At any given moment, our senses are assaulted with a flood of information from the environment around us. We need to pick our way through all this information in order to be able to effectively respond to that what is relevant to us. In most cases we are usually able to select information relevant to our intentions from what is not relevant. However, what happens to the information that is not relevant to us? Is this irrelevant information completely ignored so that it does not affect our actions? The literature suggests that even though we mayrnignore an irrelevant stimulus, it may still interfere with our actions. One of the ways in which irrelevant stimuli can affect actions is by retrieving a response with which it was associated. An irrelevant stimulus that is presented in close temporal contiguity with a relevant stimulus can be associated with the response made to the relevant stimulus " an observation termed distractor-response binding (Rothermund, Wentura, & De Houwer, 2005). The studies presented in this work take a closer look at such distractor-response bindings, and therncircumstances in which they occur. Specifically, the study reported in chapter 6 examined whether only an exact repetition of the distractor can retrieve the response with which it was associated, or whether even similar distractors may cause retrieval. The results suggested that even repeating a similar distractor caused retrieval, albeit less than an exact repetition. In chapter 7, the existence of bindings between a distractor and a response were tested beyond arnperceptual level, to see whether they exist at an (abstract) conceptual level. Similar to perceptual repetition, distractor-based retrieval of the response was observed for the repetition of concepts. The study reported in chapter 8 of this work examined the influence of attention on the feature-response binding of irrelevant features. The results pointed towards a stronger binding effects when attention was directed towards the irrelevant feature compared to whenrnit was not. The study in chapter 9 presented here looked at the processes underlying distractor-based retrieval and distractor inhibition. The data suggest that motor processes underlie distractor-based retrieval and cognitive process underlie distractor inhibition. Finally, the findings of all four studies are also discussed in the context of learning.

Water-deficit stress, usually shortened to water- or drought stress, is one of the most critical abiotic stressors limiting plant growth, crop yield and quality concerning food production. Today, agriculture consumes about 80 " 90 % of the global freshwater used by humans and about two thirds are used for crop irrigation. An increasing world population and a predicted rise of 1.0 " 2.5-°C in the annual mean global temperature as a result of climate change will further increase the demand of water in agriculture. Therefore, one of the most challenging tasks of our generation is to reduce the amount water used per unit yield to satisfy the second UN Sustainable Development Goal and to ensure global food security. Precision agriculture offers new farming methods with the goal to improve the efficiency of crop production by a sustainable use of resources. Plant responses to water stress are complex and co-occur with other environmental stresses under natural conditions. In general, water stress causes plant physiological and biochemical changes that depend on the severity and the duration of the actual plant water deficit. Stomatal closure is one of the first responses to plant water stress causing a decrease in plant transpiration and thus an increase in plant temperature. Prolonged or severe water stress leads to irreversible damage to the photosynthetic machinery and is associated with decreasing chlorophyll content and leaf structural changes (e.g., leaf rolling). Since a crop can already be irreversibly damaged by only mild water deficit, a pre-visual detection of water stress symptoms is essential to avoid yield loss. Remote sensing offers a non-destructive and spatio-temporal method for measuring numerous physiological, biochemical and structural crop characteristics at different scales and thus is one of the key technologies used in precision agriculture. With respect to the detection of plant responses to water stress, the current state-of-the-art hyperspectral remote sensing imaging techniques are based on measurements of thermal infrared emission (TIR; 8 " 14 -µm), visible, near- and shortwave infrared reflectance (VNIR/SWIR; 0.4 " 2.5 -µm), and sun-induced fluorescence (SIF; 0.69 and 0.76 -µm). It is, however, still unclear how sensitive these techniques are with respect to water stress detection. Therefore, the overall aim of this dissertation was to provide a comparative assessment of remotely sensed measures from the TIR, SIF, and VNIR/SWIR domains for their ability to detect plant responses to water stress at ground- and airborne level. The main findings of this thesis are: (i) temperature-based indices (e.g., CWSI) were most sensitive for the detection of plant water stress in comparison to reflectance-based VNIR/SWIR indices (e.g., PRI) and SIF at both, ground- and airborne level, (ii) for the first time, spectral emissivity as measured by the new hyperspectral TIR instrument could be used to detect plant water stress at ground level. Based on these findings it can be stated that hyperspectral TIR remote sensing offers great potential for the detection of plant responses to water stress at ground- and airborne level based on both TIR key variables, surface temperature and spectral emissivity. However, the large-scale application of water stress detection based on hyperspectral TIR measures in precision agriculture will be challenged by several problems: (i) missing thresholds of temperature-based indices (e.g., CWSI) for the application in irrigation scheduling, (ii) lack of current TIR satellite missions with suitable spectral and spatial resolution, (iii) lack of appropriate data processing schemes (including atmosphere correction and temperature emissivity separation) for hyperspectral TIR remote sensing at airborne- and satellite level.

