Abstract
The production of conifer seedlings for reforestation uses genetic improvement techniques that have been in place for several decades. They have allowed to considerably improve the vigor and the growth of the reproduced species. To these techniques have been added genomic selection and somatic embryogenesis, two techniques made possible by scientific advances in genetics, computer science and cell culture.
Abstract
La production de plants de conifères pour le reboisement fait appel à des techniques d’amélioration génétique mises en place depuis quelques décennies. Elles ont permis d’améliorer considérablement la vigueur et la croissance des espèces reproduites. À ces techniques viennent de s’ajouter la sélection génomique et l’embryogenèse somatique, deux techniques rendues possibles grâce aux avancées scientifiques en génétique, en informatique et en culture cellulaire.

Abstract
This study aimed to evaluate, in an accelerated manner, several aerodynamic drag reduction measures applicable to Class 8 tractor-trailer combinations. The tests were conducted according to SAE J1321 Joint TMC/SAE Fuel Consumption Test Procedure - Type II (SAE International 1986). The test results show up to 5% improvement in fuel consumption for the test vehicles equipped with boat tail devices, and up to 7% for the vehicles equipped with trailer skirts.

Abstract
This article is the third in a series of four articles presenting different citizen science projects conducted at the Canadian Forest Service. Forest Service. For many years, a research group from the Laurentian Forestry Centre Laurentian Forestry Centre of the Canadian Forest Service has Forestry Centre of the Canadian Forest Service has been pursuing a project genetic diversity of poplars. The territory to be covered is to cover is vast, so how to obtain samples from all from all locations? It is by innovative citizen science approach that this team was able to that this team was able to meet this challenge.
Abstract
Cet article est le troisième d’une série de quatre articles présentant différents projets de science citoyenne réalisés au Service canadien de forêts. Depuis nombre d’années, un groupe de recherche du Centre de foresterie des Laurentides du Service canadien des forêts poursuit un projet d’analyse de la diversité génétique sur les peupliers. Le territoire à couvrir est vaste, alors comment obtenir des échantillons provenant de tous les endroits? C’est en adoptant une approche innovante de science citoyenne que cette équipe a su relever ce défi.
