  • Taxonomy and ecology of epilithic diatoms in Irish lakes 

    Kennedy, Bryan (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    Benthic algae are significant primary producers and important in biogeochemical cycling in shallow lakes in particular, but epilithic diatom ecology is poorly understood compared to phytoplankton and higher trophic levels. ...
  • General mechanisms for non-additivity between multiple stressors at higher temporal and biological scales 

    Orr, James (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    Multiple anthropogenic stressors threaten the diversity, stability and functioning of ecosystems worldwide. The combined effects of these stressors can, however, be surprisingly difficult to predict due to complex interactions ...
  • The role of helminth parasites in host invasion: a freshwater fish system 

    Tierney, Paula Angela (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    With the incidence of species invasions set to increase in the coming decades, it is increasingly important that research on invasive species impacts captures the complexity of natural ecosystems, including the influence ...
  • The value of ex situ collections for global biodiversity conservation in the wild 

    Mooney, Andrew (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    Despite the best efforts of conservation practitioners global biodiversity is continuing to decline. The role of zoos and aquariums in conserving global biodiversity ex situ has become increasingly important as more species ...
  • Hepatic ascariasis in a mouse model of relative susceptibility 

    DESLYPER, GWENDOLINE (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2020)
    The parasitic nematode Ascaris lumbricoides infects 800 million people worldwide. The age group most affected by this parasite are children between the ages of 5 and 15 years. The symptoms of ascariasis can be broadly ...
