  1. 1. Incubators and incubation -Resources and activities in relation to different actors

    Author : Lise Aaboen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; policy actor; financial actor; incubator; incubation; university; resources; new technology-based firm;

    Abstract : ABSTRACTIncubators prepare new technology-based firms (NTBFs) for the obstacles ahead, they complement and develop the entrepreneurial ability of the firm founder, advise regarding financing, as well as providing structure and credibility to the firm. Incubators accelerate the development of the firms towards growth, create an entrepreneurial and innovative climate in the region, and contribute to the commercialization of research results from the university.

  2. 2. The effects of temperature on avian physiology, behavior and development

    Author : Andreas Nord; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; clutch size; Cyanistes caeruleus; ecological immunology; energy expenditure; fever; Ficedula hypoleuca; heterothermy; hypothermia; incubation; life history; metabolic rate; Parus major; RMR; Taeniopygia guttata; temperature; winter;

    Abstract : Temperature is a property of profound matter in all aspects of animal life, affecting both individual energy budgets and the environments in which animals reside. Thus, a proper understanding of the effects of temperature variation is instrumental in understanding not only animal form and function, but also the structure and dynamics of wild populations.

  3. 3. Nesting ecology of the grass snake (Natrix natrix) and its implications for conservation

    Author : Kristin Löwenborg Di Marino; Mattias Hagman; Sören Nylin; Tobias Uller; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agriculture; anthropogenic; climate; embryonic development; incubation; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The onset of agriculture about 12,000 years ago has had a major influence on the biodiversity of plants and animals. Unfortunately, the rapid changes in agricultural practices that has occurred in recent times has negatively affected many farmland species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Causes and consequences of individual variation in energy turnover rates

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; energy turnover rate; metabolic rate; BMR; RMR; life history; oxidative stress; carotenoids; incubation; Parus palustris; Cyanistes caeruleus; Taeniopygia guttata;

    Abstract : Individual energy turnover rates can vary remarkably, even within a species. In this thesis I study the causes and consequences of this pronounced variation and show that individual energy turnover rates can be affected by a large number of factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Compositional clues to sources and sinks of terrestrial organic matter transported to the Eurasian Arctic shelf

    Author : Emma Karlsson; Örjan Gustafsson; Volker Brüchert; Thorsten Dittmar; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; organic carbon; degradation; microcosm; incubation; terrestrial biomarkers; acyl lipids; lignin phenols; radiocarbon; Eurasian Arctic shelf; East Siberian Sea; Laptev Sea; Lena River; colloidal matter; particulate matter; sedimentary matter; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The amount of organic carbon (OC) present in Siberian Arctic permafrost soils is estimated at twice the amount of carbon currently in the atmosphere. The shelf seas of the Arctic Ocean receive large amounts of this terrestrial OC from Eurasian Arctic rivers and from coastal erosion. READ MORE
