  1. 1. Evolution of the Biodiversity Hotspot of Madagascar from the Eye of Diving Beetles Phylogeny, colonization and speciation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Rasa Bukontaite; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dytiscidae; diving beetles; Biogeography; Phylogeny; Dating; phylogenetic informativeness; colonization; speciation; microendemism; Madagascar; Systematic Zoology; systematisk zoologi;

    Abstract : Dytiscidae, contains numerous endemic and non-endemic species on Madagascar. Their evolutionary history is largely unknown on the island. Herein, I use analyses to infer phylogenetic relationship among groups of diving beetles, with a focus on the subfamily Dytiscinae and endemic species in two other groups of Dytiscidae. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Biodiversity of Hydrogenases in Frankia Characterization, regulation and phylogeny

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysiologisk botanik

    Author : Melakeselam Leul Zerihun; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biodiversity; Frankia; immunoblotting; gene expression; uptake hydrogenase; hydrogen-evolving hydrogenase; nickel; phylogeny; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : All the eighteen Frankia strains isolated from ten different actinorhizal host plants showed uptake hydrogenase activity. The activity of this enzyme is further increased by addition of nickel. Nickel also enhanced the degree of hydrogenase transfer into the membranes of Frankia, indicating the role of this metal in the processing of this enzyme. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Gene Repertoire of G protein-coupled Receptors New Genes, Phylogeny, and Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Þóra Kristín Bjarnadóttir; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacology; Bioinformatics; Evolution; GPCR; Phylogeny; Farmakologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning;

    Abstract : The superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) is one of the largest protein families of mammalian genomes and can be divided into five main families; Glutamate, Rhodopsin, Adhesion, Frizzled, and Secretin. GPCRs participate in most major physiological functions, contributing to the fact that they are important targets in drug discovery. READ MORE

  4. 4. Taxonomy and phylogeny of polychaetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jenny Eklöf; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polychaeta; Phyllodocidae; Alciopidae; pelagic polychaetes; phylogeny; cryptic species;

    Abstract : Polychaetes are a large group of segmented worms that display an enormous morphological diversity. Molecular data has shown in recent years that groups previously thought to be separate from polychaetes are actually part of the group. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gastrotricha of Sweden - Biodiversity and Phylogeny

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Tobias Kånneby; Naturhistoriska riksmuseet.; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Diversity of life; Livets mångfald; taxonomy; systematics; phylogeny; new species; cryptic species; Chaetonotidae; Dasydytidae; Thaumastodermatidae; Systematic Zoology; zoologisk systematik och evolutionsforskning;

    Abstract : Gastrotricha are small aquatic invertebrates with approximately 770 known species. The group has a cosmopolitan distribution and is currently classified into two orders, Chaetonotida and Macrodasyida. The gastrotrich fauna of Sweden is poorly known: a couple of years ago only 29 species had been reported. READ MORE
