  1. 1. Dynamics of Selachian (Shark) Dental Morphology During the Early Mesozoic

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Alexander Paxinos; [2017]
    Keywords : Early Mesozoic; Selachii; morphological disparity; geometric morphometrics; early radiation; Tidig Mesozoisk; Selachimorpha; morfologisk disparitet; geometrisk morfometri; tidig strålning;

    Abstract : The ancestors of all modern day sharks and rays (Neoselachii) may have appeared during the Late Palaeozoic, but their major diversification happened sometime during the Early Mesozoic. Taxonomic evidence places the first neoselachian diversification in the Early Jurassic. READ MORE

  2. 2. Growth and biodegradation by Sporidiobolales yeasts in vanillin-supplemented medium

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för arbets- och folkhälsovetenskap

    Author : Natalia González Gaarslev; [2017]
    Keywords : Sporobolomyces; Vanillin; Internal Transcribed Spacer ITS ; Thin layer chromatography TLC ; Neubauer’s chamber; Sporobolomyces; Vainillina; Espaciador Transcribible Interno ETI ; Cromatografia en capa fina CCF ; Cámara de Neubauer;

    Abstract : Studies of biodegradation in lignins by basidiomycetes yeasts show the conversion of lignin in various degradation products among which vanillin, a valuable substance, suggested to be a strong inhibitor of both fermentation and growth of yeasts, stands. Sporidiobolales yeasts used in these experiments were aimed to be identified by their highly conserved ITS region as well as studied in vanillinsupplemented medium through, vanillin-supplemented plates, TLC and Neubauer’s chamber to find out which, among the several isolates tested, were the most resistant ones, understand how they take up vanillin and how their growth is affected by the presence of the phenolic compound.

  3. 3. Disparity of Early Cretaceous Lamniformes sharks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Fredrik Söderblom; [2015]
    Keywords : Lamniformes; disparity; Early Cretaceous; morphology; morphometric; Lamniformes; disparitet; tidig krita; morfologi; morfometri;

    Abstract : The geological range of lamniform sharks stretches from present day species such as Carcharodon carcharias (great white shark) back to the at the moment oldest undoubted fossil finds during the Early Cretaceous. In this paper a geometric morphometric analysis was performed on images of Early Cretaceous lamniform teeth collected from published literature in order to examine the change in disparity (range of morphological variation within a group) throughout the time period.
