  1. 1. Nominal Morphology in Russian Correspondence 1700-1715 : Part One - Part Two

    Author : Isabelle Midy; Barbro Nilsson; Viktor Zhivov; Per Ambrosiani; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History of the Russian language; morphology; nominal morphology; historical morphology; nomina; substantives; adjectives; pronouns; numerals; paradigm; paradigm shift; morphological change; Russian language; Ryska språket; slaviska språk; Slavic Languages;

    Abstract : The materials examined here consist of 121 Russian letters dating from 1700-1715. The present study aims to  define a stage in linguistic evolution and analyze the morphological heterogeneity in the textual corpus. The letters are divided into three categories: private, semiofficial, and official. READ MORE

  2. 2. Geographic Distribution of Intra-specific Variation in Widespread Eurasian boreo-nemoral Woodland Herbs

    Author : Torbjörn Tyler; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; kemotaxonomi. Växters fysiologi inte kärlväxter .; Plant genetics; Växtgenetik; morfologi; chemotaxonomy. Physiology of nonvascular plants; Systematisk botanik; taxonomi; phytogeography; morphology; taxonomy; historical biogeography; Systematic botany; allozymes; population differentiation; postglacial migration; genetic variation; geographic variation;

    Abstract : Many woodland plant species have huge distribution areas covering large parts of the Eurasian continent including areas that were glaciated during the last glacial period. In the present thesis, the geographic distribution of variation within such species is investigated and discussed in relation to glacial survival and post-glacial migration, dispersal ability, breeding system and levels of gene-flow between populations and related species, and various methods to measure and analyse genetic variation.

  3. 3. Spikemoss patterns : Systematics and historical biogeography of Selaginellaceae

    Author : Stina Weststrand; Petra Korall; Michael J. Donoghue; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Selaginellaceae, spikemosses, is a heterosporous plant family belonging to the lycophytes. With an estimated age of some 350 million years, the family is historically important as one of the oldest known groups of vascular plants. Selaginellaceae is herbaceous with a worldwide distribution. However, the majority of the ca. READ MORE

  4. 4. The morphology and evolutionary significance of the anomalocaridids

    Author : Allison Daley; Graham E. Budd; Nigel C. Hughes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anomalocaridids; Cambrian; Burgess Shale; exceptional preservation; palaeontology; Historical geology and palaeontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi; Historical Geology and Paleontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Abstract : Approximately 600 to 500 million years ago, a major evolutionary radiation called the “Cambrian Explosion” gave rise to nearly all of the major animal phyla known today. This radiation is recorded by various fossil lagerstätten, such as the Burgess Shale in Canada, where soft-bodied animals are preserved in exquisite detail. READ MORE

  5. 5. Large-scale releases of native species : the mallard as a predictive model system

    Author : Pär Söderquist; Högskolan Kristianstad; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Human alteration of natural systems, and its consequences are of great concern and the impact on global ecosystems is one of the biggest threats that biodiversity stands before. Translocations of invasive species, as well as intraspecific contingents with non-native genotypes, whether they are deliberate or unintentional, are one such alteration and its consequences are continuously being assessed.
