Lordosis and/or kyphosis, also called ”dipped shoulder” or ”humpy‐back” is sporadically observed in growing pigs. This condition is characterized by a thoracic and/or lumbar spinal deformity. Pathomorphologically, it may be comparable with Scheuermann’s kyphosis in man and so constitutes a spontaneous model for this humane kyphosis of the thoracic or thoracolumbar spine. In pigs, this condition may decrease the value of carcasses, making deboning efforts challenging. Three major and non‐exclusive hypotheses formulated to explain these back deformations are nutrition, intrauterine viral infection and inherited predisposition. The objective of the present study was to test the latter and, if possible, to identify a locus (some loci) associated with the affection. Forty‐eight pigs were included in this case‐control study. Based on a clinical examination and/or on a measure of the degree of spinal deformity, 25 pigs classified as affected were compared to 23 pigs considered as normal. A whole genome Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) analysis was performed using a 50,000 SNP array. DNA from forty‐seven samples (tail tissue or blood) was extracted while one sample was eliminated because of its poor quality. After applying quality controls, 40 pigs and 57,838 SNPs (on a total of 62,163) remained for further analysis. One SNP (ASGA0090747) located on Sus scrofa chromosome SSC8 crossed the genome‐wide significant threshold and is thus suspected of being associated with the lordosis and/or kyphosis phenotype. These results seem to confirm the hereditary hypothesis. Further investigations are however needed to confirm the suspected association. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 76 (10 ULg)

We propose in this paper to make an evaluation of the emergeant of a small food chain "boeuf des prairies gaumaises (os from gaumaise grassland) that has started in 2003 and the first sold os in 2007. As interdisciplinary research team (stockfarming system and environmental sociology) we have sustained the emergence of this experience during an intervention resarch.

Currently, protected areas and protected natural species are in a state of proliferation all over the world. Landscapes, flagship species, peoples in voluntary isolation, ecosystems, and “biological corridors” are all protected. In order to achieve this, categories of protection at different geographical levels have been mobilized. The processes that allow any one of these categories to become operational within a precise territory are more or less well standardized and have in common, amongst others things, two components that have caught my attention: Firstly, the central role of previous scientific and technical studies, and secondly, the desire to ensure the participation of the populations concerned. How are relations between scientists and the non-scientific public in participatory environmental management? This thesis seeks to answer this question, from the starting point of an analysis of the cognitive dimension of participatory environmental management, i.e. how the production of knowledge affects the modes of existence within protected areas (and consequently their human and nonhuman inhabitants). Building upon the study of daily activities that bring scientists and indigenous peoples into contact in and around the scientific field stations “Yasuní” and “Juri Juri Kawsay” (in the Ecuadorian Amazon), this research describes the relationship between ways of knowing a conflicting object (for example a natural species, a territorial boundary, an isolated people) and the consequences in terms of configuration of that object (in terms of identity, value, and fragility) and its management (administration, use, protection, recovery or abandonment). By mobilizing the approach of Actor-Network theory, this dissertation attempts to outline how mediation between humans and nonhumans, non-scientific and scientific, occurs. It also offers a reflection on how the Agency of an entity (the competence to make make distributed in the humans and nonhumans actors) comes to influence the joint actions. This research can capture the ambiguity, instability, resistance and complexity that still exist in the Amazon, with some unexpected findings along the way, by showing the changes among things and people throughout development projects, land management initiatives, and conservation and science programs. After describing the trajectory of four entities (laboratories, species conservation, territories and subjects), which meet at the Amazonian interfaces where science, conservation and development are in competition, the findings of this dissertation have met two ambitions: to consider the importance of taking into account the complexity and historicity of scientific data and to answer a broader question: What are the relevant factors to take into account when considering the possibilities for joint action between scientists and indigenous populations?

Diverse families are constantly confronted with multiple losses. In psychotherapeutic consultation, they often appear as “grieving” systems whose identity is built on a loss. New theories of grief focus on family meaning-making processes. Unresolved grieving entails limited emotion sharing as well as poor family meaning-making. Moreover, some factors inhibit this process while others stimulate it. Using clinical illustration, this article tries to prove the relevance of such concepts. It suggests working to re-create, review, and reconstruct the family ties around its losses or break-ups. However, this work would remain reductive if it would not take account of the benefits and gains that often, within the experience of grief, families do not consider or anticipate.
