  1. 1. Ecological connectivity in East African seascapes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Charlotte Berkström; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fish; functional group; food-web interactions; nursery; coral; seagrass; mangrove; landscape ecology; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangroves constitute a complex mosaic of habitats referred to as the tropical seascape. Great gaps exist in the knowledge of how these systems are interconnected. This thesis sets out to examine ecological connectivity, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Seaweed in the tropical seascape Importance, problems and potential

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Stina Tano; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Seaweed; Macroalgae; Eucheumoids; Non-indigenous; Haplotype; Fish; Nursery; Epifauna; Diversity; Seaweed farming; Zanzibar; East Africa; Tropical; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : The increasing demand for seaweed extracts has led to the introduction of non-native seaweeds for farming purposes in many tropical regions. Such intentional introductions can lead to spread of non-native seaweeds from farming areas, which can become established in and alter the dynamics of the recipient ecosystems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of suitable nursery areas for penaeid shrimps in shallow water systems in southern Mozambique

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Daniela de Abreu; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tropics; Southeast Africa; Shallow water; Estuaries; Nursery ground value; Decapods; Penaeidae; Carbon and nitrogen isotopes; Diet; Acetyl cholinesterase; Butyryl cholinesterase; Metals;

    Abstract : Tropical shallow water habitats such as estuaries, mangrove forests and seagrass beds are important nursery areas for juveniles of many commercially important species including penaeid shrimp. Penaeids are one of the most important fishery resources worldwide, and in Mozambique they are the basis of a profitable commercial fishery, landing hundreds of tons per year. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecology of juvenile turbot and flounder in the Central Baltic Sea Implications for recruitment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Jesper Martinsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Psetta maxima; Platichthys flesus; juvenile; Baltic Sea; nursery ground; distribution; recruitment; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Our understanding of turbot and flounder ecology in the Baltic Sea is insufficient for sound management decisions. This thesis aims to fill some gaps in current knowledge by providing information of the ecology of turbot and flounder within their juvenile habitat, and to relate these findings to issues assumed relevant for recruitment variation.
