In machines where multiple drives are used in parallel at extremely varying loads the energy efficiency of such systems is often compromised over large working regions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Postmating Sexual Selection and its Role in Population Divergence in Beetles

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Claudia Fricke; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Callosobruchus maculatus; postmating sexual selection; speciation; laboratory selection experiment; divergence; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : Speciation is the process describing the formation of new species and is at the heart of evolutionary biology. According to the biological species concept only reproductively isolated forms are regarded good species. This thesis aims at identifying evolutionary processes that cause population divergence and, ultimately, speciation. READ MORE