This thesis considers the general task of computing a partition of a set of given objects such that each set of the partition has a cardinality of at least a fixed number k. Among such kinds of partitions, which we call k-clusters, the objective is to find the k-cluster which minimises a certain cost derived from a given pairwise difference between objects which end up the same set. As a first step, this thesis introduces a general problem, denoted by (||.||,f)-k-cluster, which models the task to find a k-cluster of minimum cost given by an objective function computed with respect to specific choices for the cost functions f and ||.||. In particular this thesis considers three different choices for f and also three different choices for ||.|| which results in a total of nine different variants of the general problem. Especially with the idea to use the concept of parameterised approximation, we first investigate the role of the lower bound on the cluster cardinalities and find that k is not a suitable parameter, due to remaining NP-hardness even for the restriction to the constant 3. The reductions presented to show this hardness yield the even stronger result which states that polynomial time approximations with some constant performance ratio for any of the nine variants of (||.||,f)-k-cluster require a restriction to instances for which the pairwise distance on the objects satisfies the triangle inequality. For this restriction to what we informally refer to as metric instances, constant-factor approximation algorithms for eight of the nine variants of (||.||,f)-k-cluster are presented. While two of these algorithms yield the provably best approximation ratio (assuming P!=NP), others can only guarantee a performance which depends on the lower bound k. With the positive effect of the triangle inequality and applications to facility location in mind, we discuss the further restriction to the setting where the given objects are points in the Euclidean metric space. Considering the effect of computational hardness caused by high dimensionality of the input for other related problems (curse of dimensionality) we check if this is also the source of intractability for (||.||,f)-k-cluster. Remaining NP-hardness for restriction to small constant dimensionality however disproves this theory. We then use parameterisation to develop approximation algorithms for (||.||,f)-k-cluster without restriction to metric instances. In particular, we discuss structural parameters which reflect how much the given input differs from a metric. This idea results in parameterised approximation algorithms with parameters such as the number of conflicts (our name for pairs of objects for which the triangle inequality is violated) or the number of conflict vertices (objects involved in a conflict). The performance ratios of these parameterised approximations are in most cases identical to those of the approximations for metric instances. This shows that for most variants of (||.||,f)-k-cluster efficient and reasonable solutions are also possible for non-metric instances.

