The paper explores the textual and visual evidence from the Hellenistic Eastern Mediterranean concerning the use of incense in the ritual practice for Hellenistic political leaders. Focus is placed on the role played by incense in the construction of the religious experience of cults for human beings, with particular attention to 1) the interaction between incense burning and other ritual actions; 2) the role of incense in articulating the relationship between old (host) and new (guest) recipients of cult in specific contexts, and 3) the role of incense in Greek and non-Greek contexts of cult for rulers.

This paper aims at validating pressure and velocity measurements conducted in two physical scale models of an ogee spillway crest operating at heads largely greater than the design head. The design head of the second model is 50% smaller than the one of the first model. No pier effect or air venting is considered in the study. The velocity field is measured by Bubbles Image Velocimetry. The relative pressure along the spillway crest is measured using pressure sensors. Comparison of measured velocities between both spillways indicates low scale effects, the scaled-profiles collapsing in most parts of the flow. By contrast, measurements of relative pressure along the spillway crest differ for large heads. A theoretical velocity profile based on potential flow theory and expressed in a curvilinear reference frame is fitted to the velocity measurements, considered as reference, for extrapolating the velocity at the spillway crest. Comparing the extrapolated velocity at the spillway crest and the velocity calculated from the relative pressure considering a potential flow finally emphasizes that bottom pressure amplitudes seem overestimated for the larger spillway, while an averaging effect might operate for the pressure measurements on the smaller spillway.

Over the years, polymer analyses using ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS) measurements have been performed on different ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) setups. In order to be able to compare literature data taken on different IM(-MS) instruments, ion heating and ion temperature evaluations have already been explored. Nevertheless, extrapolations to other analytes are difficult and thus straightforward same-sample instrument comparisons seem to be the only reliable way to make sure that the different IM(-MS) setups do not greatly change the gas phase behavior. We used a large range of degrees of polymerization (DP) of poly(ethylene oxide) PEO homopolymers to measure IMS drift times on three different IM-MS setups: a homemade drift tube (DT), a trapped (TIMS) and a travelling wave (T-Wave) IMS setup. The drift time evolutions were followed for increasing polymer DPs (masses) and charge states and they are found to be comparable and reproducible on the three instruments. [less ▲]

Fishways are installed worldwide to facilitate accessibility to functional habitats and to increase the ecological continuity of rivers. Their evaluations are increasing, but complete studies in the field with wild individuals are still scarce. In the lower Bocq River (Belgium), a pool type fishway was installed in 2011. A combined passive‐integrated‐transponder‐tag and radio‐telemetry system was designed and installed downstream of the dam and in the fishway to analyse fine‐scale individual fish behaviour. Three fish species (brown trout, European grayling, and barbel) were captured in the river; n = 125 fish were tagged and released downstream of the fishway. Behavioural metrics were proposed and used in order to attain a comprehensive view on the efficiency of the fishway, including attraction and entrance efficiency, searching and passage delays, and overall and adjusted passage efficiency. The results indicate a major problem in terms of attraction efficiency (48.9% for the trout, 20.5% for the grayling, and 41.2% for the barbel) and time to find the entrance of the fishway (mean 65.1 hr for the trout and 538.9 r for the grayling). For fish that succeed to approach the entrance of the fishway, the passage efficiency was 86.9% for the trout, 55.5% for the grayling, and 7.1% for the barbel. The time taken to cross the structure was reasonable for the salmonids (mean < 1.5 hr for trout and grayling) but very long (21 hr) for the barbel. Our results underline the necessity of a holistic approach to evaluate fishway efficiency using precise comprehensive metrics and hydraulic characterization. [less ▲]

