Insect pests are responsible, among other factors, for reducing the productivity of crops. While chemical insecticides used to control them cause harmful effects on human health and the environment, conservation biological control, i.e. managing habitats in agricultural landscapes to support pest natural enemies, turns out to be a promising approach. Moreover, the decline of pollinators in agricultural areas is observed since a few decades, being partly due to the intensification of agriculture which homogenizes and degrades agricultural landscape. To reduce the detrimental effects of agricultural intensification on biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services, farmers have the opportunity to adopt agri-environmental measures. Among them, the establishment of flower strips, with a recognized interest in biological control and the conservation of pollinators, is proposed. However, their establishment is not systematically efficient and profitable for the farmers. Adapting mixture composition to farmer’s need may encourage their adoption. Thus, the research project has a double goals (i) to provide intercropping flower strips for promoting the attraction of beneficial insects against pests and for promoting pollinators diversity; and (ii) to suggests diversification of farm income by planting monospecific oilseed flower strips.

Gammaherpèsviruses are important pathogens in human medicine. Indeed, Epstein Barr virus and Kaposi Sarcoma associated herpesvirus are responsible for numerous lymphoproliferative diseases and cancers. Murid Herpesvirus-4 (MuHV-4) is usually used as a model for human gammaherpèsviruses. Until now, the major limitation of this model was the absence of transmission in laboratory animals. Recently, a sexual transmission of MuHV-4 has been described in laboratory mice. This observation allows, on the one hand, to study mechanisms underlying natural transmission, such as cellular trospism, importance of viral proteins, or immunity response during this part of the cycle. On the other hand, this transmission model allows to test efficiency of measures to reduce transmission. Indeed, herpesvirus are archetype of persistant viruses as infection persists lifelong once established. Studying mechanisms underlying transmission and how to use these mechanisms to reduce it efficiently is therefore of primordial importance. In a first study, we focussed on the biological relevance of mechanisms described previously in vitro. Indeed, a MuHV-4 glycoprotein, gp150, has been shown to participate to the release of infectious particles from cells and to evasion of humoral immunity, two functions that could be important for the virus during transmission. Our results showed that gp150 is essential for an efficient sexual transmission of the MuHV-4. Indeed, gp150 promotes the release of infectious particles from infected vaginal epithelial cells. These results has been published in Journal of Virology in July 2017. In a second study, the same model was used to test efficiency of an antiviral molecule to reduce sexual transmission of the MuHV-4. A nucleotide analogue, the cidofovir, was administrated to mice according to different protocols. A daily administration of cidofovir reduced drastically genital shedding, but also prevent completely infection of naive mice after sexual contact. Finally, a single injection of cidofovir, administered 24 hours after sexual contact, reduced significantly transmission. Altogether, in this work, we used a transmission model of a gammaherpèsvirus in two differents studies: the first foccused on glycoprotein implicated during the transmission and established the importance of a single viral glycoprotein for an efficient transmission. The second study highlighted the efficiency of antiviral drugs to prevent infection by gammaherpesviruses. [less ▲]

La fin du désir sexuel pour son conjoint, ou son émoussement, expliqueraient, motiveraient ou justifieraient l’infidélité conjugale. La fidélité durerait le temps de l’amour, le temps des émois (inter)individuels. À la lecture du Grand résumé que Marie-Carmen nous propose, il semble bien que les choses ne sont pas aussi simples que cela. L’abondance des déclinaisons thématiques des amours infidèles et le foisonnement des concepts mobilisés ne peuvent laisser indifférent : il y est question de socialisation, d’identités, d’expérience, de parcours, d’engagement, de marché sexuel ou amoureux, de genre, de secret, de morale, d’éthique, de domination, de violence symbolique, de ressources, etc. [less ▲]

