  1. 1. On Toxicant-Induced Succession in Periphyton Communities: Effects of Single Chemicals and Chemical Mixtures

    Author : Tobias Porsbring; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : community ecotoxicology; toxicant-induced succession; chemical mixtures; concentration addition; independent action; diatoms; periphyton; algal pigments; algal sterols;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the effects of single chemicals and chemical mixtures on biological communities. Ecosystems are exposed to complex mixtures of chemicals, and because combination effects can occ... READ MORE

  2. 2. Impacts of Antifouling Compounds on Photosynthesis, Community Tolerance and psbA Genes in Marine Periphyton

    Author : Karl Martin Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : PICT; antifouling; periphyton; photosynthesis; D1; psbA; tolerance; resistance;

    Abstract : Toxicants can act as selective pressures in the environment, eliminating sensitive genotypes or species and favouring tolerant ones. Such toxicant-induced selection can be detected in natura... READ MORE

  3. 3. Hazard assessment of ciprofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole and triclosan for marine periphyton : Ecotoxicology, Pollution Induced Community Tolerance and Co-Tolerance

    Author : Henrik Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Ecotoxicology; Antibioitcs; Antimicrobial agents; Ciprofloxacin; Sulfamethoxazole; Triclosan; Community ecotoxicology; Periphyton; Toxicant-induced succession; Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance PICT ;

    Abstract : Antibiotics and personal care products are used in large quantities and commonly detected in various environmental compartments. The two antibiotics, ciprofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole, and the personal care product triclosan are among the most commonly detected compounds in sewage treatment plants and aquatic environments.

  4. 4. Nutrient Stoichiometry in Benthic Food Webs – Interactions Between Algae, Herbivores and Fish

    Author : Antonia Liess; Peter Eklöv; Dag Hessen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Ecology; ecologial stoichiometry; periphyton; grazer; benthos; trophic interactions; nutrient; algae; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to identify general structuring mechanisms in benthic food webs within the framework of ecological stoichiometry theory. Ecological stoichiometry is defined as the balance of multiple chemical substances in ecological interactions and explicitly considers the combined dynamics of key elements such as carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).

  5. 5. Submerged macrophytes in shallow eutrophic lakes - regulating factors and ecosystem effects

    Author : John A Strand; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine biology; Hydrobiology; plasticity; seed banks; periphyton; grazing; alternative stable state; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis I have studied factors that regulate submerged macrophyte abundance, morphology and distribution in shallow eutrophic lakes, and how submerged macrophytes may affect the ecosystem. Light attenuation through the water column (turbidity and water depth) is probably not the most important factor regulating the distribution of submerged vegetation in macrophyte dominated shallow eutrophic lakes, e.
