  2. 2. Avian thermoregulation across age and seasons

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet, Media-Tryck

    Author : Fredrik Andreasson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-12-18]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ambient temperature; body temperature; Cyanistes caeruleus; energy expenditure; hypothermia; life-history theory; metabolic rate; Parus major; thermoregulation; trade-off; winter ecology;

    Abstract : Animals constantly need to relate to prevailing environmental conditions and regulate their body temperature accordingly. Body temperature regulation in birds and mammals is inherently linked to energy expenditure and, thus, thermoregulation is a physiological mechanism that could trade-off with other costly processes, with potential long-term fitness consequences.

  3. 3. Evaluation of physical work capacity and leg muscle fatigue during exhaustive stair ascending evacuation

    University dissertation from Printed in Sweden by Media-Tryck, Lund University

    Author : Amitava Halder; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-04-27]
    Keywords : Stair climbing; Energy expenditure; Oxygen consumption; Electromyography; Muscle fatigue;

    Abstract : AbstractPhysical exhaustion can constrain human ascending work capacity and performance during emergency evacuation on stairs. The overall aim of this research was to explore and compare stair ascending capacities and physiological limitations during two different strategies: self-preferred pace in three different public stairways in the field, and controlled pace in a laboratory on a stair machine.

    Abstract : Since the ending of the Cold War, the defence sector, particularly the areas of military logistics and defence acquisition, has been undergoing a comprehensive transformation. There are several factors that explain this transformation: changes in defence and security policies for nations and organisations; reductions in defence expenditure; participation in Peace Support Operations; Lessons Learned from these operations, especially in the area of logistics; revolutionary development in the area of Information and Communication Technology; emergence of novel Commercial Best Practises in the areas of business and business logistics; and changes in the legislation regarding the conduct of public procurement in Europe.
