  1. 1. Magnetic map sense in animals: effects of geographic and magnetic displacements

    Författare :Jannika Boström; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oenanthe oenanthe; skylight polarization; geomagnetic map; geomagnetic field; endogenous migration programme; migratory fuelling; orientation; animal navigation;

    Sammanfattning : Migration research is a large and diverse field and in my thesis I have focused on the impact of geomagnetic cues on animal orientation, navigation and migratory fuelling. Several animal species from widely different taxa possess the ability to sense and make use of geomagnetic information during migratory or homing events. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Celestial Orientation in Dim Light

    Författare :Marie Dacke; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polarisation pattern; moon; polrised light detection; twilight; dim light; dung beetle; Zoologi; spider; vision; orientation; Zoology;

    Sammanfattning : The polarization pattern of skylight offers many animals a reference for visual compass orientation. In those cases when this optical compass is identified, the receptors involved are often confined to a small part of an eye built predominantly for other visual tasks. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies in Physiological Optics and Microwave Hyperthermia

    Författare :Claes M. E. Beckman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :optics; cancer treatment; light scattering;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the optics of the eye, the sky and microwave induced hyperthermia treatment of cancer. Light scattering in normal eyes is reviewed and its influence on vision is discussed in some detail. LÄS MER
