Le psychothérapeute (psychologue ou psychiatre) peut être convoqué comme témoin lors d’un procès concernant un de ses patients ou clients. Dans ce cadre, la Loi prévoit une exception à l’obligation du secret professionnel et autorise le professionnel à dévoiler des éléments liés à la psychothérapie. Cependant, si la Loi autorise la levée du secret professionnel, l’éthique et la déontologie professionnelles ne recommandent pas nécessairement de suivre cette voie. En effet, de nombreuses questions, telles que l’utilité, les risques et les conséquences de cette divulgation, se posent aussi bien au niveau de la relation thérapeutique avec la personne concernée que pour l’ensemble de la profession et le cadre thérapeutique de la pratique clinique de manière générale. Cette communication présente une réflexion autour des divergences qui apparaissent entre ce que préconisent la Loi, l’éthique et la déontologie. En outre, nous proposons d’alimenter la discussion en distinguant les situations dans lesquelles le patient ou client du psychothérapeute est la victime ou au contraire, l’auteur de faits délictueux.

The objective of the BIOSERF project is to assess the sustainability of a tropical humid forest ecosystem and the local human communities in southern Congo under future climate, demographic and societal changes. The project focuses on the interactions between flora, fauna and local human population to understand the processes affecting biodiversity and ecosystem services in tropical humid areas, with the objective of setting up mechanisms to preserve local biodiversity. In close collaboration with a local NGO, it will use a dynamic vegetation model (CARAIB) which will be integrated within an agent-based model, to analyze the impacts of different ecosystem services in a tropical humid area, e.g. the production of medicinal plants, of wood and other forest products, or the services provided by the building of natural reserves. The vegetation model will be upgraded to take into account the process of regeneration of several plant species, selected for their use by local human populations, through a quantitative and qualitative description of plant dispersal by the animal community. To do so, a selection of five tree species frequently or traditionally used will be made based on the results of a sociological survey. Observations (direct or through camera trapping) of a sample of the selected species will allow identifying the main dispersers and the pattern of seed shadow they generate. Integrated into the CARAIB model, these results will allow figuring how the evolution of the dispersal community under pressures of climate change, habitat loss and hunting, but also potentially placed under managed protection could affect the services available to the human community.

We present a seismic analysis of the pulsating subdwarf B star KPD 0629-0016 on the basis of the long-period, gravity-mode pulsations uncovered by CoRoT. Thanks to space- based facilities, g-mode seismology can now be exploited quantitatively for stars on the ex- treme horizontal branch, an objective undermined so far by the limitations of ground-based observations. The optimal seismic model offers an excellent fit, with a relative dispersion of 0.23%, to the 18 observed periods identified with theoretical modes of degrees l =1 and 2. The inferred structural parameters for KPD 0629–0016 include the total stellar mass, the thickness of the H-rich envelope, and, thanks to the sensitivity of g-modes, the size and the composition of the convective core. Our results suggest that extra mixing processes shape the helium-burning cores, that are representative of all horizontal branch stars in general, an intermediate and underrated stage of stellar evolution.

The recycling of waste material produced by human activity is one of the challenges of our generation. One of the most serious environmental problems of the recent years is mass production of tire and the di􏰟culty of disposing of them. The material and energetic valorization of the wasted tires is possible through the extension of 􏰔green roads􏰕. The incorporation of crumb rubber from wasted tires in bi- tuminous binders allows the design of new asphalt pavements with a higher viscosity. A preliminary study to determine the impact of the use of crumb rubber modi􏰝ed bituminous binder in the sound generation level for a thin layer type BBTM11A, has been carried out by the LA2IC. These results are compared with sound level from a BBTM11A with a conventional binder. This work presents the acoustical characterization performed on the regional road CM-3102 in Ciudad Real (Castilla- La Mancha), based on the close proximity methodology (Tiresonic Mk4-LA2IC ). In addition, mea- surements of super􏰝cial macrotexture pro􏰝le have been realized with the LaserDynamicPG-LA2IC to study the relationship with close proximity road noise. Furthermore, sound absorption measurements of BBTM11A compacted samples have been analyzed to understand the mechanisms involved in the sound generation. The results show that addition of crumb rubber by the wet process leads, in this case (20% crumb rubber content), to a decrease in the sound level emitted by the interaction between tire and road surface, at low frequency by mu􏰠ing the vibrations and by sounf absorption at high frequency.

