Léo ROCHER's thesis defence: Wednesday 10 April 2024 at 2:30 pm - amphitheatre of the Avignon University Institute of Technology (IUT)

After 3 years of work on the influence of grassing between vine rows on auxiliary arthropodswe are delighted to invite you to the thesis defence from Léo ROCHERentitled : "Identification of vegetation parameters favouring beneficial arthropods and associated ecological functions in viticulture: a correlative and experimental approach", which visit will take place on Wednesday 10 April at 2.30pm, within the IUT amphitheatre.

Summary of thesis:

The decline in biodiversity in agro-ecosystems is largely attributed to the rise of modern agriculture. The main causes are the destruction of semi-natural structures, the extension of the size of agricultural plots and the intensive use of inputs. Arthropods play an important role in enhancing essential ecosystem services such as pest regulation and pollination. Vegetation is a key factor in encouraging their presence. Plants provide crucial food resources and habitats for arthropods. To encourage these organisms in agro-ecosystems and restore the associated ecological functions, practices such as the introduction of semi-natural structures are relevant. In permanent crops such as vineyards, such structures can be set up within the plots. In the Mediterranean region, vineyard inter-row management often involves eliminating uncultivated vegetation for reasons of water competition and to control plant species considered harmful.

The aim of this thesis work is to gain a better understanding of how inter-row vegetation can encourage the presence of beneficial arthropods and the predation function, while limiting the proliferation of harmful plant species in Mediterranean vineyards (Luberon, France). Three main research questions were posed: (1) Does the presence of grass cover and its floristic composition influence the presence of ants, important players in the predation function in vines? (2) Which functional groups in the vegetation are linked to the abundance of predatory and pollinating arthropods and the predation function? (3) Does diversified and local grass cover increase the presence of beneficial arthropods, improve the predation function and limit the establishment of problem plant species?

In the first chapter we studied the response of ants to grass cover in 23 vineyards. Ants play a crucial role in predation in Mediterranean vineyards (Luberon, France). We tested the effect of three vegetation management methods on the diversity and frequency of ants: inter-row grassing, partial grassing and no grassing. We showed that the partially grassed vineyards had a greater diversity of ants than the non-grassed vineyards. Grass cover and the presence of perennial plants positively influenced ant richness, suggesting the importance of taking these factors into account in vegetation management. In the second chapter, we examined which characteristics of spontaneous vegetation influence beneficial arthropods and the predation function in 37 vineyards. We found that nectariferous flower cover and plant species richness favoured most groups of beneficial arthropods, as well as the predation function. These results highlight the importance of floral resources and plant diversity in favouring the presence of the arthropods studied. Finally, the last chapter is devoted to a sowing experiment and its monitoring over two years. Three types of grassing were compared: high-diversity sowing, spontaneous vegetation and inter-rows without vegetation. In line with the second chapter, our results highlight the positive effects of plant richness and flower cover on weed control, the abundance of beneficial arthropods and the predation function. All the results of this thesis work converge and highlight the importance of considering different vegetation parameters to favour beneficial arthropods in viticulture.

Thursday 11 April 2024, from 1.00 pm to 2.00 pmas part of from Midisciences organised by Avignon Universityour colleague Clémentine Mutillod (PhD student IMBE - IUT d'Avignon) will give a talk entitled  "Is the grass always greener elsewhere? The effects of the return of wild horses (Equus ferus przewalski) to the Mongolian steppe".

"In 2004 and 2005, Przewalski's horses - considered to be the last wild horse in the world - have been reintroduced into their original area, the steppes of Mongolia, in an enclosed reserve of 14,000ha.

Following an initial survey of the flora inside and outside this reserve in 2010, a second field campaign was carried out in 2023, as part of the thesis of Clémentine Mutillod thanks to Avignon University, the Société Française d'Écologie et d'Évolution, the Khomyn Talyn Takhi association and the Takh Association.

A look back at the two months spent on site, between scientific surveys and natural and cultural discoveries.

European Life VineAdapt project at the IUT d'Avignon UNIVERSITY

On 16 October 2023, the IUT Avignon Université was the venue for training on budget management for international Life projects.

The course was led by financial expert : Barbora Patockova of the Ernst & Youngcommissioned by the European Union.

French partners of the project, Avignon University - IMBE and the Marrenon wine cooperative (Luberon)invited their German, Hungarian and Austrian colleagues to visit the experimental vineyard plots in the Luberon and the partners' premises in the Luberon. the IUT, the Bonnieux cellar and the cooperative at La Tour-d'Aigues.

The purpose of the visit was also to discuss the progress of the project and the next stage of the works.
The main challenge of the Life VineAdapt project is the resilience of wine-growing agroecosystems in the face of climate change.

Following on from previous work, we are working on the assumption that a richer biodiversity and better adapted vineyard management will enable better adaptation to the future climate. The work of the French partners focuses on the ecosystem services associated with diversified inter-row grassing, and on the ecological impact of irrigation - increasingly used in Mediterranean viticulture. The French study area is the Luberon.

The work in France is led by two teacher-researchers from the Avignon University IUT: Armin Bischoff and Olivier Blight and involve two doctoral students Léo Rocher and Émile Melloul also based at the IUT.

CLARANOR welcomes 2nd year Packaging Emballage et Conditionnement students on Friday 6 October 2023

" Friday 6 October 2023students from Packaging - 2nd year (PEC2) were welcomed to the the company CLARANOR, specialises in the development of decontamination equipment using pulsed light. Director Christophe RIEDEL.

Christophe RIEDEL spoke about new developments at CLARANOR which are the subject of patent applications, if not to prevent counterfeiting, to enable the company to market its equipment. In fact, in a packaging regulatory context where Reuse, Reduction and Recyclability (AGEC Law) are guiding company investments, CLARANOR offers them solutions that are compatible with changes in the market: in the ultra-fresh sector, decontamination of preformed PET/rPET jars (instead of PP, as rPET is the only plastic suitable for contact with food) to prevent them from deforming (following heat treatment with H2O2); int/ext decontamination of packaging returned by consumers to the self-service section in supermarkets prior to reuse or in shops for cosmetics.

In the assembly workshop, we were able to see equipment for decontaminating in-line corks or cosmetics packaging for re-use.

We would like to extend our warmest thanks to Christophe RIEDEL for hosting the company CLARANOR.
