Impacts of multistressors on the survival and life history traits of Daphnia Pulex
Bezirci, Gizem; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Department of Biology (2008)
As Daphnia have an important role in freshwater food webs, it is important to understand how environmental stressors affect their survival and life history traits. Daphnia pulex were first acutely exposed to a combination of NaCl salinities (0.00-10.0 g/L) and fish-exuded kairomone. The 24 and 48 hour LC50 values were 0.401 and 0.159 g/L in kairomone-absence and 1.962 and 1.007 g/L in kairomone-presence. Hence, survival decreased with increasing salinity, while the kairomone enhanced daphnid resistance to s...
Evaluation of the adaptation process of a reintroduced anatolian mouflon (ovis gmelinii anatolica) population through studying its demography and spatial ecology
Özüt, Deniz; Kence, Aykut; Department of Biology (2010)
In this thesis the demography, home range and habitat selection of a reintroduced population of Anatolian mouflon (Ovis gmelinii anatolica), which had a single remaining population, was studied to evaluate the reintroduction success and determine the conservation management interventions. For this purpose among 104 individuals reintroduced in Sarıyar Wildlife Protection Area (Ankara, Turkey), 40 adults were radio-collared and 28 juvenile were ear-tagged and monitored from 2005 to 2009. The survival of the p...

Exploring the STEM Readiness level of high schools in Ankara
Yiğit, Ümran; Öztürk, Gökhan; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2019)
In order to exist in the economic race in the rapidly changing and developing world, technology is not only required to be used but also produced. This is only possible through the production of qualified manpower in different disciplines. STEM education, occurs with abbreviation of words Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, enhances the capacity of students to develop innovation by developing critical, analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, has been an interdisciplinary approach. At t...
Determination of home range size and habitat selection of Gazelles (Gazella subgutturosa) by GPS telemetry in Şanliurfa
Durmuş, Mustafa; Kence, Meral; Department of Biology (2010)
Goitered gazelle is one of the threatened species of Turkey living in only ġanlıurfa region. In this study, goitered gazelles have been released to their previous habitat in Şanlıurfa-Suruç region and seven of females were collared with GPS collars. These individuals were monitored for a year and their seasonal habitat selection and home range sizes are determined by using location data recorded on the collars. In addition to 4 seasons of the year, home range and habitat selection are estimated for mating a...
