After a preliminary note, the Author gives the casuistic survey of 30 patients, surgically treated during 12 years about. Moreover, a per cent analysis is done about the different possibilities of incidence of Ledderhose's disease in the cases considered. As a conclusion, the Author remembers the operative technique which gave the best results. Wide partial(More)
Earthworm burrow systems are generally described based on postulated behaviours associated with the three ecological types. In this study, we used X-ray tomography to obtain 3D information on the burrowing behaviour of six very common anecic (Aporrectodea nocturna and Lumbricus terrestris) and endogeic (Aporrectodea rosea, Allolobophora chlorotica,(More)
Soil compaction has a negative impact on both earthworm abundance and diversity. Recent studies, however, suggest that earthworm cast properties are not influenced by the initial soil bulk density. With time, earthworms could therefore transform soils with different bulk densities into a soil with the same physical state and thus with a similar ecological(More)
This manuscript focuses on the effects of land-use change and earthworm activities on the dynamics of dissolved nutrients (carbon and mineral nitrogen) in a steep slope ecosystem in Northern Vietnam. We investigated the properties of soil aggregates (casts and surrounding soils) sampled in different agrosystems: a plantation of Bracharia ruzziziensis (BRA),(More)
Earthworm casts weathered by rainfall are difficult to differentiate from surrounding soil aggregates. We tested the hypothesis that morphological characterisation of soil aggregates by 2D-image analysis helps to perform this differentiation. Compact surface casts produced by Amynthas khami and surrounding aggregates lacking visible signs of biological(More)
The original version of this article, unfortunately, contained errors. The name of the author was incorrectly spelled as “X. Peng”. The correct spelling is “X. H. Peng” and the corresponding author of this article was changed from Nicolas Bottinelli to X. H. Peng.
The aim of this study was to investigate the burrowing activity of two earthworm species: the endogeic Drawida sinica and one undescribed Amynthas species incubated in Vertisol and Ultisol presenting different soil organic C content. Because of their contrasting feeding behaviours, we hypothesised that soil type would have a bigger influence on the(More)
