  1. 6. Variation in Pseudorchis albida s.l. (Orchidaceae) and Carex capitata s.l. (Cyperaceae) : Morphology, genetic diversity, ecology and systematics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lars-Gunnar Reinhammar; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Pseudorchis; Carex; morphologic variation; allozymes; immigration history; regeneration niche; biodiversity; ordinations; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; systematisk botanik; Systematic Botany;

    Abstract : In the Scandinavian flora, several species-pairs where one member is an alpine species andthe other is a closely related lowland species, have been described. The aim of this studywas to investigate two such examples, viz. Pseudorchis albida s.s. READ MORE

  2. 7. Ecology across Boundaries Food web coupling among and within ecosystems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pia Bartels; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cross-ecosystem; food web; habitat coupling; terrestrial-aquatic linkages; subsidy; allochthonous; lake ecosystem; population divergence; trait variation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Cross-boundary movements of energy and material are ubiquitous. Freshwater ecosystems receive nutrients, dissolved, and particulate organic matter from adjacent terrestrial ecosystems, whereas terrestrial ecosystems mainly receive prey organisms and detritus deposited by physical processes such as floods from freshwater ecosystems.

  3. 8. Local adaptive pigmentation in Asellus aquaticus -effects of UV-radiation and predation regime

    University dissertation from Limnology, Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; limnology; aquatic ecology; marine biology; Hydrobiology; Ekologi; Ecology; damselfly; perch; UV-avoidance; isopod; anti-predator traits; evolution; selective predation; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Animal ecology; Djurekologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vattengråsuggan Asellus aquaticus är ett väldigt vanligt ryggradslöst djur i många typer av svenska vatten. Den kan bli över 10 mm stor och äter allt från dött organiskt material till levande alger och växter. Färgen hos gråsuggan kan variera mycket mellan olika miljöer. READ MORE

  4. 9. Benthic diatoms in the Gulf of Bothnia Community analysis and diversity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Svenja Busse; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Baltic Sea; Biodiversity; Biomass; Community ecology; Diatoms; Multivariate analysis; Navicula; Phytobenthos; Salinity gradient; Scale; Size; Water movement; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; Ecological Botany; Ekologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Benthic diatoms are valuable tools for biological monitoring and paleo-ecological reconstruction of past environmental conditions. This thesis aims at describing size-related properties of benthic diatoms and suggests that data assessment for community analysis can be improved by considering the importance of scale. READ MORE

  5. 10. Plumage Colours and the Eye of the Beholder The Ecology of Colour and its Perception in Birds

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olle Håstad; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; ultraviolet; colour vision; opsin; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Virtually all diurnal birds have tetrachomatic vision based on four different colour receptors. As a result, birds are potentially able to perceive their environment in twice as many colours as humans and four times as many colours compared to most other mammals, which are dichromatic. READ MORE