Throughout their lives, fish accomplish frequent movements between functional habitats that are often triggered by environmental signals. We aimed to determine if rheophilic cyprinids (barbel, Barbus barbus and chub Squalius cephalus), living in different places of the same river basin, may develop similar movement periodicities and react identically to environmental cues to carry out their spawning migration. We used the capture data of three modern fish passes that were monitored continuously during three consecutive years (2010 to 2012) in three rivers of the Meuse basin in Belgium. We captured 418 individuals at adult stage, and the capture number per species was greater (80%) in spring (during the spawning migration period). The spawning migration of the barbel occurred earlier (median = 122nd day of the year) and at lower temperatures (median = 14.5°C) in the lowland rivers compared to the upland river (140th day of the year and 18.4°C). For the barbel, migration initiation differed depending on the river but finished under similar environmental conditions. In contrast, for the chub, no significant difference between rivers was observed regarding spawning migration periodicity and environmental cues. Within the same river basin, rheophilic cyprinids demonstrate flexibility in their responses to environmental variables and may optimise the start date of migration to spawning grounds depending on their local environment and individual experiences. This phenomenon was more pronounced in the barbel, which has more specific ecological requirements. [less ▲]

Organisms with complex life cycles are characterized by a metamorphosis that allows for a major habitat shift and the exploitation of alternative resources. However, metamorphosis can be bypassed in some species through a process called paedomorphosis, resulting in the retention of larval traits at the adult stage and is considered important at both micro- and macroevolutionary scales. In facultatively paedomorphic populations of newts, some individuals retain gills and a fully aquatic life at the adult stage (paedomorphs), while others undergo complete metamorphosis (metamorphs), allowing for a terrestrial life-stage. Because facultative paedomorphosis affects trophic structures and feeding mechanism of newts, one hypothesis is that it may be maintained as a trophic polymorphism, with the advantage to lessen intraspecific competition during the shared aquatic life-stage. Here, we tested this hypothesis combining stomach content data with stable isotope techniques, using carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes, in facultatively paedomorphic alpine newts Ichthyosaura alpestris. Both stomach content and stable isotope analyses showed that paedomorphs had smaller trophic niches and were more reliant on pelagic resources, while metamorphs relied more on littoral resources, corresponding to a polyphenism along the littoral-pelagic axis and the extension of the population's trophic niche to otherwise ‘underused’ pelagic resources by paedomorphs. Interestingly, stable isotopes revealed that the trophic polyphenism was less marked in males than in females and potentially linked to sexual activity. Although paedomorphosis and metamorphosis are primarily seen as results of tradeoffs between the advantages of using aquatic versus terrestrial habitats, this study provides evidence that additional forces, such as intraspecific trophic niche differences between morphs and trophic niche expansion, may play an important role in the persistence of this dimorphism in heterogeneous environments. Moreover, the different patterns found in males and females show the importance of considering sex to understand the evolutionary ecology of trophic polymorphisms. [less ▲]

Introduction: Given that recent research has shown that functional connectivity is not a static phenomenon, we aim to investigate the dynamic properties of the default mode network’s (DMN) connectivity in patients with disorders of consciousness. Methods: Resting-state fMRI volumes of a convenience sample of 17 patients in unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS) and controls were reduced to a spatiotemporal point process by selecting critical time points in the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). Spatial clustering was performed on the extracted PCC time frames to obtain 8 different co-activation patterns (CAPs). We investigated spatial connectivity patterns positively and negatively correlated with PCC using both CAPs and standard stationary method. We calculated CAPs occurrences and the total number of frames. Results: Compared to controls, patients showed (i) decreased within-network positive correlations and between-network negative correlations, (ii) emergence of “pathological” within-network negative correlations and between-network positive correlations (better defined with CAPs), and (iii) “pathological” increases in within-network positive correlations and between-network negative correlations (only detectable using CAPs). Patients showed decreased occurrence of DMN-like CAPs (1–2) compared to controls. No between-group differences were observed in the total number of frames Conclusion: CAPs reveal at a more fine-grained level the multifaceted spatial connectivity reconfiguration following the DMN disruption in UWS patients, which is more complex than previously thought and suggests alternative anatomical substrates for consciousness. BOLD fluctuations do not seem to differ between patients and controls, suggesting that BOLD response represents an intrinsic feature of the signal, and therefore that spatial configuration is more important for consciousness than BOLD activation itself.

