The results presented in this thesis include an analysis of sex-biased genes encoded on the X and Y chromosomes of rodents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Addressing water scarcity in the Bolivian Altiplano for sustainable water management

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Claudia Canedo Rosso; [2019-05-16]

    Abstract : Water scarcity is a consequence of complex interactions between water access and water use. In fact, the time period over which precipitation deficit accumulates is a determing factor for the occurrence of drought. Drought induces crop production losses and far-reaching societal effects. In the South American Altiplano, drought is a major hazard. READ MORE
