Although rare species are often the focus of conservation measures, more common species may experience similar decline and suffer from the same threatening processes. We tested this hypothesis by examining, through an information-theoretic approach, the importance of ecological processes at multiple scales in the great crested newt Triturus cristatus,(More)
In this paper we investigated if and how a signature of climate control on vegetation growth can be individualized at regional scale using time series of SPOT-VEGETATION NDVI and ECMWF meteorological data. Twelve regions characterized by dominant and stable cropland or grassland covers were selected in Europe and Africa. Our results show that the(More)

BACKGROUND Neonatal screening programs for sickle cell disease are common in North America and in some European countries. Isoelectric Focusing or High Performance Liquid Chromatography is the main technique used for hemoglobin variant detection. METHODS Since tandem mass spectrometry is being used for screening of inherited metabolic disorders and allows(More)
Using a mixture of mouse monoclonal antibodies anti red blood cell (RBC) AgA and human antibodies anti RBC AgB coupled to fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) conjugated goat antimouse monoclonal antibodies and to phycoerythrin (PE) conjugated goat antihuman monoclonal antibodies, we obtained the distribution of these antigens on the AB RBC surface. The(More)
The Interuniversity Attraction Pole (IAP) ‘PLANET TOPERS’ (Planets: Tracing the Transfer, Origin, Preservation, and Evolution of their Reservoirs) addresses the fundamental understanding of the thermal and compositional evolution of the different reservoirs of planetary bodies (core, mantle, crust, atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and space) considering(More)
— The objectives and methodology of the MAMUD research project are presented in this paper. MAMUD is an acronym for Measuring and Modeling Urban Dynamics: Impact on Quality of Live and Hydrology. The research will be conducted over a four year period (2007-2011). The major goal is to investigate how earth observation can contribute to a better monitoring,(More)
In this paper, an improved methodology for the determination of missing values in a spatio-temporal database is presented. This methodology performs denoising projection in order to accurately fill the missing values in the database. The improved methodology is called EOF Pruning and it is based on an original linear projection method called Empirical(More)
