  1. 1. Seabirds as food for thought : An integrative study on seabird ecology and ecosystem services in changing marine systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Author : Martina Kadin; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; seabirds; ecosystem services; social-ecological systems; marine systems; fisheries; foraging ecology; provisioning behaviour; common murre; common guillemot; Uria aalge; Stora Karlsö; Baltic Sea; Natural Resources Management; naturresurshushållning;

    Abstract : The importance of the benefits that humans obtain from the oceans is increasingly recognized, along with the rapid decline in marine resources that threatens these benefits. Studying seabirds – top predators in marine ecosystems, can provide insights about multiple pressures and the state of the oceans. READ MORE

  2. 2. Man, murres and modern fisheries : A case study in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Abstract : Overfishing and climate change put increasing pressure on marine systems, with effects on commercially targeted fish and top predators dependent on these resources. To achieve sustainable resource use, governance mechanisms need to incorporate knowledge about ecosystem dynamics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Robust Water Balance Modeling with Uncertain Discharge and Precipitation Data Computational Geometry as a New Tool

    Abstract : Models are important tools for understanding the hydrological processes that govern water transport in the landscape and for prediction at times and places where no observations are available. The degree of trust placed on models, however, should not exceed the quality of the data they are fed with. READ MORE

  4. 4. Culture, Conflict and Crises in the Icelandic Fisheries An Anthropological Study of People, Policy and Marine Resources in the North Atlantic Arctic
