  1. 1. Functional Traits in Sphagnum

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Fia Bengtsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; peat mosses; functional traits; NPP; decay resistance; N2 fixation; desiccation resistance; climate; Biology with specialization in Ecological Botany; Biologi med inriktning mot ekologisk botanik;

    Sammanfattning : Peat mosses (Sphagnum) are ecosystem engineers that largely govern carbon sequestration in northern hemisphere peatlands. I investigated functional traits in Sphagnum species and addressed the questions: (I) Are growth, photosynthesis and decomposition and the trade-offs between these traits related to habitat or phylogeny?, (II) Which are the determinants of decomposition and are there trade-offs between metabolites that affect decomposition?, (III) How do macro-climate and local environment determine growth in Sphagnum across the Holarctic?, (IV) How does N2 fixation vary among different species and habitats?, (V) How do species from different microtopographic niches avoid or tolerate desiccation, and are leaf and structural traits adaptations to growth high above the water table?Photosynthetic rate and decomposition in laboratory conditions (innate growth and decay resistance) were related to growth and decomposition in their natural habitats.

  2. 2. Modeling Specialization and Division of Labor in Cultural Evolution

    Detta är en avhandling från Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Författare :Micael Ehn; Mälardalens högskola.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Specialization; Division of Labor; Cultural Evolution; Mathematics Applied Mathematics; matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Sammanfattning : Division of labor and division of knowledge are so important and common in society today that it is difficult to imagine a functional society where everyone knows the same things and performs the same tasks. In such a society everyone grows, or gathers, and prepares their own food, makes their own tools, builds their own house, and so on. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Ceramics are distinguished from metals and polymers by their inorganic nature and lack of metallic properties. They can be highly crystalline to amorphous, and their physical and chemical properties can vary widely. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Hidden Diversity Revealed Genomic, Transcriptomic and Functional Studies of Diplomonads

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; Spironucleus barkhanus; intestinal parasite; hydrogenosome; mitosome; lateral gene transfer; horizontal gene transfer; diplomonad; metamonad; sexual recombination; transfection; protein complex purification; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Sammanfattning : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Functional Cyclic Carbonate Monomers and Polycarbonates Synthesis and Biomaterials Applications

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Mindemark; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA condensation; gene delivery; ionomers; polyplexes; self-assembly; amphiphiles; biodegradable; biological applications of polymers; transfection; cyclic carbonate monomers; polycarbonates; semicrystalline polymers; click chemistry; triazoles; cycloaddition; Kemi med inriktning mot polymerkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Polymer Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The present work describes a selection of strategies for the synthesis of functional aliphatic polycarbonates. Using an end-group functionalization strategy, a series of DNA-binding cationic poly(trimethylene carbonate)s was synthesized for application as vectors for non-viral gene delivery. LÄS MER
