How many Migrants does the Swiss Pension System Need?

Milivinti, Alice

(nccr on the move ; 19)

The positive role exerted by migrants to decelerate the ageing population process of devel oped countries has been stressed by many studies. However, the actual number of migrants needed to sustain the pension systems and its effectiveness in the long-run often remains tacit.

SWISSCIT Index on Citizenship Law in Swiss Cantons: Conceptualisation, Measurement, Aggregation

Arrighi, Jean-Thomas ; Piccoli, Lorenzo

(nccr on the move ; 18)

In the Swiss federal context, the acquisition of citizenship through ordinary naturalization, the enjoyment of electoral rights as a foreign resident, and the retention of the franchise as a Swiss citizen abroad is not uniformly defined through a single federal law but co-determined by the cantons. In this explanatory note, we introduce SWISSCIT, a set of indicators measuring how inclusive...

BABA in priming tomato for enhanced tolerance to drought, salinity and fungal stress and combinations thereof

Ben Rejeb, Ines ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Tomatoes are among the most produced and consumed vegetable-fruit in many countries and is considered an economically important crop. However, drought, salinity and pathogen infection are the main causes of crop yield reduction and variability. Although plants have developed defensive capacities against these stresses, but plant tolerance and resistance depend on the degree and intensity of...

Courtship communication in the wild chimpanzees of Budongo, Uganda

Fallon, Brittany Laurie Ann ; Zuberbühler, Klaus (Dir.) ; Byrne, Richard (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

This thesis examines wild chimpanzee mating behaviour, and considers in particular the role of communication during mating. Previous studies have focused on compiling behavioural ethograms, or on a small subset of courtship signals. More generally, research on chimpanzee sexual behaviour has rarely looked at intentional communication, but instead focused on a handful of courtship tactics, such as...
