Geochemical fingerprinting of key lithologies and depositional processes across the upper boundary of the Opalinus Clay (Aalenian, Middle Jurassic, northern Switzerland)

Lauper, Bruno ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Vogel, Hendrik ; Jaeggi, David ; Wohlwend, Stephan ; Ariztegui, Daniel ; Foubert, Anneleen

The Opalinus Clay is an argillaceous to silty mudstone formation, notable in Switzerland as the selected host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. Its upper bounding unit (Passwang Formation and eastern equivalents) is composed of successions of mudstone, sandy bioclastic marl and limestone separated by ooidal ironstone beds. The lithostratigraphic transition is diachronous...

Geomorphic response to the lateglacial–holocene transition in high alpine regions (Sanetsch pass, Swiss alps)

Serra, Elena ; Valla, Pierre G. ; Gribenski, Natacha ; Guedes Magrani, Fabio ; Carcaillet, Julien ; Delaloye, Reynald ; Grobéty, Bernard ; Braillard, Luc

Several palaeoclimatic archives have documented the pronounced climatic and environmental change associated with the Lateglacial–Holocene transition in the European Alps. However, the geomorphic response to this major environmental transition has only been punctually investigated. In this study, we propose a detailed reconstruction of post‐Last Glacial Maximum palaeoenvironmental...

Climate change and alpine screes: no future for glacial relict papaver occidentale (papaveraceae) in western prealps

Fragnière, Yann ; Pittet, Loïc ; Clément, Benoît ; Bétrisey, Sébastien ; Gerber, Emanuel ; Ronikier, Michał ; Parisod, Christian ; Kozlowski, Gregor

In: Diversity, 2020, vol. 12, no. 9, p. 346

Glacial relicts, especially those with very narrow habitat requirements, are particularly affected by global warming. We considered Papaver occidentale, a glacial relict endemic to the Western Prealps, belonging to the alpine poppy complex (P. alpinum aggr.), as a model taxon to study the actual status and potential future distribution of species restricted to particular microrefugia. For...

Epidemiology of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae in northern Portugal: Predominance of KPC-2 and OXA-48

Lopes, Elizeth ; Saavedra, Maria José ; Costa, Eliana ; Lencastre, Hermíniade ; Poirel, Laurent ; Aires-de-Sousa, Marta

In: Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance, 2020, vol. 22, p. 349–353

Objectives: To provide, for the first time, data on the molecular epidemiology of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae clinical isolates from the northern region of Portugal (Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro).Methods: A total of 106 carbapenemase-producing K. pneumoniae isolates recovered from clinical samples and rectal swabs between January 2018 and March 2019 were included in this...

Genetic structure of the endemic Papaver occidentale indicates survival and immigration in the Western Prealps

Pittet, Loïc ; Fragnière, Yann ; Grünig, Sandra ; Bétrisey, Sébastien ; Clément, Benoît ; Gerber, Emanuel ; Ronikier, Michał ; Kozlowski, Gregor ; Parisod, Christian

In: Alpine Botany, 2020, p. -

Climatic oscillations of the Quaternary rapidly compelled plant species to shift their geographical range. How alpine plant species responded to climate change, however, remains elusive and remnants of the cold-adapted flora that currently strive in restricted ranges as small, isolated populations have been particularly overlooked. To address the evolutionary history of such a ‘glacial...
