  1. 1. Evolutionary consequences of ecological interactions

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Etsuko Nonaka; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; adaptive dynamics; eco-evolutionary dynamics; ecological speciation; ecosystem; individual based; population dynamics; phenotypic plasticity; predator-prey; sexual selection;

    Sammanfattning : Eco-evolutionary dynamics integrates the reciprocal interactions betweenecology and evolution. These two branches of biology traditionally assumethe other as static for simplicity. However, increasing evidence shows thatthis simplification may not always hold because ecology and evolution canoperate in similar timescales. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Catching values of small-scale fisheries A look at markets, trade relations and fisher behaviour

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Författare :Elizabeth Drury O'Neill; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; small-scale fisheries; value chains; gender; seafood trade; global markets; patron-client; human wellbeing; benefits; markets; local social dynamics; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis explores small-scale fisheries trade, markets and the accompanying relationships. It does so to understand how they contribute to human wellbeing and ecosystem health through fisher's behaviour in the marine environment. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Sustainable Business Innovation of Photovoltaic Water Pumping Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Chi Zhang; KTH.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; PV water pumping; Economic assessment; Ecological benefits; Business model innovation; Case study; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The development of renewable energy technology provides an effective approach to replace fossil fuels for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission. Technological innovation and transfer are the main driving forces in promoting renewable energy usage, because of the better efficiency and economic payback under an emission reduction target.

  4. 4. Benefits from ecosystem services in Sahelian village landscapes

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Författare :Hanna Sinare; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agroforestry; Burkina Faso; ecosystem services assessment; landscape change; livelihoods; smallholder agriculture; social-ecological system; West Africa; Natural Resources Management; naturresurshushållning;

    Sammanfattning : Rural people in the Sahel derive multiple benefits from local ecosystem services on a daily basis. At the same time, a large proportion of the population lives in multidimensional poverty. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Understanding ecosystem service bundles and their social-ecological patterns in a Swedish landscape

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Författare :Megan Meacham; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecosystem service; bundles; drivers; landscape; patterns; Sweden; Norrström; Mälaren; Mälardalen; social-ecological; human-nature;

    Sammanfattning : Managing landscapes in a way that ensures sustainable development and the continued production of benefits to a diverse set of people requires an understanding how people use, modify, and depend on their local environment. This thesis uses the concept of ecosystem service bundles to articulate the social-ecological dynamics that define landscapes. LÄS MER
