  1. 1. Evolution and taxonomy of Cambrian arthropods from Greenland and Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Stein; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cambrian; Arthropods; Trilobites; Evolution; Greenland; Sweden; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Historical geology and palaeontology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Abstract : Arthropods have a rich fossil record spanning the Phanerozoic. Biomineralized forms such as the extinct trilobites are particularly common and are proven index fossils for biostratigraphy. Forms with an unmineralized cuticle are more rare, preserved only in so called konservat lagerstätten. READ MORE

  2. 2. The impact of cormorant nesting colonies on plants and arthropods

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Botany, Stockholm University

    Author : Gundula S. Kolb; Stockholms universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; seabirds; cormorants; islands; nitrogen; phosphorus; plants; arthropods; δ15N; Baltic Sea; ecological stoichiometry; species richness; species composition; numeric response; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; växtekologi; Plant Ecology;

    Abstract : Seabirds concentrate large amounts of marine nutrients on their nesting islands. This nutrient input can have large consequences for island food webs and community structure. The high nutrient load may also cause runoff into surrounding waters and affect marine communities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Predators in low arctic tundra and their impact on community structure and dynamics

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi och geovetenskap

    Author : Maano Aunapuu; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; arthropods; coexistence; community dynamics; competition; food webs; hypothesis of exploitation ecosystems; intraguild predation; small mustelids; trophic cascades; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The abundance of predators and their impact on ecosystem dynamics is a vividly discussed topic in current ecology. In my studies, incorporating field observations, field experiments and theoretical modeling, I explored the importance of predators and predation in a low arctic tundra ecosystem in northern Norway.

  4. 4. Community and food web assembly on virgin habitat islands - The nunatak saga

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Maria Ingimarsdottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; allochthonous material; arthropods; community assembly; corridor; dispersal; Iceland; metacommunity; nunataks; primary succession; stable isotopes.;

    Abstract : The classical view of primary community assembly is that colonisation by plants is essential before invertebrates can establish. It has been recognised, however, that invertebrates can establish before plants, and that they may be important in the first steps of community assembly. READ MORE
