The term « Pet bird » designates birds housed and breeded for an exclusively ornamental use. This category includes mainly Passeriformes (canaries, finches…) and Psittaciformes (parrots, parakeets…), and is a not-so-well known vet’s clientship fraction. Many families indeed own their « kitchen canary », which represent a lucrative business for pet shops or local breeders (e.a. via birds fairs and markets). Besides, some birds are bred for their very high value; for example, in the case of canaries, male and female reproductors with recognized genetic potential are presented in international contests for their posture (the Bossu Belge : fig 1a), their colour (red mosaic: fig 1b) and for their song (Harzer: fig 1c) and sold for rising prices. Finally, exotic birds like parrots (ara, cockatoo…), legally or illegaly traded from Asia, are however very popular pets and profusely represented in zoos and parks. Notwithstanding these economic facts, these animals are potential carriers and/or transmitters of zoonotic diseases. Some of them could have an important impact on human health, like ornithosis, salmonellosis or even H5N1 high pathogenic avian influenza. This review, although non exhausive, has as aim to enlighten, by the description of several cases of birds-humans transmission the risks encountered by birds owners, including children, and on another point of view to assess the potential economic consequences.

The dominant species of the crustacean plankton in Lake Kivu are the cyclopoid copepods Thermocyclops consimilis and Mesocyclops aequatorialis and the cladoceran Diaphanosoma excisum. Mean crustacean biomass over the period 2003–2004 was 0.99 g C m−2. The seasonal dynamics closely followed variations of chlorophyll a concentration and responded well to the dry season phytoplankton peak. The mean annual crustacean production rate was 23 g C m−2 year−1. The mean trophic transfer efficiency between phytoplankton and herbivorous zooplankton was equal to 6.8 %, indicating a coupling between both trophic levels similar to that in other East African Great lakes. These observations suggest a predominant bottom-up control of plankton dynamics and biomass in Lake Kivu. Whereas the present biomass of crustacean plankton in Lake Kivu is comparable to that of other African Rift lakes, the zooplankton biomass before Limnothrissa introduction was 2.6 g C m−2, based on estimation from available historical data. So, if the sardine introduction in the middle of the last century led to a threefold decrease of zooplankton biomass, it did not affect zooplankton production to a level which would lead to the collapse of the food web and of the fishery.

In the current debate about the zoo's educational role it s usually assumed that the emotional aspect of the zoo experience impairs the scienfic knowledge that people can gain from their visit. First we briefly describe four human-animal interactionnal patterns that can be observed in a zoo, and we recognise that indeed, in that context, the emotion experienced by the public impairs its knowledge of the animals. then we persent the Hediger's distinctin between an object and a subject animal and we hypothesise that the visitor's emotions impari animal knowledge only when the exhibited animals are object-animals. Those are incomplete animals : they are not complete beings in relation to their evolutionary environment. It is our view that when the exhibited animals are more complete organisms, the emotions can be a tool for a better knowledge of the animals. [less ▲]

Ce chapitre d’ouvrage montre les résultats de ma recherche sur les manuscrits pehlevis. Après une introduction générale au contexte dans lequel la littérature en moyen-perse zoroastrien a été transmise, on indique les centres où les manuscrits sont copiés (époques, lieux et familles de scribes) et des informations sur les codices (copistes, contenu et classification paléographique), sur les matériaux (format, papier et encre) et, finalement, sur la nécessité de la numérisation des manuscrits pehlevis.

The zosteriform distribution of cutaneous lesions is a common disease pattern in dermatology. It describes a unilateral girdle-like distribution restricted to the sensitive nerve territory of a dermatome. Three different pathogenic pathways can lead to a zosteriform pattern. The neural pathway uses the axons of a nerve ganglion for viral transport to a specific dermatome. The arche type is Herpes Zoster (HZ) followed by Zosteriform Herpes Simplex Virus Type (HSV) I infection. The Blaschkoid pathway uses the Blaschko lines that represent embryonic migration patterns, often mimicking a dermatomal distribution, particularly on the trunk. The isotopic pathway defines a dermatosis that exclusively develops on the site of a previously healed HZ eruption. Before a zosteriform eruption, a history of prior HZ guides the diagnosis to the isotopic pathway, mainly represented by granulomatous reactions followed by, among others, lichen planus, vasculitis and basal cell carcinoma. With no prior history of HZ recent eruptions orientate towards HZ and zosteriform HSV, whereas chronic eruptions should primarily evoke cutaneous metastases, principally from breast, ovary and lung carcinoma. This review summarizes the relevant literature and presents a clinical algorithm for the differential diagnosis of zosteriform dermatoses. [less ▲]
