Microplastic concentrations in river and beach environments of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, Southern Vietnam: COMPOSE project, 2019-2021

Thi Ha Dang, Vu Binh Nguyen, Thi Thanh Dung Do & Emilie Strady
Microplastic (300-5000µm) concentrations were measured in the Dinh River and in the shoreline of the Back and Mudberry beaches of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, Southern Vietnam, under the COMPOSE project (2019-2021). Microplastic were sampled using a 80µm mesh size net from a local boat in the water and using sediment core of 5cm depth for the sediment. The samples were extracted in the laboratory using enzymatic digestion, NaCl density separation and were filtrated on...

Microplastic concentrations in lagoon and bay environments of Binh Dinh province, Central Vietnam: COMPOSE project, 2019-2021

Vo Van Chi, Hoang Duc An, Truong Thanh Tam & Emilie Strady
Microplastic (300-5000µm) concentrations were measured in the Thi Nai lagoon and Quy Nhon bay environments of Binh Dinh province, Central Vietnam, under the COMPOSE project (2019-2021). Microplastic were sampled using a 80µm mesh size net from a local boat. The samples were extracted in the laboratory using enzymatic digestion, NaCl density separation and were filtrated on GF-A filter. Then microplastic were observed on stereomicroscope and length, area, color were measured for fragments, line and circle....

Replication data for : The little known Awu volcano is among the highest CO2 degassing source on earth

BANI Philipson, Le Glas Etienne, , AIUPPA Alessandro &
Awu is one of the remote and little known active volcanoes of Indonesia. It is the northernmost active volcano of Sangihe arc with 18 eruptions in less than 4 centuries, causing a cumulative death toll of 11048. Two of these eruptions were classified as VEI 4. Since 2004, a lava dome occupies the center of Awu crater, channeling the fumarolic gas output along the crater wall. A combined DOAS and MultiGAS measurements highlight a relatively...

Food and beverage consumption and dietary routines and practices in Ghana

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

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

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...

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...
