Introduced marine crab species in the northern Baltic Sea : from detection to impacts
(Turun yliopisto, 2017-12-01)
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, ...
Establishment and Enhancement of Mu in vitro DNA Transposition Applications: Novel Procedures and New Tools
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 324, 2016-10-21)
Transposable elements, or transposons, are DNA segments that have the ability to move from one location on the genome to another. They have been widely utilized as molecular tools in the study of prokaryotes, plants, ...
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 ...
Molluscan radiations and landscape evolution in Miocene Amazonia
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 232, 2009-02-21)
This PhD study aims to exploit the rich archive provided by the Miocene mollusc fauna of the Pebas Formation and other inland Miocene Amazonian formations to reconstruct landscape evolution and biotic development in lowland ...
Evolutionary quantitative genetics of animal personality in the wild
(Turun yliopisto, 2017-10-27)
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 ...
The Effects of Copper Exposure on Life-History Traits in Insects
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 328, 2016-12-16)
Human-caused environmental pollution is a fast-growing and devastating threat that organisms have to face and tolerate. The primary aim of this thesis was to experimentally study the direct and trans-generational ...

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 ...
Food hoarding of an avian predator under food limitation and climate change
(Turun yliopisto, 2020-10-23)
Hoarding behaviour (storing food for later use) has evolved to reduce the risk of starvation when resources are scarce. In this thesis, I studied the food-hoarding behaviour of Eurasian pygmy owls (Glaucidium passerinum) ...
