  3. 3. Plant community assembly during succession from arable fields to semi-natural grassland

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Barbara Christine Schmid; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diversity; arable-to-grassland succession; space-for-time approach; land-use history; plant community assembly; grazing management; connectivity measures; dispersal vector; vascular plants; grassland specialist conservation;

    Abstract : Large areas of grazed, species rich semi-natural grassland were lost in Europe during the last two centuries and as a consequence led to decreases in grassland specialist species. Therefore, today the “restoration” of grassland on previously arable fields is recommended for the protection of grassland specialists. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatial and temporal dynamics of nutrients in two agricultural catchments in southeast Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Andreas Milver; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HYPE-model; phosphorus; nitrogen; arable land; discharge; water quality modeling; snowmelt; nutrient transport; local information;

    Abstract : Many lakes and coast areas in Sweden and all over the globe suffer from eutrophication, caused by an overload of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N). In Sweden these emissions from point sources, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anthropogenic Open Land in Boreal Landscapes : Investigations into the Creation and Maintenance of Arable Fields on Swedish Farms

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Lovisa Solbär; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Landscape; timespace; time-geography; farming; boreal land use; time-economy; embedded values;

    Abstract : The human-induced open land (cropland, pasture) in the predominantly forested boreal landscapes relies on arable land use; it thus represents an active intervention to hold back forest regrowth. The thesis investigates the practical management decisions by landholders on discrete farms, which in Sweden often comprise both forest and arable lands. READ MORE
