La phyto-énergétique permet d'établir des liens entre les huiles essentielles et les énergies connues en médecine traditionnelle chinoise. Les huiles essentielles contiennent, sous une forme particulièrement concentrée, les principes actifs des plantes et ont un réel pouvoir thérapeutique lorsqu'elles sont bien choisies et bien utilisées. L'intérêt de la phyto-énergétique, c'est d'utiliser les huiles essentielles non plus comme des médicaments pour traiter des symptômes, mais comme des aiguilles d'acupuncture qui envoient des informations chimiques et vibratoires à chaque cellule et agissent ainsi sur la zone concernée. Cette pratique permet à l'organisme de recouvrer son équilibre et d'améliorer jour après jour sa santé.

The conference "Combating Desertification with Plants" was held in Beer Sheva, Israel, from November 2-5, 1999, and was attended by 70 participants from 30 countries and/or international organisations. Desertification - the degradation of soils in drylands - is a phenomenon occurring in scores of countries around the globe. The number of people (in semiarid regions) affected by the steady decline in the productivity of their lands is in the hundred millions. The measures required to halt and reverse the process of desertification fall into many categories - policy, institutional, sociological-anthropological, and technical. Although technical "solutions" are not currently in vogue, the conference organizers felt that perhaps the pendulum had swung too far in the direction of "participatory approaches." Hence IPALAC - The International Program for Arid Land Crops - whose function is to serve as a catalyst for optimizing the contribution of plant germplasm to sustainable development in desertification-prone regions - felt the time was opportune for providing a platform for projects where the "plant-driven" approach to development finds expression. Some 45 papers were delivered at the conference, falling into the categories of this volume: Overview, Potential Germplasm for Arid Lands, Introduction, Domestication and Dissemination of Arid Land Plants, Land Rehabilitation, and Mechanisms of Plant Transfer. The conference was funded by UNESCO (Division of Ecological Sciences), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, and MASHAV, Israel's Center for International Development Cooperation.

This volume is based on papers presented by invited speakers at a symposium entitled "Plant Nitrogen Metabolism" held in conjunction with the 28th Annual Meeting of the Phytochemical Society of North America. The meeting took place on the campus of the University of Iowa at Iowa City during June 26-30, 1988, and attracted 110 participants from 11 countries. The goal of the symposium was to trace the pathway by which nitrogen passes from soil and atmosphere into both primary and secondary nitrogenous metabolites, focusing upon areas which were felt to be most rapidly expanding. From nodulines (nodule specific proteins) and GS/GOGAT mutants to sugar mimics (polyhydroxyalkaloids) and herbicide inhibitors of amino acid metabolism, research in nitrogen metabolism has expanded into areas barely envisioned only a few years ago. Both the nitrogen specialist and the general plant biochemist will be pleased by the range of topics covered here. Following an overview in Chapter 1 of plant nitrogen metabolism, the remaining chapters are loosely organized into three groups. Chapters 2-6 deal primarily with the biochemistry and molecular biology of nitrogen assimilation and transport, Chapters 7-9 with amino acid metabolism, and Chapters 10-12 with secondary metabolites.

Nous sommes de plus en plus souvent confrontés à un état de fait qui suscite une question : malgré l'évolution des sciences, les sociétés occidentales voient l'apparition de Michel Odoul, fort de son expérience des médecines énergétiques, pose sur les racines de la maladie un regard qui dépasse la vision conventionnelle consistant à accuser systématiquement les microbes et la pollution. Il propose d'aller au-delà de la question environnementale pour l'élargir à une écologie comportementale où chaque acte et chaque pensée ont des conséquences concrètes et visibles à court terme sur le monde. Pour lui, la maladie est une conséquence, plus ou moins immédiate et directe, de la perte par les humains d'un sens moral fondateur : le respect du vivant ! À travers l'analyse de notre rapport aux animaux et à la nature en général, ainsi qu'à l'éducation des enfants, il constate que notre façon de penser le monde et nos comportements blessent nos corps et nos âmes, construisant ainsi en nous le terrain propice à la maladie. Quinze ans après son best-seller Dis moi où tu as mal, je te dirai pourquoi, Michel Odoul nous propose une réflexion novatrice sur un sujet d'actualité. Michel Odoul est fondateur de l'Institut Français de Shiatsu, où sont enseignées diverses approches de santé telles que le shiatsu et sa dimension de psychologie corporelle, les différentes réflexologies plantaires et les huiles essentielles dont la phyto-énergétique, l'utilisation des huiles essentielles comme aiguilles d'acupuncture. Il est également conférencier et intervenant en entreprises.

The success of the previous Conferences on Energy from Biomass, held in Brighton 1980and Berlin 1982, and the continued interest among European countries, encouraged theCommission of the European Communities to organise the third conference on this areaof energy production. It brought together about 500 experts from many countries thuspresenting an international forum for discussion of the most recent advances in researchand development, manufacture and industrial applications.

This volume reports on the findings of experts on tropical zooplankton gathered at a meeting in Kariba, Zimbabwe, in 1991. Some basic questions were asked on community composition and biodiversity in the tropics versus the non-tropics. Old ideas on the nature of zooplankton, which were found to be wider than the `classical' rotifers, cladocerans and copepods, as well as on the number of species in tropical waters, are now beginning to break down accordingly as more and more blank spots in the tropics are explored and as more in-depth studies on the zooplankton of tropical lakes are becoming available. This volume contains a mix of papers discussing the two alternative controls (bottom-up and top-down) of zooplankton community structure and these constitute another step towards a coherent theory of tropical ecosystem theory.

This book contains the papers presented at a NATO Advanced Research Institute on "Mediterranean Marine Ecosystems", held at Heraklion-Crete, Greece, from September 23-27, 1983. A workshop rather than a conference, it was sponsored by the Eco-Sciences Special Programme Panel, in cooperation with the Marine Science Panel. The third of its kind, it was scheduled in the framework of a project on a multidisciplinary integrated approach to the study of the Mediterranean. This Sea and the surrounding land was not only the cradle of many civilizations but is, up to the present time, one of the major world areas of marine traffic, communication and exchanges, fisheries and aquacultures, inshore human activities and ••• pollu tion. To a certain degree it constitutes a gigantic natural labo ratory, where the fate of threatened aquatic and terrestrial eco systems including the human one, is tested. The Mediterranean Sea, with its geological history and present day geographic, hydrological and climatic conditions is believed to form an ecological entity. Important exchanges and mutual influences take place with the surrounding land area and the water masses, naturally (Atlantic, Black Sea) or artificially (Red Sea), connected to the Mediterranean. Therefore, a better and in-depth knowledge of the various ecosystems, benthic, planktonic and nektonic, neritic or pelagic, in the Western or the Eastern Basin seems to be a pre requisite to any action in preserving, upgrading and managing the natural resources of the area.
