Exploratory study on the interest of the serious gaming for evaluating the practical botany knowledge. The heterogeneity in the levels of knowledge induced by the student’s professional project and the intrinsic difficulty for transposing the academic knowledge to the experimental practice in Plant Biology lead regularly AMAP to become interested in the new pedagogical tools for supporting and developing their training actions in plant (...)

Bottom-up mathematical programming for sustainable food supply in the 21st century

The MODELECO project consists in building a complete two-tier self-contained course on modeling techniques based on mathematical programming for economic analysis in agriculture and environment. The first tier introduces basic concepts and skills and will be developed as a self-study package. The second tier includes advanced modules presenting more sophisticated techniques and simulation exercises and is conceived as a teaching package (...)

Cell separation processes that underlie fruit abscission and shedding//in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq)

The current thesis provides new insights into the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying fruit abscission in the oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq). Molecular and cellular approaches were used to examine the events during abscission zone (AZ) development and function. First, a field experimental system was setup and used to define the precise timing of cell separation, and to examine the response of oil palm fruit at different (...)

Caractérisation nutritionnelle de fruits et légumes ghanéens

Characterization of the nutritional composition of Ghanaian fruits and vegetables and impact of different cooking methods

Micronutrient deficiencies are widespread in Ghana, linked to diets that are predominantly starch-based with less fruits and vegetables. Ghana produces a variety of fruit and vegetables, but little is known about these products and their nutritional importance. The aim of the project was therefore to measure the micronutrient contents in various fruit and vegetables, in order to identify the best sources and have convincing data for their (...)
