ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography
In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).
This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.

CoForChange has shown that management plans based on timber stock recovery are not enough to ensure the sustainability of these production forests. The variability of forest characteristics and their different responses to disturbance should be considered in management decisions.
Relevance of pedotopographical indicators in the assessment of spatial distributions of soil depth and soil water resources under forest stands : General Methodology - Ridremont, François; Deraedt, Deborah; Robert, Tanguy; Degré, Aurore; Claessens, Hugues
Water resources constitute one of the most decisive factors of the adaptation of forest ecosystems facing climate changes. The assessment of soil water resources should lead a better understanding of forest sites vulnerability to water stress and provide appropriate management recommendations for the choice of trees species and sylvicutlural techniques. This study aims to assess the relevance of pedotopographical indicators in the assessment of spatial distributions of soil depth and soil water resources under forest stands. The study area is located in the shale-slate stones pedological context of the Belgian Ardenne ecoregion. It falls within the constrasted relief of the...
Rhizobacterial volatile organic compounds implication in Brachypodium distachyon response to phosphorus deficiency - Baudson, Caroline; Saunier de Cazenave-Mendaluk, Magdalena; du Jardin, Patrick; Delaplace, Pierre
In agriculture, phosphorus (P) is considered as the second most growth-limiting macronutrient after nitrogen. However, P fertilizers are produced from non-renewable resources. In this context, sustainable production strategies have to be developed to enhance P use efficiency of crops, e.g. based on naturally occurring biotic interactions that limit the negative impacts of P deficiency in soils. Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) have already revealed their ability to promote plant growth and tolerance to abiotic stresses through many mechanisms. Among them, the bacterial volatile organic compounds-mediated communication between plants and PGPR is still poorly documented. Our research project aims at studying the...
Recherche de lignées aromatiques d’Abies par hybridation somatique - Fauconnier, Marie-Laure
