  1. 1. Predatory processes in Baltic benthos

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Gunilla Ejdung; Stockholms universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The Baltic soft-bottom community is uniquely simple, with only a few benthic macro-faunal species, and is therefore well suited for mechanistic studies of inter-specific interactions. Two of the dominating organisms in this benthic community are the amphipod Monoporeia affinis and the bivalve Macoma balthica. Field surveys have shown that M. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spatial distribution and conservation planning of seabed biological diversity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Genoveva Gonzalez-Mirelis; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial autocorrelation; ecological classifications; distribution modelling; biotopes; conservation planning; biodiversity surrogates; GIS; spatial ecology; benthos; fjord;

    Abstract : Knowledge of spatial patterns of biota has become a commodity for conservation practitioners and spatial ecologists alike. This type of information enables the identification of representative and unique biological features (at some nominal scale) which itself constitutes the application par excellence of knowledge of biodiversity distribution as it relates to the design of reserve networks and the realization of spatial planning.

  3. 3. Habitat compensation in nature-like fishways Effects on benthos and fish

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Stina Gustafsson; Karlstads universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biocanal; biodiversity; brown trout; freshwater pearl mussel; functional feeding groups; habitat heterogeneity; large woody debris; macroinvertebrates; PIT-tag; salmonids; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : The construction of nature-like fishways has become an increasingly common measure to restore longitudinal connectivity in streams and rivers affected by hydroelectric development. These fishways also have the potential to function as habitat compensation measures when running waters have been degraded or lost. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wave energy conversion and the marine environment Colonization patterns and habitat dynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olivia Langhamer; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; artificial reefs; benthos; biodiversity; biofouling; colonization; environmental impact; fish; shellfish; Mytilus edulis; renewable energy; wave power; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : A wave energy park has been established on the Swedish west coast outside Lysekil and pioneer work about its interactions with the marine environment has been conducted. So far, little is known about the effects of offshore energy installations on the marine environment, and this thesis assists in minimizing environmental risks as well as in enhancing potential positive effects on the marine environment.

  5. 5. Nutrient Stoichiometry in Benthic Food Webs – Interactions Between Algae, Herbivores and Fish

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Antonia Liess; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Ecology; ecologial stoichiometry; periphyton; grazer; benthos; trophic interactions; nutrient; algae; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to identify general structuring mechanisms in benthic food webs within the framework of ecological stoichiometry theory. Ecological stoichiometry is defined as the balance of multiple chemical substances in ecological interactions and explicitly considers the combined dynamics of key elements such as carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).
