  1. 1. Searching for food in complex environments : Integrating processes at multiple spatial scales

    Författare :Thomas Alexander Verschut; Peter Hambäck; Peter Anderson; Ring Cardé; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Associational effects; Natal experiences; Olfaction; Oviposition; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Resources are often unevenly distributed through the environment, resulting in a challenging task for insects to locate food, mates and oviposition sites. Consequently, there is an ongoing need to unravel how insects rely on behavioural and sensory traits while searching for resources in heterogeneous environments. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of facilitation and competition on oak seedlings : Using shrubs as nurse-plants to facilitate growth and reduce browsing from large herbivores

    Författare :Anna M. Jensen; Magnus Löf; Anna M Jensen; Sweden SLU; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Plant–plant interactions have been indicated as a potential means to facilitate oak seedling establishment and reduce herbivory when restoring oak forests. The aim of this thesis was to investigate mechanisms and outcomes of competitive and indirectly facilitative interactions between oak (Quercus robur and Q. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Food choice in fallow deer – experimental studies of selectivity

    Författare :Ulrika Alm Bergvall; Olof Leimar; Frederick D. Provenza; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; behavioural syndrome; neighbour contrast defence; neighbour contrast susceptibility; simultaneous negative contrast; plant secondary compounds; tannins; Ethology and behavioural ecology; Etologi och beteendeekologi; etologi; Ethology;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, I experimentally investigate feeding selectivity in fallow deer (Dama dama), with respect to plant secondary compounds, especially tannins, which can decrease the quality of foods. I found that fallow deer avoided foods with higher amounts of tannic acid and Quebracho tannin, even though the deer ate some high-tannin food. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Att förklara politiskt förtroende: Betydelsen av socialt kapital och rättvisa procedurer
