    • Authors: Nivo H. Rakotoarivelo, Nadiah V. Manjato, Lala R. Andriamiarisoa, Roger Bernard, Sylvie Andriambololonera
      Pages: 25 - 32
      Abstract: Traditional use of plants constitutes an important activity in Malagasy life, especially in the countryside. The Sihanaka group is found in the east of  Lake Alaotra and is the dominant cultural group in the lake region, including in the Fokontany of Andreba Gara, near Park Bandro, in the east of  Lake Alaotra, in Ambatondrazaka district where the study was conducted. The Sihanaka holds traditional knowledge on plant uses and makes use of  this knowledge in their daily lives. The objective of this study was to describe the use of aquatic plants in the region to better understand the  importance of the Alaotra wetlands in the lives of local people. Surveys conducted among the people of Andreba, including one traditional chief (the Tangalamena) and one healer, revealed 55 useful species of aquatic plants, grouped into 41 genera and 23 families. Most species were used for their medicinal and veterinary virtues (32 species), for animal food (17 species), as utensils and tools (16 species), for cultural uses (10 species), and  for human food (9 species). Leaves (76%) are the most exploited plant parts. The species with the most uses were Cyperus papyrus subsp.  madagascariensis (Willd.) Kük. with 26 types of use recorded, then Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud. (19 types of use), Aeschynomene  elaphroxylon (Guill. & Perr.) Taub. and Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms (12 types of use each). Nymphaea nouchali, Cyperus papyrus subsp.  madagascariensis and Phragmites australis were the species most frequently cited by informants, indicating that they are important for the local  population. The most frequently cited types of use included joro, namely ancestor’s invocation, food, materials for house walls construction, herbal teas to treat ailments, and fencing or demarcation of land boundaries. This study highlighted the importance of the Alaotra wetlands as a source of  useful plants for the local population. Sustainable management of Lake Alaotra is therefore not just necessary for biodiversity conservation, but also  for maintaining local livelihoods.   L’utilisation traditionnelle des plantes constitue une activité importante dans la vie des Malgaches, plus particulièrement dans les campagnes. Le  groupe Sihanaka est rencontré à l’est du lac Alaotra et constitue le groupe culturel dominant dans la région du lac, y compris dans le Fokontany  d’Andreba Gara, près du Parc Bandro, à l’Est du Lac Alaotra, dans le district d’Ambatondrazaka où l’étude a été menée. Les Sihanaka détiennent des  connaissances traditionnelles sur l’utilisation des plantes et utilisent ces connaissances dans leur vie quotidienne. L’objectif de cette étude était  de décrire l’utilisation des plantes aquatiques dans la région afin de mieux comprendre l’importance des zones humides de l’Alaotra dans la  vie des populations locales. Des enquêtes menées auprès de la population d’Andreba, y compris auprès d’un chef traditionnel (le Tangalamena) et  d’un guérisseur, ont révélé 55 espèces utiles de plantes aquatiques, regroupées dans 41 genres et 23 familles. La plupart des espèces étaient  utilisées pour leurs vertus médicinales et vétérinaires (32 espèces), pour l’alimentation des animaux (17 espèces), en tant qu’ustensiles et outils (16  espèces), pour des usages culturels (10 espèces) et pour l’alimentation humaine (9 espèces). Les feuilles (76%) sont les parties de plante les plus  exploitées. Les espèces ayant le plus d’utilisations étaient Cyperus papyrus subsp. madagascariensis (Willd.) Kük. avec 26 types d’utilisation  recensés, puis Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud. (19 types d’utilisation), Aeschynomene elaphroxylon (Guill. & Perr.) Taub. et Eichhornia  crassipes (Mart.) Solms (12 types d’utilisation chacune). Nymphaea nouchali, Cyperus papyrus subsp. madagascariensis et Phragmites australis  etaient les espèces les plus fréquemment citées par les informateurs, ce qui indique qu’elles sont importantes pour la population locale. Les types  d’utilisation les plus fréquemment cités comprenaient le joro à savoir l’invocation des ancêtres, l’alimentation, les matériaux pour la construction  des murs, les tisanes pour traiter les maladies et la construction de clôtures ou démarcation des limites de terrains. Cette étude a souligné  l’importance des zones humides de l’Alaotra en tant que source de plantes utiles pour la population locale. La gestion durable du lac Alaotra n’est  donc pas seulement nécessaire à la conservation de la biodiversité mais également au maintien des moyens de subsistance locaux

  • Analysis of wetland uses by Common mynas (Acridotheres tristis) in the
           urban environment of Antananarivo, Madagascar

