The discovery of ancient footprints and spraints (faeces) of European Otter in the caves of Arcy-sur-Cure (Yonne), renowned for their great archaeological interest, has led the scientific team of the Museum of Natural Sciences of Orleans to launch an original archaeozoological study. The analyzes allowed, on the one hand, to date the deposits of spraints and, on the other hand, to know the main preys of these “cave otters” after the remains of prey contained in the spraints... This extensive study is among the first of its kind in France, regarding otters who frequently used an underground river a thousand years ago ! [less ▲]

In microfluidics flow focusing is widely used to produce water-in-oil droplets in microchannels at high frequency. Nevertheless, the scaling laws associated to droplet length, speed and frequency could not be identified yet, owing to the large number of parameters involved (incl. complex geometry). We here present an experimental study of droplet formation in a microfluidic cross-junction with a minimum number of geometrical parameters. We mostly focus on the dripping regime. The formation sequence is decomposed in two steps, inflation and squeezing, that vary differently according to both water and oil flow rates. These variations reveal several insights about the fluid flows in both phases. From there we infer the scaling law that relates droplet volume and frequency to the Capillary number associated to each inlet flow rate. This law involves a minimum of fitting parameters. We finally discuss the influence of inlet control (flow rate vs. pressure) and surfactants on the formation dynamics. [less ▲]

Ichthyosaurs rapidly diversified and colonised a wide range of ecological niches during the Early and Middle Triassic period, but experienced a major decline in diversity near the end of the Triassic. Timing and causes of this demise and the subsequent rapid radiation of the diverse, but less disparate, parvipelvian ichthyosaurs are still unknown, notably because of inadequate sampling in strata of latest Triassic age. Here, we describe an exceptionally large radius from Lower Jurassic deposits at Penarth near Cardiff, South Wales (UK) the morphology of which places it within the giant Triassic shastasaurids. A tentative total body size estimate, based on a regression analysis of various complete ichthyosaur skeletons, yields a value of 12-15 m. The specimen is substantially younger than any previously reported last known occurrences of shastasaurids and implies a Lazarus range in the lowermost Jurassic for this ichthyosaur morphotype.

In recent years, the stars of the Of?p category have revealed a wealth of peculiar phenomena: varying line profiles, photometric changes, and X-ray over-luminosity are only a few of their characteristics. Here we review their physical properties to facilitate comparisons among the Galactic members of this class. As one of them his been proposed to resemble the magnetic oblique rotator theta(1) Ori C, though with a longer period, this latter object is also included in our study to illuminate its similarities and differences with the Of?p category.

Dans un premier chapitre, une définition détaillée du mythe est fournie, de même que la méthode d'analyse qui en découle. Le chapitre deux présente, de manière critique et détaillée, l'ensemble des sources mentionnant, de près ou de loin, le personnage ou la constellation d'Orion., Le chapitre trois est consacré à l'analyse des différents épisodes du mythe et aux grands axes qu'on peut en déceler, principalement concernant les différentes types d'initation et les rôles respectifs de Zeus et de Poseidon. Il ressort de cette analyse qu'avant d'être porté par un héros de la mythologie grecque, le nom d'Orion, dont l'étymolgie est expliquée, est d'abord lié à la constellation, dont les effets du lever et du coucher peuvent être désastreux. Le nom a ensuite été donné au héros de la mythologie grecque, qui, par son origine et ses actions, rappelle le caractère excessif de la constellation. [less ▲]
