  1. 1. Buellia species with pluriseptate spores and the Physciaceae (Lecanorales, Ascomycotina) : Taxonomic, phylogenetic and ultrastructural studies

    Author : Anders Nordin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Buellia; Diplotomma; phylogenetic analysis; pluriseptate spores; Physciaceae; taxonomy; ultrastructure; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; systematisk botanik; Systematic Botany;

    Abstract : This dissertation is primarily focused on the Buellia species with pluriseptate spores, often referred to the section or genus Diplotomma, and secondarily on the Physciaceae. An ultrastructural study at family level gives new information on spore characters. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecules and morphology in Empidoidea (Diptera) : Phylogenetic analysis and taxonomical implications

    Author : Emma Wahlberg; Kjell Arne Johanson; Thomas Pape; Jeffrey Cumming; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Empidoidea; Empididae; Hybotidae; phylogeny; taxonomy; systematics; molecular data; morphology; revision; Systematic Zoology; zoologisk systematik och evolutionsforskning;

    Abstract : The classification and evolutionary history of the superfamily Empidoidea (Diptera) have been far from straightforward subjects. Morphology based phylogenies of the superfamily have been unable to answer many questions raised by both systematists and biogeographers, as well as ecologists and ethologists, partly due to morphological modifications and adaptations difficult to interpret.

  3. 3. Mitochondrial and Eukaryotic Origins : A Phylogenetic Perspective

    Author : Björn Brindefalk; Siv Andersson; James McInerney; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular evolution; Phylogenetics; Mitochondrial origin and Evolution; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Mitochondria are eukaryotic cellular organelles responsible for power-generation, believed to have come into existence by an endo-symbiontic event where a bacterial cell was incorporated by an un-specified "proto-eukaryote". Phylogenetic analysis have shown that the mitochondrial ancestor was most related to present-day alpha-proteobacteria, although the exact nature of the mitochondrial progenitor remains disputed.

  4. 4. Mitochondrial and chromosomal genomics in type 2 diabetes

    Author : Avinash Abhyankar; Genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adaptive evolution; nuclear-mitochondrial interaction; linkage analysis; QTL; phylogenetic analysis; congenic; type 2 diabetes; GK rat;

    Abstract : Understanding the mechanisms of complex polygenic diseases like type 2 diabetes (T2D) is as complex as their nature. Cellular processes involved in glucose homeostasis need high and reliable energy supply. Mitochondria are the major energy producers in mammalian cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reticulate Evolution in Diphasiastrum (Lycopodiaceae)

    Author : Sunniva Margrethe Due Aagaard; Niklas Wikström; Tom A. Ranker; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; admixture analysis; Bayesian clustering; Diphasiastrum; Feulgen DNA image densitometry; homoploid hybridization; Lycopodiaceae; phylogenetic analysis; polyploidy; reticulate evolution; Systematics and phylogenetics; Systematik och fylogeni; systematisk botanik; Systematic Botany;

    Abstract : In this thesis relationships and the occurrence of reticulate evolutionary events in the club moss genus Diphasiastrum are investigated. Diphasiastrum is initially established as a monophyletic group within Lycopodiaceae using non recombinant chloroplast sequence data. READ MORE
