  1. 1. Modelling soil temperature and carbon storage changes for Swedish boreal forests

    Author : Magnus Svensson; KTH; []
    Keywords : SPAC; soil surface energy balance; Norway spruce; canopy; LAI; climate; nitrogen; CoupModel;

    Abstract : With the use of a process-orientated ecosystem model andmeasurements conducted at different Swedish coniferous forestsites, abiotic and biotic interactions between tree and soilwere identified and related to governing factors. Two differentmodelling approaches to describe soil temperatures at two sitesincluding hydrological transects were tested (I). READ MORE

  2. 2. Wooded or treeless pastures? : Linking policy, farmers' decisions and biodiversity

    Abstract : Worldwide, biodiversity conservation is one of the key challenges for a sustainable future of nature and society. It is particularly important to preserve high quality habitats within otherwise intensively managed agricultural landscapes. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Responses of tree-associated species to forest management

    Author : Åsa Ranlund; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In forests there are many organisms that depend on trees. When forests are managed the environment for tree-associated species changes, and a lot of their habitat is lost. In boreal forests it is common with clearcutting, where almost all trees are harvested. READ MORE
