  1. 1. Plant-plant communication - possible mechanisms and benefits

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Författare :Maria Hedsén; [2019]
    Nyckelord :plant-plant communication; plant interactions by VOC; plant interactions by sound; photomorphogenesis; thigomorphogenesis; bioacoustics;

    Sammanfattning : Plants interact with their environment in many ways. They can emit and receive volatile organic compounds (VOC) and sound. They can reflect specific wavelengths of light and detect these light signals, reflected by other plants. They can also feel when they are touched and distinguish different types of touch. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Behavioural study of the house cricket (Acheta domesticus) : individual boldness and personality

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Författare :John-Christophe Hessler Frelinckx; [2019]
    Nyckelord :house crickets; Acheta domesticus; boldness; behavioural traits; personality in insects;

    Sammanfattning : The study of personality in species can be used to better understand the dynamics of a population. Personality is however a wide concept and is often divided into easier and identifiable terms when it concerns animalia such as “Behavioural traits”. One such trait is boldness which is often used as a distinguishable trait. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Changed behavior in the house cricket Acheta domesticus : predetermined or an effect of learning?

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Författare :Caroliné Olofsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :personality; crickets; boldness; animal personality; learning;

    Sammanfattning : The interest in animal personality have increased the last couple of decades and several studies have been made trying to explain why these differences in behaviour exist between individuals. Some of these studies have found that an individual’s personality changes as it ages and to explain these, theories focusing on genetic and phenotypic aspects has been used. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Remotely monitoring heart-rate and feeding behaviour of fish by using electronic sensor-tags

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Författare :Therese Arvén Norling; [2017]
    Nyckelord :bio-logging; remote monitoring; behaviour; electronic sensors; heart rate; acceleration;

    Sammanfattning : Modern electronic sensor tags (BioLoggers) can collect high resolution data on movement and physiology of fish. These tools make it possible to remotely monitor physiological stress responses as well as complex behaviours, such as feeding and hunting, in free swimming wild fish, data that often is difficult to collect by other means.

  5. 5. The Behavioural Ecology of a Potentially Undescribed Morph of Saki Monkey (genus Pithecia) in a Highly Diverse Primate Community

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för ekologi och genetikUppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Författare :Emily Lehtonen; [2017]
    Nyckelord :Amazon; behavioural ecology; niche differentiation; Peru; Pithecia; primates; saki monkey;

    Sammanfattning : The importance of tropical forests for global diversity and ecosystem function is well established in scientific literature, but is undermined by gaps in our knowledge of tropical ecosystems and species. Primates play important functional roles in these ecosystems, and despite constituting one of the most well-recognised taxa in the world, many species remain poorly studied. LÄS MER
