  1. 1. Responses to declining zoobenthos abundance : Changes over time in diet and growth of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus)

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

    Author : Douglas Skarp; [2020]
    Keywords : charr; zoobenthos; growth; diet;

    Abstract : A decline in the density of zoobenthos has taken place in Lake Abiskojaure in the northern Swedish mountains between 1988 and 2019 but no response can be seen in the abundance (CPUE) of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) that feed mainly on benthic invertebrates. To evaluate if possible shifts in resource use of charr explain this lack of change in population abundance, stomach contents (i. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spatial patterns of zooplankton communities In Swedish mountain and boreal lakes.

    University essay from

    Author : Juan Manuel de la Quintana; [2020]
    Keywords : Lake; zooplankton; phytoplankton; DOC and DIN:TP.;

    Abstract :     Zooplankton is crucial for lake ecosystems as it is an important component in most of the food webs of these ecosystems. However, environmental changes have caused reductions in ecosystems nutrients and stoichiometry, which directly affects phytoplankton’s development and quality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nitrogen runoff, constructed wetlands and the effect on catch of fish in the Öresund strait

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Saga Hedstigen Sundblad; [2020]
    Keywords : seafloor oxygen demand; fish catch; constructed wetland; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Eutrophication and low dissolved oxygen levels are spreading all over the world, causing changes in fish distribution and decline in fish abundance and catch of fish. This study assesses the current nitrogen (N) surface runoff to the Öresund strait, the seafloor oxygen demand it cause, the subsequent effect on fish catch, and the constructed wetland area needed to retain current N loads.

  5. 5. Declining abundance and shifting distribution for Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, in the western Antarctic Peninsula

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i biologi

    Author : Kerstin Holmström; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, a polar ocean specialist, thrives in the Antarctic severe physical conditions. The krill life cycle consists of strategies that have enabled and supported the species’ dominance of the Antarctic Ocean. Sea Ice extent and duration creates condition that are crucial for survival of the Furcilia larvae. READ MORE
