L'inhibition, une composante des fonctions exécutives, est souvent considérée comme requérant un haut niveau d'attention. Cependant, certaines études ont montré, par l'utilisation de tâche d'amorçage subliminal, que l'inhibition pouvait agir de manière totalement inconsciente. Ainsi, les auteurs de ces études en ont conclu qu'il existait plusieurs composantes de l'inhibition, notamment une composante intentionnelle et une composante non-intentionnelle. Par ailleurs, Nassauer & Halperin (2003) ont montré qu'il existait également plusieurs composantes de l'inhibition intentionnelle, notamment une composante motrice et une composante perceptive. Germain & Collette (2008), sur base de ces travaux, ont montré qu'il existerait une dédifférenciation de l'inhibition perceptive et motrice dans le vieillissement normal, et donc que ces deux capacités auraient tendance à dépendre, chez les personnes âgées, de ressources cognitives communes. L'étude menée dans le cadre de ce mémoire a tenté de combiner les paradigmes expérimentaux des études précitées afin d'explorer les aspects intentionnels et non-intentionnels des capacités d'inhibition motrice et perceptive dans le vieillissement normal. Au travers de nos résultats, nous n'avons pu reproduire les observations effectuées par Germain & Collette à un niveau intentionnel. Par ailleurs, nous avons observé une relative préservation des capacités d'inhibition non-intentionnelle chez les sujets âgés, bien que ces derniers semblent capables de ne traiter qu'un nombre plus limité d'informations subliminales par rapport aux sujets jeunes.

The European Nitrate Directive (91/676/CEE) aims at moderating or preventing water pollution from nitrates released by agricultural practices. The Belgian Walloon region transposed it into law and initiated a Sustainable Nitrogen Management Program in 2002 (also called PGDA in French). The non-profit association NITRAWAL amongst others, is in charge of providing support to farmers to implement and respect this program. GRENeRA is one of the organizations designated for scientific studies. In this frame, GRENeRA and its partners implemented six lysimeters in agricultural open fields, operated under real conditions of industrial harvest crops, especially vegetables. The lysimeters are used as follow up tools to monitor and quantify the amount of nitrates leaching beyond the root zone towards underground water reserves. This study demonstrates that lysimeters are efficient and permit the collection of representative samples of seepage water. On a quality stand point, nitrate content combined with data related to agricultural practices, fertilisation rates applied and advised, climate, the defined environmental indicator (APL) provide a global approach to link agricultural practices and underground water protection from nitrate pollution. The lysimeters validate the reliability of the environmental indicator (APL) with the nitrate content in leaching water, which will not be uptaken by the next crop. Unfortunately, it is also demonstrated that even when the nitrogen management is respectful of the current legislation, the goal to comply with the targeted standards of water quality is not ensured. The lysimeter tool clearly show that the respect of seepage water quality standards issued from industrial agriculture does not have to be considered per crop but rather from an integrated and global perspective of the complete crop sequence and rotations, in respect with best agricultural practices, reasonable fertilisation rates, inset crops, etc., for each individual crop being part of the overall rotation. Some favourable and non favourable crop sequences with respect to nitrates content of underground water are summarized. Experiments are in progress on crop sequence evaluation and fertilisation levels and recommendations for Belgian Walloon industrial crops and their associated impacts on the leaching water quality and nitrate content collected by lysimeters.

Japanese knotweed Fallopia japonica is an extremely abundant invasive plant in Belgium and surrounding countries. To date, no eradication method is available for managers facing the invasion of this rhizomatous plant. We tested different chemical herbicides and two application methods (spraying and stem injection), as well as mechanical treatments, on Fallopia clones throughout southern Belgium. The tested methods were selected to be potentially usable by Belgian managers, e.g. using legally accepted rates for herbicides. Stem volume, height and density reduction was assessed after one or two years depending on the treatment. No tested method allowed a complete eradication of the clone. However, stem injection with glyphosate-based herbicide caused the highest damage. The year following injection, no sprouts were observed. Two following year, however, stunted shoots sprouted. Among mechanical control measures, repeated cuts combined with native trees cuttings plantations most appreciably reduced knotweed development. The most efficient methods we tested appear as tools for curbing knotweed invasion but are not likely to be used to eradicate the species. As such they should be included in a more integrated control strategy, together with prevention and public awareness campaigns. [less ▲]

