  1. 1. Rainfall variability, soils and land use changes in the Ethiopian highlands

    Author : Staffan Rosell; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; rainfall change; soil productivity; tef; land-use changes; South Wollo; water harvesting;

    Abstract : Most farmers in the Ethiopian highlands are dependent on rain-fed agriculture. The indigenous cereal tef is the most important crop for the farmers in the highlands. The central highland is an environmentally fragile area and a marginal area of Ethiopia with a recurring problem for the farmers to sustain an adequate agricultural production. READ MORE

  2. 2. Liver tumour promoting effects by polychlorinated biphenyls

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Marie Haag Grönlund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tumour promotion; altered hepatic foci; rat liver; PCB; potency; TEF; interactions; antagonism; biologically based cancer growth models; TCDD;

    Abstract : PCBs cause a number of toxic effects and are present in a variety of biological samples including fish, meat and diary products. Cancer is a serious toxic effect by PCBs that has been observed in animal experiments but the knowledge about PCB induced carcinogenicity is still scarce. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cumulative assessment of persistent organic pollutant toxicity in vivo

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Environmental Medicine

    Author : Emma Westerholm; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Humans are continuously exposed to a multitude of compounds present in the environment and in food. A major challenge in risk assessment is to determine the degree of exposure to multiple chemicals and the hazards associated with such combined exposure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanistical studies on gap junctions and their role in tumour promotion : Structure-activity relationships of polychlorinated biphelyls

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false