Ziel der Dissertation ist es, den Hochwasserschutz und das Management extremer Hoch-wasser für das Einzugsgebiet der Isar zu verbessern mit Hinblick darauf, wie sich vorhandene und neu zu schaffende Retentionsräume mit optimaler Wirkung für das gesamte Flusssystem einsetzen lassen. Dafür sind Kenntnisse über extreme Ereignisse und deren Auswirkung auf die betrachteten Einzugsgebiete notwendig. Großskalige Niederschläge in Mitteleuropa werden überwiegend durch Vb-artige Zugbahnen ausgelöst. Die Relevanz für Bayern zeigt die Auswertung des neuesten Kataloges der Vb-Zugbahnen für den Zeitraum 1959 bis 2015. In den Monaten April bis Oktober haben Vb-Zugbahnen zu ca. 30 % der beobachten Hochwasser beigetragen. Im Sommer führt sogar jedes zweite Vb-Tief zu Hochwasser. Im Donaueinzugsgebiet können 50 % der 20 größten Hochwasser direkt auf Vb-Zugbahnen zurückgeführt werden, weitere 25 % durch ähnliche Zugbahnen oder auf eine Vb aktiven Phase. Über die Hälfe der größten Hochwasser traten dabei in Bezug zu einer Serie von Vb-Tiefs auf. 60 % der Vb-Zugbahnen sind Teil einer Serie von Vb-Tiefs. Aus wiederkehrenden Niederschlägen persistenter Zugbahnen resultieren mehrgipflige Hochwasserwellen, die insbesondere für Rückhalteräume betrachtet werden müssen (DIN 19700). Die Detailuntersuchung erfolgt unter besonderer Beachtung der Untersuchungen zu den Vb-Zugbahnen. Das Isareinzugsgebiet mit 8900 km-² besitzt mit den Seen im Voralpenland große natürliche Retentionsräume und mit dem Sylvensteinspeicher im alpinen Einzugsgebiet den größten staatlichen Speicher Bayerns. Für die Wirkungsanalyse von gekoppelten Hoch-wasserrückhalteräumen in komplexen Einzugsgebieten müssen Ganglinien mit einem Nie-derschlag-Abfluss-Modell generiert werden, die den Wellenablauf des Hochwassers im ge-samten Einzugsgebiet repräsentieren. Die Dissertation analysiert, wie sich der Einsatz ver-schiedener Verfahren zur Vorgabe der Eingangsniederschläge auswirkt. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung auf dem Niederschlagsverlauf. Es wird ein Verfahren zur Ableitung von Ganglinien aus standardisierten beobachteten Niederschlagsverläufen entwi-ckelt. Die Hochwasserganglinien, generiert aus synthetischen Niederschlagsverläufen der Bemessung, werden am Beispiel des Sylvensteinspeichers mit den drei größten abgelaufe-nen Hochwasserereignissen verglichen und diskutiert, ob mit dem neuen Verfahren die Cha-rakteristik der beobachten Hochwasser besser wiedergeben wird. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf der Wellenüberlagerung. Es kann für das ganze Gebiet gezeigt werden, dass die mit der neuen Methode standardisierten beobachteten Niederschlagsverläufe besser geeignet sind, die Wellenüberlagerung wiederzugeben, da zeitliche Unterschiede durch die Staueffekte an den Alpen berücksichtigt werden, wie sie bei Vb-Zugbahn geprägten Niederschlägen entste-hen. Es kann daher bei ähnlichen Fragestellungen empfohlen werden, diese Methode in der Praxis als Variante hinzuzuziehen, um die natürlichen Prozesse repräsentativer zu beschrei-ben. Für die Simulation mit dem N-A-Modell LARSIM werden die Unsicherheiten durch Varianten-rechnungen gezeigt. Es hat sich herausgestellt, dass nicht nur der Niederschlagsverlauf und die Vorbedingungen des Ereignisses eine große Auswirkung auf die Kalibrierung der Ab-flussbeiwerte im N-A-Modell haben, sondern auch das gewählte Flood-Routing-Verfahren und die Gerinnerauheit. Schließlich wird die Bewertung der potenziellen Standorte durchgeführt. Es wird berechnet, wo das Hochwasser zurückgehalten werden muss, um sowohl eine lokale Reduktion des Hochwasserscheitels, als auch gleichzeitig eine möglichst große Schutzwirkung für das Ge-samtsystem zu ermöglichen. Priorisiert werden Rückhaltestandorte, die praktisch umsetzbar sind und den größten Nutzen haben. Die Untersuchung einer Doppelwelle, die durch eine Serie von Vb-Zugbahnen entstehen kann, zeigt, wie die Einschätzung potenzieller Standorte verändern kann. Der alpine und zum Teil der voralpine Raum reagieren mit kurzen steilen Ganglinien und sind gegenüber Doppelwellen weniger sensitiv, weil kaum Wellenüberlagerung entsteht. Für den Sylvensteinspeicher, der im alpinen Raum liegt, können daher kurze Niederschlagspausen für eine schnelle Entlastung des Speicherraumes genutzt werden. Un-terhalb von Seen mit einem großen Retentionsvermögen erzeugen Doppelwellen aufgrund der langen Retentionsäste durch die Wellenüberlagerung deutlich höhere Abflüsse als Ein-zelwellen. Rückhalt an der oberen Isar ist unter diesen Kriterien am optimalsten. Empfohlene Maßnahmen - ohne Bauaufwand - konnten bereits umgesetzt werden und verbessern den Hochwasserschutz und das Hochwassermanagement an der Isar. Die Auswertungen zeigen, dass in den Monaten April, Mai, September und Oktober die Hochwasserereignisse in Folge von Vb-Zugbahnen im Zuge der Klimaveränderung häufiger und in den Sommermonaten extremer werden könnten.

Leeches can parasitize many vertebrate taxa. In amphibians, leech parasitism often has potential detrimental effects including population decline. Most of studies on the host-parasite interactions involving leeches and amphibians focus on freshwater environments, while they are very scarce for terrestrial amphibians. In this work, we studied the relationship between the leech Batracobdella algira and the European terrestrial salamanders of the genus Hydromantes, identifying environmental features related to the presence of the leeches and their possible effects on the hosts. We performed observation throughout Sardinia (Italy), covering the distribution area of all Hydromantes species endemic to this island. From September 2015 to May 2017, we conducted >150 surveys in 26 underground environments, collecting data on 2629 salamanders and 131 leeches. Water hardness was the only environmental feature correlated with the presence of B. algira, linking this leech to active karstic systems. Leeches were more frequently parasitizing salamanders with large body size. Body Condition Index was not significantly different between parasitized and non-parasitized salamanders. Our study shows the importance of abiotic environmental features for host-parasite interactions, and poses new questions on complex interspecific interactions between this ectoparasite and amphibians.

The availability of data on the feeding habits of species of conservation value may be of great importance to develop analyses for both scientific and management purposes. Stomach flushing is a harmless technique that allowed us to collect extensive data on the feeding habits of six Hydromantes species. Here, we present two datasets originating from a three-year study performed in multiple seasons (spring and autumn) on 19 different populations of cave salamanders. The first dataset contains data of the stomach content of 1,250 salamanders, where 6,010 items were recognized; the second one reports the size of the intact prey items found in the stomachs. These datasets integrate considerably data already available on the diet of the European plethodontid salamanders, being also of potential use for large scale meta-analyses on amphibian diet.

Production of biomass feedstock for methanation in Europe has focused on silages of maize and cereals. As ecological awareness has increased in the last several years, more attention is being focused on perennial energy crops (PECs). Studies of specific PECs have shown that their cultivation may enhance agrobiodiversity and increase soil organic carbon stocks while simultaneously providing valuable feedstock for methanation. This study was designed to compare soil quality indicators under annual energy crops (AECs), PECs and permanent grassland (PGL) on the landscape level in south-western Germany. At a total 25 study sites, covering a wide range of parent materials, the cropping systems were found adjacent to each other. Stands were commercially managed, and PECs included different species such as the Cup Plant, Tall Wheatgrass, Giant Knotweed, Miscanthus, Virginia Mallow and Reed Canary Grass. Soil sampling was carried out for the upper 20 cm of soil. Several soil quality indicators, including soil organic carbon (Corg), soil microbial biomass (Cmic), and aggregate stability, showed that PECs were intermediate between AEC and PGL systems. At landscape level, mean Corg content for (on average) 6.1-year-old stands of PEC was 22.37 (±7.53) g kg1, compared to 19.23 (±8.08) and 32.08 (±10.11) for AEC and PGL. Cmic contents were higher in PECs (356 ± 241 lgCg1) compared to AECs (291 ± 145) but significantly lower than under PGL (753 ± 417). The aggregate stability increased by almost 65% in PECs compared to AEC but was still 57% lower than in PGL. Indicator differences among cropping systems were more pronounced when inherent differences in the parent material were accounted for in the comparisons. Overall, these results suggest that the cultivation of PECs has positive effects on soil quality indicators. Thus, PECs may offer potential to make the production of biomass feedstock more sustainable.

Ziel der hier bereitgestellten Anforderungskataloge ist es, einen Überblick über die Anforderungen zu geben, welche an FDM-Services in den Geisteswissenschaften und in der Psychologie gestellt werden. Dies soll Hochschulen und außeruniversitären Forschungseinrichtungen die Möglichkeit geben, ihre eigenen Servicekataloge um FDM-Services zu erweitern, welche auf die spezifischen Bedarfe der Forschenden in diesen Disziplinen abgestimmt sind. Zudem sollen diese Anforderungskataloge als Vorlage für die Entwicklung weiterer Anforderungskataloge dienen, welche die fachspezifischen FDM-Services in anderen Fachdisziplinen spezifizieren.

Reptiles belong to a taxonomic group characterized by increasing worldwide population declines. However, it has not been until comparatively recent years that public interest in these taxa has increased, and conservation measures are starting to show results. While many factors contribute to these declines, environmental pollution, especially in form of pesticides, has seen a strong increase in the last few decades, and is nowadays considered a main driver for reptile diversity loss. In light of the above, and given that reptiles are extremely underrepresented in ecotoxicological studies regarding the effects of plant protection products, this thesis aims at studying the impacts of pesticide exposure in reptiles, by using the Common wall lizard (Podarcis muralis) as model species. In a first approach, I evaluated the risk of pesticide exposure for reptile species within the European Union, as a means to detect species with above average exposure probabilities and to detect especially sensitive reptile orders. While helpful to detect species at risk, a risk evaluation is only the first step towards addressing this problem. It is thus indispensable to identify effects of pesticide exposure in wildlife. For this, the use of enzymatic biomarkers has become a popular method to study sub-individual responses, and gain information regarding the mode of action of chemicals. However, current methodologies are very invasive. Thus, in a second step, I explored the use of buccal swabs as a minimally invasive method to detect changes in enzymatic biomarker activity in reptiles, as an indicator for pesticide uptake and effects at the sub-individual level. Finally, the last part of this thesis focuses on field data regarding pesticide exposure and its effects on reptile wildlife. Here, a method to determine pesticide residues in food items of the Common wall lizard was established, as a means to generate data for future dietary risk assessments. Subsequently, a field study was conducted with the aim to describe actual effects of pesticide exposure on reptile populations at different levels.

The Harmonic Faber Operator
(2018)

P. K. Suetin points out in the beginning of his monograph "Faber
Polynomials and Faber Series" that Faber polynomials play an important
role in modern approximation theory of a complex variable as they
are used in representing analytic functions in simply connected domains,
and many theorems on approximation of analytic functions are proved
with their help [50].
In 1903, the Faber polynomials were firstly discovered by G. Faber. It was Faber's aim to find a generalisation of Taylor
series of holomorphic functions in the open unit disc D
in the following way. As any holomorphic function in D
has a Taylor series representation
f(z)=\sum_{\nu=0}^{\infty}a_{\nu}z^{\nu} (z\in\D)
converging locally uniformly inside D, for a simply connected
domain G, Faber wanted to determine a system of polynomials (Q_n)
such that each function f being holomorphic in G can be expanded
into a series
f=\sum_{\nu=0}^{\infty}b_{\nu}Q_{\nu}
converging locally uniformly inside G. Having this goal in mind,
Faber considered simply connected domains bounded by an analytic Jordan
curve. He constructed a system of polynomials (F_n)
with this property. These polynomials F_n were named after him
as Faber polynomials. In the preface of [50],
a detailed summary of results concerning Faber polynomials and results
obtained by the aid of them is given.
An important application of Faber polynomials is e.g. the transfer
of known assertions concerning polynomial approximation of functions
belonging to the disc algebra to results of the approximation of functions
being continuous on a compact continuum K which contains at least
two points and has a connected complement and being holomorphic in
the interior of K. In this field, the Faber operator
denoted by T turns out to be a powerful tool (for
an introduction, see e.g. D. Gaier's monograph). It
assigns a polynomial of degree at most n given in the monomial
basis \sum_{\nu=0}^{n}a_{\nu}z^{\nu} with a polynomial of degree
at most n given in the basis of Faber polynomials \sum_{\nu=0}^{n}a_{\nu}F_{\nu}.