The question is the links between leadership and corporate social responsibility. Can some types of leadership improve some type of social responsibility? Are moral leadership and ethical leadership one solution? Today, in the international economic context, it is important to think about the kind of leadership for the company. To understand this links, it is important to understand the relation between the different stakeholders, the importance of the corporate culture and of the corporate identity. How build this identity? Which levels? One individual level and one institutional level exists. We will try to understand the contradictions and the resistances for more social responsibility and will present some cases. [less ▲]

The removal of particulate soils from solid surfaces is the key process of cleaning many industrial devices, such as heat exchangers and spray dryers (food and pharmaceutical sector), and may be influenced by the presence of solutes, in particular of macromolecules. The present study deals with the influence of soluble polysaccharide on the adherence of particulate fouling of open surfaces and on subsequent cleaning. Model surfaces differing by hydrophobicity (glass and polystyrene) were soiled with a suspension of quartz particles, taken as a model of hard hydrophilic soil. Dextran was chosen as a model of soluble polysaccharide. The surfaces were soiled with or without previous conditioning with the polysaccharide solution (80mg/l). The quartz particles suspension was prepared in three ways: (i) suspension in a polysaccharide solution (80mg/l), (ii) same as (i) and subsequent washing three times, (iii) suspension in water. The surfaces were soiled by spraying the suspension and dried for 30min before cleaning treatment with a water flow in a radial flow chamber. The aggregates observed after soiling differed considerably between glass and polystyrene, whether the surface and/or the quartz particles are conditioned with dextran. Conditioning polystyrene with dextran increased slightly the adherence of quartz particles, while the opposite was observed when conditioning glass with dextran, whatever the mode of quartz particles conditioning. The effect of conditioning quartz particles with dextran at the concentration used was not significant. [less ▲]

The aim of this study is to characterize the surface behavior (on an acoustical and a textural level) of bituminous mixtures. The relationship between a road surface characteristic (MPD) and close proxim- ity noise of a bituminous mixture has been analyzed. The survey was conducted by the Laboratory of Acoustic Applied to Civil Engineering (LA2IC) on a test track with two experimental sections paved with ultrathin gap-graded mixtures, with di􏰜erent air void content. Acoustic 􏰝eld measurements of the tire/pavement interaction in close proximity to the contact patch were carried out with a trailer with a protective chamber (TiresonicMk4-LA2IC). Also, measurements of super􏰝cial macrotexture pro􏰝le have been performed with the LaserDynamicPG-LA2IC in order to understand the in􏰞uence of texture on sound generation of the analyzed bituminous mixtures. In this communication it is shown that the macrotexture pro􏰝le of these ultrathin gap-graded pavements has a strong in􏰞uence on the sound generation at intermediate frequencies. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that the commonly accepted belief, that road surfaces with high porosity emit less sound levels, is not always ful􏰝lled. [less ▲]

In Europe, as in North America, GBS infections among infants are associated to high morbidity and mortality even if some differences exist between different European countries. During the past two decades, major initiatives have been proposed to prevent early onset GBS disease (EOD) and they are still subject of controversy. Several European countries have issued guidelines for the prevention of neonatal GBS diseases, either universal screening-based or risk-based strategy, others have no official guidelines at all. In countries having guidelines, despite considerable efforts and economic resources spent on intrapartum antimicrobial prophylaxis for GBS EOD, cases continue to occur. Among these cases there are a lot of missed opportunities to administer IAP but there are also false negative screening. Therefore in the setting of a maternal GBS-screening program and successful implementation of the strategy, efforts to improve screening for GBS status remain important. The natural reservoir for GBS is the gastrointestinal tract and is likely the source for vaginal colonization. Among pregnant women, GBS carriage rate in the vaginal and rectal flora ranges from 10% up to 30%. Critical factors that influence the accuracy of detecting GBS maternal colonization are the choice of the body sites sampled, the timing of sampling and the use of selective culture media. The evolution of the different culture options to improve the GBS-screening strategy will be reviewed. If the optimal time for performing antenatal cultures is between 35 to 37 weeks’ gestation, as GBS carriage is highly variable, the predictive values of GBS antenatal cultures are not always as good predictors of the maternal GBS status at presentation for delivery as expected. Potential alternative to antenatal GBS-screening culture is the identification of GBS colonization at presentation for delivery. Use of a reliable, sensitive, easy to use rapid test should be cost effective leading to the prevention of more EOGBS cases while reducing the number of unnecessarily IAP. Advances of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and fluorescence labeling technologies has provided new detection tools for bacterial identification. Therefore, commercialization of rapid detection of GBS through real-time PCR offers the potential for GBS detection among women without prenatal care or those in whom no antenatal culture was collected. However questions of costs and logistics remain unanswered. Could such rapid intrapartum test replace existing screening strategies or could it be used in conjunction with them? Colonizing rates and recommended screening procedures existing through Europe will be reviewed. [less ▲]