    • Authors: Lalatiana O. Randriamiharisoa, Hajanirina Rakotomanana
      Pages: 33 - 40
      Abstract: The importance of wetlands as habitat and breeding grounds for waterfowls is recognized and has been extensively studied, but their  role in regulating and maintaining ecosystems is less well documented. The use of wetlands by invasive species such as Common myna (Acridotheres  tristis), considered as one of the 100 worst invasive species in the world, is largely unknown. Therefore, the Common mynas could have an influence  on the occupation of native water bird species. The objectives of this study were to assess Common myna's (1) population size, (2) spatial  occupation and (3) characteristics of foraging and roosting sites. Three urban wetlands in Antananarivo were studied: the Tsarasaotra Park, a  private site classified as a Ramsar site, the Tsimbazaza Zoological and Botanical Park in the city center, and an area near the Ikopa River, close to the SOCOBIS biscuit factory. In total, 6196 Common mynas were counted with an estimated 7.9 individuals per hectare around the roosting sites. Vigilance and foraging behaviors were less observed when individuals were at a higher stratum, with communication and resting being the most  observed behaviors at this level. Only 5.6% of wetlands are used during the day as foraging areas and 1.4% as roosting sites at night, where  Common mynas cohabitate with herons and egrets. Finally, the environmental variables collected revealed that Common mynas favor wetlands  with tall, wide trees, located far from human disturbance.
      L’importance des zones humides en tant qu’habitat et site de reproduction pour les oiseaux d’eau est reconnue et a été abondamment étudiée. Cependant, le rôle des oiseaux d’eau dans la régulation et le maintien d’écosystème est moins bien documenté. Particulièrement l’utilisation des  zones humides par des espèces envahissantes telles que le Martin triste (Acridotheres tristis), une des 100 pires espèces envahissantes dans le  monde, reste peu étudiée. Le Martin triste pourrait avoir une influence et un impact par son occupation et son comportement envahissant sur les oiseaux d’eau autochtones. Afin d'évaluer la taille de la population du Martin triste, son utilisation et occupation spatiale, ainsi que les caractéristiques écologiques de ses zones d’alimentation et de dortoir, trois zones humides du milieu urbain d’Antananarivo ont été étudiées. Il  s’agit du Parc de Tsarasaotra, un site privé classé RAMSAR, le Parc Zoologique et Botanique de Tsimbazaza dans le centre-ville, et une zone située à  proximité de la rivière Ikopa, près de l’usine de fabrication de biscuits SOCOBIS. Un nombre de 6196 observations de Martins tristes ont été réa-  lisées et l'abondance des populations a été estimée à 7.9 individus par hectare autour des dortoirs. Les observations ont aussi révélé que le Martin  triste réduit certains comportements tels que la vigilance et l’alimentation lorsqu’il est à une hauteur plus élevée et privilégie alors des comportements de communication et de repos. Il utilise 5,6% des zones humides pendant la journée en tant que site de nourrissage et 1,4%  pendant la nuit comme dortoir, où il cohabite avec des hérons et des aigrettes. Les varia-bles environnementales récoltées sur les sites ont révélé  que le Martin triste privilégie les zones humides situées loin des perturbations humaines et présentant de grands arbres à diamètre important.

  • Inventaire et typologie floristique des milieux lentiques dans le district
           de Vohipeno

    • Authors: Botovao A. Ramiandrisoa, Cyrille Maharombaka, Hery L.T. Ranarijaona
      Pages: 48 - 51
      Abstract: L’écologie des macrophytes (plantes aquatiques visibles à l’œil nu) est peu étudiée à Madagascar. L’écosystème aquatique du district de Vohipeno  (Région Vatovavy Fitovinany) n’a fait l’objet d’étude que pendant la période coloniale de 1921 à 1936. Les objectifs de cette étude sont d’améliorer la connaissance sur les macrophytes et d’établir une typologie floristique des zones humides malgaches. Au total, 43 espèces réparties entre 34  genres et 19 familles ont été recensées. Les valeurs de l’indice de Shannon Weaver ont montré une faible diversité mais une distribution hétérogène. L’analyse du coefficient de similarité de Sorensen a révélé une ressemblance entre certains sites. L’Analyse Factorielle des  Correspondances (AFC) met en exergue quatre groupements de végétaux appuyés par la Classification Ascendante Hiérarchique (CAH).
      The ecology of macrophytes (aquatic plants) has not been extensively studied in Madagascar. The aquatic ecosystem of the district of Vohipeno (Vatovavy Fitovinany) was last studied during the colonial period 1921 to 1936. The objectives of this study were to improve the knowledge on macrophytes and to make a floristic typology of Malagasy wetlands. In total 43 species distributed between 34 genera and 19 families were  recorded. The Shannon Weaver index showed low diversity but a heterogeneous distribution. The Sorensen coefficient analysis revealed  resemblances between certain sites. Correspondence Analysis (CA) highlighted four vegetation groups and was supported by Hierarchical  Clustering (HCPC).
