  2. 2. From Birth to Senescence. Studies on factors at birth and their relation to morbidity in women in adult life

    Author : Susan W. Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; birth weight; birth length; gestational age; recall; epidemiology; longitudinal; middle age; women; blood pressure; hypertension; cancer;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with factors at birth and their relation to disease in later adulthood. The aims of this thesis were to a) identify variables in Swedish midwife records at the early part of the 1900's and their relation to birth outcome; b) assess agreement between self-reported birth weight and recorded birth weight; and, c) examine the relationship between size at birth and 1) hypertension, and, 2) cancer morbidity in adult women.

  3. 3. Nutrition and Oxidative Parameters in Pregnancy, Size at Birth and Metabolic Status of the Offspring at 4.5 Years : The MINIMat Trial in Rural Bangladesh

    Author : Emma Lindström; Eva-Charlotte Ekström; Lars-Åke Persson; Samar Basu; Tessa Roseboom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Pregnancy; micronutrient deficiency; anemia; birth size; food supplementation; micronutrient supplementation; metabolic status; childhood; International Health; Internationell hälsa;

    Abstract : Undernutrition and oxidative stress in fetal life and infancy may lead to adverse health outcomes in the offspring. We studied nutrition and oxidative parameters in pregnancy and their associations with birth anthropometry and metabolic status in the children. READ MORE

  4. 4. Food Web Ecology -- individual life-histories and ecological processes shape complex communities

    Author : Martin Hartvig; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; food web; community ecology; community assembly; size-structure; life-history omnivory; ontogeny; trophic interactions; trait based model; topology; emergent organisation; size-spectrum;

    Abstract : This thesis sets out a food web framework for size-structured populations. The framework enables an ecological approach to food web modelling as the individual life-history from birth, through maturation, and ultimately death is explicitly resolved with the use of bioenergetics based on individual body size.
