  1. 1. TIME FOR SHIFT CHANGE IN THE FABRIC OF EXISTENCE Exploring the role of darkness and artificial light for humans and biodiversity

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

    Författare :Maya Strömgren; [2021-06-23]
    Nyckelord :Darkness; artificial light; light pollution; biodiversity; human- non-human relations; all-ecology; non-representational theory; Mörker; artificiellt ljus; ljusföroreningar; biodiversitet; människa-natur relationer; all-ekologi; non-representational theory;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis departs from the loss of biodiversity due to artificial light at night. The diurnal human has taken over all hours of the day instead of the natural light once, meaning that space and time have become limited for the nocturnal living species. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Investigation of sex-based differences in responses to artificial light of the greater waxmoth (Galleria mellonella)

    Magister-uppsats, Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för företagande, innovation och hållbarhet

    Författare :Prasoon Singh; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Light pollution; Galleria mellonella; warm-white light; moths behaviour; attraction;

    Sammanfattning : Artificial light at night (ALAN) is becoming a greater threat to nocturnal species. Aside from the overall increase in light output, replacing outdated monochromatic street lighting with light-emitting diode (LED) lights with a broad emission spectrum could raise this issue more.

  3. 3. Impact of different light sources on the responses of moth

    Magister-uppsats, Högskolan i Halmstad

    Författare :Yanhe Zhou; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Artificial light at night ALAN ; Greater wax moth; Light Attraction; light emitting diodes; LED; Galleria mellonella;

    Sammanfattning : In recent decades, the negative effects of artificial light at night on natural ecosystems have attracted the attention of ecologists. Studies have shown that artificial light at night leads to a considerable reduction in insects and has a worrying impact on terrestrial ecosystems, including nocturnal insects (e.g. Lepidoptera) such as moths.

  4. 4. Testing migratory Bogong moth (Agrotis infusa) in orientation experiments using an artificial representation of the Milky Way

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Julius Jansson; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The Bogong Moth, Agrotis Infusa, is a migratory moth native to South-Eastern Australia. These nocturnal insects migrate over more than 1000 km from their breeding grounds to caves in the Australian alps. To find their way during this migration, individuals of the species use several compass cues, both magnetic and celestial. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Nocturnal moths use of novel habitats : a case study on a power line in a forest-mire mosaic in boreal Sweden

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

    Författare :Oskar Lövbom; [2020]
    Nyckelord :pollinators; Lepidoptera; moth; transmission line; assemblage structure; Noctuoidea; Geometridae;

    Sammanfattning : Biodiversity and pollinators are declining all over the world, and a factor thought to cause this decline is destruction of natural habitats. One new way that has been discussed in an effort to try to mitigate the effects of declining habitats is to understand and use novel habitats, which are habitats created when, for example, building roads, railways, and power lines.
