Architecture et croissance des plantes

Architecture and the growth of plants

Modeling and applications


M. Jaeger, P. De Reffye, D. Barthélémy, F. Houllier

Edition 2016

This book, in epub format, is the result of 40 years of research on modeling the development and growth of plants. The authors reveal, step by step, the process leading up to the creation of the GreenLab model and the conditions under which it can now be applied.

This book will be available in print and PDF format in June 2017.

Statistique et recherches interdisciplinaires

Statistics and interdisciplinary research

Getting involved when questions go unanswered


F. Laloë

Edition 2016

Based on a specific experience relating to an artisanal fishery study in Senegal, the author shows that the role of statistics must sometimes go beyond that for which it was initially intended. When findings clash with reality at the conclusion of a research programme, it could be that there is no clear relationship with the initial question(s) posed. That is when statisticians must get involved.

Le  renouveau des systèmes d'information sur les marchés agricoles dans les pays en développement

Renewal of Information Systems in Agricultural Markets in the Developing Countries

Cahiers Agricultures Special Issue


F. Galtier, J. Subervie, H. David-Benz, J. Egg

Edition 2014

This bilingual themed issue of Cahiers Agricultures is dedicated to the latest generation of information systems in agricultural markets (SIM) in the developing countries. How do the SIM operate? Are they of use to the operation of markets and public policies? What do we know about their impact?

Critical Modelling

Critical Modelling


N. Bouleau

Edition 2014

Is the place of modelling nowadays in the sciences and even more in techniques wrongfully assumed? Do mathematics, the basis for the models developed by engineers, guarantee a useful and beneficial representation of reality? What savings can supposedly be made by modelling? And what decisions?
These are just a few of the questions on modelling addressed by this work on its cognitive nature and its social issues.

Modelling and Interdisciplinarity

Modelling and Interdisciplinarity

Six Disciplines Searching for Epistemology


N. Mathieu, A. Schmid

Edition 2014

Twelve major witnesses, renowned scientists from six disciplines (anthropology, biology, geography, linguistics, philosophy and physics), have responded during a series of seminars to the topical question of the relationship between modelling and interdisciplinarity as presented in their approach to research. The resulting book, original in its direct speech format, provides the reader with a few keys.

Reaction-diffusion Models for Spatial Ecology

Reaction-diffusion Models for Spatial Ecology

With Instructor-led Exercises


L. Roques

Edition 2013

The main goal of the book is to provide keys in the effective use of spatio-temporal models of reaction-diffusion differential equations, to respond to modern problems of population biology. This approach may thus help the mathematician in speculating. It will also help the biologist to construct models using advanced mathematical tools.

Sensitivity Analysis and Exploration of Models

Sensitivity Analysis and Exploration of Models

Applications to Environmental Sciences


R. Faivre, S. Mahévas, D. Makowski, H. Monod, B. Iooss

Edition 2013

This work provides an overview of various models of sensitivity analysis and exploration of models developed in oceanography, fishery, environment, water management, ecology, agronomy, etc. It suggests an approach for choosing the method most suitable for its need and shows how to apply these methods in reality. It is targeting modellers and model users who wish to acquire or consolidate their understanding of analytical methods and exploring models through simulations.

Farms, Farmer Strategies and Public Policies

Farms, Farmer Strategies and Public Policies

Contributions by the Olympe Model


É. Penot

Edition 2012

This book is the culmination of several years of research by teams of widely-differing origins. All the researchers found themselves facing a few common questions: how to design and use a software model to understand farmer strategies? How to quantify a farm's inputs and outputs and, more globally, how to estimate the impact of changes in technical choices on the operation of farms in France and in the developing world?
