  1. 1. Sex and symbionts New discoveries in local and regional patterns of coral ecology and reproduction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Micaela Hellström; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Indo-Pacific; S. elegans; G. fascicularis; Symbiodinium; size; reproduction; allozymes; ITS2; mtDNA; geography; environment; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Coral reefs belong to the most diverse and the most threatened ecosystems on earth. Anthropogenic stressors and climate change have led to mortalities at levels unprecedented in modern times. The aims of this thesis are to investigate aspects of the corals’ ability to reproduce, disperse, adapt and survive. READ MORE

  2. 2. Importance of blue mussels for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in subtidal habitats

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of System Ecology, Stockholm Univeristy

    Author : Pia Norling; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; blue mussel; Mytilus spp.; ecosystem engineering; habitat-modifier; diversity; facilitation; ecosystem functioning; ecosystem services and water quality maintenance; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Blue mussels, Mytilus spp., occur on rocky and sedimentary shores worldwide where they often form dense aggregates. These assemblages change the local environment and create unique habitats. READ MORE

  3. 3. The importance of biodiversity for ecosystem processes in sediments experimental examples from the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Johan Näslund; Stockholms universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biodiversity; Soft-bottom sediment; Ecosystem processes; Ecosystem function; Benthic-pelagic coupling; Baltic Sea; Trophic interactions; Pollutant biodegradation; Organic matter mineralization; Deposit feeder; Detritivore; Invasive species; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Aquatic sediments are, by surface, the largest habitat on Earth. A wide diversity of organisms inhabit these sediments and by their actions they have a large influence on and also mediate many ecosystem processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecological connectivity in East African seascapes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Charlotte Berkström; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fish; functional group; food-web interactions; nursery; coral; seagrass; mangrove; landscape ecology; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangroves constitute a complex mosaic of habitats referred to as the tropical seascape. Great gaps exist in the knowledge of how these systems are interconnected. This thesis sets out to examine ecological connectivity, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ecological and physiological aspects of contaminant accumulation and transport by the filter-feeding mussel, Mytilus edulis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Mikael Björk; Stockholms universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the influence of food availability on the bioaccumulation kinetics and the transport of hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) by the Baltic Sea blue mussel, Mytilus edulis. In laboratory studies, food availability was found to significantly modify the rate of physiological processes involved in filter-feeding. READ MORE
