  1. 1. Viruses on the wing: evolution and dynamics of influenza A virus in the Mallard reservoir

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Michelle Wille; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Co-infections; Ecology; Epidemiology; Evolution; Host-Parasite Interactions; Immunity; Influenza A Virus; Mallard; Phylogeny; Virology; Waterfowl; Wild Birds; Wildlife Disease; Zoonotisk ekologi; Zoonotic Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis explores the evolution of avian influenza A viruses (IAV), as well as host-pathogen interactions between these viruses and their main reservoir host, the Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos). IAV is a genetically diverse, multi-host virus and wild birds, particularly dabbling ducks, are the natural reservoir. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Epidemiology and population structure of Campylobacter jejuni and related organisms in wild birds

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Författare :Jonas Waldenström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; epidemiology; Campylobacter lari; population structure; Helicobacter canadensis; Ecology; Parasitology human and animal ; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; Parasitologi människa och djur ; migration; Ekologi; wild birds; Sweden; Campylobacter jejuni;

    Sammanfattning : Campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common causes to bacterial gastroenteritis in the industrialised world. Also other species of the Campylobacter genus give rise to human infections. C. jejuni occurs in many different animal hosts and can be isolated from water sources. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Puumala virus dynamics in bank voles along habitat and community gradients

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Författare :Hussein Khalil; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2017]

    Sammanfattning : The majority of recent infectious disease outbreaks are zoonotic, i.e. caused by pathogens shared between humans and other vertebrates, and many of those originate in wildlife. The life cycle of zoonotic diseases is complex, and involves at least one non-human host. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The role of rodents in the transmission of Echinococcus multilocularis and other tapeworms in a low endemic area

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Författare :Andrea Miller; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2016]

    Sammanfattning : Echinococcus multilocularis is zoonotic tapeworm in the Taeniidae family with a two part lifecycle involving a canid definitive host and a rodent intermediate host. The work of this thesis followed the first identification E. multilocularis in Sweden in 2011 in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes). LÄS MER

  5. 5. European Black Grouse MHC Genetic Diversity and Population Structure

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Tanja Strand; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Major Histocompatibility Complex; BLB; balancing selection; concerted evolution; bottleneck; fragmentation; 3 UTR; Biologi med inriktning mot populationsbiologi; Biology with specialization in Population Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Black grouse Tetrao tetrix is a bird species composed of large, continuous as well as severely reduced and fragmented populations, making it an optimal species to investigate how genetic diversity is affected by habitat fragmentation. I have focused on genetic diversity in the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) to measure the ability of the black grouse to respond to environmental changes. LÄS MER
