  1. 1. Design of a Total-Reflection X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer and Application to Periphyton Communities

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Patrik Pettersson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fysik; Physics; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; total-reflection X-ray fluorescence spectrometry; TXRF; periphyton; phytoplankton; microalgae; environmental trace element analysis; sample preparation; nitric acid-hydrogen peroxide digestion;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis deals with the use of total-reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) spectrometry for trace element analysis of periphyton. A TXRF spectrometer was designed and its performance was evaluated with a plankton reference material. For 12 .my. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Toxicant-Induced Succession in Periphyton Communities: Effects of Single Chemicals and Chemical Mixtures

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Tobias Porsbring; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; community ecotoxicology; toxicant-induced succession; chemical mixtures; concentration addition; independent action; diatoms; periphyton; algal pigments; algal sterols;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the effects of single chemicals and chemical mixtures on biological communities. Ecosystems are exposed to complex mixtures of chemicals, and because combination effects can occ... READ MORE

  3. 3. Impacts of Antifouling Compounds on Photosynthesis, Community Tolerance and psbA Genes in Marine Periphyton

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Karl Martin Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PICT; antifouling; periphyton; photosynthesis; D1; psbA; tolerance; resistance;

    Abstract : Toxicants can act as selective pressures in the environment, eliminating sensitive genotypes or species and favouring tolerant ones. Such toxicant-induced selection can be detected in natura... READ MORE

  4. 4. Hazard assessment of ciprofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole and triclosan for marine periphyton : Ecotoxicology, Pollution Induced Community Tolerance and Co-Tolerance

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Henrik Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecotoxicology; Antibioitcs; Antimicrobial agents; Ciprofloxacin; Sulfamethoxazole; Triclosan; Community ecotoxicology; Periphyton; Toxicant-induced succession; Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance PICT ;

    Abstract : Antibiotics and personal care products are used in large quantities and commonly detected in various environmental compartments. The two antibiotics, ciprofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole, and the personal care product triclosan are among the most commonly detected compounds in sewage treatment plants and aquatic environments.

  5. 5. Nutrient Stoichiometry in Benthic Food Webs – Interactions Between Algae, Herbivores and Fish

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Antonia Liess; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Ecology; ecologial stoichiometry; periphyton; grazer; benthos; trophic interactions; nutrient; algae; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to identify general structuring mechanisms in benthic food webs within the framework of ecological stoichiometry theory. Ecological stoichiometry is defined as the balance of multiple chemical substances in ecological interactions and explicitly considers the combined dynamics of key elements such as carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).
