Analizar las posibilidades que existen en un Espacio Habitado de Alto Valor Ecológico (EHAVE) para proponer el ecoturismo como un tipo de desarrollo sostenible y participativo y como una forma de valorización de la naturaleza y la cultura, requiere de un diagnóstico de los usos ancestrales y contemporáneos que las poblaciones locales hacen en el territorio. En la Vía Parque Isla de Salamanca las prácticas y los saberes de las poblaciones locales y de otros actores involucrados en el manejo del territorio pueden estar relacionadas o ir contraposición con la utilización turística del lugar, es por esta razón que intentamos conocerlas y mirar sus potencialidades culturales, sociales e institucionales, así como, analizar los escenarios de negociación y conflicto a los que se enfrenta un pretendido uso eco turístico del lugar. En este artículo se identifican tres usos del territorio que compiten con el uso turístico: subsistencia, investigación-conservación y explotación económica, cada uno de ellos es descrito y alternativamente relacionado con las actividades turísticas que se presentan en diferentes escenarios del parque natural que también son explicadas al detalle en la última sección del texto.

The Philippines is one of the most severely deforested countries in Southeast Asia with around 7 percent remaining forest in 2005. Moreover, due to its geographic circumstances, it is one of the most natural hazard prone countries in the world with frequent occurrence of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and typhoons, resulting notably in an increasing occurrence of landslides and flash floods. This work focuses on the North Negros Island and especially the recently proclaimed Northern Negros Natural Park (NNNP) that is considered the largest remaining evergreen forest in Negros Island and one of the largest in the Central Philippines. Deforestation continues to be a threat for this forest. The fact that this forest is located in mountainous area and that, due to a very high land pressure, people always creep higher to cultivate the steep slopes of these mountains, increase the landslide susceptibility associated with this deforestation. As an answer to that situation, this research aimed two main objectives. In a first time a land cover map was produced through digital classification of a 2003 SPOT 5 satellite image focusing on attempt for forest types differentiation in NNNP. Given that conventional method using spectral characteristics of the image revealed to be unsuccessful for this differentiation, this was finally achieved with the use of elevation and the distance to river as classifiers. The land cover map produced has an overall accuracy of 89,2 %. In a second time, a Landslide Susceptibility Zonation (LSZ) model was designed and implemented in a Geographical Information System (GIS) environment. The nine selected landslide-controlling factors were built from raw data and then combined through Weighted Linear Combination (WLC).Two scenarios corresponding to a “stable forest scenario” and a “deforestation scenario” were modeled. The integration of the land cover map previously produced served successfully as the key factor that enabled to model the Landslide Susceptibility (LS) change due to potential deforestation in NNNP. A sensitivity analysis of the factors used for this modeling was realized by comparison with a “LSZ in case of deforestation” map based on the four main factors only (land cover, land cover change, slope and proximity to river). It appeared that, the LSZ model was not sensitive to the use of other factors than these four main ones. Finally, in order to give an idea of the reliability of the results, the LSZ maps were compared with a landslide inventory realized during the field survey in North Negros. Some limitations in the landslide inventory did not allow drawing pertinent conclusion from this comparison. In parallel and in order to evaluate the feasibility of integrating the land cover knowledge of local environmentalist into a GIS data base through field survey and 3D-GIS activity in a remote laboratory, a participatory 3D-GIS experience was attempted in Negros. Consistence of results between field and 3D-GIS laboratory experience validate this way of extracting land cover information, which could revealed useful for land cover identification of hardly accessible areas.

The variability of HD 239276 was suspected photometrically nearly twenty years ago, but was confirmed with new observations obtained in 2001 during a two-site photometric campaign carried out from Spain, in uvbybeta Strömgren-Crawford photometry, and China, using the Johnson V filter. Two low-dispersion spectra were also collected. The results establish this star as a new multiperiodic gamma Dor-type pulsator with deficiency in metallicity. Its possible lambda Boo nature is discussed. The frequency analysis shows three pulsational frequencies as significant, but some more are probably present among the residuals. The method based on phase shifts and amplitude ratios in multicolour photometry is used to identify the excited modes with non-adiabatic time-dependent convection models. A very good agreement between the theoretical and observed amplitude ratios is obtained and the two main modes are identified as l=1 modes. Nevertheless, our results do not allow us to discriminate between a solar abundance and a metal deficient nature for this star. The frequency ratio method is further used for the identification of the modes. The results suggest low metallicity for this star, but a lambda Boo nature may be not ruled out. [less ▲]

CONTEXT: Familial pituitary adenomas occur rarely in the absence of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) and Carney complex (CNC). OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to characterize the clinical and genealogical features of non-MEN1/CNC familial isolated pituitary adenomas (FIPA). DESIGN AND SETTING: We conducted a retrospective study of clinical and genealogical characteristics of FIPA cases and performed a comparison with a sporadic population at 22 university hospitals in Belgium, Italy, France, and The Netherlands. RESULTS: Sixty-four FIPA families including 138 affected individuals were identified [55 prolactinomas, 47 somatotropinomas, 28 nonsecreting adenomas (NS), and eight ACTH-secreting tumors]. Cases were MEN1/PRKAR1A-mutation negative. First-degree relationships predominated (75.6%) among affected individuals. A single tumor phenotype occurred in 30 families (homogeneous), and heterogeneous phenotypes occurred in 34 families. FIPA cases were younger at diagnosis than sporadic cases (P = 0.015); tumors were diagnosed earlier in the first vs. the second generation of multigenerational families. Macroadenomas were more frequent in heterogeneous vs. homogeneous FIPA families (P = 0.036). Prolactinomas from heterogeneous families were larger and had more frequent suprasellar extension (P = 0.004) than sporadic cases. Somatotropinomas occurred as isolated familial somatotropinoma cases and within heterogeneous FIPA families; isolated familial somatotropinoma cases represented 18% of FIPA cases and were younger at diagnosis than patients with sporadic somatotropinomas. Familial NS cases were younger at diagnosis (P = 0.03) and had more frequently invasive tumors (P = 0.024) than sporadic cases. CONCLUSIONS: Homogeneous and heterogeneous expression of prolactinomas, somatotropinomas, NS, and Cushing's disease can occur within families in the absence of MEN1/CNC. FIPA and sporadic cases have differing clinical characteristics. FIPA may represent a novel endocrine neoplasia classification that requires further genetic characterization. [less ▲]

For the author, the landscape and the park are open books, evidence of historical traces, intentions and languages showing the evolution of the notion of citizenship. It shows that the latter currently suffers from the inability to project into the future. The path to citizenship therefore requires the return to a citizen project expressing intentions and cultural willingness. [less ▲]
