Sammanfattning : Cyanobacteria belonging to the genus Nostoc have the capacity to form symbiotic associations with a wide range of organisms. Diversity, specificity and cellular modifications of the symbiosis between Nostoc and fungi in the formation of lichens were investigated in this thesis. LÄS MER
2. Coral reefs in the Anthropocene : The effects of stress on coral metabolism and symbiont composition
Sammanfattning : Coral reefs constitute some of the most prolific and diverse ecosystems on our planet, but also among the most threatened. This thesis investigates the effects of environmental stressors on corals’ metabolism and symbiont diversity. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Nature conservation requires an in-depth understanding of the ecological processes that influence species persistence in the different phases of a species life. In lichens, these phases comprise dispersal, establishment, and growth. LÄS MER
4. Sex and symbionts : New discoveries in local and regional patterns of coral ecology and reproduction
Sammanfattning : Coral reefs belong to the most diverse and the most threatened ecosystems on earth. Anthropogenic stressors and climate change have led to mortalities at levels unprecedented in modern times. The aims of this thesis are to investigate aspects of the corals’ ability to reproduce, disperse, adapt and survive. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Di-nitrogen (N2) fixers, also called diazotrophs, are able to reduce atmospheric N2 into bioavailable nitrogen, giving them an advantage in open ocean regions with low dissolved inorganic nitrogen concentrations. The focus of this thesis are three lineages of symbiotic heterocystous filamentous types (het-1, het-2 and het-3), that associate with several genera of microalgae called diatoms (collectively referred to as Diatom Diazotroph Associations, DDAs).
