish, the catfish (Silurus glanis), in an area of the upper Rhône River characterised by significant disruptions of flow and thermal regimes (caused by hydroelectric and nuclear power plants). Results reveal contrasted mobility patterns, habitat uses and home-range sizes between endemic and exogenous fish species, but with a high interindividual variability. [less ▲]

A common method in technical analysis is the construction of moving averages along time series of stock prices. We show that they present a practical interest for physicists, and raise new questions on fundamental ground. Indeed, self-affine signals characterized by a defined roughness exponent H can be investigated through moving averages. The density rho of crossing points between two moving averages is shown to be a measure of long-range power-law correlations in a signal. Finally, we present a specific transform with which various structures in a signal, e.g. trends, cycles, noise, etc, can be investigated in a systematic way. [less ▲]

This article summarizes the state of affairs of European research on ageing and work. After a close inspection of the age construct, an overview is presented of research in four areas: the relationship between age and HR-policies, early retirement, age and performance/employability, age and health/well-being. The overview results in a research agenda on work and ageing and in recommendations for practice. [less ▲]
