  2. 2. Ecology and evolution of tolerance in two cruciferous species

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Elin Boalt; Södertörns högskola.; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Other biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Övrig biologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi; herbivory; tolerance; methodology; Raphanus raphanistrum; Cardamine pratensis; folivory; apex removal; plant competition; ploidy levels; herbivore pressure;

    Abstract : Tolerance to herbivory is the ability of plants to maintain fitness in spite of damage. The goal of this thesis is to investigate the genetic variation and expression of tolerance within species, determine whether and in what conditions tolerance has negative side-effects, and how tolerance is affected by different ecological factors.

  3. 3. Context dependency of plant – animal interactions

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

    Author : Malin A. E. König; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anthocharis cardamines; attack intensity; Cardamine pratensis; cytotype; herbivory; larval fitness; oviposition; phenology; plant-animal interactions; plant resistance; plant tolerance; polyploidy; spatial variation; trait variation; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : The strength and direction of interactions between organisms vary spatially across the landscape. Traditionally, the focus has been on how trait variation affects the interactions between species. However, differences in abiotic and biotic environmental factors may also alter the distribution, phenology and behavior of the interacting species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Plant polyploidy and interactions with insect herbivores

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Leena Arvanitis; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diversicifation; herbivory; host plant preference; plant galls; plant-insect interactions; plant polyploidy; selection; spatial variation; trait-fitness relationship; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Polyploidization has been suggested to be a common mechanism for plant speciation. Polyploidy is associated with changes in plant traits and altered habitat preference. READ MORE
