  1. 1. On the use of genomics to asses environmental risks of pharmaceuticals

    Författare :Lina-Maria Gunnarsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; comparative pharmacology; ecotoxicology; fish; microarray; genomics; wastewater treatment;

    Sammanfattning : Many drugs are found in the aquatic environment and are therefore a cause for concern. Low concentrations of active ingredients from human pharmaceuticals reach the environment via sewage treatment plants, mainly as a result of excretion. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sub-lethal Effects of Anthropogenic Contaminants on Aquatic Invertebrates

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Warren Kunce; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ecotoxicology; sub-lethal; behavior; biomarkers; thermal tolerance; pesticides; pyrethroids; neonicotinoids; pharmaceuticals; antihistamines; microplastics; mixtures; freshwater; invertebrates; chironomids; damselflies; snails; Biology with specialization in Animal Conservation; Biologi med inriktning mot zoologisk bevarandebiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Anthropogenic contaminants are considered to play a substantial role in the decline of freshwater invertebrate diversity. Sub-lethal effects of many of these contaminants on behaviour and life-history traits of aquatic invertebrates may contribute to their decline. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Getting to know Trioza apicalis (Homoptera: Psylloidea) – a Specialist Host-Alternating Insect with a Tiny Olfactory System

    Detta är en avhandling från Chemical Ecology and Ecotoxicology, Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Lina Kristoffersen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology of invertebrates; Djurs anatomi och morfologi; Entomologi; plant parasitology; Entomology; Ekologi; Ecology; glomeruli; antennal lobe; olfactory receptor neurons electrophysiology; antennae; behaviour; olfaction; Sternorrhyncha; psyllid; Ryggradslösa djurs fysiologi; animal morphology; Animal anatomy; växtparasitologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis comprises ecological, morphological and physiological studies of the carrot psyllid Trioza apicalis (Homoptera: Psylloidea) with particular focus on olfaction. Data from inventories of winter habitats suggest that T. apicalis prefer Picea abies over Pinus sylvestris and Juniperus communis as winter hosts. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Circadian Rhythms in Moth Sex Pheromone Communication

    Detta är en avhandling från Chemical Ecology and Ecotoxicology, Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Germund von Wowern; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology of invertebrates; växtparasitologi; Entomologi; plant parasitology; Entomology; Ecology; Ekologi; locomotor activity; social synchronisation; PDH; corazonin; PBAN; pheromone response; sex phermone; Lepidoptera; Ryggradslösa djurs fysiologi; calling behaviour; circadian rhythm;

    Sammanfattning : Sex pheromone communication and related physiological processes are regulated by circadian clock mechanisms in many moth species. This thesis includes studies of circadian rhythms in sexually relevant behaviours and communication in the Egyptian cotton leafworm Spodoptera littoralis, the turnip moth Agrotis segetum, the Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella and the Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella.

  5. 5. Innate Immune Proteins in a Crustacean Pacifastacus leniusculus

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Chenglin Wu; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 2-DE; hematopoiesis; marker protein; melaniztion inhibiting protein; proPO-system; pattern recognition protein; PGN; ficolin-like protein; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; Biology with specialization in Comparative Physiology; Biologi med inriktning mot jämförande fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hemocytes (blood cells) are important in the immune defense against pathogens in invertebrates. In crusteacean, the hemocytes and plasma components mount a strong innate immune response against different pathogens including bacteria and virus. LÄS MER
