  1. 1. A GIS-based landscape analysis of dissolved organic carbon in boreal headwater streams

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Jan-Olov Andersson; Lars Nyberg; Hjalmar Laudon; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; boreal forests; wetlands; vegetation types; headwater streams; catchment hydrology; streamwater chemistry; DOC; GIS; terrain analysis; DEM; slope; wetness index; TWI; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : In boreal catchments, stream water chemistry is influenced and controlled by several landscape factors. The influence of spatially distributed variables is in turn dependent on the hydrological scale. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cross-scale monitoring, landscape trajectories, and feedback in forest management : Examples from southern and middle boreal ecosystems in Sweden

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Sofia Eriksson; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi;

    Abstract : To manage for sustainability in a complex and changing world requires understanding of the coupled human-environmental system. The two case studies in this licentiate thesis are linked by what we can learn from past and current management in the form of feedback and how it can be incorporated into practical forest management within the boreal region.

  3. 3. Boreal vegetation responses to forestry as reflected in field trial and survey data and the quality of cover estimates and presence/absence in vegetation inventory

    University dissertation from Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Johan Bergstedt; Per Milberg; Göran Ståhl; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boreal forest; cutting intensity; scarification; cover estimates; presence absence; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi;

    Abstract : Den här avhandlingen belyser hur avverkning och markberedning påverkar markfloran i den svenska barrskogen. Dessutom utvärderas två inventeringsmetoder som används inom växtekologin. READ MORE

  4. 4. Plant polyploidy and interactions with insect herbivores

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Leena Arvanitis; Johan Ehrlén; Christer Wiklund; John N. Thompson; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diversicifation; herbivory; host plant preference; plant galls; plant-insect interactions; plant polyploidy; selection; spatial variation; trait-fitness relationship; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Polyploidization has been suggested to be a common mechanism for plant speciation. Polyploidy is associated with changes in plant traits and altered habitat preference. READ MORE

  5. 5. Non-target Effects of Genetically Modified Trees

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Patrik Blomberg; Anders Wennström; Jan Stenlid; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetically modified; GM trees; secondary metabolism; phytochemistry; Populus; transgenic; non-target effects; natural enemies; plant-pathogen herbivore interaction; environmental effects; parasitic fungi; herbivorous insect; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Terrestrial ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Terrestisk ekologi;

    Abstract : To date, few studies have focused on the effects of genetically modified trees (GM trees) on the environment. One concern with GM trees is that they may have unanticipated effects on non-target organisms, i.e. effects on organisms that are not direct targets of the genetically modified trait. READ MORE
