    Wageningen PhD theses

    This database contains bibliographic descriptions of all Wageningen University PhD theses from 1920 onwards. It is updated on a daily basis by WUR Library.

    Author abstracts and/or summaries are added to all descriptions. A link to the full text dissertation is added to the bibliographic description. In a few cases, no electronic version is available, mostly because of copyright issues.

    Hard copies of all theses are available for loan at WUR Library. To request them, click the link Request this publication in the full record presentation. This is a fee based service.

Processing lignocellulosic by-product streams using organic acids [PhD thesis]

lignocellulosic wastes - straw - bioethanol - biobased economy - biorefinery - residual streams

Het doel van dit proefschrift is om de voorbehandeling van lignocelluloseachtige grondstoffen met organische zuren te bestuderen. Meer specifiek gesteld, richt dit onderzoek zich op de invloed van maleïnezuur en fumaarzuur op de suikerafbraak tijdens de voorbehandeling, en op de prestatie van deze zuren in de voorbehandeling zelf, vergeleken met zwavelzuur. De optimalisatie van de voorbehandeling met maleïnezuur houdt niet alleen in het maximaliseren van de suikeropbrengst en de gerelateerde baten, maar houdt ook rekening met nadelige kanten van de voorbehandeling die hogere kosten met zich meebrengen. Als laatste richt dit onderzoek zich op mogelijkheden om de toepassing van maleïnezuur uit te breiden naar andere, eiwithoudende lignocelluloseachtige grondstoffen. Omdat tarwe de meest verbouwde graansoort is in de Europese Unie, is tarwestro gekozen als grondstof voor het werk over voorbehandeling van lignocellulose in dit proefschrift. Voor het werk over eiwithoudende lignocelluloseachtige grondstoffen is gekozen voor het bijproduct van biodieselproductie uit oliezaden van Jatropha curcas; de ontoliede perskoek.

Fresh fruit and vegetables: a world of multiple interactions : the case of the Buenos Aires Central Wholesale Market (BACWM) [PhD thesis]
Viteri, M.L. \ 2010
sociology - ethnography - markets - wholesale marketing - social interaction - fresh products - vegetables - fruit - argentina - towns

This research explores ethnographically the everyday social interactions between the ‘users’ of a particular marketplace, the Buenos Aires Central Wholesale Market (BACWM). The ‘users’ of this marketplace are the social actors who work there everyday, and who bring and buy fresh produce. These ´users´ are the ´makers´ of the BACWM since, through their everyday practices, interactions and interpretations and knowledge, they socially construct this hub of distribution.

Is there chaos out there? : analysis of complex dynamics in plankton communities [PhD thesis]
Benincà, E. \ 2010
plankton - aquatic organisms - population change - population density - population dynamics - chaos - mathematical models - population biology

Species often show irregular fluctuations in their population abundances. Traditionally, ecologists have thought that external processes (e.g., variability in weather conditions) are the main drivers of these ups and downs. However, recent theoretical work suggests that fluctuations in natural populations may also be driven by internal mechanisms (e.g., the interplay between species). In this thesis I use a combination of time series analysis and modeling to provide more insight into the question to which extent such internally generated chaos might drive the population dynamics of plankton communities under controlled as well as natural conditions. In short, this thesis demonstrates in theory and experiment that species in plankton communities may rise and fall forever in a chaotic way. This result challenges the traditional view that nature is at equilibrium and that only externally driven processes may disturb this equilibrium.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
