  1. 1. Using remote sensing and land abandonment as a proxy for long-term human out-migration. A Case Study: Al-Hassakeh Governorate, Syria

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Berit Mohr; [2021]
    Keywords : geography; GIS; remote sensing; Syria; vegetation indices; land abandonment; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Author : Elin Lindmark; [2021]
    Keywords : ontogenetic niche shift; habitat availability; size structure; brown trout;

    Abstract : One common consequence of ontogenetic niche shifts is that juveniles and adults of the same species often use different resources and habitats. Theory suggests that variation in productivity and/or habitat size for the respective life stage regulates size distribution of individuals and population biomass. READ MORE
