  1. 1. Studies on the Life Cycles of Akinete Forming Cyanobacteria

    Author : Irene Karlsson Elfgren; Kurt Pettersson; Peter Blomqvist; Tore Lindholm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; limnology; akinete; germination; recruitment; Biologi; Biology; Biologi; limnologi; Limnology;

    Abstract : Cyanobacteria which can form resting cells (in this case akinetes) are common in meso-eutrophic lakes in temperate regions, often dominating the phytoplankton communities during summer. The life cycles of akinete-forming cyanobacteria has been studied with Gloeotrichia echinulata as a model organism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Greenhouse Gas Dynamics in Ice-covered Lakes Across Spatial and Temporal Scales

    Author : Blaize Amber Denfeld; Gesa Weyhenmeyer; Kimberly Wickland; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : carbon cycle; climate change; cryosphere; carbon dioxide; methane; lakes; winter limnology; methane oxidation; nutrients; catchment; Limnologi; Limnology;

    Abstract : Lakes play a major role in the global carbon (C) cycle, despite making up a small area of earth’s surface. Lakes receive, transport and process sizable amounts of C, emitting a substantial amount of the greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), into the atmosphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. Combining limnology and paleolimnology : a refined understanding of environmental sediment signal formation in a varved lake

    Author : Dominique Béatrice Maier; Christian Bigler; Sebastian Diehl; Jasmine E. Saros; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; varved lake sediments; diatom sediment signal formation; sequential sediment trap; seasonal process timing; ice thinning; varve compaction; climate impact; catchment properties; Earth Sciences with Specialization Environmental Analysis; geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys;

    Abstract : Paleoclimatic archives, such as lake sediments, extend our understanding of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem dynamics in relation to climate variability beyond the period covered by instrumental data. In this context, annually laminated (i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of solar radiation on the abiotic and bacterially mediated carbon flux in aquatic ecosystems

    Author : Alexandre Magno Anesio; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacteria; dissolved inorganic carbon DIC ; bioavailability; aquatic macrophytes; photooxidation; detritus decomposition; Ultraviolet radiation; dissolved organic carbon DOC ; fungi; Hydrobiology; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : In this Thesis, I studied some of the current aspects of organic matter photochemistry. I analyzed abiotic phototransformations of several types of dissolved (DOM) and particulate organic matter (POM). I also evaluated the effects of phototransformation of several types of DOM on bacteria. READ MORE

  5. 5. The origin and fate of sediment organic carbon in tropical reservoirs

    Author : Anastasija Isidorova; Sebastian Sobek; Rafael Marcé; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; methane; carbon burial; tropical reservoirs; sediment; carbon cycle; limnology; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Recently, the construction of reservoirs has boomed, particularly in the tropics, but the impact of reservoirs on the global carbon cycle is not evident. Reservoirs accumulate sediments that simultaneously bury organic carbon (OC) and thus act as a C sink, and also produce methane (CH4) and thus emit a strong greenhouse gas. READ MORE
