  1. 1. Benthic-pelagic coupling in a changing world : Structural and functional responses of microbenthic communities to organic matter settling

    Författare :Séréna Albert; Francisco J. A. Nascimento; Monika Winder; Stefano Bonaglia; Tom Moens; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soft sediments; benthic-pelagic coupling; organic matter export; meiofauna; nitrogen cycle; metabarcoding; Baltic Sea; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Marine soft sediments form the second largest habitat on the planet. Organisms residing in this environment represent a vast reservoir of biodiversity, and play key roles in ecosystem processes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Responses of benthic-pelagic coupling to environmental change

    Författare :Per Hedberg; Monika Winder; Martin Kainz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Benthic-pelagic coupling; Stable isotopes; Fatty acids; Baltic Sea; Plankton; Food webs; Benthos; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Changing abiotic factors, like temperature and light are important drivers of seasonality, affecting aquatic ecosystems and organisms annually in a predictable pattern, structuring species composition, growth, reproduction and trophic interactions. As a consequence of human induced climate change, coastal ecosystems are seeing a disruption in the predictability of annual cycles. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ecology of zooplankton communities: climate, dormancy, and benthic-pelagic coupling

    Författare :Mikael Gyllström; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; limnology; Hydrobiology; marine biology; aquatic ecology; phytoplankton; temporal stability; recruitment; seasonal succession; environmental cues; diapause; shallow lakes; predation; enrichment; climate; temperature;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes how influences, such as top down and bottom up forces, shape zooplankton communities in shallow lakes. I have also extended the traditional food-web theory by investigating the effects of climate on total biomass, taxonomic composition, and temporal properties of zooplankton communities. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Biomass patterns in boreal-subarctic lake food webs along gradients of light and nutrients

    Författare :Gustaf Thomsson; Sebastian Diehl; Dag Olav Hessen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; boreal-subartic lake; cDOM; epilithon; benthic-pelagic coupling; carnivores;

    Sammanfattning : There is large natural variation in light and nutrient conditions across lakes. In the boreal-subarctic region most lakes are small, shallow and nutrient poor. In such lakes there is often sufficient light to support primary production at the lake bottom. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Benthic use of phytoplankton blooms: uptake, burial and biodiversity effects in a species-poor system

    Författare :Agnes M. L. Karlson; Ragnar Elmgren; Carlo Heip; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biodiversity; ecosystem functioning; benthic-pelagic coupling; niche; resource partitioning; competition; eutrophication; cyanobacterial blooms; diatoms; invasive species; Baltic Sea; Marine ecology; Marin ekologi; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Animals living in marine sediments (the second largest habitat on earth) play a major role in global biogeochemical cycling. By feeding on organic matter from settled phytoplankton blooms they produce food for higher trophic levels and nutrients that can fuel primary production. LÄS MER
