  2. 2. How could Christmas trees remain evergreen? : photosynthetic acclimation of Scots pine and Norway spruce needles during winter

    Author : Pushan Bag; Stefan Jansson; Fransis Andre Wollman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Scots Pine; Norway spruce; Photosynthesis; Winter adaptation; biologisk kemi; biological chemistry; biology; biologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Plants and other green organisms harvest sunlight by green chlorophyll pigments and covertit to chemical energy (sugars) and oxygen in a process called photosynthesis providing the foundation for life on Earth. Although it is unanimously believed that oceanic phytoplanktons are the main contributors to the global photosynthesis, the contribution of coniferous boreal forests distributed across vast regions of the northern hemisphere cannot be undermined.

  3. 3. Pine weevil feeding in Scots pine and Norway spruce regenerations

    Author : Kristina Wallertz; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Damage caused by the pine weevil, Hylobius abietis (L) feeding on conifer seedlings is a major problem in reforested areas in many parts of Europe. The adult weevil feeds on the stem-bark of young seedlings, frequently killing a large proportion of newly planted seedlings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Foliar fungi of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris)

    Author : Hanna Millberg; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) is an ecologically and economically important tree species in Fennoscandia. Scots pine needles host a variety of fungi, some with the potential to profoundly influence their host. These fungi can have beneficial or detrimental effects with important implications for both forest health and primary production. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic dissection of quantitative traits in Scots pine

    Author : Sara Abrahamsson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The phenotypic expressions of Scots pine, have been extensively studied over the years, but the gene regulation behind the traits has only just begun to be elucidated. The overall aim of this thesis was to start dissecting the genetics behind a number of adaptive traits in Scots pine and examine how they are influenced by relatedness using different molecular tools.
