    University dissertation from Stockholm : Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis

    Author : Åsa Romson; Jonas Ebbesson; Ole Kristian Fauchald; Mads Andenæs; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; policy space; environmental law; international investment law; IIA; fair and equitable treatment; legitimate expectations; national treatment; indirect expropriation; chilling effect; miljörätt; Environmental Law;

    Abstract : This dissertation analyses the implications of international investment law on host states’ legal ability to protect the environment, regulate sustainable use of natural resources, and develop new approaches to manage environmental risks and uncertainties. ‘Environmental policy space’ is found to be a useful term when exploring the regulatory autonomy in this context.

    University dissertation from ; Department of Work Science, Business Economics and Environmental Psychology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Fredrik Fernqvist; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]

    Abstract : Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is one of the most important horticultural crops and is produced, traded and consumed all over the world. For horticultural products, the concept of quality is an indispensably important factor in consumers’ decision-making process and choice. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dormancy in reproductive vegetative buds in creeping perennials dominating the agricultural weed flora in Scandinavia

    University dissertation from ; Dept. of Crop Production Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Josefine Liew; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]

    Abstract : Dormancy, which is the inability to initiate normal growth under otherwise favourable conditions, is an adaptation to escape sprouting prior to seasonal cold temperatures and/or drought in areas where winters are harsh or summers dry. Dormancy in woody perennials of northern temperate areas is, in general, induced by photoperiodic and/or temperature changes, and released after prolonged exposure to chilling. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim was to elucidate the cardiovascular response associated with breath-hold diving, especially the effects of temperature in its elicitation and the effects of different types of training on the human diving response (DR) and breath-holding time (BHT), and to evaluate the human DR in a mammalian perspective. A model for simulated diving by apnea and facial immersion in cold water was developed. READ MORE
