Rebecca PRADEILLES, Amos LAAR, Akua TANDOH, Mark GREEN, Francis ZOTOR, Senam KLOMEGAH, Hibbah OSEI-KWASI, Robert AKPARIBO, Nicolas BRICAS, Paula GRIFFITHS & Michelle HOLDSWORTH
Food intake was assessed using qualitative 24hr recall (food type information only, not quantity consumed). In 2017, interviewers noted all food and drink consumed by participants inside/outside the home in the previous 24hr period, also recording how long a food event lasts (time categories), time of day of the food event (exact time in minutes), who participants eat with and where. The 24hr dietary recall was structured around a pre-populated 24hr recall tool that we...

Food environment benchmarking of policies to prevent nutrition-related non-communicable diseases in Kenya

Gershim ASIKI, Milkah WANJOHI, Amy BARNES, Kristin BASH, Stefanie VANDEVIJERE, Elizabeth KIMANI & Michelle HOLDSWORTH
This study assessed government action, implementation gaps, and priorities to improve the healthiness of food environments (FE) in Kenya. Using the Healthy Food-Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI), a panel (n=16) of government and independent experts rated the extent of government action to improve the healthiness of FE in Kenya against international best practices and according to steps within a policy cycle. The Food-EPI tool used was based on that developed by the International Network for Food...

Participatory photography (photovoice) to explore food environments in Ghana and Kenya: interview transcripts

Rebecca PRADEILLES, Milkah WANJOHI, Akua TANDOH, Ana IRACHE, Michelle HOLDSWORTH, Amos LAAR, Gershim ASIKI, Stella MUTHURI, Marcus BOHR, Robert AKPARIBO, Hibbah OSEI-KWASI, Mark GREEN, Fiona GRAHAM, Elizabeth KIMANI-MURAGE, Emily ROUSHAM & Paula GRIFFITHS
The aim of this study was to identify social and physical factors that influence dietary behaviours in adolescents and adults living in urban Ghana and Kenya. In 2017-2018, a qualitative study was conducted amongst adolescents and adults aged ≥13 years living in socio-economically deprived urban neighbourhoods in Accra, Ghana (n=30) and Nairobi, Kenya (n=48). Participants used photography to identify characteristics in their social and physical environment that drive their dietary behaviours. Specifically, participants were asked...

Araignées de Nouvelle-Calédonie : poster

J. Roger , Hervé Jourdan & David Brouste
Ce poster une sélection de 30 portraits, représentatifs de l'extrême diversité des formes et des modes de vie, avec quelques espèces emblématiques comme une mygale, la veuve noire ou une gasteracanthe, et d'autres qui le sont beaucoup moins mais pourtant tout aussi intéressantes pour les naturalistes.

Spiders of New Caledonia : poster

Jean Roger, D. Brouste & Hervé Jourdain
In 2018, the World Spider Catalogue listed more than 47,000 species of spiders distributed within more than 4,000 genera worldwide. Some scientific studies suggest that at least twice as many species need to be discovered. New Caledonia, classified as one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots because of the incredible richness of its fauna and flora, both heavily threatened by human impacts, is not to be outdone. More than 320 species of spiders have been recorded...

Aquaporins in Pearl Millet: genomic, coding and protein sequences

Alexandre Grondin, Pablo Affortit, Christine Tranchant-Dubreuil, Carla De La Fuente Canto, Cedric Mariac, Pascal Gantet, Vincent Vadez, Yves Vigouroux & Laurent Laplaze
Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum (L) R. Br.) is a key cereal for food security in arid and semi-arid regions but its yield is increasingly threatened by water stress. Physiological mechanisms consisting in saving water or increasing water use efficiency can alleviate that stress. Aquaporins (AQP) are water channels contributing to plant hydraulic balance that are supposedly involved in these mechanisms by mediating root water transport. However, AQP remain largely uncharacterized in pearl millet. We developed...

Global maps of habitat suitability probability for 1,485 European endemic plant species

ROBIN POUTEAU &
This dataset includes 1,485 raster files (.gri format) representing global maps of habitat suitability probability for the most widespread European endemic plant species. 272 species are already recorded as naturalized outside Europe and 1,213 species are not yet recorded as naturalized outside Europe but might become so in the future depending on their habitat suitability probabilities. The spatial resolution is 0.4166667° × 0.4166667°. The geographic coordinate system is World Geodetic System 1984 (EPSG: 4326). To...

Informal waste collectors and aggregators space and activities in Da Nang city, Vietnam, COMPOSE project (2019-2021)

Thai Huyen Nguyen, Thi Hai Yen Nguyen, Thi Thao Trang Le, Thai Hoa Nguyen, Thi Kinh Kieu, Minh Hien Nguyen, Thanh Dang Tran, Minh Tieng Hoang, Thi Huyen Le, Viet Anh Le, Ngoc Anh Dinh & Tien Tam Nguyen
The system of informal waste collectors and aggregators in Da Nang city (Vietnam) was surveyed in the framework of the COMPOSE project (2019-2021). The social survey based on questionnaire was carried out in the entire area of Da Nang city to identify the location of the aggregator warehouse participating to the informal waste collection and recycling in the city. Then, the collectors and aggregators were interviewed to collect information on the space, architectural characteristic of...

Commensal small mammal trapping data in Southern Senegal, 2012-2015

Laurent Granjon & Odile Fossati
As part of projects aimed at studying 1) the role of invasive black rat populations in the emergence of zoonotic diseases in Southeastern Senegal, and 2), the evolutionary consequences of parasites in R. rattus and M. musculus invasions in Senegal, we conducted a series of field campaigns throughout the southern part of the country, between May 2012 and September 2015. The objective was to catch commensal (= indoor) small mammals using standard trapping procedures, identify...

Daily flow in the rivers linked to the Aghien lagoon (2015-)

Bamory Kamagate, Luc Seguis, Jean-Louis Perrin, Maurice Guilliod & Serge Ehouman Koffi
To face the difficulties involved in supplying freshwater to Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), the Aghien Lagoon is a potential resource for production of drinking water. A hydro-meteorological network was installed with the objective of assessing the sustainability of the lagoon in terms of both quantity and quality. The automatic measurement of the water level is converted into a flow rate by means of a flow height rating curve established by gauging.

Informal waste collectors and aggregators space and activities in Buon Ma Thuot city, Vietnam, COMPOSE project (2019-2021)
