Species-specific responses to combined water stress and increasing temperatures in two bee-pollinated congeners (Echium, Boraginaceae)

Charlotte Descamps, Sophie Marée, Sophie Hugon, Muriel Quinet & Anne-Laure Jacquemart
1Water stress and increasing temperatures are two main constraints faced by plants in the context of climate change. These constraints affect plant physiology and morphology, including phenology, floral traits, and nectar rewards, thus altering plant–pollinator interactions. 2. We compared the abiotic stress responses of two bee-pollinated Boraginaceae species, Echium plantagineum, an annual, and E. vulgare, a biennial. Plants were grown for 5 weeks during their flowering period under two watering regimes (well-watered and water-stressed) and...

L’émergence de Coega et la nouvelle géographie portuaire sud-africaine

Jacques Charlier
L’Afrique du Sud dispose d’un système portuaire relativement étoffé mais qui est spatialement déséquilibré. Les trafics y ont fortement augmenté durant les uarante dernières années, sous l’effet principalement de la montée en puissance du port historique plurifonctionnel de Durban et des deux nouveaux ports raquiers et industriels de Richards Bay et de Saldanha Bay. Dans le premier cas, les conteneurs mais aussi les hydrocarbures sont sur le devant de la scène ; dans les deux...

Data from: A novel phenotype combining primary ovarian insufficiency growth retardation and pilomatricomas with MCM8 mutation

Abdelkader Heddar, Dominique Beckers, Baptiste Fouquet, Dominique Roland & Micheline Misrahi
Context: Primary Ovarian insufficiency (POI) affects 1% of women under 40 years and leads most often to definitive infertility with adverse health outcomes. Very recently, genes involved in DNA repair have been shown to cause POI. Objective: To identify the cause of a familial POI in a consanguineous Turkish family. Design: Exome sequencing was performed in the proposita and her mother. Chromosomal breaks were studied in lymphoblastoid cell lines treated with Mitomycin (MMC). Setting and...

Agricultural intensification and land use change: assessing country-level induced intensification, land sparing and rebound effect

Virginia Rodriguez Garcia, Patrick Meyfroidt, Frédéric Gaspart & Thomas Kastner
In the context of growing societal demands for land based products, crop production can be increased through expanding cropland or intensifying production on cultivated land. Intensification can allow sparing land for nature, but it can also drive further expansion of cropland, i.e. a rebound effect. Conversely, constraints on cropland expansion may induce intensification. We tested those hypotheses by investigating the bidirectional relations between changes in cropland area and intensity, using a global cross-country panel dataset...
