    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Rovdjur påverkar strukturen och artsammansättningen i de flesta system. Både genom att äta upp bytesdjur och genom att inducera olika typer av försvar hos bytesdjuret kan rovdjur påverka andra organismer i systemet. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stopover Ecology of Mallards Where, when and how to do what?

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Daniel Bengtsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Age characters; body condition; departure decision; effects of influenza A virus; habitat selection; mallard; movement; Ottenby Bird Observatory; stopover ecology; weather; wild birds; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) is the most numerous and widespread duck in the northern hemisphere and a model species in ecology and harvest management. Migration is a crucial life stage for many birds and understanding the drivers of migration has important implications for conservation biology and assessment of animal population responses to global changes.

  4. 4. Methane dynamics in northern wetlands: Significance of vascular plants

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Joabsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquatic ecology; marine biology; Hydrobiology; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; climate change; arctic wetlands; northern wetlands; plant-microbe interactions; methane emission; vascular plants; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Metan är en växthusgas med stor potential att påverka klimatet på Jorden. Den vattenmättade miljön i våtmarker erbjuder perfekta livsbetingelser för metanproducerande bakterier och detta medför att naturliga våtmarker är den största enskilda källan till metan i atmosfären, även då man räknar med antropogena utsläpp från, till exempel, förbränning av fossila bränslen.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Brukandet av jordbrukslandskapet har förändrats dramatisk under det senaste århundradet. Det tidigare mosaikartade landskapet, med en blandning av små åkrar, ängar, hagar och våtmarker, har idag i många områden ersatts av ett likformigt landskap som domineras av vidsträckta åkrar.
