    • Causes and consequences of variation in blue tit nest construction 

      Järvinen, Pauliina
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII, Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 369 (Turun yliopisto, 08.05.2020)
      Species across taxa and the vast majority of birds build nests for reproduction. The bird nest functions as a receptacle for the eggs and young and as such determines successful reproduction. Through nest construction birds ...
    • Evolutionary quantitative genetics of animal personality in the wild 

      Class, Barbara
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 333 (Turun yliopisto, 27.10.2017)
      Individuals within populations often show repeatable behavioural differences which reflect variation in personality. In contrast to human personality, which has been extensively studied by psychologists ...
    • Guest ants and ant guests in red wood ant nests 

      Härkönen, Salla K.
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 338 (Turun yliopisto, 09.12.2017)
      Red wood ants (Formica rufa group) impact forest ecosystems in a multitude of ways and can thus be considered as ecosystem engineers. Although they are highly efficacious predators of many arthropods, their nests host a ...
    • Insights from unseen individuals – using non-invasive approaches to study population biology of white-tailed deer in Finland 

      Poutanen, Jenni
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja - Annales Universitatis Turkuensis, Ser A II: Biologica - Geologica : 367 (Turun yliopisto, 24.04.2020)
      Density, adult sex ratio and fecundity are biologically important population parameters, whose estimation is also essential for wildlife management and conservation. These parameters describe population viability and predict ...
    • Introduced marine crab species in the northern Baltic Sea : from detection to impacts 

      Forsström, Tiia
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 335 (Turun yliopisto, 01.12.2017)
      Human mediated species introductions are often irreversible, represent a world-wide problem and are considered one of the threats to marine biodiversity. Invasions can have an impact on the native species and communities, ...
    • Large-scale population dynamics of the Eurasian red squirrel 

      Turkia, Tytti
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 348 (Turun yliopisto, 28.09.2018)
      The size of an animal population is determined by the birth rate, mortality, and movement of individuals between populations. These demographic parameters, in turn, are affected by internal and external factors. Internal ...
    • Linking community dynamics with ecosystem processes in tundra Conceptual, empirical and methodological approaches 

      Tuomi, Maria
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja A II: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 365 (Turun yliopisto, 28.02.2020)
      In low-productive tundra systems, both small and large herbivores exert strong control over plant biomass and community composition. They may also modulate ecosystem process rates, including availability and cycling of ...
    • Movement and habitat selection of the Eurasian red squirrel 

      Hämäläinen, Suvi
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja A II: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 361 (Turun yliopisto, 05.10.2019)
      Movement ability and habitat selection of individuals are highly significant in determining the size of a population and impact the range and survival of the entire species. Thus, the conservation and management of animal ...
    • Questing ticks, hidden causes : tracking changes in Ixodes ricinus populations and associated pathogens in southwestern Finland 

      Sormunen, Jani
      Turun yliopiston julkaisuja. Sarja AII: Biologica - Geographica – Geologica : 349 (Turun yliopisto, 05.12.2018)
      Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) and tick-borne diseases, especially Lyme borreliosis caused by Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. spirochetes and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) caused by the TBE-virus (TBEV), are a growing problem in northern ...
    • Spatial behaviour, habitat use and breeding performance of a long-lived raptor in the context of wind energy

      Natural ecosystems and associated biota suffer from a wide range of human activities, including habitat destruction, land-use changes and climate warming. Easily subject to disturbance and often requiring large hunting ...
    • The conservation of declining grassland species in novel habitats 

      Lampinen, Jussi
