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

    Author : Carlos Valbuena-Gonzalo; [2019]
    Keywords : TMII; BMII; behaviour; predation; non-comsuptive effect;

    Abstract : The importance of Trait Mediated Indirect Interactions (TMII) is increasingly being recognized. TMII are interactions between two species via a change in trait (behavioural, morphological, but not numerical) over a third one, which together cause ecological dynamics. READ MORE

  2. 12. The effect of riparian buffer properties on spider communities and aquatic-terrestrial food-web lingages : using polyunsaturated fatty acids as biomarkers

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment

    Author : Ellinor Ramberg; [2019]
    Keywords : riparian buffer; polyunsaturated fatty acids; spiders; trophic connectivity; subsidies; agricultural landscape;

    Abstract : Riparian habitats are key habitat interfaces that regulate flows of resource subsidies between aquatic and terrestrial food webs, whilst supporting high biodiversity andproviding ecosystem services. However, frequently these habitats are highly degraded, especially in agricultural landscapes. READ MORE

  3. 13. Påverkar klimatförändringen trofisk fraktionering av C och N mellan växt och konsument i sötvattenekosystem?

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment

    Author : Evelina Hiltunen; [2018]
    Keywords : chironomus riparius; stable isotopes; trophic fractionation; climate change; oligotrophication;

    Abstract : Temperaturhöjningen som en följd av klimatförändringen väntas gå fortast och bli störst på Nord- och Sydpolen. När lufttemperaturen stiger, stiger även vattentemperaturer och vegetationsgränser flyttas. Detta skulle kunna vara orsaken till den näringsutarmning som kan ses i många arktiska sjöar. READ MORE

  5. 15. Diversity of ecosystems : Variation in network structure among food webs

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Author : Björn Eriksson; [2016]
    Keywords : biodiversity; ecosystems; ecosystem diversity; food webs; network structure;

    Abstract : Biodiversity loss is one of the major threats to humanity. This has led to an increasing amount of research on biodiversity on genetic and species levels. Studies of diversity at the ecosystem level has however been neglected. An important aspect of ecosystems is food webs that describe the predation-prey interactions between species. READ MORE
