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) ...
Differential Regulation of c-FLIP Isoforms Through Post-translational Modifications
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 241, 2009-11-13)
Cells are constantly responding to signals from the surrounding tissues and the environment. To dispose of infected and potentially dangerous cells, to ensure the optimal execution of developmental processes and to maintain ...
Bumblebees in a Changing Climate: Evaluating the Effects of Temperature on Queen Performance
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 301, 2015-05-09)
Bumblebees are a very essential group of pollinating insects, but their populations have declined drastically during the past decades. We need to understand why their numbers are decreasing and what can be done to reverse ...
Mapping species-habitat associations in lowland Amazonia: an across-scale perspective with biogeographical implications
(Turun yliopisto, 2017-12-09)
Amazonia is the largest continuous forest in the world, and is a terrestrial ecosystem with one of the highest estimated number of plant species globally. Even with the accumulated knowledge on species distributions in ...
