Adapting Landscape Mosaics of medIteranean Rainfed Agrosystems for a sustainable management of crop production, water and soil resources – ALMIRA
Among a panel of possible scenarios for the evolution of landscape mosaics in Mediterranean rainfed agricultural systems, we aim at identifying those who are acceptable to stakeholders, and that establish a compromise on a set of ecosystem services: production of agricultural biomass, production of water in dams, and soil conservation by minimizing erosion.
Mediterranean countries are faced with profound and fast mutations due to global changes and recurrent systemic economic and political crises. Rural territories, and among them the most marginalized t
Cultural Tranfers between China and Europe (17th and 18th Centuries): Exchanges, the Aesthetics of Chinoiserie and Identity-Building – CATHAYA
Cultural transfers between China and Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries: exchanges, the aesthetic of chinoiserie and identity-building processes<br /><br />The research team, composed of art historians, a sinologist and historians of ideas, will investigate the aesthetic, political and sociocultural issues prompted by the material and artistic exchanges, contacts and encounters between China and Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Reduced order model for dynamical structures having a High Modal Density in the low frequency range. – HiMoDe
This project is devoted to the low-frequency (LF) vibration analysis of dynamical structures having a high modal density in the LF band. The increasing complexity of dynamical structures in many indus
Exposure to extended heat-stress induces large-scale nucleosome dynamics and leads to reactivation of transcriptional silencing illustrating a yet undefined layer of epigenetic control, as epigenetic marks commonly associated with reactivation of transcriptional silencing are unaffected.
Transformations in lifestyles in mediterranean countries : a sociological and demographic study – SODEMOMED
This programme examines the link between demographic transition and induced societal changes and how they materialise in the lifestyles of individuals, depending on their social characteristics, throughout their life cycles.
Assessment of changes in MEdiTerranean HYdro-resources in the South: river basin Trajectories – AMETHYST
* Comparison between two studied sites (Merguellil and Tensift) emblematic of water scarcity in Mediterranean region, where climatic changes and environmental evolution induced by human activities reinforce the likelihood of crises and contributes to increasing the competition between water uses and users.<br />* Combining physical, social, economic and political sciences for analysis of past and current water resources evolution and building of scenario for future evolution.<br />