In recent decades, a growing number of studies have addressed connections between ecological and evolutionary concepts in biologic invasions. These connections may be crucial for understanding the processes underlying invaders’ success. However, the extent to which scientists have worked on the integration of the ecology and evolution of invasive plants is poorly documented, as few attempts have been made to evaluate these efforts in invasion biology research. Such analysis can facilitate recognize well-documented relationships and identify gaps in our knowledge. In this study, we used a network-based method for visualizing the connections between major aspects of ecology and evolution in the primary research literature. Using the family Poaceae as an example, we show that ecological concepts were more studied and better interconnected than were evolutionary concepts. Several possible connections were not documented at all, representing knowledge gaps between ecology and evolution of invaders. Among knowledge gaps, the concepts of plasticity, gene flow, epigenetics and human influence were particularly under-connected. We discuss five possible research avenues to better understand the relationships between ecology and evolution in the success of Poaceae, and of alien plants in general. [less ▲]

In the framework of the disposal of short-lived low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste in a near-surface disposal facility in Dessel, Belgium, additional extensive site characterization has been performed in 2008. The gathered data now enclose 388 hydraulic conductivity measurements on samples of 8 cored boreholes. Secondary information as grain size analysis, porosity, and borehole geophysical parameters was also gathered. In addition, the geology of the study area has also been thoroughly characterized by a set of 178 cone penetration tests (CPTs) to approximate 50 m depth. This dataset allowed to refine the hydrostratigraphical model of the region. The existing groundwater model, based on large-scale effective hydraulic properties, was updated accordingly. The next step is a small-scale probabilistic approach 1) to validate the current existing deterministic groundwater models and 2) to support design for a monitoring network. In preparation for stochastic realizations of the subsurface, a geostatistical analysis of the available primary and secondary data is performed. [less ▲]

Thin irregularly-shaped surfaces such as clay drapes often have a major control on flow and transport in heterogeneous porous media. Clay drapes are often complex curvilinear 3-dimensional surfaces and display a very complex spatial distribution. Variogram-based stochastic approaches are often also not able to describe the spatial distribution of clay drapes since complex, curvilinear, continuous and interconnected structures cannot be characterized using only two-point statistics. Multiple-point geostatistics aims to overcome the limitations of the variogram. The premise of multiple-point geostatistics is to move beyond two-point correlations between variables and to obtain (cross) correlation moments at three or more locations at a time using "training images" to characterize the patterns of geological heterogeneity. Multiple-point geostatistics is able to reproduce thin irregularly-shaped surfaces such as clay drapes but is often computationally intensive. To capture the thin surfaces, a small grid cell size should be adopted for the training image. This results in large training images and a large search template size and thus a large CPU and RAM demand (Huysmans and Dassargues, 2009). [less ▲]

Plant populations are expected to face gradual climatic variation in the next decades. Understanding and quantifying evolutionary and non-evolutionary mechanisms allowing populations response to climate is therefore crucial to anticipate the actual consequences of climate change on plants. However, studying the direct effects of climate change in wild populations is of little anticipating interest… there invasive plants can help! We studied the sources of phenotypic variation in populations that gradually invaded different climatic zones over the last century, and assessed the role of local adaptation, non-adaptive genetic differentiation, phenotypic plasticity and environmental maternal effects in plant population response to climate.

In the future, virtual networks will be allocated, maintained and managed much like clouds offering flexibility, extensibility and elasticity with resources acquired for a limited time and even on a lease basis. Adaptive provisioning is required to maintain virtual network topologies, comply with established contracts, expand initial allocations on demand, release resources no longer useful, optimise resource utilisation and respond to anomalies, faults and evolving demands. In this paper, we elaborate on adaptive virtual resource provisioning to maintain virtual networks, allocated initially on demand, in response to a virtual network creation request. We propose a distributed fault-tolerant embedding algorithm, which relies on substrate node agents to cope with failures and severe performance degradation. This algorithm coupled with dynamic resource binding is integrated and evaluated within a medium-scale experimental infrastructure. [less ▲]
