Une typologie des traces numériques utilisées par de futurs enseignants = A typology of digital traces used by future teachers

Coen, Pierre-François ; Bouzenada Sottas, Céline

In: Questions vives, 2019, no. 31, p. 1-19

In order to build links between theory and practice and develop their self-assessment skills and reflection, students of the High Pedagogical School (HEP-FR) have to prepare a learning folder. Thereby, they are encouraged to collect data (pictures, videos, paper) of their activities (especially when they are on field training) and to reflect upon the theoretical concepts seen during the courses....

Epibenthos dynamics and environmental fluctuations in two contrasting polar carbonate factories (Mosselbukta and Bjørnøy-banken, svalbard)

Wisshak, Max ; Neumann, Hermann ; Rüggeberg, Andres ; Büscher, Janina V. ; Linke, Peter ; Raddatz, Jacek

In: Frontiers in Marine Science, 2019, vol. 6, p. -

The Arctic Svalbard Archipelago hosts the world’s northernmost cold-water ‘carbonate factories’ thriving here despite of presumably unfavourable environmental conditions and extreme seasonality. Two contrasting sites of intense biogenic carbonate production, the rhodolith beds in Mosselbukta in the north of the archipelago and the barnacle-mollusc dominated carbonate sediments...

Comparative analysis of the shape and size of the middle ear cavity of turtles reveals no correlation with habitat ecology

Foth, Christian ; Evers, Serjoscha W. ; Joyce, Walter G. ; Volpato, Virginie S. ; Benson, Roger B. J.

In: Journal of Anatomy, 2019, no. 0, p. -

The middle ear of turtles differs from other reptiles in being separated into two distinct compartments. Several ideas have been proposed as to why the middle ear is compartmentalized in turtles, most suggesting a relationship with underwater hearing. Extant turtle species span fully marine to strictly terrestrial habitats, and ecomorphological hypotheses of turtle hearing predict that this...

What is metamorphosis?

Bishop, C. D. ; Erezyilmaz, D. F. ; Flatt, Thomas ; Georgiou, C. D. ; Hadfield, M. G. ; Heyland, A. ; Hodin, J. ; Jacobs, M. W. ; Malakova, S. A. ; Pires, A. ; Reitzel, A. M. ; Santagata, S. ; Tanaka, K. ; Youson, J. H.

Metamorphosis (Gr. meta- “change” + morphe “form”) as a biological process is generally attributed to a subset of animals: most famously insects and amphibians, but some fish and many marine invertebrates as well. We held a symposium at the 2006 Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) annual meeting in Orlando, FL (USA) to discuss metamorphosis in a comparative context....

Comparing thyroid and insect hormone signaling

Flatt, Thomas ; Moroz, Leonid L. ; Tatar, Marc ; Heyland, Andreas

In: Integrative and Comparative Biology, 2006, vol. 46, no. 6, p. 777-794

Transitions between different states of development, physiology, and life history are typically mediated by hormones. In insects, metamorphosis and reproductive maturation are regulated by an interaction between the sesquiterpenoid juvenile hormone (JH) and the steroid 20-hydroxy-ecdysone (20E). In vertebrates and some marine invertebrates, the lipophilic thyroid hormones (THs) affect...

Whole-body regeneration in the colonial tunicate Botrylloides leachii

Blanchoud, Simon ; Rinkevich, Buki ; Wilson, Megan J.

In: Marine Organisms as Model Systems in Biology and Medicine, 2018, p. 337–355

The colonial marine invertebrate Botrylloides leachii belongs to the Tunicata subphylum, the closest invertebrate relatives to the vertebrate group and the only known class of chordates that can undergo whole-body regeneration (WBR). This dramatic developmental process allows a minute isolated fragment of B. leachii’s vascular system, or a colony excised of all adults, to restore a...

Cyclostratigraphy of shallow-marine carbonates – limitations and opportunities

Strasser, André

In: Stratigraphy & Timescales, 2018, vol. 3, p. 151–187

The sedimentary record of ancient shallow-marine carbonate platforms commonly displays a stacking of different facies, which reflects repetitive changes of depositional environments through time. These changes can be induced by external factors such as cyclical changes in climate and/or sea level, but also by internal factors such as lateral migration of sediment bodies and/or changes in the...
