Sammanfattning : Ecologically important macroalgae with large thalli and complex structures are threatened worldwide due to anthropogenic activities such as pollution. In the northern Baltic Sea the salinity is very low; the only large algae producing complex structural habitats found there are the fucoid species Fucus radicans and F. vesiculosus. LÄS MER
2. Molecular evidence for metazooplankton feeding on filamentous cyanobacteria and picocyanobacteria in the Baltic Sea
Sammanfattning : Interactions between zooplankton and cyanobacteria are complex and system-specific. They play an important role in mediating responses of phytoplankton to changes in nutrient regime and top-down manipulations. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : During summer, the Baltic Sea is subjected to the world’s largest cyanobacterial blooms. These blooms are linked to eutrophication and raise many questions concerning their effects on the ecosystem. To understand their impacts on the food web dynamics, it is essential to assess growth responses of grazers to these cyanobacteria. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Fucus vesiculosus and Fucus serratus are the only large, structuring perennial brown macroalgae in the low salinity waters of the Swedish coast of the Baltic Proper. Since the 1970s there are reports of declining Fucus vesiculosus stands from several locations around the Baltic Proper, but also indications of recoveries e.g. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with physical factors and biological interactions affecting the distribution of two fucoid species, Fucus vesiculosus and F. serratus, in the Baltic Sea. Studies have been carried out in two quite different environments: an archipelago, and an open rocky coast. LÄS MER
