  1. 1. Fish in the coastal seascape : exploring ecological processes and connectivity for conservation of temperate fish communities

    Author : Thomas Staveley; Martin Gullström; Mats Björk; Regina Lindborg; Emma Jackson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; seascape ecology; landscape ecology; seagrass; marine habitats; fish; spatial analysis; connectivity; conservation; Sweden; temperate; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology;

    Abstract : The need to understand patterns and processes in the marine environment has never been so profound as today, particularly as anthropogenic pressures upon coastal regions are drastically affecting habitats and species across a vast range. One approach to further understand these patterns and processes is through the use of seascape ecology methods. READ MORE

  2. 2. MULTIFOCAL SPHERICAL FISH LENSES

    Author : Yakir Gagnon; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multifocal Lens; Adaptation; Dispersion; Spherical lens; Model; Fish; Ray-trace; Longitudinal Chromatic Aberration; Longitudinal Spherical Aberration; Modulation Transfer Function; Point Spread Function; Refractive Index Gradient;

    Abstract : Vision is an important source of information for many animals. The lens plays a central role in the visual pathway and hence the ecology of these animals. Fish have spherically shaped crystalline lenses that contain a gradient of refractive index. Like all refracting elements, lens performance depends on the wavelength of the refracted light.

  3. 3. Endocrine disruption in fish : Effects of 17α-ethinylestradiol exposure on non-reproductive behavior, fertility and brain and testis transcriptome

    Author : Tove Porseryd; Inger Porsch Hällström; Ioanna Katsiadaki; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 17α-ethinylestradiol; endocrine disrupting chemical; fish; behavior; fertility; transcriptome; RNA sequencing; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : Aquatic environments are the end recipient for most anthropogenic chemical pollutants. One common chemical pollutant found in the aquatic environment is 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2), a synthetic estrogen used in contraceptive pills. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gill EROD Activity in Fish : A Biomarker for Waterborne Ah-receptor Agonists

    Author : Alexandra Abrahamson; Ingvar Brandt; Björn Brunström; Janneche Utne Skaare; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biology; biomarker; fish; gill; CYP1A; EROD; environmental monitoring; induction; inhibition; PAH; PCB; produced water; Biologi;

    Abstract : Induction of the cytochrome P450(CYP)1A protein and the connected increase in 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity are common biomarkers in fish. Enhanced activity of this protein signals exposure to Ah-receptor agonists such as chlorinated dioxins, co-planar polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and certain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

  5. 5. Fish for Food and Ecosystem Function : Fisheries, Trade and Key Ecosystem Processes in Coral Reefs

    Author : Matilda Thyresson; Magnus Nyström; Edward H. Allison; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; fish; food; key ecosystem processes; functional groups; coral reefs; trade; gear; small-scale fisheries; social-ecological systems; Zanzibar; Tanzania; Western Indian Ocean; Natural Resources Management; naturresurshushållning;

    Abstract : Fish is a key source of food and income to millions of people living along tropical coastlines. They also play essential roles underpinning key ecosystem processes in coral reefs. For example, herbivorous fish keep algae in check that otherwise may outcompete corals, reducing the reef’s social-ecological values. READ MORE
