Phase variation in Flavobacterium psychrophilum : influence on host-pathogen interactions
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2014-05-28)
Dynamic ecosystems under anthropogenic stress : how does macrotidal sandy fauna respond to green tides?
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2016-05-20)
Highly dynamic systems, often considered as resilient systems, are characterised by abiotic and biotic processes under continuous and strong changes in space and time. Because of this variability, the detection of overlapping ...
Patterns in diversity and function of benthic fauna in a coastal system under environmental change
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2017-03-10)
Increasing changes in environmental conditions are reshaping marine ecosystems and their communities on a global scale. Coastal areas are particularly vulnerable as environmental stressors have a stronger impact due to the ...
Spatial distributions of phytoplankton in rock pools : metacommunities to molecules
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2017-04-28)
Ecological studies on how populations and communities assemble and function traditionally focussed on the effects of local environmental conditions and species interactions. Still, no species, the consequences of its actions ...
Phosphorus in the sediments of the northern Baltic Sea archipelagos : internal P loading and Its impact on eutrophication
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2017-03-31)
In the 20th century Eutrophication as a result of anthropogenic enrichment of nutrients has become a global problem in marine coastal waters. In the Baltic Sea, eutrophication is considered the most severe environmental ...
Ocean acidification in the Baltic Sea : implications for the bivalve Macoma balthica
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2017-04-12)
The Baltic Sea is one of the most human-impacted sea areas in the world and its ecosystems are exposed to a variety of stressors of anthropogenic origin. Large changes in the environmental conditions, species and communities ...
Copepods in a changing sea : ocean acidification, long-term changes and short-term variability
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2017-05-19)
The rapid increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is causing global warming but also changes in the ocean chemistry. When carbon dioxide dissolves in seawater it changes the carbonate chemistry towards lower levels of ...
Genetic diversity and phenotypic variability of phytoplankton populations in the Baltic Sea
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2015-09-18)
Effects of algal turbidity on foraging and antipredator behaviour of the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus)
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2015-10-23)
The aim of this thesis was to examine how aquatic organisms, such as fish, behave in an altered environmental condition. Many species of fish use vision as their primary tool to gain information about their surrounding ...
Climate driven changes in temperature, pH and food quality : effects on copepod reproduction
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2012-10-12)
Increased emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere are causing an anthropogenic climate change. The resulting global warming challenges the ability of organisms to adapt to the new temperature conditions. However, ...
