  1. 1. Role of phagotrophy in freshwater phytoplankton

    University dissertation from Carina Pålsson, Limnology, Ecology Building, S-223 62, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Carina Pålsson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquatic ecology; marine biology; limnology; mixotrophy; phagotrophy; phytoplankton; oligotrophic; clear-water lakes; grazing; competition; nutrient enrichment; autotrophy; heterotrophy; bacterial ingestion; Hydrobiology; Marinbiologi; akvatisk ekologi; limnologi;

    Abstract : Some phytoplankton have the ability to combine phototrophy and heterotrophy within the same individual, which is called mixotrophy. In this thesis, I adress mixotrophy and competitive interactions of mixotrophs and obligate auto- or heterotrophs in relation to the availability of nutrients, light and prey. READ MORE

  2. 2. Grazer-induced responses in marine phytoplankton

    University dissertation from Carina Pålsson, Limnology, Ecology Building, S-223 62, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Johanna Bergkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phytoplankton; defence; dinoflagellate; diatoms; paralytic shellfish toxins; polyunsaturated aldehydes; chain formation;

    Abstract : Phytoplankton are the most important primary producers in the world’s oceans, yet little is known of how they avoid the constant threats from the pelagic grazers. From land it is well known that plants defend themselves by having thorns or producing compounds unpalatable to grazers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phytoplankton and Physical Disturbance Seasonal dynamics in temperate Lake Erken, Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yang Yang; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Phytoplankton dynamics; high-frequency measurements; thermal stratification; water column stability; equilibrium; disturbance;

    Abstract : Phytoplankton mirrors changes in the environment and plays an important role in biogeochemical processes. Phytoplankton dynamics is the outcome of both autogenic succession and external disturbances. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecological implications of the production of toxic substances by fish killing phytoplankton species grown under variable N:P-ratios

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Niclas Johansson; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mixotrophy; grazing; allelopathic interactions; allelopathy; algae; phytoplankton; nutrient limitation; toxicity; Toxic haptophytes; fishkilling phytoplankton; Hydrobiology; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : The influence of different nutrient conditions on the production of toxins was studied in certain fishkilling haptophytes (e.g. Prymnesium parvum and Chrysochromulina polylepis). READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of dissolved humic matter on phytoplankton

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Jessica von Einem; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phytoplankton; PAR; DOC; Water colour; production;

    Abstract : Water colour is currently increasing in thousands of lakes in the northern hemisphere due to an increased input of terrestrial dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and more specifically coloured disscolved humic matter (DHM). I studied how water colour affects the light climate in the epilimnion and, as a consequence, phytoplankton biomass, species composition and production in lakes in southern Sweden. READ MORE