On entend souvent dire que la danse n’a rien à voir avec les images, qu’elle ne produit pas de symboles, et qu’elle échappe au régime de la représentation. On sait ce qui justifie cette idée : la danse serait la présentation même du mouvement, de sa puissance intrinsèque, autrement dit le mouvement exécuté plutôt que représenté. Or, quand bien même on s’accorderait sur l’idée que la danse n’illustre rien, cela ne veut pas dire pour autant qu’elle ne créée pas d’alliances avec le monde des images. La rencontre autour de « Therians » offrira l’occasion de rendre visibles les ressources très stimulantes offertes par la théorie de l’image pour un savoir du mouvement. Dialoguant ici avec deux spécialistes du cinéma, Louise Vanneste pourra déplier les dispositifs visuels expérimentés dans son travail (montage, contrastes/contacts, cadre, métamorphoses, hybridité, etc.).

The design, synthesis and electrochemical characterization of new electrode materials hold the key for fundamental advances in energy conversion and storage technologies. Polyanionic compounds have been heavily investigated as possible electrode materials in lithium- and sodium-ion cells. This thesis focused on the design, synthesis, size and morphology tailoring of iron phosphate based electrode materials in order to enhance their electrochemical properties. Four iron phosphate-based electrode materials classified in three groups: Na2Mn1.5Fe1.5(PO4)3, NaxMxFe(3-X)(PO4)3 (X=1.25 when M=Ni and x=1.5 for M= Mn) and Fe1.19(PO4)(OH)0.57(H2O)0.43, were investigated in this work. All these compounds were obtained through wet chemical (hydrothermal or solvothermal) synthesis routes. The preparation protocols and characterization techniques to study the structural, particle size, morphological and electrochemical properties of the above materials have been discussed in the following chapters. Sodium manganese iron phosphate alluaudite structure is one of the studied compounds group. Na2Mn1.5Fe1.5(PO4)3 is obtained via one step hydrothermal synthesis reaction and it was electrochemically studied without any other further heat treatment. NaxMxFe(3-X)(PO4)3 (X=1.25 for M=Ni and x=1.5 for M= Mn) compounds were obtained through solvothermal method in ethylene glycol. Na1.25Ni1.25Fe1.75(PO4)3 is a new material. Both materials have been electrochemically characterized for the first time in this work. Fe1.19(PO4)(OH)0.57(H2O)0.43 was obtained by modifying conventional hydrothermal synthesis of this materials by the addition of conducting carbon (carbon black and carbon nanotubes) in the precursors solution during synthesis that enhance its electrochemical properties as described in this thesis. The Li-ion intercalation reaction mechanisms in Fe1.19(PO4)(OH)0.57(H2O)0.43 cathode material were also investigated by using operando XRD and Mössbauer spectroscopy techniques. The above studies of iron phosphate-based polyanionics as electrode materials in alkali metal-ion batteries show that this group may be the right key in replacing current commercial unsafe electrode materials. The possibility of improving alternative soft chemical synthesis methods to design new materials or improving electrochemical performance of existing electrode materials was also explored here. The roadmap for our current and future work has been proposed, the materials of our future interest have been chosen basing on their promising rich crystal structure and electrochemical properties by comparing them with the studied materials.

À quoi servent les œuvres d'art si elles n'ont plus seulement vocation à être "belles" ? Quelle incidence peuvent-elles avoir sur la vie politique et sociale ? Dans le domaine de l'art, on a traditionnellement défini la marge par des catégories dont les contours sont parfois discutés : art brut, art différencié, art outsider, etc. Poser la question de la marge, c'est poser la question de sa porosité au monde dit "normal". Cette séance donnera l'occasion de réfléchir aux liens de l'art avec des trajectoires humaines différentes mais aussi avec la dimension non-professionnelle du geste de créer. Comment l'amateur ou l'autodidacte nous apprend-il quelque chose de ce qu'on appelle l'art ? On pourra notamment relire les textes de Dubuffet et les discuter au regard d'artistes qui nous bouleversent. [less ▲]
