  1. 1. Magnetic orientation in migratory birds

    Detta är en avhandling från Rachel Muheim

    Författare :Rachel Muheim; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; cue-conflict; clock-shift; cue calibration; geomagnetic field; high Arctic latitudes; Emlen funnel; magnetic compass; magnetoreception; navigation; migration; bird; orientation;

    Sammanfattning : My thesis focuses on magnetic orientation in migratory birds, i.e. how they can perceive information from the Earth’s magnetic field and use it for orientation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Light-dependent magnetoreception in zebra finches : - from behaviour to receptor

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Författare :Atticus Pinzon Rodriguez; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-04]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; magnetoreception; radical-pair process; magnetic compass; orientation; cryptochrome; Taeniopygia guttata;

    Sammanfattning : It is well known that animals can use a wide variety of information sources to help them orient and navigate asthey move over short or long distances. Birds can rely on information from the sun, the skylight polarizationpattern, the stars, landmarks and the Earth’s magnetic field for orientation and navigation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Some Control Applications in Electric Power Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från IEA, LTH, Box 118, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Magnus Akke; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]

  4. 4. Nanospintronics with Molecular Magnets - Tunneling and Spin-Electric Coupling

    Detta är en avhandling från IEA, LTH, Box 118, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Javier Francisco Nossa Márquez; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Molecular magnets; spin exchange; spin-orbit interaction; magnetic anisotropy; spin frustration; spin chirality; spin-electric control; quantum transport; Coulomb blockade; density functional theory; quantum master equation.;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation investigates theoretically electric control of the magnetic properties of molecular magnets. Two classes of magnetic molecules are considered. The first class consists of molecules that are spin frustrated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Stopover behaviour in migratory songbirds: timing, orientation and departures

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Sissel Sjöberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flight duration; orientation; departure timing; stopover behaviour; stopover duration; flight behaviour; reverse migration; route choice; compass calibration; passerines; Bird migration;

    Sammanfattning : Songbird migrants use stopovers between flight bouts to rest and refuel for the upcoming flights. Behaviours affecting where, when and how long to stay at stopover sites will affect how successful the overall migration will be, which has significant consequences for the overall fitness and mortality of the birds.
