  1. 1. "Share weather" Design and evaluation of a new concept for sharing weather information

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Katarina Elevant; Stefan Hrastinski; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Already centuries ago, humans had observed the weather in their everyday lives, seeking ways to understand, comprehend, and predict it. Until the present day, weather has had tremendous impacts on our lives and with climate change human civilizations as well. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Problem of Partial Migration - the Case of the Blue Tit

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Nilsson; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Naturvetenskap; Natural science; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Ekologi; Ecology; weather; personality; partial migration; metabolic rate; evolution of migration; dominance; Cyanistes caeruleus; climate change; blue tit; behavioural strategies; bird migration;

    Abstract : In the evolution of bird migration, partial migration is assumed to be an important intermediate step between migration and residency. Partial migration is characterised by the existence of both migratory and resident individuals in a given population. READ MORE
