    Abstract : When selecting applicants for professions with job descriptions involving complex human interaction, identifying suitable candidates is essential. This strongly applies in police selection, because police officers must act appropriately at all times, deal with difficult and sometimes dangerous work situations, and come into contact with people who are in highly emotional states, such as anxiety, fear, excitement, and shock.

    Abstract : In the adaptation to the oxidative environment on earth, metals played a crucial role for the evolution of life. The presence of metals also allowed access to advanced functions due to their unique coordination sphere and reactivity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sexual conflict and selection on pistil and pollen traits

    Author : Josefin Madjidian; Biologiska institutionen; []

Moreover, the potential for sexual conflicts to occur in plants has only been assessed empirically to a very limited degree. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evolutionary consequences of dominance at the Brassicaceae self-incompatibility locus

    Abstract : Self-incompatibility (SI) is a genetic mechanism that allows plants to enforce outcrossing by rejecting self-pollen and pollen from close relatives. In the Brassicaceae, SI is sporophytic and controlled by the self-incompatibility locus (S-locus). READ MORE