Metalliferous sites often host rare, ecologically endemic taxa adapted to high levels of heavy metals in soils. In Belgium, these sites correspond to Calamine sites. They are often considered as waste ground dangerous for human health and public authorities are inclined to promote site remediation by fertilization, ground supply or removal, building ... In the present study, we analysed the seed bank of two ancient calamine sites in order to precise strategies for restoration of calamine original communities by top soil removal and perturbation. Composite soil samples were taken in 5 facies in two sites corresponding to different association. Cores were divided in three layers: litter, 0-5 cm, 5-10 cm. The total number of taxa was 24 taxa at Theux and 15 at Schmalgraf. The most abundant species (68%) are Agrostis capillaries and Viola calaminaria. Seed bank composition appeared different between facies except for three species. The seed bank was dominated by pseudo metallophytes species in Schmalgraf and by metallophytes or other species in Theux. The majority of the species didn’t present significant difference of number of seed between the three layers, except seven species (A. capillaries, V. calaminaria, Silene vulgaris, Minuertia verna, ...) with significant lower number of seed in the layer 5-10 cm. Our result showed that soil seed bank composition refl ect well vegetation communities of the two sites. In addition, because pseudo-metallophyte species as Agrostis capillaries dominated seed bank when they were present in the vegetation, soil removal must be used with parsimony to restore original communities.

Introduction and Background: Carbohydrate-based surfactants (CBS) are, today, among the most attractive amphiphilic compounds owing to their high potentiality for a large product concept. The main fundamental reasons are the abundance of their precursors from renewable resources, the excellent environmental compatibility, and the quasi-unlimited availability of their molecular structure and geometry. Based on the latter aspect, CBS would be expected to generate a wide range of functionalities and activities for food and non-food applications. All kinds of amphiphilic compounds including small surfactants, bolaforms, geminis, oligomeric, and polymeric molecules with a single or a multiple hydrophobic tails can be designed by synthetic routes thanks to a large number of reactive chemical groups in their basic structure. Consequently, various methodologies are required, and could be used in complementary for identifying all of their potentiality for further development. Methodology: The methodology is based on the characterization in the laboratory scale, i.e. using only small amounts of sample, of CBS properties at fluid and solid interfaces, in bulk liquid phases, and at the solid state with simplified models. Results and Discussion: In this communication, an overview of functionality and activity-predicting methods for a wide range of CBS structures varying in head polar groups, hydrophobic tail and number, and linkers will be presented and discussed. Performances and complementarities of different approaches, methodologies, and techniques will be emphasized. These include sample preparation and analysis procedures, interfacial-characterizing instruments, mainly tensiometers and Langmuir balances used both in dynamic and (quasi)-static modes, particle size and electrical charge analyser, and (micro)calorimeters using differential scanning, isothermal titration, and thermogravimetry methods. Conclusion: The knowledge of these basic properties is helpful for predicting their main activities and functionalities like their aptitude for forming and stabilizing colloidal systems, and for developing biological activities. This is also necessary for the rational design of CBS amphiphilic structure regarding to specific properties. The same approach can also be applied for other required features as the compound stability, toxicity, and biodegradability. [less ▲]

The zinc violet, Viola calaminaria is a threatened species, endemic to calamine sites in Belgium and West Germany. Since the end of 19th century, the V. calaminaria habitat network have exhibited a huge dynamics, with creation of new habitats resulting from industrial pollution and destruction of habitats by urbanisation and site remediation. In the present study, we analysed the effect of population history (recent/ancient population) on genetic diversity, fitness and reproductive success in order to discuss conservation strategies for the species. Recently founded populations exhibited similar level of genetic diversity (Hs) as ancient populations but showed a lower genetic differentiation among population (Fst). No indication of strong founder effects in recently established populations was detected. Plant fitness (seed set and germination percentage) was higher in recent populations while other reproductive traits (vegetative density, flower density, fructification percentage) did not differ according to population history. Results suggest that the creation of habitats through human activities can provide new opportunities for conservation of this species. In increasingly disturbed environments, this indicates that, at least for some species, conservation strategies should not focus solely on traditional and natural habitats but also consider the potential benefits offered by modified landscapes.

