This existential thread in their works has been largely ignored or left undeveloped in literary criticism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Community Robustness Analysis Theoretical Approaches to Identifying Keystone Structures in Ecological Communities

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Sofia Berg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Most of the world’s ecosystems suffer from stress caused by human activities such as habitat destruction, fragmentation, overexploitation of species and climate change. These factors affect the reproduction and/or survival of individual species as well as interactions between species in ecological communities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluating effects of low concentrations of oil in marine benthic communities

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology
