The impact of human disturbances on the energy budget of Brent Geese,Branta b. bernicla, during spring migration was investigated in two different salt marsh areas within the national park “Schleswig-Holsteinisches Wattenmeer”, Germany. We used the frequency of disturbance-related reactions of the birds as an indicator of the anthropogenic influencing of(More)
Astrocytes express two sodium-coupled transporters, glutamate-aspartate transporter (GLAST) and glutamate transporter-1 (GLT-1), which are essential for the maintenance of low extracellular glutamate levels. We performed a comparative analysis of the laminar and subcellular expression profile of GLAST and GLT-1 in the developing postnatal mouse hippocampus(More)
The biocompatibility of different commercially available poly(ether)urethane (PUR), medically used as main component for pump chambers of implantable ventricular assist devices (VAD), was evaluated. We investigated the influence of the PUR manufacturing process in an in vitro cytotoxicity screening assay. Human saphenous vein endothelial cells (HSVEC) and a(More)
Based on the results of the “Applied Ecosystem Research in the Wadden Sea of Schleswig-Holstein” a comprehensive concept of environmental protection has been prepared. The synthesis report (Stock et al. 1996) provides the foundation for a future National Park Plan. Examples of the conceptual part of the report are summarised in this contribution. The future(More)
Nach einer 30tägigen Frostperiode im Februar/März 1986 konnten auf der niederländischen Wattenmeerinsel Texel 86 tote Austernfischer untersucht werden. 67% aller Totfunde wiesen Deformationen an Schnäbeln und Beinen auf. 60,7% waren Vögel im ersten Lebensjahr. Der Anteil adulter betrug 8,3%. Die Totfunde wiesen ein Untergewicht von 36% auf. Insgesamt(More)

Saltmarshes of the Hamburger Hallig (Nordfriesland, Germany) are an important foraging area for barnacle geese and wigeon. They were intensively grazed by sheep until 1991 when a grazing trial was started to study the impact of sheep grazing on salt marsh vegetation and fauna. In 1993 first investigations were carried out in the Puccinellia marŸ dominated(More)
