This study examines the potential effects of a new micro hydroelectric power plant (MHPP) on the behaviour (habitat use, movements) and population abundance of European grayling (T. thymallus) and brown trout (S. trutta) in the Lhomme (Belgian Ardennes). Thirteen grayling and five brown trout were captured before their spawning period and were manually radio-tracked up to 6 times a week. Population density and biomass were estimated into two different sampling sectors with electric fishing, before and after the MHPP started up. The mobility patterns of grayling and trout in the reach of the river Lhomme influenced by the MHPP strongly contrasted with results obtained in an undisturbed river of the same type in the Belgian Ardennes. Movements were mostly restricted and rarely increased during the spawning period. Spawning took place, but was disturbed by hydropeakings. The population biomass of grayling and trout decreased by 61 % and 23 % respectively, five months after the start-up of the MHPP exploitation. [less ▲]

Glutathione S-transferases (GST) play an important role in the detoxification of many substances including organic pollutants and plant secondary metabolites. We compared the GST of two syrphid species, the aphidophagous Syrphus ribesii and the saprophagous Myathropa florea to assess the relation between feeding type and GST patterns. Differences between the GST of the hoverfly species were observed after purification by affinity chromatography, SDS-PAGE and kinetic studies. While the specific activities of the purified enzymes were different, the purification yields were similar. The variation in specific activities was related to the presence of different isoenzymes in both syrphid species by SDS-PAGE. While two bands of 24 and 32 kDa were observed for M. florea, one more band of 26 kDa was present in S. ribesii. When a range of substrate and glutathione concentrations was tested, differences in Km and Vmax between the glutathione S-transferases from both hoverfly species were also observed. These results are discussed in terms of adaptations to the feeding habit and the habitat of the two syrphid species. [less ▲]

a new methodology to model the electromechanical behavior of microscale system components is presented. The original approach proposed in this paper is based on a unified FE formulation of the strong electromechanical interaction problem, in which both the electric and the mechanical fields are considered simultaneously. To this aim, finite elements based on the Mindlin shell theory are implemented. In order to illustrate the proposed methodology, numerical results are presented on the modelling and simulation of microscale electromechanical switches and microscale pump actuators. [less ▲]

In this study, the seismic design and performance of composite steel-concrete frames are studied. The new Eurocode 4 and Eurocode 8, which are in a preliminary stage at the moment, are employed for the design of six composite steel-concrete frames. The deficiencies of the codes and the clauses that cause difficulties to the designer are discussed. The inelastic static pushover analysis is employed for obtaining the response of the frames and the overstrength factors. The evaluation of the response modification factor takes place by performing incremental time-history analysis up to the satisfaction of the yield and collapse limit states in order to investigate the conservatism of the code. The last purpose of this study is to investigate if elastically designed structures can behave in a dissipative mode. [less ▲]

Les Iris Oncocycles libanais sont des espèces montagnardes, endémiques et menacées. Dans un cadre général de mise au point d’une stratégie de conservation, le système reproducteur et le système de pollinisation de ces végétaux ont été caractérisés. L’essentiel des observations a porté sur une espèce type : Iris cedretii Dinsmore ex Chaudhary, dont deux populations distinctes ont été répertoriées. Des observations complémentaires ont été faites sur une population d’Iris sofarana subsp. kasruwana Dinsmore ex Chaudhary. Les Oncocycles libanais sont des végétaux allogames stricts, et la fleur est réceptive pendant cinq jours, au plus. Des séances d’observation et de récoltes entomologiques ont été effectuées de jour, par différentes conditions climatiques. Elles ont mis en évidence le rôle des abeilles mâles du genre Xylocopa dans la pollinisation, et le faible taux de visite global des Iris. Des séances d’échantillonnage au sein des fleurs, de jour et de nuit, ont permis de jauger l’importance du phénomène de refuge. Quantitativement, le refuge concerne surtout les abeilles mâles du genre Eucera, mais une faune diversifiée trouve abri dans les fleurs. Afin de comprendre plus précisément le phénomène, des observations matinales et des mesures de températures, notamment intra-florales, ont été menées. Des quantifications de pollen sur les insectes ont permis de valider le rôle de ceux-ci comme pollinisateurs. Les Iris Oncocycles libanais ont un système de pollinisation double. Il est basé, d’une part, sur les transfert polliniques dus au va-et-vient des réfugiés. D’autre part, des déplacements de pollen sont assurés par les Xylocopes, apparemment attirés au sein du tube floral par une tromperie sexuelle. Cette duperie fait intervenir la tache « onco », sur le labelle, qui est caractéristique de la section Oncocyclus. [less ▲]

This study investigated the phonological expressive disorders of Frenchspeaking children with SLI. The main goal of this paper was to confirm whether children with SLI have limitations in phonological ability even when they are compared with normally-developing children matched by MLU and phonemic inventory size. This was demonstrated by Bortoloni and Leonard (2000), Orsolini et coll. (2001), and Aguilar-Mediavilla et coll. (2002), which obtained the most detailed results in this direction, but it was never tested in French language. The second goal of the paper is to find out whether the characteristics of the French language are reflected in the nature of the children’s phonological disorder. In order to test this, the spontaneous language of 16 children with SLI and of 16 control children matched on MLU and phonemic inventory size (NLD group) was analysed using different measures bearing on utterances, words, syllables, or phonemes. In both SLI and NLD groups, the children were distributed in two different subgroups, on the basis of their MLU and phonemic inventory size. The results supported a specific limitation in the phonological abilities of French children with SLI, as was already demonstrated for English, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish-Catalan. However, two unexpected results were also obtained. Firstly, a significant difference between children with SLI and control children could only be found for older children (MLU above 3), not for younger children with MLU below 3. This was true for all measures. This finding stresses out the importance of having a development perspective and has to be confirmed with longitudinal design. Secondly, deficits were much more important at the phoneme level than at the syllable level. This can be explained by the fact that the French language has a very homogenous pronunciation of syllables, which makes them easier to segment. [less ▲]

When editing Medieval sources, one always encounters the same dilemma : how to make the text readable nowadays without spoiling its testimony ? « Cleaning » the text from all that makes it difficult to read for someone erases marks that would look valuable from another point of view. Hence, there is an unavoidable gap between the source and the edition. The Khartês project (which intends to edit and study original Old French charters written in Liège before 1300) has encountered this problem. Traditional « solutions » were inadequate and computers opened an interresting path. However, Khartês had to think about creating an encoding scheme that would suit its aim and remain easy to use. This is the way KML (the Khartês Markup Language, an XML-conformant language) was born, together with a small set of handy encoding rules. A wide range of applications are made possible. For instance, thanks to the way the corpus has been created, it has been possible to search a particular document for marked letters (which look like our uppercase letters) and to study them.
