  1. 1. Foraging behaviour in benthivorous fish

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Marika Stenberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; resource assessment; giving-up densities; predation risk; foraging behaviour; limnology; marine biology; Ekologi; akvatisk ekologi; limnologi; group foraging; benthivorous fish; aquatic ecology; Hydrobiology; Ecology;

    Abstract : The foraging ability of an organism is essential since it affects various traits, e.g. growth, reproduction effort, social status and, ultimately, fitness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Consumption patterns and excretion in aquatic food websenrichment

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Anders Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrobiology; trophic interactions; translocation; biomanipulation; enrichment; phosphorus; model; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis links biogeochemical cycling to classical ecology. Predictions derived from food chain theory, based on Lotka-Volterra type of interactions, were tested in aquatic environments with the main hypothesis that consumers affect lower levels of organization by both predation and excretion of limiting nutrients.

  3. 3. The neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) Sources, bioaccumulation and extraction procedures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Sandra Ferreira Lage; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Abstract : β-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) is a neurotoxin linked to neurodegeneration, which is manifested in the devastating human diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. This neurotoxin is known to be produced by almost all tested species within the cyanobacterial phylum including free living as well as the symbiotic strains. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecology of zooplankton communities: climate, dormancy, and benthic-pelagic coupling

    University dissertation from Mikael Gyllström, Limnology, Ecology Building, S-223 62, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Mikael Gyllström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; limnology; Hydrobiology; marine biology; aquatic ecology; phytoplankton; temporal stability; recruitment; seasonal succession; environmental cues; diapause; shallow lakes; predation; enrichment; climate; temperature;

    Abstract : This thesis describes how influences, such as top down and bottom up forces, shape zooplankton communities in shallow lakes. I have also extended the traditional food-web theory by investigating the effects of climate on total biomass, taxonomic composition, and temporal properties of zooplankton communities. READ MORE
