  1. 1. Soil nitrogen fluxes and root uptake in the boreal forest

    Author : Olusegun Ayodeji Oyewole; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Nitrogen (N) is essential for growth and net primary production of plants. However, N acquisition by plants is influenced by movement of soil N compounds from bulk soil to plant roots and uptake of N by roots. This thesis is aimed at deepening our knowledge on these key processes involved in plant N acquisition in the N-limited boreal forest. READ MORE

  2. 2. Chlorine Cycling in Terrestrial Environments

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Malin Montelius; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chloride; organic chlorine; chlorination; dechlorination; 36Cl; risk assessment modelling; Klorid; organiskt klor; klorering; deklorering; klor-36; riskmodellering;

    Abstract : Chlorinated organic compounds (Clorg) are produced naturally in soil. Formation and degradation of Clorg affect the chlorine (Cl) cycling in terrestrial environments and chlorine can be retained or released from soil. READ MORE

  3. 3. Importance of tannins for responses of aspen to anthropogenic nitrogen enrichment

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Franziska Bandau; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; aspen; foliar condensed tannins; genetic variability; anthropogenic nitrogen enrichment; plant growth; plant defense; litter decomposition; Populus tremula; asp; kondenserade tanniner; genetisk variabilitet; antropogent kväve; tillväxt; växtförsvar; förna nedbrytning; Populus tremula; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany; Entomology; entomologi; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik; Population Biology; populationsbiologi;

    Abstract : Boreal forests are often strongly nitrogen (N) limited. However, human activities are leading to increased N inputs into these ecosystems, through atmospheric N deposition and forest fertilization. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis studied the viability of recycling filter substrates as soil amendments after being used in on-site systems for phosphorus (P) removal from wastewater. Focus was put on the materials Filtra P and Polonite, which are commercial products used in compact filters in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence of soil amendments and soil properties on macro– and micronutrient availability to microorganisms and plants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Atefeh Ramezanian Bajgiran; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Utilising by-products from industrial and domestic activities and from bioenergy production is one of the new ways of recovering and re-using nutrient resources in agriculture. However, these by-products can potentially add toxic elements or alter soil properties in ways that harm the soil and related environments. READ MORE
