  1. 1. Designing for Extremes

    Författare :Olga Bannova; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architect; Human Factors; Engineering; Engineer; Multidisciplinary and Trans-disciplinary Design and Planning.; Extreme environments; Architecture; Design Planning;

    Sammanfattning : The starting point of this research is based on personal experience in research and design for extreme environments, including orbital and lunar planetary facilities, disaster shelters, polar stations and offshore surface and submersible habitats. This work reflects on related to research problem technical papers, discussions with professionals about their work experience with projects in extreme conditions, and students' workshops debating strategies to form sustainable behavior and design practices.

  2. 2. Evolution of symbiotic lineages and the origin of new traits

    Författare :Daniel Tamarit; Siv G. E. Andersson; Lisa Klasson; Amparo Latorre; Julian Parkhill; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; symbiosis; host-association; Lactobacillus; Bifidobacterium; Rhizobiales; Bartonella; honeybees; ants; codon usage bias; genome architecture; genome organization; gene transfer agent; evolutionary genomics; comparative genomics; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the genomic study of symbionts of two different groups of hymenopterans: bees and ants. Both groups of insects have major ecological impact, and investigating their microbiomes increases our understanding of their health, diversity and evolution. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Evolutionary genetics and consequences of inbreeding in sand lizards (Lacerta agilis)

    Författare :Badreddine Bererhi; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inbreeding; sand lizards; evolutionary genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Inbreeding is a well-known phenomenon in evolutionary and conservation biology. In the 19th century, Charles Darwin demonstrated the detrimental effects of inbreeding in plants, followed by over a century of extensive research including various animal and plant taxa. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Drivers of evolutionary change in Podospora anserina

    Författare :Sandra Lorena Ament-Velásquez; Hanna Johannesson; Bengt Olle Bengtsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Podospora; Meiotic drive; Spore killing; vegetative incompatibility; heterokaryon incompatibility; allorecognition; speciation; Transposable elements; selfish genetic elements; fungi; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Genomic diversity is shaped by a myriad of forces acting in different directions. Some genes work in concert with the interests of the organism, often shaped by natural selection, while others follow their own interests. The latter genes are considered “selfish”, behaving either neutrally to the host, or causing it harm. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Evolutionary consequences of sex-specific selection

    Författare :Josefine Stångberg; Elisabeth Bolund; Elina Immonen; Jennifer Perry; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Caenorhabditis remanei; Callosobruchus maculatus; sex-specific selection; sexual selection; experimental evolution; intralocus sexual conflict; life history evolution; sexual dimorphism; trade-offs; Quantitative genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Sex-specific selection is widespread, evident by the evolution of sexual dimorphism in many traits in sexually reproducing taxa. The reason why the sexes may experience selection that differs in direction or magnitude is often linked to the reproductive strategies associated with the sex-specific reproductive physiology.
