Article Reference The Ophiocoma species (Ophiurida: Ophiocomidae) of South Africa
This study raises the number of Ophiocoma species recorded in South Africa from four to eight. All species are briefly discussed in terms of taxonomy, geographic distribution and ecology. In addition, the juvenile of O. brevipes, found on the underside of adult Ophiocoma brevipes specimens, is described in detail. A neotype is designated for O. scolopendrina.

Article Reference Economie et milieu dans les plaines intérieures de Mauritanie occidentale à l’Holocène moyen (Nouadhfat, Aouker occidental)
En Mauritanie occidentale, le site de Nouadhfat, au nord-est de Nouakchott, est essentiel, tant pour la connaissance des paléoenvironnements holocènes que pour celle du Néolithique. Le site se trouve à proximité d’un important paléoréseau hydrographique et sur le rivage d’un vaste paléolac marqué par des diatomites, des gastéropodes d’eau douce et des pistes animales imprimées dans la boue. L’habitat fut occupé par des chasseurs-cueilleurs, des pêcheurs (présence de harpons) et des éleveurs, qui profitèrent d’un milieu évoluant progressivement vers moins d’humidité : une première fois au Néolithique moyen (autour de 6400 cal. BP), puis plus récemment (3900 – 3300 cal. BP), après une crise aride très marquée. Nouadhfat, qui est le site le mieux daté de la région, s’inscrit dans un ensemble d’une grande richesse sur au moins quatre millénaires. La caractéristique principale de ce groupe est sans doute l’existence de nombreuses cultures, qui se sont succédé ou ont cohabité, avant que la limite septentrionale du Sahel ne se décale nettement vers le sud.

Article Reference Systematic revision of the Cretaceous actinopterygian fauna from Bernissart, Belgium
The Cretaceous locality of Bernissart, Belgium, is well known for the Iguanodon remains it yielded. Fossils were collected during coalmine exploitation at the end of the 19th century. In the frame of the ColdCase project, which aims to understand the ecological and geological conditions in the Bernissart lake/swamp during the Barremian, a revision of the actinopterygian fauna from Bernissart, found alongside Iguanodons, has been launched. The revision of the ichtyofauna has started with taxa, unstudied since 1911: Coccolepis macroptera, Lepidotus bernissartensis, L. brevifulcratus and L. arcuatus. The study shows that the material attributed to both genera could likely be attributed to other genera and that the reduced actinopterygian taxic diversity found at Bernissart confirms the lacustrine to swampy environment

Article Reference Database of the MANSCAPE project (Management tools for water bodies in agricultural landscapes)
Short description of the dataset/summary The database of the MANSCAPE project (Integrated management tools for water bodies in agricultural landscapes) comprises species occurrence data of seven different organism groups (phytoplankton, diatoms, zooplankton, macro-invertebrates, macrophytes, amphibians and fish) and data on physical, chemical and morphometric variables of 126 small farmland ponds distributed over almost the entire Belgian territory.
