    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Ingrid Bergman; [2022]
    Keywords : limnology; phytoplankton; top-down control;

    Abstract : Gonyostomum semen is a raphidophyte microalgae that can be found in brown water lakes all over Sweden. The species forms substantial summer blooms that can completely dominate the phytoplankton community, largely due to its limited grazing pressure. To test whether parasites control the abundance of G. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of northern pike (Esox lucius) populations in the Baltic Sea, and potential effects of grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) predation

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Aquatic Resources

    Author : Rebecka Svensson; [2021]
    Keywords : diet analysis; ; marine mammals; predator-prey; socio-economic; sport fishing; recreational fisheries;

    Abstract : Worldwide, marine mammal populations are increasing after considerable efforts to turn the downward trends caused by hunting, accidental mortality and pollution. The ecosystem effects from the increases of these top predators may be pronounced, but are in most cases poorly known. READ MORE

    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : When studying populations of animals, you might want to try to predict the future population growth of the animals within a region. While there are other factors in play and depending on the looked at species, one of the major factors to look at can be the predator-prey relationship between two species. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fire effects in a landscape of fear : food availability and perceived predation risk as potential determinants of patch utilization by herbivore prey

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

    Author : David Kymmell; [2019]
    Keywords : landscape of fear; forest fire effects; herbivore prey; camera trapping;

    Abstract : Context: A major effect of climatic change is the global increase in forest fires, which potentially creates an increase in food availability for herbivorous species. Also vegetation density and the numbers of tree logs increase in burned sites, and this is thought to influence the perceived risk of herbivore prey species, which affects their anti‐predator behaviour and thereby the patch utilization.
