    Abstract : Land use change constitutes a primary driving force in shaping social-ecological systems world wide, and its effects reach far beyond the directly impacted areas. Graph based landscape ecological tools have become established as a promising way to efficiently explore and analyze the complex, spatial systems dynamics of ecological networks in physical landscapes.

  2. 2. Considering landscape in practices of transport planning

    Author : Sofia Löfgren; Charlotta Johansson; Kristina L. Nilsson; Simin Davoudi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; transport planning; knowledge; landscape; planning theory; Arkitektur; Architecture;

    Abstract : A well-known challenge in planning is for the professionals involved to handle multiple sources ofknowledge and to influence decision-making as a result. This challenge is the main focus of this research and in order to explore it I have directed attention to the integration of knowledge pertaining to landscape in practices of transport planning.

  3. 3. Intensification of wood production in NW Russia's Komi Republic : forest landscape history and biophysical conditions for tree growth

    Author : Vladimir Naumov; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Globally, countries with forests and woodlands make attempts to manage their resources in sustainable way. In the boreal biome this has resulted in several policy documents regulating forest planning and operations at multiple levels of governance. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the contribution of forest bioenergy to climate change mitigation

    Author : Olivia Cintas Sanchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Forest bioenergy; forest management; climate change; energy systems.; GHG balances; forest supply; carbon budget;

    Abstract : Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have to be drastically reduced to keep global warming below 2 degrees. Bioenergy can play a role in climate change mitigation by substituting for fossil fuels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Managing green infrastructures : trophic interactions in anthropogenic and natural ecosystems

    Author : Michael Manton; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The term green infrastructure addresses the spatial structure of anthropogenic, semi-natural and natural areas, as well as other environmental features which enable society to benefit from ecosystems’ multiple services. Focusing on two green infrastructures, anthropogenic wet meadows and natural forest successions, this thesis applies a macro-ecological approach based on comparisons of multiple landscapes as complex social-ecological systems.
