To assess how brown capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) delay gratification and maximize payoff, we carried out four experiments in which six subjects could exchange food pieces with a human experimenter. The pieces differed either in quality or quantity. In qualitative exchanges, all subjects gave a piece of food to receive another of higher value. When the(More)
It is possible that non-specialised cues transmitted by conspecifics guide animals’ food search provided they have the cognitive abilities needed to read these cues. Macaques often check the mouth of their group-mates by olfactory and/or visual inspection. We investigated whether Tonkean macaques (Macaca tonkeana) can find the location of distant food on(More)
Sea fishing is an extremely hazardous occupation. Since the eighties, several studies and reports have been made in an attempt to further the integration of safe working conditions into the design of fishing vessels. This paper presents various ergonomical interventions, performed on several very different projects: one industrial vessel, and smaller(More)
Electrolytes based on lithium oligoether sulfate, and dissolved in liquid or polymer solvents, are studied. Their properties in term of ionic conductivities, transference numbers, diffusion coefficients, and electrochemical stabilities are reported. The comparison between NMR and electrochemical data, that is, transference numbers and conductivities,(More)
