  1. 1. Uptake and fate of pathogenic microbes in the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Bodil Hernroth; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mytilus edulis; bivalve; immune response; lipopolysaccharide; LPS; antimicrobial peptide; gamma camera; radiolabelling; Salmonella typhimurium; sanitary safety; public health;

    Abstract : Bivalves, like the blue mussel Mytilus edulis, are filter-feeders and can therefore accumulate high numbers of microbes from the surrounding water. These shellfish are considered the main risk for bringing pathogens from domestic outlets in the sea, back to the community. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wave energy conversion and the marine environment Colonization patterns and habitat dynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olivia Langhamer; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; artificial reefs; benthos; biodiversity; biofouling; colonization; environmental impact; fish; shellfish; Mytilus edulis; renewable energy; wave power; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : A wave energy park has been established on the Swedish west coast outside Lysekil and pioneer work about its interactions with the marine environment has been conducted. So far, little is known about the effects of offshore energy installations on the marine environment, and this thesis assists in minimizing environmental risks as well as in enhancing potential positive effects on the marine environment.

  3. 3. Predator-induced phenotypic plasticity in the marine mussel Mytilus edulis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Olof Reimer; Stockholms universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systems Ecology; systemekologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis I investigated whether the risk of predation can induce development of defensive traits in the blue mussel Mytilus edulis, a common species of the temperate seashores. I performed a series of field and laboratory experiments in which I exposed blue mussels to waterborne scents from its main predators, the starfish Asterias rubens, and the shore crab Carcinus maenas.

  4. 4. Blue Oceans with Blue Mussels - Management and planning of mussel farming in coastal ecosystems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Per Bergström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coastal management; Mytilus edulis; Growth; Planning; Modelling; Predict; Restoration; Mitigation; Aquaculture; Bioturbation;

    Abstract : Eutrophication is one of the largest and most serious global threats to the marine environment. The effect of eutrophication has become increasingly clear during recent time, and major economic and political efforts are being made to tackle its causes and consequences in Sweden and its surrounding seas.

  5. 5. Characterization and persistence of potential human pathogenic vibrios in aquatic environments

    University dissertation from Kristianstad : Kristianstad University

    Author : Betty Collin; Högskolan Kristianstad.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vibrio cholerae; Vibrio parahaemolyticus; Mozambique; Sweden; molluscs; occurrence; persistence; sediment; TCBS; PCR; PhP; antibiotic resistance; microbiology; Vibrio spp.; Mytilus edulis;

    Abstract : Vibrio spp., natural inhabitants of aquatic environments, are one of the most common causes of bacterial gastroenteritis in the world, being spread to humans via the ingestion of seafood, contaminated drinking water or exposure to seawater. The majority of Vibrio spp. are avirulent, but certain strains may sporadically be human pathogenic. READ MORE
