    Abstract : Land use change constitutes a primary driving force in shaping social-ecological systems world wide, and its effects reach far beyond the directly impacted areas. Graph based landscape ecological tools have become established as a promising way to efficiently explore and analyze the complex, spatial systems dynamics of ecological networks in physical landscapes.

  2. 2. Spatial distribution and conservation planning of seabed biological diversity

    Author : Genoveva Gonzalez-Mirelis; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial autocorrelation; ecological classifications; distribution modelling; biotopes; conservation planning; biodiversity surrogates; GIS; spatial ecology; benthos; fjord;

    Abstract : Knowledge of spatial patterns of biota has become a commodity for conservation practitioners and spatial ecologists alike. This type of information enables the identification of representative and unique biological features (at some nominal scale) which itself constitutes the application par excellence of knowledge of biodiversity distribution as it relates to the design of reserve networks and the realization of spatial planning.

  3. 3. Geo-environmental considerations in transport infrastructure planning

    Author : Caroline Karlsson; Bo Olofsson; Ulla Mörtberg; Joanne Robison Fernlund; João Manuel Coutinho Rodrigues; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Roads; Railways; Geology; GIS; Decision support; Modelling; Land and Water Resources Engineering; Mark- och vattenteknik;

    Abstract : Transport infrastructure constitutes one of the key factors to a country’s economic growth. Investment in new transport infrastructure might cause potential environmental impacts, and if a project has several alternative corridors open for suggestion then each alternative corridor will have a different impact on the environment.

  4. 4. Out of the wild : studies on the forest as a recreational resource for urban residents

    Author : Olof Olsson; Kerstin Westin; Annika Nordlund; Louise Eriksson; Gun Lidestav; Cecil Konijnendijk van den Bosch; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; forest values and beliefs; GIS; public participation; recreation; social forest qualities; spatial interaction; urban forest; urban fringe forest; urban planning; urbanization; Social and Economic Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : This thesis explores and analyzes the demand for and supply of forests in and near urban areas from a social perspective. Specific focus is directed towards recreational qualities of forests located just outside urban borders, that is, urban fringe forests. To this end, the thesis is based on four empirical research papers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Critical loads - assessment of uncertainty

    Author : Andreas Barkman; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; landscape planning; regionalisation; forestry; BC Al; sensitivity analysis; risk assessment; Monte Carlo simulation; PROFILE; critical level; exceedance; Acidification; forest soil; policy; EMEP; GIS.; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : The effects of data uncertainty in applications of the critical loads concept were investigated on different spatial resolutions in Sweden and northern Czech Republic. Critical loads of acidity (CL) were calculated for Sweden using the biogeochemical model PROFILE. READ MORE