If the Faber operator is continuous with respect to the uniform norms,
it has a unique continuous extension to an operator mapping the disc
algebra onto the space of functions being continuous on the whole
compact continuum and holomorphic in its interior. For all f being
element of the disc algebra and all polynomials P, via the obvious
estimate for the uniform norms
||T(f)-T(P)||<= ||T|| ||f-P||,
it can be seen that the original task of approximating F=T(f)
by polynomials is reduced to the polynomial approximation of the function
f. Therefore, the question arises under which conditions the Faber
operator is continuous and surjective. A fundamental result in this
regard was established by J. M. Anderson and J. Clunie who showed
that if the compact continuum is bounded by a rectifiable Jordan curve
with bounded boundary rotation and free from cusps, then the Faber
operator with respect to the uniform norms is a topological isomorphism.
Now, let f be a harmonic function in D.
Similar as above, we find that f has a uniquely determined representation
f=\sum_{\nu=-\infty}^{\infty}a_{\nu}p_{\nu}
converging locally uniformly inside D where p_{n}(z)=z^{n}
for n\in\N_{0} and p_{-n}(z)=\overline{z}^{n}
for n\in\N}. One may ask whether there is an analogue for
harmonic functions on simply connected domains G. Indeed, for a
domain G bounded by an analytic Jordan curve, the conjecture that
each function f being harmonic in G has a uniquely determined
representation
f=\sum_{\nu=-\infty}^{\infty}b_{\nu}F_{\nu}
where F_{-n}(z)=\overline{F_{n}(z\)} for n\inN,
converging locally uniformly inside G, holds true.
Let now K be a compact continuum containing at least two points
and having a connected complement. A main component of this thesis
will be the examination of the harmonic Faber operator mapping a harmonic
polynomial given in the basis of the harmonic monomials \sum_{\nu=-n}^{n}a_{\nu}p_{\nu}
to a harmonic polynomial given as \sum_{\nu=-n}^{n}a_{\nu}F_{\nu}.
If this operator, which is based on an idea of J. Müller,
is continuous with respect to the uniform norms, it has a unique continuous
extension to an operator mapping the functions being continuous on
\partial\D onto the continuous functions on K being
harmonic in the interior of K. Harmonic Faber polynomials and the
harmonic Faber operator will be the objects accompanying us throughout
our whole discussion.
After having given an overview about notations and certain tools we
will use in our consideration in the first chapter, we begin our studies
with an introduction to the Faber operator and the harmonic Faber
operator. We start modestly and consider domains bounded by an analytic
Jordan curve. In Section 2, as a first
result, we will show that, for such a domain G, the harmonic Faber
operator has a unique continuous extension to an operator mapping
the space of the harmonic functions in D onto the space
of the harmonic functions in G, and moreover, the harmonic Faber
operator is an isomorphism with respect to the topologies of locally
uniform convergence. In the further sections of this chapter, we illumine
the behaviour of the (harmonic) Faber operator on certain function
spaces.
In the third chapter, we leave the situation of compact continua bounded
by an analytic Jordan curve. Instead we consider closures of domains
bounded by Jordan curves having a Dini continuous curvature. With
the aid of the concept of compact operators and the Fredholm alternative,
we are able to show that the harmonic Faber operator is a topological
isomorphism.
Since, in particular, the main result of the third chapter holds true
for closures K of domains bounded by analytic Jordan curves, we
can make use of it to obtain new results concerning the approximation
of functions being continuous on K and harmonic in the interior
of K by harmonic polynomials. To do so, we develop techniques applied
by L. Frerick and J. Müller in [11] and adjust them to
our setting. So, we can transfer results about the classic Faber operator
to the harmonic Faber operator.
In the last chapter, we will use the theory of harmonic Faber polynomials
to solve certain Dirichlet problems in the complex plane. We pursue
two different approaches: First, with a similar philosophy as in [50],
we develop a procedure to compute the coefficients of a series \sum_{\nu=-\infty}^{\infty}c_{\nu}F_{\nu}
converging uniformly to the solution of a given Dirichlet problem.
Later, we will point out how semi-infinite programming with harmonic
Faber polynomials as ansatz functions can be used to get an approximate
solution of a given Dirichlet problem. We cover both approaches first
from a theoretical point of view before we have a focus on the numerical
implementation of concrete examples. As application of the numerical
computations, we considerably obtain visualisations of the concerned
Dirichlet problems rounding out our discussion about the harmonic
Faber polynomials and the harmonic Faber operator.