Notre rapport aux images peut-il être aussi réfléchi et critique que notre rapport aux discours (au langage) ? Et si l’on suppose que oui, comment le définir ? Cette question est d’une grande actualité : l’iconosphère contemporaine est tellement riche (au double sens d’abondante et de difficile à digérer/assimiler), qu’il importe de se ménager la possibilité d’un point de vue critique sur les images. Warburg – pour sa part – formulait le problème comme suit : comment s’orienter dans l’espace de pensée ouvert par les images ? À cette question d'orientation répond le projet d’un Atlas d’images intitulé Mnemosyne. Je vais donc ici tourner autour de l’œuvre tardive de Warburg (années 20) pour essayer de saisir au mieux l’usage qu’il fait du concept de Denkraum (espace de pensée). Il y a un lien étroit entre les recherches de Warburg sur le Denkraum et le projet Mnemosyne. Pour le dire plus franchement encore : l’Atlas de Warburg nous présente visuellement le Denkraum. Le projet de l’Atlas tend vers une explicitation de l’espace de pensée renaissant et, à partir de là sans doute, de l’espace de pensée contemporain. Warburg dit lui même que l’idée qui guide la confection de l’Atlas consiste à retrouver l’origine de l’espace de pensée [Der Ursprung des Denkraums] . [less ▲]

This paper aims at studying the effect of the extent of disclosure on information asymmetry and stock-market liquidity in France. Our sample includes196 French listed firms over a period ranging from 2004 to 2007, the results show that the extent of disclosure in annual reports positively influence the liquidity of the French market. This is explained by the negative effect of the disclosure on the adverse selection component of the bid-ask spread. This effect is further confirmed by the commitment to IFRS by French-listed firms from 2005. This result should encourage French authorities to further improve their information environment as essential to reduce the costs of asymetric information and prevent the risk of illiquidity.

This paper presents first results of a study that examines the impact of the workplace climate on workplace training effectiveness. Here training effectiveness is conceptualised in terms of transfer of training and the workplace climate is specified in terms of transfer climate. According to the theoretical framework by Carr, Schmidt, Ford and DeShon (2003), we hypothesise that the impact of the transfer climate on the transfer of training will be moderated and/or mediated by cognitive and affective states. Statistical analyses will be conducted to check the hypothesised mediating and moderating role of job satisfaction (affective state) and job engagement (cognitive state) between the transfer climate and the transfer of the newly acquired knowledge. Transfer climate has been broadly studied for its direct impact on transfer of training. The major issue of this study is to examine the interaction of the transfer climate with other variables In a longitudinal quantitative study, data are collected at the Belgian Sickness Fund. Participants are employees who took part to a training session between March and December 2010 (N=680). Right after the conclusion of the training program, each trainee is invited to fill the Learning transfer System Inventory (Holton, Bates, & Ruona, 2000), a scale measuring 16 dimensions of the transfer climate. One month later, participants are asked to fill a second questionnaire about their perception of the transfer (general and specific performance), job satisfaction (Price, 1977) and job engagement (Schaufeli & Bakker, 2003).

Mind-wandering refers to the occurrence of thoughts whose content is both decoupled from stimuli present in the immediate environment and unrelated to the task currently being carried out. In a series of experiments, we used a newly designed experience sampling method to assess mind-wandering episodes and to distinguish them from other kinds of distractions (irrelevant interoceptive/exteroceptive sensory perceptions and interfering thoughts related to the appraisal of the current task). In Experiment 1, we examined the impact of mind-wandering on performance of the Sustained Attention to Response Task (SART; a Go/No-Go task). Analyses demonstrated that episodes of mind-wandering impair SART performance to the same extent as irrelevant sensory perceptions. In Experiment 2, we focused on the content of mind-wandering in order to assess its possible functions. We observed that most of reported mind-wandering episodes refer to the anticipation and planning of future events. Furthermore, this “prospective bias” was increased when participants’ attention had been oriented toward their personal goals prior to performing the SART. In Experiment 3, we examined the neural correlates of mind-wandering using functional magnetic resonance imaging. The results showed that the brain regions that were more active during episodes of mind-wandering are similar to the regions that have been associated with imagining future events in previous studies. Together, these results suggest that although episodes of mind-wandering negatively impact current task performance, they may have important adaptive value and could, in particular, play a key role in planning for the future.

