  1. 1. Direct and indirect effects of fish predation and excretion in aquatic food webs

    University dissertation from Limnologiska avdelningen, Ekologihuset S-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : José Luiz Attayde; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine biology; Hydrobiology; zooplankton; resilience; predation; phytoplankton; nutrient enrichment; nutrient recycling; interaction strength; herbivory; food webs; food chain; excretion; fish; detritus; detritivory; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the mechanisms by which planktivorous fish can affect planktonic communities in lakes and how they may affect benthic communities through their effects on planktonic communities. In a laboratory experiment, nutrients released by fish increased algal biomass and altered phytoplankton community structure, suggesting that fish can affect phytoplankton by directly releasing nutrients.

  2. 2. Coarse detritus in oligotrophic lake littoral zones utilization by intervertebrates and contribution to carbon flow

    University dissertation from Limnologiska avdelningen, Ekologihuset S-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Irene Bohman; Jan Herrman; Lars Tranvik; Jan Stenson; Mark O. Gessner; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Shredders; Biodiversity; Ecosystem; Limnology; Nattsländor; Sjöar; Kol; Biologisk nedbrytning; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : Syftet med denna avhandling är att öka förståelsen av hur grovt organiskt material, sk grovdetritus, tex löv och makrofytrester, bryts ner i sjöars strandzoner. Motivet bakom intresset för detta är att små näringsfattiga sjöar i skogsrika områden ofta är beroende av tillförsel av energi utifrån och att nedbrytningen av grovdetritus är relativt lite undersökt i sjöar.

  3. 3. Effects of solar radiation on the abiotic and bacterially mediated carbon flux in aquatic ecosystems

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Alexandre Magno Anesio; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacteria; dissolved inorganic carbon DIC ; bioavailability; aquatic macrophytes; photooxidation; detritus decomposition; Ultraviolet radiation; dissolved organic carbon DOC ; fungi; Hydrobiology; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : In this Thesis, I studied some of the current aspects of organic matter photochemistry. I analyzed abiotic phototransformations of several types of dissolved (DOM) and particulate organic matter (POM). I also evaluated the effects of phototransformation of several types of DOM on bacteria. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions between Bacteria and Fungi on Aquatic Detritus – Causes and Consequences

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Cecilia Mille-Lindblom; Lars Tranvik; Helmut Fischer; Eric Chauvet; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; bacteria; fungi; decomposition; antagonism; extracellular enzymes; competition; macrophytes; dissolved organic carbon DOC ; ergosterol; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Bacteria and fungi dominate the decomposition of aquatic plants, a major process in the carbon and nutrient cycling in many aquatic systems. Although phylogenetically distant, bacteria and fungi often live in close proximity with each other. Since these microorganisms also have similar ecological functions, interactions have developed between them. READ MORE

  5. 5. Revealing the role of shredders and detritus in open-canopy, intermittent streams

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Karolina Leberfinger; Jan Herrmann; Manuel A.S. Graça; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : Many streams run through naturally-unforested, agricultural, and residential landscapes and thus do not have closed riparian canopies. Little is known of food web dynamics and ecosystem function in such open-canopy streams. READ MORE
