  1. 1. Species interactions and community structure

    Author : Peter Frodin; Technology and Social Change (WTS) Centre for Work; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Ekologi; spatial structure; local stability; enrichment; species interactions; Community structure; population dynamics;

    Abstract : In this theses I have focused on how the mechanisms of species interactions affect community structure. It is well known that certain species may have a particularly strong influence on the structure of a community. What is not fully understood is how to characterize these species that have such a strong impact on community structure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Species interactions govern evolutionary and ecological effects of population harvesting

    Author : Anna Gårdmark; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; population harvesting; species interactions; ecological community; Ekologi; Ecology; competition; predation; fisheries; spatial dynamics; maturation; population dynamics; life-history evolution; adaptation;

    Abstract : Harvesting changes population abundance and can affect adaptation of several life-history traits. Harvesting can also have indirect effects ? effects on non-target species and secondary effects on target species ? because interactions between species in a community determine the relevant ecological and evolutionary feedback environment.

  3. 3. Functional and structural characterizations of phytoplankton-bacteria interactions in response to environmental challenges

    Author : Eva Sörenson; Catherine Legrand; Elin Lindehoff; Jarone Pinhassi; Sonya Dyhrman; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Interactions; phytoplankton; microalgae; bacteria; communities; aquatic; diversity; functions; structure; species-specific; microbiome; core microbiome; response diversity; resilience; resource partitioning; competition; coexistence; amplicon sequencing; metatranscriptome; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Microorganisms, such as phytoplankton and bacteria, make up ≈70% of aquatic biomass and contribute 50-85% of the oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere. The microbial loop concept and the discovery of the large diversity in microbial communities acknowledge that biotic interactions between microorganisms in addition to resource competition enable the recycling of energy and nutrients in aquatic food webs.

  4. 4. Interactions between plants, microbes and insects

    Author : Laura J. A. van Dijk; Ayco J. M. Tack; Arjen Biere; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aboveground–belowground interactions; Anemone nemorosa; fungal pathogens; insect herbivores; plant–pathogen–insect interactions; pollination; soil microorganisms; spatiotemporal disease dynamics; Quercus robur; ekologi och evolution; Ecology and Evolution;

    Abstract : Plants interact with an astonishing diversity of insects and microorganisms. Both above- and belowground, plants are attacked by herbivores and pathogens, and interact with mutualists such as pollinating insects and beneficial microorganisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microclimate at range margins : Consequences for boreal forest understory species

    Author : Caroline Greiser; Kristoffer Hylander; Johan Ehrlén; Eric Meineri; Miska Luoto; Alistair Jump; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microclimate; species distribution; range dynamics; boreal forest; canopy cover; topography; soil moisture; air humidity; bryophytes; lichens; vascular plants; biotic interactions; forest management; biodiversity conservation; ekologi och evolution; Ecology and Evolution;

    Abstract : A warmer climate will shift species distributional range margins poleward, but near-ground microclimates may modify these shifts. Cold-adapted northern species at their rear edge may survive locally in microrefugia with a colder microclimate, and warm-adapted southern species at their leading edge may colonize stepping stone habitats with a warmer microclimate.