Le décret des missions prioritaires de l’enseignement fondamental et secondaire, les programmes du secondaire supérieur en sciences et les commissions des outils d’évaluation recommandent de travailler la compétence « expérimenter – utiliser des procédures expérimentales » avec les élèves (FT2 mener à bien une recherche expérimentale). Les futurs enseignants du secondaire supérieur ne sont pas toujours conscients des enjeux et de la portée des démarches scientifiques (et/ou expérimentales) qu’ils mettent en place en classe. Regarder un « C’est pas sorcier », cela équivaut-il à réaliser ou faire réaliser aux élèves une expérience en classe ? Certains ont peur de se lancer dans des démarches expérimentales plus libres car ils craignent la question dont ils n’auraient pas réponse immédiate ou la piste expérimentale qu’ils n’auraient pas anticipée. D’autres craignent l’expérience qui rate, la saleté, le désordre et le bruit. D’autres encore mentionnent le matériel, difficile à rassembler et surtout à transporter, le temps nécessaire pour mener à bien certaines expériences (p.ex. germinations)… Sous l’intitulé « expérimentons », les manuels scolaires proposent différents types d’outils. Est-ce que ces démarches correspondent réellement à cette compétence ? Est-ce l’élève qui expérimente ? Quel est l’apport de ce type d’outils ? En proposant différents ateliers « expérimentaux » aux participants, nous voudrions attirer l’attention sur ces différents points et réfléchir ensemble à ces questions :  Quel est le statut réel de la démarche proposée aux élèves ?  Quelle est la part de l’élève dans la construction de son apprentissage? Quel est le rôle de l’enseignant ?  Quels sont les avantages à travailler par ce type de démarches pour l’enseignant et pour ses élèves? Quelle image de la science et du scientifique véhicule-t-on à travers notre façon de travailler la compétence « expérimenter » en classe ?

The Belgian emigrants’ political participation in home country politics is an issue that has undergone several important developments since the end of the 1990s but has surprisingly been subject to very little research. The absence of the issue of emigration from the Belgian political agenda combined with the limited engagement of this population with the home country thus stands for the absence of research on the topic. The lack of academic interest, in turn, has favoured the development of two major stereotypes in Belgium with respect to the political preferences of citizens residing abroad. One is that the Belgian population abroad would tend to be more favourable to right-wing parties than the average Belgian citizens. This stereotype has long explained why the Francophone liberal party (PRL later called MR) has been most active in supporting the enfranchisement of citizens abroad for legislative elections. The second stereotype, to which we will devote most of our attention in this article, supposes that Belgians abroad would be unaffected by the political tensions opposing Flemish and Francophone political parties in Belgium over the past decade. Despite the fact that over the past forty years Belgian politics have been increasingly dominated by the ethnic tension between Flemings and Francophones, the stereotype that Belgians abroad would be unaffected by these developments has remained. The idea that the evolution towards greater regional autonomy defended by political parties (with more intensity in Flanders than in French-speaking Belgium) would not find echo among Belgians abroad is thus very prevalent and is still frequently propagated by the press. In this article, I however question this idea that the political opinions of Belgians abroad would be unaffected by the evolution of the ethnic conflict between Flemings and Francophones and argue instead that the evolution of the ethnic conflict has led to the parallel division of the Belgian political opinion abroad. Belgian emigrants are not more supportive of the Belgian unitary state model than Belgian citizens residing in Belgium. To support this argument, I will proceed to the following analysis. After a brief presentation of the socio-demographic profile of the Belgian emigrant population, I first proceed to a discussion on the creation of the two main Belgian emigrant associations to demonstrate how the tension between Flemings and Francophones was a crucial variable in the creation and development of these organizations. Second, I discuss the adoption of the two external voting laws to illustrate how the anticipated impact of emigrant voters has steered controversies on the territorial border between Flemish and French-speaking areas of Belgium. This situation, I argue, has contributed to further the distinction between Flemish and French-speaking Belgians abroad. Third, comparing the evolution of national legislative elections in 2003, 2007 and 2010, I argue that the success of Flemish nationalist parties in Flanders has followed a similar pattern among Flemish voters abroad.

