  1. 1. Vegetation changes on Swedish mires Effects of raised temperature and increased nitrogen and sulphur influx

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Gunnarsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Acidification; growth; long-term studies; mires; nitrogen; species richness; Sphagnum; succession; sulphur; temperature; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Abstract : Since the start of the industrialisation, the deposition of nitrogen and sulphur and the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased. The main objectives of this study were to find how these changes in climate and deposition can change the vegetation of mire ecosystems and the growth of Sphagnumspecies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Essays on Growth, Political Economy and Development

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Economics, Stockholm University

    Author : Abdulaziz B. Shifa; Stockholms universitet.; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Growth; human capital transfer; productivity; catch-up; Urban bias; rural poverty; dictatorship; Agricultural growth; manufacturing growth; instrumental variable; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : This thesis has three self-contained articles.Economic growth and trade in human capital: A salient empirical pattern in the East Asian “miracle” is a large increase in output and factor accumulation despite  only a modest increase in TFP. I develop and calibrate a model of growth and catch-up to provide a possible explanation. READ MORE

  3. 3. CVD Growth of Silicon Carbide for High Frequency Applications

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Urban Forsberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Material physics with surface physics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Materialfysik med ytfysik;

    Abstract : Silicon Carbide (SiC) is an important wide band gap semiconductor with outstanding electronic properties. With figures of merit far better than silicon, SiC is believed to replace and outcompete silicon in many applications using high frequencies, high voltage and high temperatures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transforming growth factor-ß. Signal regulation in health and disease

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Urban Molander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TGF-b; BMP; Smad; signal transduction; LDL; skin tumour; mesangial;

    Abstract : TGF-b superfamily members have been shown to play a pivotal role in multicellular organisms. Knowledge about signal transduction pathways is important in order to understand and cure diseases like cancer where TGF-b´s growth inhibitory signal often are disenabled via mutated or absent signalling components.

  5. 5. About hyaluronan in the hypertrophic heart studies on coordinated regulation of extracellular matrix signalling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Urban Hellman; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hyaluronan; hyaluronan synthases; gene expression; extracellular matrix; cardiac hypertrophy; rat wistar; male ; cardiomyocytes; growth factors; fibroblasts; microvesicles; exosomes; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Background. Myocardial hypertrophy is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Independent of underlying disease, the cardiac muscle strives in different ways to compensate for an increased workload. This remodelling of the heart includes changes in the extracellular matrix which will affect systolic and diastolic cardiac function. READ MORE
