Diffuse pollution of water resources due to pesticides uses is a major environmental issue in the European Union, regulated by specific legislations: the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EC) and the Thematic Strategy on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides. Solving this environmental problem requires methods and tools for spatial risk analysis, notably at a local scale (agricultural parcel level). This paper presents the first developments of a decision support system aiming to assess surface and ground waters pollution risks due to pesticides uses, based on a Geographic Information System (GIS). Different factors affecting pesticide environmental propagation are taken into account, as for example land use, pesticides properties and application modalities, environment characteristics (soil properties, topography, climate, …) as well as surface and ground waters characteristics. A pesticide emission model is used to assess pesticide leaching or runoff to water resources. The reference scale for risks assessment is the agricultural parcel. The quality of the results obtained will be assessed by comparison with existing water monitoring data and related studies. [less ▲]

Context Chlordecone, an environmentally persistent organochlorine insecticide used intensively in banana culture in the French West Indies until 1993, has permanently polluted soils and contaminated foodstuffs. Consumption of contaminated food is the main source of exposure nowadays. We sought to identify main contributors to blood chlordecone concentration (BCC) and to validate an exposure indicator based on food intakes.Material and methods We used a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) completed by a sample of 194 pregnant women to estimate their dietary exposure to chlordecone and compared it to blood levels. In a first approach, chlordecone daily intake was estimated as the product of daily eaten quantity of 214 foodstuffs, multiplied by their chlordecone content, and summed over all items. We then predicted individual blood chlordecone concentration with empirical weight regression models based on frequency of food consumption, and without contamination data.Results Among the 191 subjects who had BCC determination, 146 (76%) had detectable values and mean BCC was 0.86†ng/mL (range < LOD-13.2). Mean per capita dietary intake of chlordecone was estimated at 3.3†[mu]g/day (range: 0.1-22.2). Blood chlordecone levels were significantly correlated with food exposure predicted from the empirical weight models (r=0.47, p<0.0001) and, to a lesser extent, with chlordecone intake estimated from food consumption and food contamination data (r=0.20, p=0.007). Main contributors to chlordecone exposure included seafood, root vegetables, and Cucurbitaceous.Conclusion These results show that the Timoun FFQ provides valid estimates of chlordecone exposure. Estimates from empirical weight models correlated better with blood levels of chlordecone than did estimates from the dietary intake assessment. [less ▲]

Dans les Alpes du Sud de la France, des diminutions de populations de chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) ont été rapportées. Or, depuis une dizaine d’année, des pestivirus ont causé de fortes mortalités dans des populations d’isards des Pyrénées (Rupicapra pyrenaica). Bien que les signes cliniques associés à cette infection aient été caractérisés chez cette espèce, la pathogénie chez les animaux gestants est peu étudiée. De plus, des transmissions inter-espèces ont régulièrement été incriminées dans l’épidémiologie des pestiviroses ; ceci particulièrement au niveau des alpages où des contacts fréquents sont décrits entre ruminants sauvages et domestiques. Les objectifs de ce travail de thèse ont donc été, dans un premier temps, d’étudier la pathogénie de l’infection à pestivirus chez des isards et plus particulièrement ses effets sur la gestation. Dans un second temps, nous avons étudié l’épidémiologie de l’infection dans différentes zones de la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA), tout d’abord chez des ruminants sauvages, puis à l’interface entre les ruminants sauvages et domestiques partageant les mêmes alpages (...).