Nowadays, analysis of bibliographic databases is a current practice, especially the comparison between traditional, commercial databases and search engines as Google Scholar that has wind right aft. A great deal of researchers analyzed the contents or the citations system of various databases. Some compared the contents of several databases, for specific scientific domains, searching by author (Mikki, 2010; Cecchino, 2010) or keywords (Falagas, 2008). There are no studies concerning the precise domain of geography. This study covers bibliographical databases specialized in geography (physical and human) and Google Scholar search engine. This analyze will point out to geographers what a research in Google Scholar search engine can offer, regarding exclusively contents, in comparison with traditional databases: WOS, Francis and Georef. This analysis does not aim to underline the difference of databases features, but to show what a research in certain databases can bring, from the point of view of contents. To perform this study, we use keywords (in English) and establish them for the physical and human geography according to actual subjects of the respective fields. The research will bring new concrete results given that no comparison of this type was led between the traditional databases used by geographers and Google Scholar. We also hope to give an idea of the possible evolution of the contents for Google Scholar search engine during the determined period of our study. [less ▲]

Several satellites measure Sea Surface Temperature (SST), each of these with different technical specificities and error sources. Together with in situ data, they form a highly complementary data set. The creation of merged SST products, integrating the strengths of each of its components and minimising their weaknesses, is however not an easy task, but it is certainly a desirable goal that has generated a large amount of research over the last years. The main objectives of this project are, among others: 1.To develop a technology, based on DINEOF (Data Interpolating Empirical Orthogonal Functions), that allows to merge different data sets at very different sampling intervals (in space and time) and create an integrated product at the highest sampling frequency and with the highest quality possible. 2.To provide improved, merged analyses of variables such as SST and chlorophyll. 3.Obtain a better understanding of the diurnal cycle of the studied variables. 4.To better understand the relation between variables (and take advantage of these relationship to improve the analyses). 5.Using the above-mentioned developments, explore the capability of the developed technology to produce SST forecasts based on multi-variate EOFs and model forecasts. We will present the first preliminary results for merging different SST data sets, as well as our plans for future developments and applications.

Wireworms, the belowground larvae of click beetles (Coleoptera: Elateridae), represent a threat for various crops, including cereals, potatoes and small fruits, in many countries. In order to promote the development of bio-pesticides or the selection of resistant varieties, studies concerning the close relationship between wireworms and the roots they attack have to be conducted. Indeed, lacks of knowledge in the chemical ecology of these small but consequent pests baffle such achievements. Here, we studied the reactions of wireworms (Agriotes sordidus Illiger) facing root-emitted volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of barley. We first tested the ability of wireworms to orientate towards a blend of volatile compounds emitted by seven day’s old mashed roots of barley grown in vermiculite. We used a Y-shaped horizontal olfactometre, which inferior half was filled with compressed and humidified vermiculite. Wireworms were able to detect blends of volatiles emitted by mashed roots, and to orientate their foraging behaviour toward the emission source. Volatile compounds were identified from barley roots using SPME-GC-MS and several chemicals were identified. This study is part of a larger programme which purpose is the identification of VOCs emitted by the roots of barley and different actors of the rhizosphere, and to assess their semiochemical functions.

Postharvest fungal pathogens, mainly Botrytis cinerea, Penicillum expansum and Gloeosporium spp., annually cause 5-20% losses of fruit. Control measures against these diseases include chemical fungicide applications, but the development of resistant fungal explains the growing interest for biological control. Pichia anomala strain K was previously identified as an efficient antagonist of pathogens on apples. Indeed, the percentage of protection of P.anomala against B.cinerea reached from 90 to 100% on apple wounds according to the experimental conditions. Microbiological, biochemical and molecular approaches demonstrated the implication of exo-β-1,3-glucanases in the mechanism of action of P.anomala. However, study of these mechanisms could be improved by observations under natural infection conditions in order to take into account the tripartite interactions host/antagonist/pathogen. The proteomic tool allowed an overview of process implicated in the antagonism against B.cinerea in such conditions. One 50mm wound per apple were covered by a membrane and inoculated by a P.anomala suspension then by B.cinerea or not. Samples were collected during the exponential and stationary phase to identify the early and later responses to the presence of B.cinerea. After extraction, proteins were separated on 2DE gels. Spots influenced by the presence of B.cinerea in exponential and stationary phases were identified by MALDI-ToF. One hundred five and sixty spots of proteins were influenced by the presence of B.cinerea in exponential and stationary phase respectively. In exponential phase, influenced proteins were implicated in the different steps of the proteins biosynthesis: amino acid synthesis, translation or mRNA maturation and in energy synthesis. On the other hand, in stationary phase, influenced proteins were mainly implicated in energy metabolic pathway: glycolysis, alcoholic fermentation or gluconeogenesis. The presence of B.cinerea seemed to induce a slowdown in the metabolism of P.anomala without influenced its growth. Further studies have to be realized to understand the complexity of these modes of action. [less ▲]

