  1. 1. Foraging behaviour in piscivorous fish: mechanisms and patterns

    University dissertation from Håkan Turesson, Department of Ecology, Limnology. Ecology building, 223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Håkan Turesson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; marine biology; Hydrobiology; piscivory; consumption rate; confusion effect; capture success; predation; encounter rate; prey choice;

    Abstract : Mechanistic understanding of piscivore foraging at the individual level is important in order to understand and make predictions of piscivore effects at population and community levels. To understand the mechanisms affecting selection and consumption rates each step in the foraging cycle (search, encounter, active choice, attack, capture, ingestion, digestion) should be studied.

  2. 2. An Encounter with Convolutional Codes over Rings

    University dissertation from Department of Information Technology, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Emma Wittenmark; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Telekommunikationsteknik; Data- och systemvetenskap; Telecommunication engineering; computer technology; direct sum decomposition of a ring; Systems engineering; minimal trellis; generator matrix properties; code properties; convolutional codes; codes over rings;

    Abstract : Convolutional codes is one possibility when there is a need for error-correcting codes in communication systems. Using convolutional codes over rings is a relatively new approach. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Maternal Migration Effect Exploring Maternal Healthcare in Diaspora Using Qualitative Proxies for Medical Anthropology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pauline Binder; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; caesarean section; care encounter; constructivist; interpreter use; migration; Somali; African immigrant; socio-cultural factors; International Health; Internationell hälsa;

    Abstract : This project explores the 'maternal migration effect'. Following migration to a high-income country with a low maternal mortality rate, we assume that some immigrant women’s reliance upon maternal practices that respond to a low-income, high-mortality context can adversely affect care-seeking and utilization of treatment facilities.

  4. 4. Resource- and Time-Constrained Control Synthesis for Multi-Agent Systems

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Pian Yu; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-agent systems; event-triggered communication and control; limited data rate; task scheduling; control synthesis;

    Abstract : Multi-agent systems are employed for a group of agents to achieve coordinated tasks, in which distributed sensing, computing, communication and control are usually integrated with shared resources. Efficient usage of these resources is therefore an important issue. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fish foraging under visual constraints

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Mikael Jönsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; planktivore.; piscivore; brownification; visual foraging; Turbidity;

    Abstract : Visual conditions are changing in several different ways. Some lakes are getting turbid due to eutrophication or erosion while others are getting browner due to brownification. These two types of visual degradation results in completely different optical properties of lakes. READ MORE
