This paper generalizes results on Poisson manifolds to Lie algebroids. Let us recall that the notion of Lie algebroid generalizes both the concept of Lie algebra and integrable distribution. A natural example of a Lie algebroid is the cotangent bundle of a Poisson manifold. In recent years, Lie algebroids have been extensively studied by many authors, for instance by Mackenzie and Vaisman. In this work, the author studies the geometrical structures on the prolongation of a Lie algebroid to its dual bundle. More precisely, the notion of horizontal lift is introduced, and some aspects of the geometry of a Lie algebroid endowed with a Poisson structure are investigated.
