  1. 1. Functional Traits in Sphagnum

    Author : Fia Bengtsson; [2019-02-21]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; peat mosses; functional traits; NPP; decay resistance; N2 fixation; destination resistance; climate;

    Abstract : Peat mosses (Sphagnum) are ecosystem engineers that largely govern carbon sequestration in northern hemisphere peatlands. I investigated functional traits in Sphagnum species and addressed the questions: (I) Are growth, photosynthesis and decomposition and the trade-offs between these traits related to habitat or phylogeny?, (II) Which are the determinants of decomposition and are there trade-offs between metabolites that affect decomposition?, (III) How do macro-climate and local environment determine growth in Sphagnum across the Holarctic?, (IV) How does N2 fixation vary among different species and habitats?, (V) How do species from different microtopographic niches avoid or tolerate desiccation, and are leaf and structural traits adaptations to growth high above the water table?Photosynthetic rate and decomposition in laboratory conditions (innate growth and decay resistance) were related to growth and decomposition in their natural habitats.

  3. 3. Anabolic Androgenic Steroids and Criminality

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fia Klötz; Ingemar Thiblin; Niklas Långström; [2008]
    Keywords : Psychiatry; Anabolic steroids; Violence; Crime; Substance abuse; Psykiatri;

    Abstract : Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) have been associated with adverse psychiatric effects, aggression and violent behaviour. The use of them has spread to a larger subpopulation, and the use has been connected to different risk behaviours, such as use of other illicit substances and carrying a gun. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multidetection and chemometrics in flow injection analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Robert Tryzell; Elo H. Hansen; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : An ideal method for the determination of ions in aqueous solutions should be fast, inexpensive, simple, reliable and require small sample volumes. Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) is in many respects such an ideal method but it is too often limited to the determination of one analyte at a time. READ MORE
