    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; urban agriculture; urban history; urban geography; Sweden; town; food production; food consumption; Uppsala; historical geography; land allocation; cadastral maps; urban land-use; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis analyses the role of historical urban agriculture in a long-time perspective, through a combination of overarching surveys of Swedish towns and detailed studies of one town – Uppsala in east-central Sweden. The study shows how agricultural land – town land – of various sizes was donated to towns repeatedly during medieval times and in the 16th and 17th centuries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Land-Use and Climate Effects of Bioenergy: Carbon balances of Swedish forest bioenergy systems – and – Geospatial biomass supply-and-demand matching for Europe

    Author : Olivia Cintas Sanchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; GIS; EU; bioenergy; Sweden; agriculture; residues; Forestry; climate change; GHG balances;

    Abstract : In order to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, greenhouse gas emissions have to be drastically reduced. Bioenergy can play a role in climate change mitigation by substituting for energy from fossil fuels; however, biomass is a limited resource associated with emissions from land use and land-use change.
