  • Le thème de ce numéro d'hiver de Magazine Gaspésie, le monde de l'enfance, particulièrement celle d'autrefois : celle des familles nombreuses, de la camaraderie, des rituels religieux, du voisinage tissé serré, des traditions. Sept auteurs se relaient pour évoquer le passé de manière pittoresque à travers des récits autobiographiques qui incluent les souvenirs de nul autre que René Lévesque! La chronique Archives donne quant à elle de nouveau la parole à Charles Robin, personnalité marquante du XVIIIe siècle dans la région. D'autres articles nous brosseront le portrait de municipalités (le poste de pêche Manche-d'Épée) ou d'individus engagés politiquement (Joseph Sasseville-Roy et Évariste Dubé). À noter qu'en collaboration avec le magazine, le Musée de la Gaspésie présentera également jusqu'en mai 2017 une exposition sur le thème de l'enfance.

  • Forages, Volume I, Seventh Edition is the most comprehensive text available for teachers of undergraduate Forages courses. This edition will provide students with a good balance of scientific principles, to aid in integrating the concepts they learn, and practical information on forage identification, plant characteristics, management, and utilization that can be used by forage management practitioners. Grassland ecosystems are extremely complex, including the plant/animal interface as well as the soil/climate/forage interface and the text must support understanding and integration of all of these considerations. The coverage of the science behind the plant characteristics and responses make the book applicable in many parts of the world, while other region-specific management information relates mainly to North America.
    This edition has been updated to address emerging areas of study, including the use of forage plants as bioenergy crops. The editors also address the renewed national interest in environmental issues such as water quality, global climate change and eutrophication in the Gulf. This edition also addresses the role of forages for wildlife habitat and food sources, another area of increased interest in recent years. These revisions respond to the generational change taking place among forage scientists and teachers in recent years.

  • Forages: The Science of Grassland Agriculture, 7th Edition, Volume II will extensively evaluate the current knowledge and information on forage agriculture.
    Chapters written by leading researchers and authorities in grassland agriculture are aggregated under section themes, each one representing a major topic within grassland science and agriculture. This 7th edition will include two new additional chapters covering all aspects of forage physiology in three separate chapters, instead of one in previous editions. Chapters will be updated throughout to include new information that has developed since the last edition.
    This new edition of the classic reference serves as a comprehensive supplement to An Introduction to Grassland Agriculture, Volume I.
