Schistosomiasis remains one of the most prevalent parasitic diseases in developing countries. After malaria, schistosomiasis is the most important tropical disease in terms of human morbidity with significant economic and public health consequences. Although schistosomiasis has recently attracted increased focus and funding for control, it has been(More)
Soil organic carbon (SOC) represents one of the major pools in the global C cycle. Therefore, even small changes in SOC stocks cause important CO 2 fluxes between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. However, SOC stocks are difficult to quantify accurately due to their high spatial variability. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the potential of(More)
Since 2004 the West African countries of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger have implemented national schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis control programmes with financial and technical support from the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI). In the first three years of the control programmes, nearly 13.5 million doses of praziquantel and(More)
We present a novel forecasting method for generating agricultural crop yield forecasts at the seasonal and regional-scale, integrating agroclimate variables and remotely-sensed indices. The method devises a multivariate statistical model to compute bias and uncertainty in forecasted yield at the Census of Agricultural Region (CAR) scale across the Canadian(More)
The breakage of prosthesis constructed in polymethacrylate resin is a reality in daily practice. Several solutions have been proposed to overcome this problem. Thus, the reinforcement of resin with carbon fibre improved greatly the mechanical properties, notably the fatigue strength. The technique of elaboration of such prosthesis proposed in this study has(More)
According to the orthodontist supernumerary teeth on dental arches necessitate a special analysis of the occlusion to decide which to keep and which ones to pull out. Then he must solve the problem of the new occlusion to have. Thus in this study the authors, from their personal experiences of treatment of cases about supernumerary teeth go through the(More)
