  1. 1. Application of Molecular Markers in Sugar Beet Breeding

    Författare :Annika Hjerdin Panagopoulos; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry; breeding; marker application; molecular markers; sugar beet;

    Sammanfattning : Around 1750 a German chemist discovered it to be possible to extract sugar crystals from beet juice. Since then, breeding and improved agricultural practices have increased the concentration of sucrose per root from around 4% to around 18%. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Selection, Maternal Effects and Inbreeding in Reindeer Husbandry

    Författare :Lars Rönnegård; Högskolan Dalarna; []
    Nyckelord :breeding programme; communal grazing; randombred populations; Rangifer tarandus tarandus; semidomestic reindeer; gene flow; reindeer; animal breeding; gene flow; random mating; breeding methods; genetic inheritance; population structure; extensive husbandry; sweden;

    Sammanfattning : In extensive grazing systems where several owners’ flocks are allowed to mix, selection strategies will also interact, due to gene flow between flocks. The aim of the thesis was to analyse breeding schemes in terms of genetic gain and rate of inbreeding (?F), given the complexity of ownership and interaction of selection strategies within a mixing reindeer population.

  3. 3. Cooperative Breeding in the Southern Anteater-Chat : Sexual Disparity, Survival and Dispersal

    Författare :Jonathan Barnaby; Jan Ekman; Anssi Laurila; Rita Covas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Southern anteater-chat; Myrmecocichla formicivora; cooperative breeding; social evolution; behavioural ecology; delayed dispersal; family living; Africa; Biologi med inriktning mot populationsbiologi; Biology with specialization in Population Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Group-living sets the scene for complex social behaviours such as cooperative breeding, and exploring the factors that shape group-living is crucial in understanding these behaviours. This thesis explores the ecology of a population of the facultative cooperative breeding southern anteater-chat (Myrmecocichla formicivora), a group-living bird species endemic to southern Africa.

  4. 4. Multiplex markers in a plant breeding perspective

    Författare :Mats Hansen; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; plant breeding; SNP; RAPD; molecular markers; AFLP; Växtbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Plant breeding is largely depending on the repeated selection for desirable traits. This process is both time and labour consuming, making the development of commercial plant varieties a slow and costly activity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Behavioural aspects of conservation breeding : Red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) as a case study

    Författare :Jennie Håkansson; Per Jensen; Elsbeth McPhee; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Behaviour; Conservation; Red junglefowl; Gallus gallus; Captivity; Ethology and behavioural ecology; Etologi och beteendeekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Ett stort antal utrotningshotade djurarter ingår idag i bevarandeprogram världen över. Små populationer hålls då i skyddade miljöer, exempelvis i djurparker, och i många fall är målet att återintroducera djur till naturen. LÄS MER
