  1. 1. Sub-lethal Effects of Anthropogenic Contaminants on Aquatic Invertebrates

    Author : Warren Kunce; Frank Johansson; Jan Örberg; Sarah Josefsson; Jes Rasmussen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ecotoxicology; sub-lethal; behavior; biomarkers; thermal tolerance; pesticides; pyrethroids; neonicotinoids; pharmaceuticals; antihistamines; microplastics; mixtures; freshwater; invertebrates; chironomids; damselflies; snails; Biology with specialization in Animal Conservation; Biologi med inriktning mot zoologisk bevarandebiologi;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic contaminants are considered to play a substantial role in the decline of freshwater invertebrate diversity. Sub-lethal effects of many of these contaminants on behaviour and life-history traits of aquatic invertebrates may contribute to their decline. READ MORE

  2. 2. Intimate partner violence among women in Sweden - a clinical study of experience, occurrence, severity of violence and of the care given

    Author : Darcia Pratt-Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : emergency care; intimate partner violence; experience; caring; lethal violence; trauma-informed care;

    Abstract : Each year a significant number of women are killed or seriously injured as a result of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). Healthcare professionals have a vital role to play in identifying IPV in their day-to-day encounters with women seeking treatment and care in a variety of healthcare settings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing Sub-Lethal Impacts of Petroleum Compounds on Marine Benthic Systems

    Author : Fredrik Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; subletala effekter; mikrobiellt samhälle; meiofauna; petroleum; PAH; bildanalys;

    Abstract : Petroleum and its different distillates commonly end up in the marine environment. One source of these additions is discharges originating from shipping activities; accidents, ship wrecks, operational spills etc. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure-function analysis of HAMLET (human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells)

    Author : Jenny Pettersson; immunologi och glykobiologi - MIG Avdelningen för mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha-lactalbumin HAMLET oleic acid protein folding tumor cell death;

    Abstract : The human genome sequence encodes fewer proteins than expected, suggesting that one protein can have several functions and adjust their structure to meet different structural demands. Changes in tertiary structure have mostly been associated with disease and the most striking example is the prion protein, which changes from a mixed alpha-helical and beta-sheet conformation to the beta-sheet rich, disease causing iso-form.

  5. 5. Predator-prey interactions in freshwater systems: The importance of chemical communication

    Author : Kajsa Åbjörnsson; Enhet akvatisk ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi; Hydrobiology; trophic cascades; non-lethal effects; benefits; costs; heredity; predator experience; alarmsubstances; dietary cues; amphibian larvae; invertebrates; visibility; fish; behaviour; Predator-prey; chemical cues;

    Abstract : Predator released chemical cues provide a valuable source of information to prey organisms that can be used to alter their behaviour in order to reduce predation risk. In this thesis, I have examined under what circumstances chemical cues may be used by prey, and if prey discriminate between different cues. READ MORE
