Pursuing the study started by Rigo, Salimov and Vandomme, we use elementary number-theoretic techniques to characterize rotation words having a finite set of abelian returns to all prefixes. We also make the connection between the three gap theorem and the number of semi-abelian returns for Sturmian words, simplifying some arguments developed by Puzynina and Zamboni. [less ▲]

Using a custom-made numerical simulation tool, we performed a systematic study of the energy distribution of the interface trap density in a GeSn MOS structure and of their effect on the electrical characteristics such as C–V and impedance spectra. Interface traps with various densities of states and energies in the bandgap have been investigated and the application of the conductance method was assessed. Based on a theoretical analysis, we obtained, as key results, direct connections between microscopic parameters of the structures and experimentally accessible features of the simulated macroscopic quantities. A straightforward relationship between the interface state density and the peaks in the conductance response is also highlighted. The dependence of the peak characteristics on the trap states was identified, as well as the effects of traps extending over large energy ranges in the bandgap. [less ▲]

Corsica Island is a sub-basin of the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea, with hydrological features typical of both oligotrophic systems and eutrophic coastal zones. Phytoplankton assemblages in two coastal ecosystems of Corsica (the deep Bay of Calvi and the shallow littoral of Bastia) show contrasting patterns over a one-year cycle. In order to determine what drives these variations, seasonal changes in littoral phytoplankton are considered together with environmental parameters. Our methodology combined a survey of the physico-chemical structure of the subsurface water with a characterization of the phytoplankton community structure. Sampling provided a detailed record of the seasonal changes and successions that occur in these two areas. Results showed that the two sampled stations presented different phytoplankton abundance and distribution patterns, notably during the winter–spring bloom period. Successions in pico-, nano-, and microphytoplankton communities appeared mainly driven by differences in the ability to acquire nutrients, and in community-specific growth rates. Phytoplankton structure and dynamics are discussed in relation to available data on the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea. These results confirm that integrated monitoring of coastal areas is a requisite for gaining a proper understanding of marine ecosystems. [less ▲]

Mineral fillers can be defined as “inert materials included in a mix design for some useful purpose”. They can be added to compounds in order to complete a large variety of final properties without increasing costs or to improve specific characteristics like hardness, brittleness, impact strength, compressive strength, softening point, fire resistance, surface texture, electrical conductivity, …etc. In Belgium, locally available limestone fillers are specifically very well-adapted for the optimisation of particle packing and flow behaviour of cementitious pastes in concrete mixes. Limestone fillers may be easily characterized in terms of chemical and mineralogical properties. These properties are fundamental for the study of the behaviour of concrete mixes in fresh state and for understanding interactions existing at the level of the Interfacial Transition Zone between aggregates and cement paste. These properties are however insufficiently discriminant and particle size, as well as shape distribution, seem to have a potential influence on physical phenomena which happen during the setting process. The aim of this paper is to compare five major techniques used to quantify the size and the shape of limestone fillers particles: laser diffraction scattering, wet sieving and image analysis for particle size measurement and BET adsorption and Blaine permeability methods for specific surface area.

Background: Ichthyosaurs are reptiles that inhabited the marine realm during most of the Mesozoic. Their Cretaceous representatives have traditionally been considered as the last survivors of a group declining since the Jurassic. Recently, however, an unexpected diversity has been described in Upper Jurassic–Lower Cretaceous deposits, but is widely spread across time and space, giving small clues on the adaptive potential and ecosystem control of the last ichthyosaurs. The famous but little studied English Gault Formation and ‘greensands’ deposits (the Upper Greensand Formation and the Cambridge Greensand Member of the Lower Chalk Formation) offer an unprecedented opportunity to investigate this topic, containing thousands of ichthyosaur remains spanning the Early–Late Cretaceous boundary. Methodology/Principal findings: To assess the diversity of the ichthyosaur assemblage from these sedimentary bodies, we recognized morphotypes within each type of bones. We grouped these morphotypes together, when possible, by using articulated specimens from the same formations and from new localities in the Vocontian Basin (France); a revised taxonomic scheme is proposed. We recognize the following taxa in the ‘greensands’: the platypterygiines ‘Platypterygius’ sp. and Sisteronia seeleyi gen. et sp. nov., indeterminate ophthalmosaurines and the rare incertae sedis Cetarthrosaurus walkeri. The taxonomic diversity of late Albian ichthyosaurs now matches that of older, well-known intervals such as the Toarcian or the Tithonian. Contrasting tooth shapes and wear patterns suggest that these ichthyosaurs colonized three distinct feeding guilds, despite the presence of numerous plesiosaur taxa. Conclusion/Significance: Western Europe was a diversity hot-spot for ichthyosaurs a few million years prior to their final extinction. By contrast, the low diversity in Australia and U.S.A. suggests strong geographical disparities in the diversity pattern of Albian–early Cenomanian ichthyosaurs. This provides a whole new context to investigate the extinction of these successful marine reptiles, at the end of the Cenomanian. [less ▲]

Les régions rurales du Sud du Sri Lanka sont soumises aujourd'hui à des tensions croissantes entre un développement économique précipité et la conservation des ressources naturelles qui participent à la renommée de l'île. Dans ce contexte, l'article se penche sur la question des initiatives locales de protection de la biodiversité à travers une étude de cas portant sur un projet de conservation des tortues de mer dans le district d'Hambantota (l'ONG-T). Dans une perspective d'anthropologie politique, l'analyse met en lumière la manière dont ce type de projet s'intègre et influence les structures sociopolitiques dans la société locale. Après avoir brièvement présenté quelques données contextuelles et historiques sur le village de pêcheurs dans laquelle est implantée l'ONG, l'étude de cas révèle les nouvelles formes d'interactions, les enjeux de pouvoirs et les conflits que peut susciter localement l'implantation de ce type de projet.

Water efficiency and productivity indicators are used in many scientific disciplines, usually to account for water losses that occur during its use, or products generated per unit of water consumed. The interpretation of these indicators is very diverse in the literature. However, the majority of definitions consider water efficiency as a measure of the effectiveness of irrigation, and view water productivity as a measure of the effectiveness of the physiological processes of both biomass production and crop yield formation, linked to the actual consumption of water by the crops. Thus, the consensus seems to be for water application efficiency (Ea) to be considered as the ratio of actual evapotranspiration to the water applied and productivity as the ratio of yield to actual evapotranspiration. The point of divergence relates fundamentally to the understanding of the constituent expressions of productivity (PE, product/“water consumed”) and efficiency of water application (Ea, “water consumed”/“applied water”). Indeed, the term “water consumed” is referred to variously by several authors as “actual evapotranspiration”, “gross irrigation plus rainfall”, “evapotranspiration plus water lost at the plot but beneficial to other users”, etc. Furthermore, while providing more details on the concepts of efficiency and water productivity, this review shows that the factors affecting these indicators have not yet been sufficiently elucidated. Thus, one of the axes of investigation could be to model the application efficiency of water firstly, according to water management practices and secondly, in terms of productivity levels in relation to the crop establishment period.
