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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Josefin Sagerman; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant invasion; exotic species; generalist herbivores; plant-herbivore interactions; enemy-release hypothesis; ecosystem function; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Henrik Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Benedict Jaeschke; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Radioecology; ionising radiation; environmental protection; Mytilus edulis; bioaccumulation; dose-response; ecotoxicology; tritium; particle; hypoxia; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    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. Role of sediment organic matter quality and benthic organisms for the fate of organic contaminants in marine systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Maria E. Granberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sediment; ecotoxicology; macrofauna; bacteria; PAH; PCB;

    Abstract : Marine sediments constitute important contaminant sources within our environment. Organic matter input to marine sediments changes seasonally in terms of both quantity and quality, and has been profoundly altered in many coastal areas due to eutrophication. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Systemekologiska institutionen

    Author : Andreas Prevodnik; Stockholms universitet.; Södertörns högskola.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP 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.
