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.
Population dynamics and ranging behaviour of a highly provisioned population of Macaca fascicularis in Bali: implications for management - Brotcorne, Fany; Beudels-Jamar, Roseline; Huynen, Marie-Claude
In response to the global landscape anthropization caused by the extensive urbanization and the recruitment of forestlands for cropping, the primate-human commensalism is growing as well as the related interspecific conflict. In zones of interface, humans and primates are sympatric and compete for food and spatial resources. Today, we still poorly know the proportion of synanthrope primates and the impact of anthropic pressures. We present here data on 25 years-population dynamics and ranging behaviour of a long-term commensal-living population of long-tail macaques (Macaca fascicularis) in Ubud Monkey Forest, Bali (Indonesia). This population has experienced a dramatic growth over 25 years...
Ranging behaviour and sleeping sites in Macaca fascicularis at Bali Barat National Park, Indonesia - Brotcorne, Fany; Maslarov, Cindy; Dosogne, Thibaut; Huynen, Marie-Claude
Ranging behaviour and sleeping site selection are important aspects of primate ecology in their adaptation to the environment. Several non-exclusive factors have been suggested to explain sleeping site selection in primates: predation avoidance, food resources proximity, interactions with conspecifics, physical comfort, and parasite avoidance. We tested the role of some factors in a group of Macaca fascicularis living in a human-modified landscape in Bali Barat National Park, during 3 months from April-June 2011. Despite the large area of available forest, the group’s home range was centred around human-settlements (park headquarters). The home range size, as well as the average daily...
Responses of the long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) to variations in anthropic factors in a rural environment, Bali (Indonesia) - Huynen, Marie-Claude; Brotcorne, Fany; Wandia, I Nengah
The human-macaque interface in Asia is increasingly the focus of numerous studies raising the issue of conflict over space and resources and searching for efficient management strategies. Documenting impacts of interactions with humans and the variations in macaques’ responses to anthropogenic habitats is essential for undertanding adaptation strategies and possibilities of a sustainable coexistence. The long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) is a very successful commensal species that adapts remarkably well to rural and urban landscapes. In some locations of Bali (Indonesia), this species, which has coexisted with humans for centuries, is used today to promote wildlife-based tourism, often characterized by an...
The human-macaque interface: the impact of anthropogenic factors on the behavioural ecology of Macaca fascicularis in Bangkok (Thailand) and Bali (Indonesia) - Brotcorne, Fany; Huynen, Marie-Claude; Wandia, I Nengah
The human-macaque interface is increasingly the focus of many researches in East and South-east Asia. The efforts target the understanding of human impacts on macaques and the risks of pathogen transmission, the mitigation of conflicts as well as the establishment of suitable management programs. Commensal relationships between humans and several species of macaques exist for centuries in some Asian locations, like in Bali (Indonesia), Japan or India. However, the frequency and the intensity of these interactions are strongly increasing over the recent decades, due to the extensive urbanization and recruitment of forestlands for cropping. We conducted a comparative study on...
