This thesis describes the genesis of the Diversity Checker, a tool meant to provoke journalists into producing more diverse content in an intelligent fashion. Diversity in media is a very broad topic, and the project that this thesis is a part of is similarly broad in its scope. The multidisciplinary nature of the project enables the various disciplines to influence each other positively, and in particular it gives the work presented here a ...

Characterisation of the relation between florsitic diversity, soil microbial diversity and biogeochemical processes in a pristine wetland (Bierbza, Poland) Ghent University
With this project, we want to investigate whether there is a link between floristic diversity and microbial community structure and how this affects nitrogen biogeochemistry. The specific objectives are: 1. To study the effect of changeing plant diversity on microbial community structure and key microorganisms 2. To quantify N-biogeochemistry and the uptake of N-species by micro-organisms under varying plant diversity 3. To study whether ...

Concept features and lexical diversity. A dialectological case study on the relationship between meaning and variation KU Leuven
This dissertation focuses on lexical diversity, the amount of lexical variation that a concept shows, in the dialects of Dutch. Lexical diversity can differ between concepts. For the concept 'drunk', for instance, nearly 3000 English expressions exist, including blitzed, intoxicated, hammered and I’m not as think as you drunk I am (Dickson 2009, cited in Lillo 2009). For the concept 'sober', however, a ...

Effects of tree species diversity on vitality, growth and tree quality of young forest stands. KU Leuven
Land-use intensification is often put forward as a key driver of global change, including biodiversity loss. Although intensification has thoroughly helped solving short-term resource deficits, a sustainable delivery of multiple ecosystems services from high-input low-diversity systems is increasingly disbelieved.
Understanding the linkages between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (BEF) therefore evolved into a pivotal line of ...
