    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Lek Evolution; Manacus manacus; White-bearded Manakin; Genetic Relatedness; Mating Success; Male Characteristics; Behaviour; Biologi; Biology; Biologi; populationsbiologi; Population Biology;

    Abstract : Genetic structuring is common in natural populations. It is important to identify and consider population structure when studying evolutionary processes. Recently, the discovery of genetic structuring in some lekking bird species has opened up new perspectives on our understanding of the evolution of lek mating systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dewatering aspects at the forming section of the paper machine : Rewetting and forming fabric structure

    Author : Björn Sjöstrand; Lars Nilsson; Christophe Barbier; David McDonald; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Rewetting; forming fabric; forming section; dewatering; web dryness; high vacuum suction box; vacuum dewatering; forming fabric design; numerical model; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The underlying motives of the research undertaken here are twofold: to obtain a deeper understanding of the dewatering mechanisms at the forming section of a papermaking machine and to develop numerical models that describe the flow through forming fabrics. More comprehensive knowledge of dewatering in the forming section allows suggestions to be made for improvements that reduce the amount of energy used in the process without affecting the quality of the end product.
