  1. 1. Benthic use of phytoplankton blooms: uptake, burial and biodiversity effects in a species-poor system

    Författare :Agnes M. L. Karlson; Ragnar Elmgren; Carlo Heip; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biodiversity; ecosystem functioning; benthic-pelagic coupling; niche; resource partitioning; competition; eutrophication; cyanobacterial blooms; diatoms; invasive species; Baltic Sea; Marine ecology; Marin ekologi; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Animals living in marine sediments (the second largest habitat on earth) play a major role in global biogeochemical cycling. By feeding on organic matter from settled phytoplankton blooms they produce food for higher trophic levels and nutrients that can fuel primary production. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Interspecific Interactions between Native Brown Trout and Invasive Brook Trout: Insights into Behaviour and Morphology

    Författare :Magnus L. Wallerius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Invasive species; Fish; Competition; Foraging; Management;

    Sammanfattning : The introduction of non-native species represents a global threat to ecosystems and biodiversity. In Europe, the introduction of the invasive brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) has led to species displacement and local extinction of native brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Non-Invasive Monitoring of Architectural Heritage

    Författare :Jenny Hällström; Bebyggelsevård; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; remote sensing; lidar; laser-induced fluorescence; documentation; hyperspectral; non invasive; non destructive; sustainable maintenance; conservation planning; monitoring; Coliseum; architectural conservation; restoration; Övedskloster; deterioration; Lateran Baptistery; stone; brick; thematic mapping; in situ; imaging; biodeteriogens;

    Sammanfattning : The on-site documentation and examination of architectural heritage has presented challenges for traditional analysis methods in the form of, among other things, large complex structures, sites and environmental conditions. In recent years there has been growing interest in assessing progressing deterioration processes and material analysis, with an emphasis on sustainable conservation and maintenance planning. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The threat from non indigenous species - ecosystem vulnerability, global distribution and co-occurrence with other major threats

    Författare :Helena Berglund; Biodiversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; threats; distribution range; isolation; endemism; invasions; invaders; vulnerability; non indigenous species; rarity; threatened species;

    Sammanfattning : We live in a globalised world where people and goods travel large distances. Various species are brought along on these journeys, intentionally or as hitchhikers. Some of these species establish populations in regions to which they could not have spread without human assistance, and where they are considered to be non indigenous species (NIS). LÄS MER

  5. 5. D-arabinitol in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis

    Författare :Gudrun Sigmundsdottir; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; D-arabinitol; D-arabitol; Candida; invasive candidiasis; production rate; diagnosis; neonate; neutropenic; HIV;

    Sammanfattning : Invasive candidiasis (IC) is a serious condition and timely diagnosis with early initiation of antifungal therapy is imerative for improving outcomes. Arabinitol is a sugar alcohol with two stereoisomers, D-arabinitol (DA) and L-arabintiol (LA). LÄS MER
