Top-down and bottom-up impacts of the Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo sinensis) on coastal benthic communities in the Baltic Sea
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 318, 2016-06-03)
Toll-like receptor 9 in breast cancer
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 320, 2016-06-10)
The innate immune system recognizes microbial features leading to the activation of the adaptive immune system. The role of Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) is to recognize microbial DNA. In addition to immune cells, TLR9 is ...
Signals of selection and the genetic basis of milk production in cattle
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 326, 2016-10-28)
Domesticated species such as cattle have evolved under natural and artificial selection, leading to cattle breeds (both Bos taurus and Bos indicus) that display a broad phenotypic spectrum. As a result of intensive artificial ...
Tritrophic interactions among plants, herbivores and plant mutualists
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 332, 2017-09-09)
Plants form the first trophic level in terrestrial ecosystems and provide energy and nutrients to higher trophic levels. Herbivores, frugivores or fungal endophytes use plants directly, while ...
Taxonomy, species richness and biogeography of Finnish crane flies (Diptera, Tipuloidea).
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 276, 2013-01-25)
Biodiversity is unequally spread throughout terrestrial ecosystems. The highest species richness of animals and plants is encountered around the Equator, and naturalists observe a decrease in the number of creatures with ...
Evolution and sources of individual variation in mate preferences in humans
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 290, 2014-06-02)
Macroalgal Defenses Against Herbivory: Causes and Consequences of Intraspecific Variation
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 319, 2016-06-10)
In marine benthic communities, herbivores consume a considerable proportion of primary producer biomass and, thus, generate selection for the evolution of resistance traits. According to the theory of plant defenses, ...
Thylakoid Protein Phosphorylation in Regulation of Photosynthesis
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis AII 242, 2009-11-20)
Once the seed has germinated, the plant is forced to face all the environmental changes in its habitat. In order to survive, plants have evolved a number of different acclimation systems. The primary reaction behind plant ...
Phylogeography and population genetics of north European Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis AII 220, 2008-03-01)
Although abundant in the number of individuals, the Atlantic salmon may be considered as a threatened species in many areas of its native distribution range. Human activities such as building of power plant dams, offshore ...
Ecological and physical factors affecting growth, productivity and herbivory load in the physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.)
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 330, 2017-05-29)
Jatropha curcas (L.) is a multipurpose oil bearing shrub assumed to be able to survive in a wide range of ecological conditions across the tropical regions of the world. The thesis is composed of two parts, the first one ...
