La steppe d’hier, et la steppe d’aujourd’hui

Since the scientific English is mainly deveoted to teach students and researcher the way they should write academically and present appropriately their works, this module need inevitably to be practised for each of its notions and concepts. in this context I hereby provide student with these assignments.

Ce cours d'anglais scientifique vise a familiariser les étudiants avec la production scientifique rédigée majoritairement en anglais. pour ce but, le module décrit la spécificité du langage scientifique et ses critères tels que : la formalité, l'objectivité et autre. Ensuite, les techniques de la rédaction d'un phrase, d'un paragraphe et en fin une dissertation en anglais pour permettre aux étudiants de rédiger leur produits scientifiques en anglais d'une façon scientifiques et académique 

la bioclimatologie est la climatologie en relation avec la phenologie de l'etre vivant, En effet la phenologie des plantes et leur repartition géographique ainsi de la phytosociologie metre en evidence cette relation profonde et represente l'impact du climat dans ce context. Ainsi, les sorties sur terrain font la partie pratique de ce module de bioclimatlogie pour permettre à l'etudiant de temoigner le fait accompli et la realité de ce qu'il étudie theoriquement en cours.


Ce cours sert comme un outil pratique et descriptif du système climatique
et de ses mécanismes et processus qui font le climat et le temps qu’ils font
et permettent aussi de prédire le climat et le temps qu’ils feront, et ainsi
permettent de prévoir les mesures préventives convenables. En outre, ce
cours montre les effets de différents éléments du climat sur la biocénose et
la manière par laquelle ils déclenchent et contrôlent les cycles vitaux de la
majorité des êtres vivants, en particulier les plantes et déterminent ainsi
leurs répartition spécifique temporelle et spatiale. Ainsi, un essentiel de la
bioclimatologie y est donné. En outre, les effets climatiques sur le biotope
sont expliqués. En fin, les changements climatiques sont détaillés ainsi que
leurs impacts sur tous les aspects de la vie.
En outre, une partie de TD et de TP semble être utile pour pratiquer les
notions théoriques étudiées, en particulier dans la partie pratique qui
consiste à des sorties pédagogiques.
Par conséquent, ce cours semble être très utile et indispensable pour les
étudiants des spécialités où le facteur climatique intervient ; en particulier
les domaines des sciences de la vie et de la nature comme la biologie
végétale, et animale où les cycles vitaux sont régis par les rythmes
d’insolation et de températures comme l’écologie,l’agronomie, la
foresterie, l’arboriculture fruitière, l’horticulture, la biodiversité végétale,
l’agropastoralisme,l’entomologie, l’ornithologie, la phytosociologie, la
pédologie, l’hydraulique agricole, l’hydrogéologie, l’eau et
bioclimatologie ..Etc.
