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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Jörgen Olsson; Umeå universitet.; [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.

  2. 2. Conservation of saproxylic species

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Line Djupström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Forest management has altered the prerequisite of many species in forest landscapes. The new, more conservation-oriented forest management includes a range of different strategies that aim to prevent losses of biodiversity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ecosystem Services and Disservices in an Agriculture–Forest Mosaic A Study of Forest and Tree Management and Landscape Transformation in Southwestern Ethiopia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Tola Gemechu Ango; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; conservation; deforestation; ecosystem disservices; ecosystem services; forest; Ethiopia; land grabbing; livelihood; Oromia; policies; political ecology; trees; tropical landscape mosaic; geografi med kulturgeografisk inriktning; Geography with Emphasis on Human Geography;

    Abstract : The intertwined challenges of food insecurity, deforestation, and biodiversity loss remain perennial challenges in Ethiopia, despite increasing policy interventions. This thesis investigates smallholding farmers’ tree- and forest-based livelihoods and management practices, in the context of national development and conservation policies, and examines how these local management practices and policies transform the agriculture–forest mosaic landscapes of southwestern Ethiopia.

  4. 4. Buying Conservation - Financial Incentives for Tropical Forest Conservation in the Ecuadorian Amazon

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Torsten Krause; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Socio Bosque; Forest Conservation; Incentive-based instruments; Ecuador; Indigenous Communities;

    Abstract : Market-based instruments have become a widely used approach to motivate landowners to conserve forests instead of clearing them. However, such market-based instruments are increasingly criticized for their simplistic view on complex environmental, social and economic issues; for their ethical stance; and for creating exchange value for essential ecosystems services, which potentially perpetuates a flawed economic system.

  5. 5. Reserve selection in boreal forest

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Johanna Lundström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]

    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
