  1. 1. Direct and indirect pressures of climate change on nutrient and carbon cycling in northern forest ecosystems : Dynamic modelling for policy support

    Author : Klas Lucander; BECC: Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Forest; boreal ecosystems; Forest biogeochemistry; Forest bioenergy; Boreal coniferous forest; base cations; Biogeochemical cycles; Dynamic Modelling; Carbon cycle; nitrogen cycle; decision support; policy-making; Weathering; Forestry; Land use change;

    Abstract : Northern forest ecosystems play an important role in mitigating climate change by sequestrating carbon (C), while additionally providing and regulating other ecosystem services. A majority of the Swedish environmental quality objects (EQOs) that guide Swedish environmental policy and management are associated with the forest, and they have proven difficult to achieve.

  2. 2. Supporting Management of the Risk of Wind Damage in South Swedish Forestry

    Author : Erika Olofsson; Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; decision support; uncertainty; probability; wind climate; tree growth; forest management; spatial planning; topography; climate change; adaptation; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Private forest owners in southern Sweden consider wind damage to be one of the most problematic risks from an economic perspective. A potential climate change also raises the question of the possible impact of such a climate change on the risk of wind damage. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimal thinning : a theoretical investigation on individual-tree level

    Author : Peter Fransson; Åke Brännström; Ola Lindroos; Oskar Franklin; Per Lundberg; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Paper I: In paper I, we asked how a tree should optimally allocate its resources to maximize its fitness. We let a subject tree grow in an environment shaded by nearby competing trees. The competitors were assumed to have reached maturity and had stopped growing, thus creating a static light environment for the subject tree to grow in. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bioenergy from Swedish forests : A Study of extraction methods, quality and effects for forest owners

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; Johan Bergh; Peter Lerman; Gudmund Vollbrecht; Nasko Terziew; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; logging residues; forest fuels; moisture content; needles; nutrients; moisture content measurements; Norway spruce; dry-stacking; fresh-stacking; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : The forest constitutes a very important element of renewable natural resources and makes a significant contribution to the Swedish bioeconomy. Biofuels are Sweden’s largest source of energy; of all the energy we use, 32% comes from biofuels, and of this approximately 85% comes from the forest and the forestry sector. READ MORE
