  1. 1. Analysing Raman spectra of crystalline cellulose degradation by fungi using artificial neural networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Sebastian Hutteri; [2019]
    Keywords : Raman spectroscopy; artificial neural networks; saprotrophic fungi; cellulose; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the use of artificial neural networks for classifying Raman spectra of partially degraded cellulose samples by fungal species. A multilayer perceptron configuration of 4 hidden layers and 128 hidden nodes was able to classify a set of 60 samples with an overall prediction accuracy of 0.55. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biodegradation of organic micropollutants dibutyl phthalate and bisphenol A by fungi

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Lena Carstens; [2018]
    Keywords : micropollutant; dibutyl phthalate; bisphenol A; fungi; biodegradation; biosorption; endocrine disrupting chemical;

    Abstract : Fungi represent a promising and relatively untapped resource in regard to the bioremediation of micropollutants. Degradation efficiencies of the ubiquitous endocrine disrupting chemicals dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and bisphenol A (BPA) by selected fungal strains with different ecophysiologies were determined via ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC).

  3. 3. Degradation of pesticides by the ligninolytic enzyme Laccase : optimisation of in vitro conditions, immobilisation and screening for natural mediators

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Naomi Farragher; [2013]
    Keywords : White rot fungi; Laccase; Bioprophylaxis; Diffuse sources; Co-formulation; Degradation; Mediators; Pesticides; Glyphosate; AMPA; Isoproturon; Enzyme encapsulation; Enzyme immobilisation; Natural mediators;

    Abstract : Pesticides are widely used in many industries but the majority reaches non-target organisms or locations through point or diffuse sources. Understanding conditions for their degradation is therefore important. The degradation of glyphosate, its metabolite AMPA and isoproturon using the ligninolytic enzyme laccase was studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Clear-cut and substrate characteristics important for the occurrence of the beetle Upis ceramboides

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Ronny Naalisvaara; [2013]
    Keywords : Upis ceramboides; dead wood; clear-cut; prescribed burning;

    Abstract : Disturbances, such as fire and wind, are important for saproxylic beetles (= beetles depending on decaying wood) to gain substrate in boreal forests. Clear-cutting is an example of a man-made disturbance. Measures such as prescribed burning have been made to resemble natural disturbances. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vedrötor i stadsträd : biologi, detektionsmetoder och förebyggande åtgärder

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Crop Science

    Author : Tove Hultberg; [2006]
    Keywords : rötor; stadsträd; svampar; beskärning;

    Abstract : Urban trees have very little in common with trees on natural sites, such as forests or pastures. Trees in urban environments are often planted in packed soil and in small volumes. This can lead to decreased availability of water and oxygen, as well as deteriorated ability for the soil to store nutritional elements. READ MORE
