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.

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
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
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
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.
