Viande de bœuf: impacts environnementaux déterminés par l’indice de consommation des fourrages

Agroscope a comparé les impacts environnementaux de la viande de bœuf de pâturage avec ceux de la viande issue de l’engraissement de gros bétail selon les directives des prestations écologiques requises PER et du label Terra-Suisse d’IP-Suisse. Tandis que la viande de bœuf Terra-Suisse affichait des impacts environnementaux moyens, ceux de la viande de pâturage étaient nettement plus élevés. Ces résultats sont dus à la plus grande consommation d’aliments qui va de pair avec un affourragement extensif et une croissance plus lente.

La flavescenza dorata è la più grave malattia della vite

Comparsa nell’autunno scorso per la prima volta a nord delle Alpi, so-no stati scoperti due focolai a Blonay e a Tour-de-Peilz. Al fine di evitare che questi focolai si estendano all’intero vigneto, vanno adottate una serie di misure di lotta. Per limitare la diffusione dell’agente che causa la malattia occorre, in particolare, intervenire contro l’insetto vettore, la cicalina Scaphoideus titanus.

Organismi nocivi: è importante monitorare e controllare gli alberi

L’arrivo della stagione calda coincide con l’inizio del periodo di volo degli organismi nocivi quali il tarlo asiatico del fusto o il bostrico. Le attività di controllo da parte dei forestali e dei proprietari di boschi contribuiscono in misura sostanziale alla prevenzione. Inoltre, le segnalazioni della popolazione e delle persone con professioni cosiddette «verdi» consentono di identificare e combattere per tempo un’eventuale infestazione.

Le foin sauvage d'Isenthal est «paysage de l'année 2016»

En 2016, le prix de la Fondation pour la protection du paysage (FP) est décerné aux faucheurs de foin sauvage d’Isenthal, canton d'Uri, pour l’exploitation "sportive" des surfaces en forte pente, une forme d'exploitation devenue rare, qui façonne un paysage culturel d'importance et qui contribue à l'entretien des prairies sèches riches en espèces en montagne.

Gene Drives on the Horizon: Advancing Science, Navigating Uncertainty, and Aligning Research with Public Values

Research on gene drive systems is rapidly advancing. Many proposed applications of gene drive research aim to solve environmental and public health challenges, including the reduction of poverty and the burden of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, which disproportionately impact low and middle income countries. However, due to their intrinsic qualities of rapid spread and irreversibility, gene drive systems raise many questions with respect to their safety relative to public and environmental health. Because gene drive systems are designed to alter the environments we share in ways that will be hard to anticipate and impossible to completely roll back, questions about the ethics surrounding use of this research are complex and will require very careful exploration.

New developments in engineering plant metabolic pathways

A review of the current state-of-the-art in plant engineering. The publication presents how:
- Plant metabolic pathways can be reconstituted in heterologous hosts.
- Metabolism in crop plants can be engineered to improve the production of biofuels.
- Crops can be engineered to express metabolic pathways that improve human health.

Extreme Insect Imaging

Many natural history collections are currently digitizing their most important specimens to enhance their visibility and usefulness. The results of these endeavours are usually made publicly available in national and international information portals such as those of the «Centre Suisse de Cartographie de la Faune» (CSCF) or the «Global Biodiversity Information Facility» (GBIF).
