Hairy roots of Peucedanum ostruthium (L.) Koch

Florian Gössnitzer
Peucedanum ostruthium (L.) Koch (masterwort) is a widely used plant in traditional Austrian medicine, e.g. in forms of liquor or tea. Coumarins in masterwort rhizomes are of pharmaceutical relevance, as a number of studies have shown antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant and antitumoral activities. The present thesis deals with the establishment of transformed hairy roots in Peucedanum ostruthium under controlled regimes. Multiple shoot cultures were established from aseptically germinated seeds. At this, germination frequency could...

\"What a Gawain should be\"

Barbara Marek
Die Figur des Gawein wurde in der Literatur um König Artus einerseits unterschiedlichst, andererseits aber auch mit immer wiederkehrenden Merkmalen dargestellt. Ausgehend von einer Betrachtung der Gattungstradition werden hier zwei Texte, Diu Crône von Heinrich von dem Türlin und der anonym überlieferte Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, untersucht, die auf keine geschlossene Quelle zurückgehen und in keinem direkten Abhängigkeitsverhältnis zueinander stehen. Entsprechend der literarischen Vorgänger im jeweiligen Sprachraum der Texte griffen Autoren und Publikum...

Nie mehr Sex!

Elisabeth Kittl
At the beginning of an elaborate examination of sex, gender identity, lust and desire and sexual behaviour or non-behaviour stands the question: “Is desire, which aims at intimate bodily contact with other persons – actual named ‘sex’ – without the energy of sex (the biological gender), gender role and gender identity conceivable?” At first heterosexuality and their apparently natural coherence with (anatomic and social) gender identity for species conserving will be tested. The categories of...

Strategien der Feuchtgebietsrestauration in Waasen

Barbara Dillinger
Die menschlichen Eingriffe, hauptsächlich durch Entwässerung und Landnutzungswandel, führten zur Zerstörung der einst ausgedehnten Feuchtlebensräume im Waasen (Nordburgenland) und machen eine ökologische Restauration notwendig. Zur Beschreibung des ökologischen Restaurationspotenzials des Gebietes wurden repräsentative Vegetationstypen erhoben und statistische Analysen durchgeführt, um den Zusammenhang mit den auf sie einwirkenden Umwelteinflüssen zu beschreiben. Des Weiteren wurde die Vernetztheit der kartierten Biotope analysiert. Die Vegetationserhebung ergab 34 verschiedene Vegetationstypen, die als Indikatoren für die herrschenden Umweltbedingungen und Grundlage für...

Martin Luther King und Malcolm X

Manuel Stenger
My diploma deals with the lives of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and examines their particular ideological points of view in concern of their different socialization.

Integration beginnt in der Schule

Sylvia Mayr
Migration is a ubiquitous phenomenon. However, it should be noticed that in South Tyrol its presence could be narrowed to a period of the last ten years, when public immigration became more visible. Therefore, the policy of handling the impacts of migration is still in its infancy. This can be illustrated by the fact that only in 2011, there was finally an integration act introduced in South Tyrol (being the last province of Italy), which...

Karin Stöger
The aim of this thesis is to examine the phenomenon of socialist market economies in China and Vietnam from a political-economic perspective.

The People's Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam however, constitute an exception to the...

Dankbarkeit und Körper

Jovita Tatschl
The body is the "silent" companion of the human. However, as long as he is performing well he receives little gratitude and appreciation. Thus, the underlying question of this thesis is: How is it possible to combine gratitude and body in order to feel gratitude for the body? The radical detachment of body and spirit leads back to the philosophical works of René Descartes around the seventeenth century. In the cultural- and social anthropology questions...

The influence of cognitive processes on eating behaviour - illustrated by the example of mental imagery

Benjamin Missbach
Background The consumption of food is determined by a variety of factors. The metabolic state is reflected by peripheral and central hormonal signals, representing a homeostatic regulation system. Contrary, nonhomeostatic eating refers to food intake in the absence of metabolic demands, driven by conditioned or rewarding motifs. A regulatory cross-talk can be observed on a micro and macro level, mediated through top-down or bottom-up signalling. It is known that top-down signalling can influence how much...

Standardvariation und Kodifizierung

Sandra Zenkner
This diploma thesis is concerned with the comparison of two dictionaries which focus on the Austrian-German language: “Das österreichische Wörterbuch” (ÖWB; 41th edition, 2009) and “Duden – Das österreichische Schulwörterbuch” (1st edition, 2008).

Institutions and ideas as the drivers of economic growth

This master’s dissertation concerns the issue of economic growth with particular attention to institutions and technological spillovers. The impact of those variables upon economic growth is investigated through the intermediate channel of technological progress.

The liberalization of Austria's mail market

Alexander Habicher
After three EU directives aiming at full liberalization of the postal market, Austria finally had to give way to a liberal mail market. However, the paths to implementation of the prescribed changes are manifold. When faced with the decision between strong market regulation by governments or truly allowing free enterprise, most countries seem to opt for the former. The motives might be ethical, or maybe they aren’t. In any case, economic science betrays the amassing...

Bäuerliches und städtisches Leben im Hoch- und Spätmittelalter

Verena Denkmayr
This thesis deals with "Rural and urban life in the High and Late Middle Ages". In the Middle Ages, 90 percent of the population worked in agriculture. The peasants were Hörige – Unfreie - and were dependent on a landlord. The simple and sad life of them was dominated by work from morning to night. Although there were some agro-technical innovations in the High Middle Ages such as the soil turning plough, there was hardly...

Development and evaluation of ion exchange-type chiral stationary phases for liquid chromatography and subcritical fluid chromatography

Franz Reinhard Pell
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) using chiral stationary phases (CSPs) is of central importance in both industry and academia for either analysis of enantiomeric purity of chiral molecules or (preparative) separation of enantiomers to obtain enantiomerically pure compounds. The present dissertation describes the preparation of low molecular weight ion exchange-type CSPs and their evaluation using HPLC and Supercritical (or Subcritical) Fluid Chromatography (SFC). The research carried out in the thesis can be divided into two...