The aphid Aphis gossypii Glover (Homoptera: Aphididae) is known as worldwide important pest. It causes serious injuries to crops, but is also able to feed on various cultivated and wild plants. Some programs are developped to control this aphid. In many studies , hoverfy Episyrphus balteatus De Geer (Diptera : Syrphidae) is used as an efficient and aphid specific predator in biological control systems. In this work, we study cotton aphid choice plant discrimination, the effect of host plants on its developpment(fecondity and mortality), and the E.balteatus foraging and oviposition behavior according aphid host plants. Biologic parameters were observed using various plant combinations. E.balteatus behavioral observations were conducted using the Noldus Observer v.5.0. A.gossypii makes discriminant choice of his hosts, with better preference on Cucurbita pepo L. (Cucurbitaceae) and Capsicum annuum L. (Solanaceae). Dacryodes edulis (G. Don) H.J. Lam. (Burseraceae) and Vicia faba L. (Fabaceae) are the midle choice while Hibiscus sabdariffa L. (Malvaceae) is less chosen. A.gossypii develops easily on C.pepo, and weakly on C.anuum, H.sabdariffa,and V.faba. D. edulis induces very high mortality to A.gossypii. According to E. balteatus behavior, A. gossypii is more attractive when infesting C .pepo and V.faba, less on H. sabdariffa. While non infested , the hoverfly more attractive plant is V.faba. Our results highlited the importance of interactions between aphids and their host plants and the prey-host influence on a specific aphid predatory hoverfy. Suitable ways in correlation with this work are to investigated to complete this study and perform aphids biological control. [less ▲]

Introduction From April 2011, the function of dialogue will receive a structural financial support for the mental health care in Belgium. This function will be partly built on the experience of the therapeutic projects “care networks”. This research work takes shape with the organisation of multidisciplinary meetings and dialogues around chronic and complex situations. Especially, the therapeutic project n°79 “disruptive children and adolescents behaviours from moderate to severe intensity” tends to provide tailor-made care and a better follow-up to these patients while maximizing complementarities between partners and avoiding as much as possible redundancy in care, help, support and supervision. Purpose To provide recommendations on the organization of consultation meetings and intersectorial collaboration. Methodology The therapeutic project n° 79 is aimed at children and adolescents aged 0 to 21, living in the province of Liège and showing a specific psychiatric pathology: conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. This project is based on an empirical approach. It consists in organising multidisciplinary meetings and dialogues concerning patients and their families, with the aim of a individualized follow-up. The device used in these meetings is the care plan. It allows structure the debates considering a general goal for the child and the specific aims of the different services. This personalized care plan provides network coordination to the child and his family and avoids any situation of mutual returns. It also increases the visibility of each other’s role within the care plan. Moreover, it results in the definition of a schedule and evaluation periods. Results The project has followed 59 users, 44% of whom were adolescents above the age of 12. In each situation, an agent has been chosen to follow the case. His role is to keep in touch with the user and to be the contact person with the different professionals. He is in charge of the organisation and the management of the meetings. The agent can come from any sector. Recommendations on this topic have been reported. Discussion/conclusion The experience of the therapeutic project n° 79 turned out to be highly fruitful. All the purposes focusing on the user and his family were achieved and there were also many positive interprofessional relationships and collaborative work. Multidisciplinary consultation meetings turned out to be an effective way to get to know partners and it gives a clear view of their respective services and care offers as well as their functioning. The method applied in our project appeared to facilitate collaborative working and coordination between professionals from various areas acting in the users’ own interests. [less ▲]
