The Expansion of the Finance Industry and Its Impact on the Economy: A Territorial Approach Based on Swiss Pension Funds

Corpataux, Jose ; Crevoisier, Olivier ; Theurillat, Thierry

In: Economic Geography, 2009, vol. 85, no. 3, p. 313-334

A new economic geography of finance is emerging, and the current "financialization" of contemporary economies has contributed greatly to the reshaping of the economic landscape. How can these changes be understood and interpreted, especially from a territorial point of view? There are two contradictory economic theories regarding the tangible effects of the rise of the finance industry. According...

Increased Capital Mobility/Liquidity and its Repercussions at Regional Level

Corpataux, Jose ; Crevoisier, Olivier

In: European Urban and Regional Studies, 2005, vol. 12, no. 4, p. 315-334

The most significant structural change undergone by the British and Swiss economies during the past 25 years (1975-2000) is indisputably the development of their financial systems. From this point of view, the two countries show a number of similarities: the presence of one or more international financial place(s), large enterprises which expanded greatly on the international front during that...

Identification of facies models in alluvial soil formation: The case of a Swiss alpine floodplain

Bullinger-Weber, G. ; Gobat, Jean-Michel

In: Geomorphology, 2006, vol. 74, no. 1-4, p. 181-195

This paper describes different conceptual facies models intervening in alluvial soil formation in the case of the Sarine River floodplain, a partially embanked floodplain situated in the northwest of the Swiss Alps. Alluvial soils are submitted to processes of deposition and erosion and exhibit various characteristics reflecting the composition and properties of the material transported....

La migration des élites en Suisse : évolution des flux et répartition spatiale des migrants hautement qualifiés entre 2000 et 2007

Gertsch, Kevin ; Piguet, Etienne (Dir.)

Mémoire de diplôme universitaire : Université de Neuchâtel, 2009.

A partir de la deuxième moitié du vingtième siècle, la tendance de la nature des flux migratoires internationaux a progressivement évolué. Une nouvelle forme de migration contemporaine caractérisée par des mouvements de travailleurs hautement qualifiés a émergé, influencée par des bouleversements politiques et économiques. La Suisse n’a pas échappé à ces changements. D’un...

Genetic and Ecological Consequences of Transgene Flow to the Wild Flora

Felber, François ; Kozlowski, Gregor ; Arrigo, Nils ; Guadagnuolo, Roberto

In: Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology, 2007, vol. 107, p. 173-205

Gene flow from crops to wild relatives by sexual reproduction is one of the major issues in risk assessment for the cultivation of genetically engineered (GE) plants. The main factors which influence hybridization and introgression, the two processes of gene flow, as well as the accompanying containment measures of the transgene, are reviewed. The comparison of risks between Switzerland and...

Spatial and Seasonal Patterns of Cattle Habitat use in a Mountain Wooded Pasture

Kohler, Florian ; Gillet, François ; Reust, Stéphanie ; Wagner, Helene H. ; Gadallah, Fawziah ; Gobat, Jean-Michel ; Buttler, Alexandre

In: Landscape Ecology, 2006, vol. 21, no. 2, p. 281-295

Management-oriented models of cattle habitat use often treat grazing pressure as a single variable summarizing all cattle activities. This paper addresses the following questions: How does the spatial pattern of cattle effects vary between cattle activities in a highly heterogeneous landscape? Do these patterns change over the grazing season as forage availability decreases? What are the...

Etude sur la diversité génétique des tiques Rhipicephalus sanguineus et Ixodes ricinus, et des agents pathogènes Rickettsia sp, Coxiella sp, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Babesia sp et le virus de l'encéphalite à tique en Suisse

Casati, Simona ; Piffaretti, Jean-Claude (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2005 ; 1842.

Dans la première partie de l'étude, nous nous sommes concentrés sur la tique Rhipicephalus sanguineus sensu lato signalée au Tessin dès les années '80 et sur les agents pathogènes transmis par ce vecteur: Rickettsia sp. et Coxiella burnetii. Nous avons confirmé par l'étude du gène rDNA 12S l'implantation de ce complexe sous la forme de deux populations distinctes: R. sanguineus s.s. et...