Les programmes de mobilité étudiante Erasmus constituent un terrain privilégié pour la mise en place d’une éducation plurilingue et pluriculturelle. En effet, l’immersion linguistique et culturelle liée à la mobilité serait l’occasion de développer chez l’étudiant Erasmus des attitudes plus tolérantes vis-à-vis des langues et des locuteurs dans leur diversité. Nous proposons dans ce chapitre d’interroger ce postulat à la lumière d’un corpus d’entretiens menés entre septembre 2010 et juin 2012 avec des étudiants en séjour Erasmus à l’Université de Liège (Belgique francophone). Nous interrogerons le rapport aux langues de ces étudiants, prétendument plus souple vis-à-vis des normes, moins contraignant pour les échanges, en accord avec une vision plurilingue qui se veut plus laxiste vis-à-vis de la maitrise linguistique, en rupture avec le modèle du bilingue parfait qui a longtemps été la norme dominante dans l’enseignement-apprentissage des langues. On peut supposer cependant que le discours normatif, fondé sur des principes de correction et de perfection qui rendent légitime la pratique d’un certain standard linguistique, véhicule des principes susceptibles d’entrer en conflit avec certaines caractéristiques de la compétence plurilingue, telles que le caractère partiel et imparfait des compétences, ou le principe de déséquilibre ordinaire de ces compétences. Dans un premier temps, nous rappellerons les grands principes du plurilinguisme tel qu’il est conceptualisé dans les textes diffusés par le Conseil de l’Europe ; nous verrons ensuite dans quelle mesure les étudiants Erasmus que nous avons interrogés développent une conscience de leur(s) compétence(s) en phase avec ces principes. Pour ce faire, nous utiliserons les notions de sociotype, posture et identification. [less ▲]

La notion de posture peut-elle devenir un outil conceptuel pour la didactique des langues ? Et si l’on défend cette hypothèse, quelle serait sa fonction heuristique ? Notre réflexion se veut d’abord épistémologique, autour d’une notion que l’on peut qualifier de « carrefour » ou « nomade » de par son caractère transdisciplinaire. Nous reviendrons d’abord sur les travaux en sociologie de la littérature, en analyse du discours et en didactique des langues (du français en particulier) qui ont sollicité la notion. Dans un second temps, nous définirons ce que nous entendons par « posture » et ses éléments constitutifs, partant de l’exemple du discours métalinguistique ordinaire et du rapport à la langue. À partir de l’analyse d’une entrevue menée avec une étudiante à propos de son expérience d’études en Belgique francophone et de ses représentations sur la langue française, nous montrerons : sur quels indices (linguistiques et énonciatifs notamment) le chercheur peut s’appuyer pour analyser les postures ; ce qu’elles nous disent du rapport à la langue des sujets parlants ; et comment l’étude des postures peut servir la didactique des langues, en particulier du français langue étrangère.

The whitemouth croaker, Micropogonias furnieri, is a long-lived fish of high commercial importance in the Western Atlantic Ocean. Here, we used stable isotope ratios of carbon, sulfur and nitrogen and isotopic niche metrics (SIBER) to study feeding habits and track habitat use by whitemouth croakers in Guanabara Bay, an estuary in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. Our results highlighted size-related habitat segregation, with small juvenile (< 30 cm) fishes residing mostly inside estuaries, while large adult (> 60 cm) fishes feed mainly in Continental Shelf (CS) waters. Medium adult fishes (30-60 cm) appear to feed in multiple coastal and CS habitats. Moreover, their feeding ecology showed strong temporal differences, linked with seasonal and, to a lesser extent, inter-annual variation in oceanographic features of the ecosystem in which they live. Overall, these differences in ecological features suggest that (1) adult and juvenile whitemouth croakers should be treated as different components of the food web and (2) the conservation of these habitats should be prioritized to better manage and sustain the coastal fisheries in Guanabara Bay.
