  1. 1. Convergence in mixed reality-virtuality environments : facilitating natural user behavior

    Author : Daniel Johansson; Leo J. de Vin; Morten Fjeld; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mixed reality. augmented reality; augmented virtuality; head mounted display; omnidirectional floor; natural interface; telepresence; Datalogi; Computer and Systems Science;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the subject of converging real and virtual environments to a combined entity that can facilitate physiologically complying interfaces for the purpose of training. Based on the mobility and physiological demands of dismounted soldiers, the base assumption is that greater immersion means better learning and potentially higher training transfer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Plant phenology in seasonal environments

    Author : Elsa Fogelström; Johan Ehrlén; Johan P. Dahlgren; Arthur Weis; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Autumn phenology; Cardamine pratensis; evolutionary ecology; heritability; herbivore preference; fitness components; flowering time; growing season length; life-history; Lathyrus vernus; natural selection; population differentiation; phenology; spring phenology; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Phenology, or the seasonal timing life-history events such as emergence, reproduction and senescence will determine the outcome of interactions between plants and both abiotic and biotic aspects of the environment. Such timing is therefore of utmost importance for plants in seasonal environments. READ MORE
