This paper gives the results of the first census of trees in the 32.15 ha plot in order to provide tree species richness in Kibira rainforest (Burundi). All trees ≥ 10 cm dbh were permanently tagged and their girth measured. The forest structure pattern analysed were diameter at breast height (dbh), basal area, relative dominance, and relative density, Importance Value Index (IVI) and Family Importance Value (FIV). In total, 6504 trees representing 70 species, 67 genera and 37 families were recorded. Tree density was 202 stems/ha, with a basal area of 21.05m²/ha. Seventeen families were represented by a single species each, eleven families were represented by two species each, five families were represented by three species each, and four families were represented by four species each. The most important families in relation to FIV were Euphorbiaceae, Myrtaceae and Araliaceae. Macaranga kilimandscharica, Syzygium guineense and Polyscias fulva were the most important species in relation to IVI. Two tree species were found to be endemic to the Albertine Rift and one species probably endemic to the Albertine Rift. The Shannon-Weiner index (H') and eveness index (J') were respectively 3.18 and 0.75. This study provides a baseline for the management of Kibira National Park. As local communities still depend on forest resources, conservation awareness-raising and education actions have to focus in nearby villages, and growing some fast-growing native trees in the vicinity of the settlement, would be helpful for local communities, this would reduce their dependence on forest resources.

Rwanda. Through us, humanity (2005), a movie by Marie-France Collard, follows on from the play Rwanda 94, a project in which she tool part as a author and videographer. Showcased in 2000, the play arises questions about memory, representation, and commitment. The documentary was carried out during artist collective Groupov's tour in Kigaly on the occasion of the commemoration of the genocide's tenth anniversary. It brings those topics up again, gets back to the reception of the play by the Rwandan audience and, in a broader way, to a country in mourning. [less ▲]

Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinase C (ITPKC) is the last identified member of the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinases family which phosphorylates inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate into inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphate. Although expression and function of the two other family members ITPKA and ITPKB are rather well characterized, similar information is lacking for ITPKC. Here, we first defined the expression of Itpkc mRNA and protein in mouse tissues and cells using in situ hybridization and new antibodies. Surprisingly, we found that cells positive for ITPKC in the studied tissues express either a multicilium (tracheal and bronchial epithelia, brain ependymal cells), microvilli forming a brush border (small and large intestine, and kidney proximal tubule cells) or a flagellum (spermatozoa), suggesting a role for ITPKC either in the development or the function of these specialized cellular structures. Given this surprising expression, we then analyzed ITPKC function in multiciliated tracheal epithelial cells and sperm cells using our Itpkc knock-out mouse model. Unfortunately, no significant difference was observed between control and mutant mice for any of the parameters tested, leaving the exact in vivo function of this third Ins(1,4,5)P3 3-kinase still open.

Au cœur de l'espace de la cour, le confesseur du Prince présente un profil singulier. La relation qu'il entretient avec son pénitent est unique : tenu à l'obéissance envers le souverain ou son représentant pour les aspects temporels, ce religieux a la faculté unique d'examiner, de conseiller et de juger la spiritualité du premier personnage de l'État. Attaché à la personne du Prince, les relations de cet ecclésiastique avec les autres courtisans ne peuvent être appréhendées au moyen d'une grille de lecture hiérarchisant les rapports sociaux : échappant à l'organisation laïque – mais pas protocolaire – de la cour et ne dépendant pas directement de la Chapelle royale, le confesseur bénéficie d'une autonomie relative. En outre, son pouvoir politique, en partie officiel grâce aux dignités et charges dont ce religieux est pourvu, est avant tout perçu comme une magistrature d'influence à la portée difficilement mesurable. Enfin, les obligations matérielles liées à l'appartenance de ce prélat à un ordre religieux achèvent de distinguer cet ecclésiastique des autres serviteurs princiers. Cette communication visera à distinguer les particularités de la charge de confesseur princier au sein de la société de cour. L'étude portera particulièrement sur la cour de Bruxelles durant la première moitié du xviie siècle. [less ▲]

