  1. 1. Measurement and evaluation of body temperature Implications for clinical practice

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Märtha Sund-Levander; Lis Karin Wahren; Ewa Grodzinsky; Karin Axelsson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Assessment; body temperature measurement; elderly; evaluation; infection; nursing home; pneumonia; survival; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The general aim was to explore factors influencing the normal variation and measurement of body temperature. Additional aims were to study morbidity, mortality and the clinical presentation of pneumonia and predictors for survival in elderly nursing-home residents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wear mechanisms in sheet metal forming Effects of tool microstructure, adhesion and temperature

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Anders Gåård; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materialteknik; Materials Engineering; Galling; sheet metal forming; wear; friction; adhesion; temperature;

    Abstract : The general trend in the car body manufacturing industry is towards low-series production and reduction of press lubricants and car weight. The limited use of lubricants, in combination with the introduction of high and ultrahigh-strength sheet materials, continuously increases the demands on the forming tools. READ MORE

  3. 3. Avian thermoregulation across age and seasons

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet, Media-Tryck

    Author : Fredrik Andreasson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-12-18]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ambient temperature; body temperature; Cyanistes caeruleus; energy expenditure; hypothermia; life-history theory; metabolic rate; Parus major; thermoregulation; trade-off; winter ecology;

    Abstract : Animals constantly need to relate to prevailing environmental conditions and regulate their body temperature accordingly. Body temperature regulation in birds and mammals is inherently linked to energy expenditure and, thus, thermoregulation is a physiological mechanism that could trade-off with other costly processes, with potential long-term fitness consequences.

  4. 4. The effects of temperature on avian physiology, behavior and development

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Andreas Nord; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; clutch size; Cyanistes caeruleus; ecological immunology; energy expenditure; fever; Ficedula hypoleuca; heterothermy; hypothermia; incubation; life history; metabolic rate; Parus major; RMR; Taeniopygia guttata; temperature; winter;

    Abstract : Temperature is a property of profound matter in all aspects of animal life, affecting both individual energy budgets and the environments in which animals reside. Thus, a proper understanding of the effects of temperature variation is instrumental in understanding not only animal form and function, but also the structure and dynamics of wild populations.

  5. 5. Local Adaptation, Countergradient Variation and Ecological Genetics of Life-history Traits in Rana Temporaria

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ane Timenes Laugen; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; amphibians; Bergmanns rule; body size clines; countergradient variation; developmental rate; FST; temperature; QST; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; populationsbiologi; Population Biology;

    Abstract : The main aim of this work was to identify local adaptation processes in amphibian populations, thereby improving the general understanding of genetics and mechanisms behind the evolution and maintenance of biological diversity. Phenotypic and genetic variation in life-history traits was studied within and between populations common frog (Rana temporaria) populations along a 1600 km transect from southern Sweden to northern Finland.
