  2. 2. Phenotypic Processes Triggered by Biological Invasions

    Author : Philipp E Hirsch; Richard Svanbäck; Skúli Skúlason; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Resource polymorphism; phenotypic plasticity; phenotypic divergence; anti-predator responses; Perca fluviatilis; Rutilus rutilus; Dreissena polymorpha; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Individuals within a single population can vary widely in their phenotype e.g. in their body shape. These differences are an important source of biodiversity and they can precede evolutionary divergence within a population. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of young-of-the-year fish in lake ecosystems

    Author : Pia Romare; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrobiology; Rutilus rutilus; Perca fluviatilis; diet-dependent growth; density dependent growth; behavioural cascade; 0 fish behaviour; horizontal echo sounding; biomanipulation; trophic cascade; predation pressure; young-of-the-year fish; trophic interactions; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Food chain theory is based on consumption; that is, presupposing that the only important interaction between organisms is that they actually meet in an unstructured environment and that one of them is consumed. Recently, studies, including biomanipulation projects, have indicated that trophic interactions are more complex than predicted by food chain theory. READ MORE

  4. 4. The estrogen receptor in fish and effects of synthetic estrogens in the environment - Ecological and evolutionary perspectives and societal awareness

    Author : Lina Nikoleris; Biodiversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; the estrogen receptor; salmon evolution and ecology; contraceptives; information gaps; synthetic hormones; EE2; Atlantic salmon Salmo salar ; brown trout Salmo trutta ; roach Rutilus rutilus ;

    Abstract : Synthetic hormones are a group of pharmaceuticals used for various human and animal treatments. However, consumption and disposal of these substances have also given rise to negative effects and environmental problems for organisms in the wild which is why these substances have been classified as estrogenic endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

  5. 5. Environmental influence on Hg and 137Cs levels in perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) and roach (Rutilus rutilus L.) from circumneutral lakes

    Author : Lars Sonesten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Hg; 137Cs; fish; PLS; land use; cations; humic substances; circumneutral; Biologi; Biology; Biologi; limnologi; Limnology;

    Abstract : Mercury and radioactive caesium have received immense attention in Sweden during the past decades, as common contaminants in fish. This thesis examines how the Hg and 137Cs levels in fish from 79 circumneutral lakes are affected by various environmental factors. READ MORE
