  1. 1. Invasion of top and intermediate consumers in a size structured fish community

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet, Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Per Ask; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Invasion; intraguild predation; size-structure; cannibalism; climate; temperature; Arctic char; ninespine stickleback; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; biology; biologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis I have investigated the effects of invading top and intermediate consumers in a size-structured fish community, using a combination of field studies, a lake invasion experiment and smaller scale pond and aquaria experiments. The lake invasion experiment was based on introductions of an intermediate consumer, ninespine stickleback (Pungitius pungitius L. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Oxygen Evolving cycle in Photosystem II studied with EPR Spectroscopy at different pH and Temperature

    University dissertation from Biochemistry Department Lund University P.O. Box 124 SE-22100 Lund Sweden

    Author : Susan F Morvaridi; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Naturvetenskap; Temperature; Natural science; pH; EPR; S cycle; Photosystem II;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Fotosyntesen är nödvändig för vårt liv på jordklotet. Fotosyntes utförs huvudsakligen av gröna växter och dessutom av vissa bakterier. READ MORE

  3. 3. Advanced Functional Materials for Intermediate-Temperature Ceramic Fuel Cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Zhan Gao; [2011]

    Abstract : Low to intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC, 500 oC-700 oC) based on doped ceria (DCO) electrolyte has attracted much attention during the last decade. However, DCO suffers from electronic conduction caused byreduction of Ce (IV) to Ce (III) at high temperatures and low oxygen partial pressures and has a high grain-boundary resistivity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of warming and nutrient enrichment on feeding behavior, population stability and persistence of consumers and their resources

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Wojciech Uszko; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; consumer-resource; Daphnia; functional response; nutrient enrichment; parameter estimation; persistence; plankton; predator-prey; stability; temperature; type II; type III; warming;

    Abstract : Consumer-resource interactions are the basic building blocks of every food web. In spite of being a central research theme of longstanding interest in ecology, the mechanisms governing the stability and persistence of consumer-resource interactions are still not entirely understood.

  5. 5. Climate change impacts on production and dynamics of fish populations

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Per Hedström; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Temperature; terrestrial dissolved organic carbon; light extinction; GPP; recruitment; winter mortality; metabolism; cohort competition; fish production; fish biomass;

    Abstract : Ongoing climate change is predicted to increase water temperatures and export of terrestrial dissolved matter (TDOM) to aquatic ecosystems influencing ecosystem productivity, food web dynamics and production of top consumers. Ecosystem productivity is mainly determined by the rates of primary production (GPP) in turn controlled by nutrients, light availability and temperature, while temperature alone affect vital rates like consumption and metabolic rates and maintenance requirements of consumers.
