  1. 1. Benthic diatoms in the Gulf of Bothnia : Community analysis and diversity

    Författare :Svenja Busse; Michael Sullivan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Baltic Sea; Biodiversity; Biomass; Community ecology; Diatoms; Multivariate analysis; Navicula; Phytobenthos; Salinity gradient; Scale; Size; Water movement; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; Ecological Botany; Ekologisk botanik;

    Sammanfattning : Benthic diatoms are valuable tools for biological monitoring and paleo-ecological reconstruction of past environmental conditions. This thesis aims at describing size-related properties of benthic diatoms and suggests that data assessment for community analysis can be improved by considering the importance of scale. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Processes and factors governing benthic community dynamics—environmental change in the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Christian Sommer; Sara Sjöling; Patrik Dinnétz; Inger Porsch Hällström; Alexander Eiler; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Benthic communities; Baltic Sea; biodiversity; community composition; environmental change; environmental genomics; microbial ecology; Major Baltic Inflow; meta-population; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Sammanfattning : As drivers of biogeochemical cycles and nutrient recycling, such as carbon turnover, the microbial community is essential in sustaining functioning ecosystems. Together with the metazoan community, the microbial community constitute the majority of all life in the benthos. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Dispersal in free-living, marine, benthic nematodes : passive or active processes?

    Författare :Jörgen Ullberg; Emil Ólafsson; John Lambshead; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nematod; dispersial; water column; choice; algal mats; disturbance; meiofauna; community; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Meiofauna, and especially marine nematodes are common in sediments around the world. Despite very wide ranging distributions in many nematode species, little is presently known about their dispersal mechanisms shaping these patterns. Rafting, and perhaps ballast water transport has been suggested as viable means for nematode long-range transport. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Evaluating effects of low concentrations of oil in marine benthic communities

    Författare :Fredrik Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PAHs; community response; microbial community; oil; meiofauna;

    Sammanfattning : Large anthropogenic discharges of oil annually enter the marine environment, in the magnitude from large scale discharges to minor leakage, caused by ship collision accidents or seepage from urban areas. Possible detrimental environmental effects from these discharges differ, from acute lethal to chronic sub-lethal. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Perturbation of functions in shallow benthic ecosystems : exemplified by the Fucus vesiculosus community in the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Cecilia Lindblad; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;
