Economy in the La-T`ene Period
Rozsypal, Jan ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Frank Danielisová, Alžběta (referee)
The object of this thesis is a component of the extensive issue of the economy of La-Tène period, namely the problem regarding the nourishment of oppida. In a domestic research, this issue tends to be a part of most economic models created for the La-Tène period. Two main dissimilar approaches are being used, and researchers achieve distinctively heterogenous results. This distinct difference is one of the main subjects of the thesis. The goal of this thesis is not to create a new economical model or to solve the questions concerning the nourishment of oppida. The goal is a comparison and analysis of the approaches, that were presented in current economic models. I will test the approaches from the aspect of an exchange relations, including the usege of new findings about exchange, that were made in the fields of other humanities. Keywords La-Tène, economy, oppidum, exchange, multidisciplinary
Insect overwintering: physiological and biochemical adaptations to low temperatures
Complex experimental data on insect adaptation for survival at low temperatures, with special reference to overwintering in temperate climate zone, are presented in this thesis. The cold tolerance strategies were examined in four species: the codling moth (Cydia pomonella), the bark beetle (Ips typographus), the red firebug (Pyrrhocoris apterus), and the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). Two of these species, C. pomonella and I. typographus, are serious pests and knowledge on their overwintering biology is of great importance for development of pest management programs. Numerous physiological and biochemical parameters, such as supercooling point, thermal hysteresis between melting and freezing points, survival in supercooled and frozen states, osmolality of hemolymph, water and energy reserves, and detailed metabolomic composition of hemolymph and tissues were studied during cold season in the field-collected animals or analyzed in laboratory-acclimated animals in order to assess the insects' capacity for winter survival.
An experimental research on predator discrimination under laboratory conditions
Great tits (Parus major) and blue tits (Parus caeruleus) were tested, whether they can recognize different forms of sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) as a predator. Responses to stuffed sparrowhawk, wooden dummy and a photograph of sparrowhawk projected on plasma TV were tested. Tits treated both stuffed and wooden sparrowhawk almost equally. Reactions to photograph on TV did not differ significantly from control. Wooden dummies of adequate design seem to be suitable for use in experiments with birds. On contrary, photograph did not elicit appropriate response and it cannot be used at least with untrained birds.
