  1. 1. Spatial Modelling of Coastal Fish – Methods and Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Göran Sundblad; Ulf Bergström; Alfred Sandström; Peter Eklöv; Christian Möllmann; [2010]

    Abstract : Environmental factors influence species and habitats on multiple scales creating a mosaic of distribution patterns. Studying factors shaping these patterns are central to our understanding of population dynamics and ultimately ecosystem functioning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ecology across Boundaries Food web coupling among and within ecosystems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pia Bartels; Peter Eklöv; Lars J. Tranvik; Daniel E. Schindler; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cross-ecosystem; food web; habitat coupling; terrestrial-aquatic linkages; subsidy; allochthonous; lake ecosystem; population divergence; trait variation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Cross-boundary movements of energy and material are ubiquitous. Freshwater ecosystems receive nutrients, dissolved, and particulate organic matter from adjacent terrestrial ecosystems, whereas terrestrial ecosystems mainly receive prey organisms and detritus deposited by physical processes such as floods from freshwater ecosystems.

  3. 3. Population divergence at small spatial scales – theoretical and empirical investigations in perch

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Bergek; Mats Björklund; Teija Aho; Sarah Goodacre; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Perca fluviatilis L.; Perch; Small scale genetic differentiation; Morphometrics; Isolation by distance; Dispersal; Gene flow; Microsatellites; Spatiotemporal stability; Barriers; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; Animal Ecology; zooekologi;

    Abstract : Genetically structured populations arise when gene flow between groups of individuals is hindered by geographical, behavioural or temporal barriers. The identification of such groups is important for understanding evolution and has large implications for conservation concern. READ MORE

  4. 4. Invasion of top and intermediate consumers in a size structured fish community

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet, Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Per Ask; Lennart Persson; Daniel E Schindler; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Invasion; intraguild predation; size-structure; cannibalism; climate; temperature; Arctic char; ninespine stickleback; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; biology; biologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis I have investigated the effects of invading top and intermediate consumers in a size-structured fish community, using a combination of field studies, a lake invasion experiment and smaller scale pond and aquaria experiments.The lake invasion experiment was based on introductions of an intermediate consumer, ninespine stickleback (Pungitius pungitius L.

  5. 5. Anadromous Pike in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Olof Engstedt; Per Larsson; Henrik Svedäng; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Natural Science; Naturvetenskap;

    Abstract : The pike (Esox lucius) is a major predator and top-down regulator in the Baltic Sea where it exists in two sympatric forms. One spawn in streams and rivers and the other one spawn in the sea. During the last decades, the habitats for both of these forms have developed in a negative way. READ MORE