The right dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) of humans has been reported to be involved in a broad range of motor and cognitive functions. We explored the basis of this behavioral heterogeneity by performing a connectivity-based parcellation using meta-analytic approach applied to PMd coactivations. We compared our CBP results to parcellations obtained through resting-state functional connectivity and probabilistic diffusion tractography,. Functional connectivity profiles and behavioral decoding of the resulting PMd subregions allowed characterizing their respective behavior profile. These procedures divided the right PMd into five distinct subregions that formed a cognitive-motor gradient along a rostro-caudal axis. In particular, we found (i) a rostral subregion functionally connected with prefrontal cortex, which likely supports high-level cognitive processes, such as working memory (ii) a central subregion showing a mixed behavioral profile and functional connectivity to parietal regions of the dorsal attention network, and (iii) a caudal subregion closely integrated with the motor system. Additionally, we found (iv) a dorsal subregion, preferentially related to hand movements and connected to both cognitive and motor regions, and (v) a ventral subregion, whose functional profile fits the concept of an eye-movement related field. In conclusion, right PMd may be considered as a functional mosaic formed by five subregions. [less ▲]

This paper is about a series of experimental fire tests on eight full scale steel columns made of slender I shaped class 4 sections. Six columns were made of welded sections (some prismatic and some tapered members) and two columns were made of hot rolled sections. The nominal length of the columns was 2.7 meters with the whole length being heated. The load was applied at ambient temperature after which the temperature was increased under constant load. The load was applied concentrically on some tests and with an eccentricity in other tests. Heating was applied by electrical resistances enclosed in ceramic pads. Numerical simulations were performed with the software SAFIR® using shell elements. The paper presents the results obtained in terms of failure mode and ultimate temperature, in the experimental tests and in the numerical simulations. [less ▲]

The paper first distinguishes ritual action for sovereigns, which integrates the honoured rulers at a practical level within the religious life of a community, from other, more discrete configurations of the relation between royal and divine power. Among these trends, focus is on the rhetorical and spectacular dimension of wonder. The strategies of wonder-making are first studied in theory through paradoxography, then the categories of grandeur, exoticism and technical excellence are identified in action in Alexandrian religious life and festivals. Master of an empire with universal claims and collector of everything that is beautiful, rare and precious in the world, the king distances himself from his subjects in order to make his superior status explicit. Distance is, however, only the premise for the king to manifest himself to the great public through epiphanies that can be compared with those of divine power. The paper also discusses the way the conformism of court elites not only satisfied their own need to claim for distinguished social status, but also helped royal message spread and caused loyalty to it.

Although a great number of studies has already been devoted to the topic of sacred trees in Greco-Roman Egypt, this paper aims at offering a new contribution to this debate by shifting the focus of research from the hitherto dominant interest in ancient and modern botanical classifications to the study of the socio-cultural contexts (and their diachronic changes) in which sacred trees were used in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt. The analysis focuses on the case study of the tree called περσ(ε)ία / persea in Greek and Latin sources. After drawing attention to the non-complete overlap between the denomination adopted by Greek and Latin authors for this Egyptian sacred plant and its “emic” Hieroglyphic / Demotic correspondents, ἰšd and šw3b, the focus will be on patterns of continuity, innovation and re-contextualization of Egyptian religious traditions in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt and on the social actors and contexts that were involved in the use and protection of sacred plants. When approached from this perspective, the evidence on persea provides a fruitful dossier to investigate some aspects of the dialectic between continuity and transformation in cultural traditions, with particular regard to cases where traditions were adapted beyond cultural and ethnic limits. Moreover, the persea dossier enables us to discuss ancient contexts in which, for religious reasons, nature was seen as worth of being protected and preserved against the risk of extinction. This will allow us to raise some preliminary questions concerning the limits of applicability of modern environmental thinking to ancient cultures, in contexts in which the preservation of vegetal species was seen as an important value for the identity of a community, thus requiring individual and institutional commitment.
