Reseau "Innovation sous influence des villes et fillières durables"

The objective of this request is to contribute to the animation of regional reflection on the strategies and innovations necessary for a successful transition of the plant production sectors, by structuring an interdisciplinary and participative reflection on the technological and social innovation paths that are built in interaction with cities and transform the plant sectors, in Occitania in particular, as an exemplary ground of more (...)

Réseau d’Agro-Ecologie en Asie du Sud-Est

The proposed action will have three objectives centred around the animation of the network that is being built around the JEAI HealthyRice: Federate the researchers of our Agropolis community on the theme of agro-ecology. To create a workshop at the experimental site in Cambodia where our actions will take place in 2019 To communicate from the creation of the IYOR by setting up a website including photo and video media, and creating (...)

Réseau Phytobiom à Montpellier

The objectives of this application are threefold: The first ambition is to promote the Phytobiome approach within the regional higher education and research community. The second ambition is to create a network of researchers and research units likely to carry out projects based on the Phytobiome concept. The network’s ambition is to bring about multidisciplinary meetings of researchers, enabling them to share their work and broaden their (...)

Resilience of Managed Amazonian Forests

The project aims to better quantify two key ecosystem services, carbon sequestration and wood production, in logged and managed Amazonian tropical forests. This is a prerequisite to propose new evidence-based forest management practices concealing both economic and environmental sustainability. To do so, long-term impacts of selective logging on main carbon pools and timber volume recoveries will be assessed in several permanent forest plots (...)

French-Chinese cooperation on plant salt stress

Response of natural Arabidopsis accessions to salt stress -A French-Chinese initiative

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME: Previous studies on 13 natural accessions of Arabidopsis have revealed a marked variability of the water transport properties (i.e. hydraulic architecture) of the roots of these plants. In this project, we have combined molecular and biophysical approaches to characterize the response to salt stress of the roots of 5 of these accessions. Measurements of the root hydraulic conductivity (Lpr) by means of a pressure (...)

Retracer l’évolution des agents pathogènes et de leurs déterminants de virulence à travers des échantillons anciens d’herbier

It is now possible to access the DNA of older isolates of a pathogen by screening samples of its host plant available in herbarium collections. Such data will provide information on the "ancient" genetic diversity of phytoviruses and phytobacteria involved in current diseases and will allow us to jointly estimate their mutation rates and date the divergence events of the major pathogens isolated today. The identification and extraction of (...)

Rice pathogenic microBIOME: focus on bacterial and fungal within-plant pathogen interactions in West Africa.

Crop yields are threatened by numerous bioaggressors, so that successive or simultaneous attack of the same plant by various pathogen species is likely to be common within agrosystems. Such co-infections were recognized to modify the outcome of each infection, in terms of symptoms and multiplication of within-plant pathogen population, resulting in important epidemiological and evolutionary (...)

RNA methylation and reproductive modes in plants: characterization of molecu-lar factors involved in the transition between sexual reproduction and apomixis

Nowadays, 800 million persons are underfeed and demographic projections indicate that agricultural systems will have to face an exponentially growing demand until 2050. In addition, strategies to fulfill these demands will have to integrate the effects of global warming, environmental changes (water and land limitation) and social demands (biodiversity preservation, food quality). One essential aspect to meet these challenges is the (...)

Root development: to grow or not to grow?

Crop root system architecture influences plant development and nutrition. Root initiation and subsequent growth are two key factors impacting the elaboration of this architecture and its adaptation to environmental cues. Little is known about the mechanisms regulating lateral root growth plasticity in other plant species than Arabidopsis, such as white (...)
