  1. 1. A land of one's own : Sami resource use in Sweden's boreal landscape under autonomous governance

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Forest Ecology and Management, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Gudrun Norstedt; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; ALS; archaeology; boreal forest; dendrochronology; forest history; historical maps; interdisciplinary research; lidar; Sami; settlement patterns; ALS; arkeologi; boreal skog; bosättningsmönster; dendrokronologi; historiska kartor; lidar; samer; skogshistoria; tvärvetenskap;

    Abstract : The Sami dominated large parts of boreal Sweden well into the 18th century, and knowledge of Sami subsistence patterns is therefore a key to the region’s forest history. Although much research has been done on Sami resource use and landscape impact, the context is often vaguely understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Colonization Patterns of Wood-inhabiting Fungi in Boreal Forest

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Jörgen Olsson; Lars Ericson; Jørund Rolstad; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wood-inhabiting fungi; colonization; dispersal; restoration fire; saproxylic beetles; conservation; forest management; boreal forest; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi;

    Abstract : Forest management practices have changed the over-all structure of the Fennoscandian forest landscape resulting in a lack of suitable substrates for many wood-inhabiting species. The objectives of this thesis was to describe the colonization patterns of wood-inhabiting fungi, including the potential role of beetles as dispersal vectors, on different types of dead wood substrate and assess the importance of active measures in the forest landscape in order to restore biodiversity i.

  3. 3. Reserve selection in boreal forest : focusing on young forest biodiversity potential

    University dissertation from ; Department of Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Johanna Lundström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Most boreal forests in North Europe are intensively managed, and the forest landscape is far from its natural stage leading to hundreds of species being threatened in Sweden alone. Reserves are established to protect biodiversity, but since the resources available for conservation do not cover all species in need of protection, effective prioritization is essential. READ MORE

  5. 5. Insect diversity on clearcuts in boreal forest landscapes

    University dissertation from ; Department of Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Diana Rubene; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Intensive management and loss of natural disturbance dynamics in boreal forests leads to habitat loss and degradation for forest dwelling species. As a consequence, many species have become threatened, especially those dependent on dead wood. READ MORE
