Diel patterns and tissue-specificity of environmental responses in fish
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 313, 2016-04-22)
Humans are profoundly changing aquatic environments through climate change and the release of nutrients and chemicals. To understand the effects of these changes on natural populations, knowledge on individuals’ environmental ...
Abiotic and biotic effects on secondary sexual traits at the population and individual levels in a passerine bird
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 322, 2016-10-07)
Sexual selection is a major evolutionary force that may lead to changes in morphology, behaviour, mating systems, life history evolution and even speciation and extinction. In this thesis, I studied how abiotic and biotic ...
Ecological and Epidemiological Analyses of Multiple Sclerosis Relapse Rate
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 247, 2010-02-05)
The underlying cause of many human autoimmune diseases is unknown, but several environmental factors are implicated in triggering the self-destructive immune reactions. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease ...
Molecular Evolution of Metazoan Hypoxia-inducing Factors
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 253, 2010-08-27)
Most metazoans rely on aerobic energy production, which is dependent on adequate oxygen supply. In the case of reduced oxygen supply (hypoxia), the most profound changes in gene expression are mediated by transcription ...
The Effects of Nutritional Environment on Inbreeding Depression and the Expression of Condition-Dependent Traits
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 266, 2012-02-17)
Advanced biofuel production: Engineering metabolic pathways for butanol and propane biosynthesis.
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 514, 2015-05-22)
Greenhouse gases emitted from energy production and transportation are dramatically changing the climate of Planet Earth. As a consequence, global warming is affecting the living conditions of numerous plant and animal ...
RNA Silencing and its Inhibition in transgenic Tobacco Plants
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis AII 219, 2007-12-15)
The Role of Oxidative Stress in Environmental Responses of Fennoscandian Animals
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 296, 2014-12-05)
All aerobic organisms have to deal with the toxicity of oxygen. Oxygen enables more efficient energy production compared to anaerobic respiration or fermentation, but at the same time reactive oxygen species (ROS) are being ...
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 ...
Factors Affecting the Distribution of the Eurasian Beaver and the North American Beaver in Finland
(Turun yliopisto, 2021-09-03)
ABSTRACT Understanding the factors affecting the distribution of species lies at the core of ecology and is becoming increasingly important in the field of applied ecology, such as conservation biology and wildlife ...
