  1. 1. On the roles of schooling, colour and body size for thermoregulatory capacity in aquatic ectotherms

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för biologi och miljö (BOM)

    Author : Alexandra Karatza; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : For ectothermic organisms, both terrestrial and aquatic, the environmental temperature is imperative for their metabolic processes and finally for their growth and fitness. Previous research have shown that aquatic ectothermic organisms through the process of sun basking, were able to increase their body temperature in comparison with the one of the surrounding water.

  4. 4. Vegetation responses to summer- and winter warming : flower power in the Alaskan tussock tundra?

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Maja Wressel; [2018]
    Keywords : Arctic vegetation; snow depth; warming; vertical root distribution; tundra;

    Abstract : Plants have an important role in the tundra carbon (C) cycle by storing C in primary production and thus potentially counteract the C released from thawing permafrost. Tundra vegetation is limited by nitrogen (N), which is predicted to increase with rising temperatures and increased snow depth. READ MORE

  5. 5. Factors affecting damage to Scots pine in a multiple ungulate species system

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

    Author : Matthew Knibb; [2018]
    Keywords : ungulate; browsing damage; dung pellet group counts; land use; weather;

    Abstract : Managing browsing impacts on commercial forestry is one of the main aims of ungulate management in Sweden, with Scots Pine being one of the major forestry species. Moose is the ungulate species with the greatest management focus, although in parts of Sweden it is forms a multiple ungulate species system, along with red deer, roe deer and fallow deer. READ MORE
