  1. 1. Small remnant habitats Important structures in fragmented landscapes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Jessica Lindgren; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alpha-diversity; Beta-diversity; Biological pest control; Canopy cover; Connectivity; Ecosystem function; Fleshy fruits; Forest edge; Forest management; Forest specialist species; Fragmentation; Functional diversity; Gamma-diversity; Grassland specialist species; Green infrastructure; Habitat amount hypothesis; Island biogeography; Midfield islets; Plant diversity; Plant-pollinator interaction; Pollination; Remnant habitat; Seed predation; Small habitats; Species richness; Structural heterogeneity; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The world-wide intensification of agriculture has led to a decline in species richness due to land use change, isolation, and fragmentation of natural and semi-natural habitats in agricultural and forestry landscapes. As a consequence, there is a current landscape management focus on the importance of green infrastructure to mitigate biodiversity decline and preserve ecosystem functions e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hidden Diversity Revealed Genomic, Transcriptomic and Functional Studies of Diplomonads

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diversity of soil microbial communities: In the perspective of targeting functional genes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lokeshwaran Manoharan; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soil; metagenomics; sequence capture; microbial communities; functional diversity; taxonomic diversity;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Soil as an ecosystem is a reservoir for several living organisms including microorganisms, earthworms, collembolans, nematodes and protozoans. They are involved in cycling the nutrients through degrading the organic compounds (source of carbon essential for all living organisms) like plant residues and respire part of it as carbon dioxide.

  4. 4. Calreticulins- Calcium-Binding Proteins with Functional Diversity and Evolutionary Duality

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Staffan Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; plant; isoforms; evolution; diversity; differential regulation; chaperone; calnexin; calmegin; calcium; Arabidopsis; calreticulin; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Calreticulin is a multifunctional protein mainly localized in the endoplasmic reticulum in eukaryotic organisms, except yeasts. The protein comprises three distinct regions: the N-terminal N domain, the C-terminal C domain, and the central P domain, reflecting the functional diversity of calreticulin. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cross-functional brain imaging of attention, memory, and executive functions Unity and diversity of neurocognitive component processes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Psykologi

    Author : Petter Marklund; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Human memory; executive functions; prefrontal cortex; sustained and transient neural activity; declarative long-term memory; attention; working memory; functional neuroimaging; cognitive control.; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : The central theme of the present thesis revolves around the exploration of similarities and differences in brain activity patterns invoked by the component processes underlying mnemonic, executive and attentional functions. The primary aim was to identify and functionally characterize commonly recruited brain regions in terms of shared component processes, which has been a largely neglected area of research in cognitive neuroscience.
