    Sammanfattning : Down syndrome (DS) is associated with psychomotor retardation, short stature and endocrine dysfunction. Statural growth is a well-known indicator of health. The growth in DS differs markedly from that of other children and there is a 20 cm reduction of final height as compared to target height. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The prevalence of overweight and obesity is rising each year not only on a national but also on a global level. The future scenario is troublesome. The media are among the most important social institutions in influencing people’s knowledge, perceptions and actions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ground beetle dynamics in intensively managed agricultural landscapes

    Författare :Erkki Palmu; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carabidae; species richness; species diversity; functional traits; body size; emergence; dispersal; stable isotopes; deuterium; oxygen; crop diversification; landscape heterogeneity; agricultural management;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis I have focused on studying dynamics of ground beetle assemblages in intensively managed agricultural landscapes. By definition, the land cover of these landscapes is dominated by annually tilled farmland, comprising a range of different crop types, in the context of the southern Swedish province of Scania mostly winter wheat, spring barley, winter rapeseed, and sugar beets.

    Sammanfattning : The incidence of overweight and obesity has reached alarming proportions. Today, overweight, obesity and the metabolic diseases cause more death than starvation. To counteract an increasing body weight gain, regulation of appetite and a controlled food intake is of greatest importance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Obesity Genetics : Functional Aspects of Four Genetic Loci Associated with Obesity and Body Mass

    Författare :Mathias Rask-Andersen; Helgi Schiöth; Ingrid Dahlman; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Obesity is a complex disorder which has reached epidemic proportions in many parts of the world. Twin studies have demonstrated a high heritability for obesity. The subsequent appli-cation of genome wide association studies (GWAS) in the last decade have identified at least 32 genetic loci associated with body mass and obesity. LÄS MER
