  2. 2. CONTESTING URBAN PUBLIC SPACE AS COMMONS - A study on the common usage of public parks in Barcelona-Sants

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för globala studier

    Author : Julia Neidig; [2020-02-18]
    Keywords : Urban Commons; public space; spaces of in-betweenness; observation; socio-spatial analysis;

    Abstract : Urbanisation is one of the major trends in globalisation. An influx of heterogenous urban dwellers to a densely built urban environment contains potential for conflicts. With increasing heterogeneity, public space in cities becomes the site of multicultural confrontation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Influence of reed (Phragmites australis) belts in the Baltic Sea archipelago on pike (Esox lucius) and other coastal fish species

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Aquatic Resources

    Author : Niklas Niemi; [2020]
    Keywords : Reed; Phragmites; Pike; Baltic Sea; spatial distribution; habitat utilization; reed expansion; reed management;

    Abstract : Eutrophication, near shore building and human disturbances by dredging and shore alteration have led to increased expansion of the common reed (Phragmites australis) in the archipelago of the Baltic Sea. Reed has an important ecological function such as nursery habitat for many fish species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatial Heterogeneity of Weather impacts on Cycling Flows within Gothenburg, Sweden - A Geographic Framework for Local Pattern Analysis

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Filip Olsson; [2019-10-25]
    Keywords : spatial heterogeneity; cycling; weather; local climate zones; explorative GIS;

    Abstract : Background: In the past decade, the phenomenon of spatial heterogeneity has started to gaintraction in studies of cycling and weather. Cycling is usually the mode of transportation that ismost affected by inclement weather and the scientific consensus about how weather impactscycling behaviour on a general scale is for the most part well-established.

  5. 5. Spatial and temporal variability in grassland structure associated with different densities of the white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) in a South African savanna

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Emilia Malmström; [2019]
    Keywords : white rhinoceros; african savanna; keystone species; herbivory; cascading effects; poaching;

    Abstract : The direct and indirect relationships between species in different trophic levels are referred to as trophic dynamics and are important in maintaining the function of ecosystems. Megaherbivores may have effects both directly and indirectly on other species since their impact may be disproportionately large relative to their population size. READ MORE
