  1. 1. HOW IS THE CONCEPT OF ‘WOMEN AND CHILDREN’REPRESENTED BY TWO HUMANITARIANORGANISATIONS? : HOW IS THE CONCEPT OF ‘WOMEN AND CHILDREN’REPRESENTED BY TWO HUMANITARIANORGANISATIONS?

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Umeå centrum för genusstudier (UCGS)

    Author : Anna Blideman; [2019]
    Keywords : gender; International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC ; innocence; Médecins Sans Frontières MSF ; vulnerability; womandchildren; women and children;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to analyse how the concept of ‘women and children’ is represented bytwo humanitarian organisations; International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) andMédecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The analyses concludes that there is (still) an assumptionthat women have an inherent vulnerability and women are often described together with‘children’ as if they are one vulnerable group instead of two.

  2. 2. Field study of the drought’s impact on feeding strategy and biological parameters in early lactation dairy cattle

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Mikaela Würtz; [2019]
    Keywords : dairy cattle; drought; energy balance; feeding; metabolism;

    Abstract : The summer of 2018 was unusually warm and dry. For animal production, this resulted in poor pastures, reduced harvests of crops, such as roughage and grains, and increased risk for heat stress in the animals. The drought led to problems as in shortage of animal feed, which made the feeding of dairy cattle difficult. READ MORE

  3. 3. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. READ MORE

  4. 4. Region Proposal Based Object Detectors Integrated With an Extended Kalman Filter for a Robust Detect-Tracking Algorithm

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Gabriel Khajo; [2019]
    Keywords : Object Detection; Extended Kalman Filter; Tracking;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present a detect-tracking algorithm (see figure 3.1) that combines the detection robustness of static region proposal based object detectors, like the faster region convolutional neural network (R-CNN) and the region-based fully convolutional networks (R-FCN) model, with the tracking prediction strength of extended Kalman filters, by using, what we have called, a translating and non-rigid user input region of interest (RoI-) mapping.

  5. 5. Saproxylic beetles in Populus tremula fauna depots - how do you construct the best depot?

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Simon Selberg; [2019]
    Keywords : aspen; populus; tremula; saproxylic; beetle; fauna; depot; species; richness; abundance; diversity; cwd; course; woody; debris; forest; asp; populus; tremula; vedlevande; skalbagge; fauna; depå; art; mångfald; diversitet; död; ved; cwd; skog;

    Abstract : The biodiversity of saproxylic organisms and in the case of this study, saproxylic beetles, is dependent on the amount and quality of course woody debris (CWD) in the environment. Over the past decades the quantity of CWD in Swedish forests has increased, yet the quality has decreased, forests are managed and exploited, and old-growth forests are rarer. READ MORE
