  1. 1. Effects of dissolved humic matter on phytoplankton

    Author : Jessica von Einem; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PAR; phytoplankton; DOC; Water colour; production;

    Abstract : Water colour is currently increasing in thousands of lakes in the northern hemisphere due to an increased input of terrestrial dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and more specifically coloured disscolved humic matter (DHM). I studied how water colour affects the light climate in the epilimnion and, as a consequence, phytoplankton biomass, species composition and production in lakes in southern Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon metabolism in clear-water and brown-water lakes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap, Department of Ecology and Environmental Sciences

    Author : Jenny Ask; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; clear-water lakes; brown-water lakes; primary production; bacterial production; benthic; pelagic; net ecosystem production; allochthonous organic carbon; CO2; DOC; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; Limnology; limnologi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The trophic state of lakes is commonly defined by the concentration of nutrients in the water column. High nutrient concentrations generate high phytoplankton production, and lakes with low nutrient concentrations are considered low-productive. READ MORE

  3. 3. Primary Marine Aerosol Production Studies using bubble-bursting experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Kim Hultin; Stockholms universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sea spray; water temperature; dissolved oxygen; photosynthesis; bacterial emissions; V-TDMA; mixing state; eddy covariance; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; tillämpad miljövetenskap; Applied Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Aerosol particles affect the Earth’s climate, although their impact is associated with large uncertainties. Primary marine aerosol represents a significant fraction of the global aerosol budget considering the Earth’s 70-percentage coverage by oceans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Grazer-induced responses in marine phytoplankton

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Johanna Bergkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phytoplankton; defence; dinoflagellate; diatoms; paralytic shellfish toxins; polyunsaturated aldehydes; chain formation;

    Abstract : Phytoplankton are the most important primary producers in the world’s oceans, yet little is known of how they avoid the constant threats from the pelagic grazers. From land it is well known that plants defend themselves by having thorns or producing compounds unpalatable to grazers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bloom dynamics and population genetics of marine phytoplankton - Community, species and population aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Karolina Härnström; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marin ekologi; Marine ecology; phytoplankton; dynamics; Skeletonema marinoi; population genetics; resting stages;

    Abstract : Phytoplankton are the most important primary producers in the world’s oceans and coastal waters, accounting for nearly half of the global net primary production. Although they are such important organisms, little is known about the ecology and dynamics of phytoplankton. READ MORE
