In this paper, we propose a sexstructured entomological model that serves as a basis for design of control strategies relying on releases of sterile male mosquitoes (Aedes spp) and aiming at elimination of the wild vector population in some target locality. We consider different types of releases (constant and periodic impulsive), providing sufficient conditions to reach elimination. However, ...<br /><br />Maladies des animaux; Autres thèmes

The savanna biome encompasses a variety of vegetation physiognomies that traduce complex dynamical responses of plants to the rainfall gradients leading from tropical forests to hot deserts. Such responses are shaped by interactions between woody and grassy plants that can be either direct, disturbancemediated or both. There has been increasing evidence that several vegetation physiognomies, ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Ecologie végétale; Taxonomie végétale et phytogéographie; Foresterie  Considérations générales

We discuss a model of the spread of a soil pathogen in roots. The model can be considered an extension of the compartmental model of [1] by including compartments for the pathogen. In this way we can consider the spread of the infection through the spatial diffusion of the free (unattached) pathogen, which we believe is a more realistic approach. We show that for the space independent model the ...<br /><br />Maladies des plantes; Biologie du sol

Several continuoustime treegrass competition models have been developed to study conditions of longlasting coexistence of trees and grass in savanna ecosystems according to environmental parameters such as climate or fire regime. In those models, fire intensity is a fixed parameter while the relationship between woody plant size and firesensitivity is not systematically considered. In this ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Ecologie végétale

raps are used commonly to establish the presence and population density of pest insects. Deriving estimates of population density from trap data typically requires knowledge of the properties of the trap (e.g. active area, strength of attraction) as well as some properties of the population (e.g. diffusion rate). These parameters are seldom exactly known, and also tend to vary in time, (e.g. as a ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Ravageurs des plantes; Méthodes de relevé

The aim of this paper is to develop a mathematical model to simulate mosquito dispersal and its control taking into account environmental parameters, like wind, temperature, or landscape elements. We particularly focus on the Aedes albopictus mosquito which is now recognized as a major vector of human arboviruses, like chikungunya, dengue, or yellow fever. One way to prevent those epidemics is to ...<br /><br />Organismes nuisibles des animaux; Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Maladies des animaux

We consider a npatches model, to study the impact of human population movements between cities (patches) in the spread of Chikungunya or even Dengue diseases. In previous works, it was showed that the basic reproduction number can vary from place to place, but this result was obtained without taking into account human movements. We provide a theoretical study of the patchy model, and derive the ...<br /><br />Maladies des animaux; Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Autres thèmes

When both human and mosquito populations vary, forward bifurcation occurs if the basic reproduction number R0 is less than one in the absence of diseaseinduced death. When the diseaseinduced death rate is large enough, R0¼1 is a subcritical backward bifurcation point. The domain for the study of the dynamics is reduced to a compact and feasible region, where the system admits a specific ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Maladies des animaux; Organismes nuisibles des animaux; Autres thèmes

To prevent epidemics of mosquitotransmitted diseases like Chikungunya in R´eunion Island, we develop tools to control its principal vector, Aedes albopictus. Biological control tools, like the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), are of great interest as an alternative to chemical control tools which are very detrimental to environment. The success of SIT is based on a good knowledge of the biology ...<br /><br />Organismes nuisibles des animaux; Maladies des animaux; Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques

A model for the dynamics of a Gao elastic nonlinear beam, which is subject to a horizontal traction at one end, is studied. In particular, the buckling behavior of the beam is investigated. Existence and uniqueness of the local weak solution is established using truncation, approximations, a priori estimates, and results for evolution problems. An explicit finite differences numerical algorithm ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Autres thèmes

Chikungunya is an arthropodborne disease caused by the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus. It can be an important burden to public health and a great cause of morbidity and, sometimes, mortality. Understanding if and when disease control measures should be taken is key to curtail its spread. Dumont and Chiroleu (Math Biosc Eng 7(2):315348, 2010) showed that the use of chemical control tools ...<br /><br />Organismes nuisibles des animaux; Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Maladies des animaux; Autres thèmes

The Sterile Insect Technology (SIT) is a nonpolluting method of control of the invading insects that transmit disease. The method relies on the release of sterile or treated males in order to reduce the wild population of anopheles mosquito. We propose two mathematical models. The first model governs the dynamics of the anopheles mosquito. The second model, the SIT model, deals with the ...<br /><br />Maladies des animaux

Modelling the biomechanics of growing trees is a nonclassical problem, as the usual framework of structural mechanics does not take into account the evolution of the domain geometry due to growth processes. Incremental approaches have been used in rod theory to bypass this problem and to model the addition of new material points on an existing deformed structure. However, these approaches are ...<br /><br />Physiologie végétale : croissance et développement; Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques

This paper proposes a general and minimal continuous model of root growth that aggregates architectural and developmental information and that can be used at different spatial scales. Methods: The model is described by advection, diffusion and reaction operators, which are related to growth processes such as primary growth, branching, mortality and root death. Output variable is the number of ...<br /><br />Méthodes mathématiques et statistiques; Physiologie végétale : croissance et développement; Production forestière; Anatomie et morphologie des plantes
