Sustainable urban food systems - Surfood

During the year and a half of the project, from November 2012 to April 2014, researchers from the Agropolis Foundation scientific community and their colleagues, with the support of the UNESCO Chair on world food systems, conducted activities to set up a federative research program on the sustainability of urban food systems. The scientific bibliography and the 7 seminar sessions have positioned the Montpellier research on the sustainability (...)

Sustainable urban food systems Surfood - FOODSCAPES

The aim of this research is to analyse the relationships between the foodscape and the food styles (consumption, practices and representations) of urban dwellers. More particularly, it is a matter of characterising the food supply in residential districts. “Supply” refers to procurement zones (markets, shops) and catering sites. To what extent does the configuration of the local supply influence consumption, eating habits and their (...)

Systematic challenges for Sustainable Crop Protection : the case of Arthropods and Nematods

Support for the implementation of a project to develop a MOOC on the integrative taxonomy of arthropods and plant parasitic nematodes of agronomic interest. The courses, available free of charge in French and English, will deal with the identification of arthropods and nematodes using innovative teaching tools. The MOOC aims to promote scientific research in the fields of biological control, biodiversity conservation and biomonitoring. The (...)

Tackling the metagenomics of aphids microbial symbionts : are conifereeding aphids looking for new tenants

Tackling the metagenomics of aphids microbial symbionts : are conifer -eeding aphids looking for new tenants ? In the last years, increasing evidence recognizes that bacterial endosymbionts are major players in the evolution of plant-eating insects. But the long-term consequences of these interactions and their role in the environmental transitions experienced by their hosts are seldom explored in a phylogenetic (...)

TANnase Tools for Renewable Aromatic building blocks

Phenols are of great interest in the chemical industry because of their numerous applications in various fields (e.g. bisphenols in materials, parabens in cosmetics or alkylphenols in preservatives and surfac-tants). However, concerns on their innocuity and on their environmental impact urge the development of less harmful and biobased (...)

The AeschyMap project: development of a genetic map for the Nod-independent legume Aeschynomene evenia

The tropical Aeschynomene legumes use a unique Nod-independent infection process that is believed to correspond to an ancestral state of the nitrogen-fixing rhizobium-legume symbiosis. The study of this system should therefore shed new light on the origin and evolution of symbiosis by uncovering the basic underlying the process of nodulation. To advance in our knowledge of this Nod-independent symbiotic process, we performed a molecular (...)

The interfaces between agricultural raw material and processing, a key point for bridging variability of raw materials and versatility of processing for innovative food systems.

Support for the Interfaces project, the objective of which is to create a research continuum between the development of agricultural raw materials and their transformation in order to define the margins of flexibility (technological and economic) that exist with regard to the variability of the raw material. Two main questions are posed: What are the responses of fruits to processing operations? How can these processing operations be (...)

The Third international symposium on Plant Growth modling, Simulation, Visualization and Applications (PMA09)

This third event of the series (after PMA03 and PMA06) took place in Beijing from 2009, november 9th to 13rd. Under PMA09 board (CAU and CIRAD), the international scientific committee selected 42 oral contributions and 18 poster contributions. The board also invited 4 key note speakers. Presentations where of high quality. They show that FSPM become mature. Most of the contributions present applications in which FSPMNprovide the background (...)
