  1. 1. Understanding Multicore Performance : Efficient Memory System Modeling and Simulation

    Author : Andreas Sandberg; Erik Hagersten; David Black-Schaffer; David A. Wood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Architecture; Simulation; Modeling; Sampling; Caches; Memory Systems; gem5; Parallel Simulation; Virtualization; Sampling; Multicore; Datavetenskap; Computer Science;

    Abstract : To increase performance, modern processors employ complex techniques such as out-of-order pipelines and deep cache hierarchies. While the increasing complexity has paid off in performance, it has become harder to accurately predict the effects of hardware/software optimizations in such systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hiding and Reducing Memory Latency : Energy-Efficient Pipeline and Memory System Techniques

    Author : Andreas Sembrant; David Black-Schaffer; Erik Hagersten; David A. Wood; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Memory accesses in modern processors are both far slower and vastly more energy-expensive than the actual computations. To improve performance, processors spend a significant amount of energy and resources trying to hide and reduce the memory latency. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pastoralists and the Environmental State : A study of ecological resettlement in Inner Mongolia, China

    Author : Qian Zhang; Bo Malmberg; Andrew Byerley; Richard Black; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Environmentalisation; political ecology; grassland degradation; migration decision-making; pastoralism; environmental migration; environmental governance; China; Geography with Emphasis on Human Geography; geografi med kulturgeografisk inriktning;

    Abstract : China's quest for sustainable development has given birth to a set of contested ‘ecological construction’ programmes. Focusing on ‘ecological resettlement’, a type of policy measure in a programme for restoring degraded grasslands, this thesis sets out a critical analysis in opposition to the dominant technical and managerial approaches to understanding environmentalisation.

  4. 4. Inferring demographic history and speciation of grouse using whole genome sequences

    Author : Radoslav Kozma; Jacob Höglund; Jeff A. Johnson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Demographic history; speciation; effective population size; adaptation; willow grouse; red grouse; black grouse; rock ptarmigan; Tetraoninae; conservation genetics; climate change; PSMC; species distribution modelling; FOXP4; Agouti;

    Abstract : From an ecological perspective, knowledge of demographic history is highly valuable because population size fluctuations can be matched to known climatic events, thereby revealing great insight into a species’ reaction to past climate change. This in turn enables us to predict how they might respond to future climate scenarios. READ MORE

  5. 5. Population Genetic Structure of Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix) : From a Large to a Fine Scale Perspective

    Author : Carolina Corrales Duque; Jacob Höglund; Staffan Bensch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; black grouse; control region; demographic expansion; kin selection; lek; microsatellites; non-invasive sampling; postglacial colonisation; philopatry; phylogeography; sex-biased dispersal; spatial genetics; subspecies; suture zone; refugia; Biology; Biologi; Systematics and phylogenetics; Systematik och fylogeni; Biologi med inriktning mot populationsbiologi; Biology with specialization in Population Biology;

    Abstract : Black grouse (Tetrao tetrix) is a bird species with a lek mating system found in the Palearctic boreal taiga. It is assumed that it has a continuous distribution along Scandinavia and Siberia, whereas in Central Europe it has declined during the last decades. READ MORE
