  1. 1. Marine seaweed invasions : Impacts and biotic resistance in native ecosystems

    Author : Josefin Sagerman; Sofia Wikström; Fransisco Arenas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant invasion; exotic species; generalist herbivores; plant-herbivore interactions; enemy-release hypothesis; ecosystem function; marin ekotoxikologi; Marine Ecotoxicology;

    Abstract : Marine seaweeds constitute one of the most productive plant systems known on Earth and a rich fauna including juvenile fish and crustaceans is dependent on the habitats they form. Human influence on marine costal ecosystems has resulted in large scale changes to the abundance and distribution of species, where species introductions constitute an obvious part. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hazard assessment of ciprofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole and triclosan for marine periphyton : Ecotoxicology, Pollution Induced Community Tolerance and Co-Tolerance

    Author : Henrik Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Ecotoxicology; Antibioitcs; Antimicrobial agents; Ciprofloxacin; Sulfamethoxazole; Triclosan; Community ecotoxicology; Periphyton; Toxicant-induced succession; Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance PICT ;

    Abstract : Antibiotics and personal care products are used in large quantities and commonly detected in various environmental compartments. The two antibiotics, ciprofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole, and the personal care product triclosan are among the most commonly detected compounds in sewage treatment plants and aquatic environments.

  3. 3. Exploring phenomena that affect the fate and impact of radioactive materials in the blue mussel

    Author : Benedict Jaeschke; Clare Bradshaw; Andrew Turner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Radioecology; ionising radiation; environmental protection; Mytilus edulis; bioaccumulation; dose-response; ecotoxicology; tritium; particle; hypoxia; marin ekotoxikologi; Marine Ecotoxicology;

    Abstract : Current protection of the marine environment from radiation is based largely on measuring, estimating and modelling accumulation and impact(s) of radionuclides in a few marine species. Using a relevant marine organism, this thesis focusses on investigating some poorly described phenomena that could cause deviations from predicted measurements. READ MORE

  4. 4. The use of protein biomarkers in ecotoxicology : Studies of oxidative and genotoxic stress in the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis)

    Author : Andreas Prevodnik; Michael Tedengren; Tomas Bollner; Kari Lehtonen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Biologi; Ecotoxicology; ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Many environmental pollutants, heavy metals and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) among them, are toxic by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress may be defined as a state in an organism when its inherent capacity to handle oxyradicals is surpassed, and it may result in peroxidation of lipids, and damage to proteins and DNA.

  5. 5. Effects of community- and government-managed marine protected areas on tropical seagrass and coral communities

    Author : Angelica Chirico; Johan Eklöf; Nils Kautsky; Even Moland; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coastal ecosystems; conservation; marine spatial planning; locally managed; fisheries closure; benthic communities; fish; foundation species; macroalgae; secondary succession; life-history; trait variability; plasticity; tourism; human disturbance; fishing; experimental research; Western Indian Ocean; causal modelling; structural equation model; permanova; multivariate data; marin ekotoxikologi; Marine Ecotoxicology;

    Abstract : Tropical seagrass beds and coral reefs are among the most productive and diverse ecosystems on Earth and provide ecosystem services, such as fish production and coastal protection, and support livelihoods of millions of people. At the same time, these ecosystems are threatened globally by anthropogenic disturbances, such as overfishing, pollution and global warming. READ MORE
