  1. 1. Particle image velocimetry in practice

    Author : Torbjörn Green; Kristian Angele; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Experimental fluid mechanics has for a long time been used to visualize flow phenomenon. An early pioneer was Ludwig Prandtl who used aluminum particles in water flumes to describe the flow in a qualitative manner. In line with the rapid development of Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD, the need for new validation tools has increased. READ MORE

  2. 2. From green to yellow : a leaf story

    Author : Olivier Keech; Per Gardeström; Pierre Dizengremel; Lee Sweetlove; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis thaliana; chloroplasts; cytoskeleton; darkness; metabolism; microscopy; mitochondria; microtubules; senescence; system redox; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : När ett blad gulnar genomgår det både morfologiska och metaboliska förändringar. Denna process benämns senescence och en förbättrad förståelse av dess mekanismer är viktiga både ur ett grundvetenskapligt perspektiv och för potentiella bioteknologiska applikationer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Physiological integration and morphological plasticity in extensive clonal plants

    Author : Tina D'Hertefeldt; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant ecology; Maianthemum; Carex; Clonal plants; tracers; Växtekologi;

    Abstract : Clonal plants show a large variation in physiological integration, i.e. the translocation of resources among ramets within the clone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stress Related Emissions of Norway Spruce Plants

    Author : Marie Pettersson; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Torkel Berglund; Åsa Emmer; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; volatiles; terpenes; green leaf volatiles; stress response; nepetalactone; SPME; Picea abies; Hylobius abietis; Cinara pillicornis; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : The interactions between plants and insects are mediated by volatile molecules. Plants respond to stress by biosynthesis of chemical substances which can deter invading insects or pathogens. Some of these substances are volatile and are emitted to the surroundings and may attract or repel insects. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Browning process : The case of Dar es Salaam city

    Author : Othmar Simtali Mng'ong'o; Lars Orrskog; Kjell Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Social sciences; green plant; green structure; browining process; ecological area; sustainable city; living environment; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The study is about how green spaces and structures of Dar es Salaam city, quantitatively and qualitatively, are browning out. It also tries to explore the different reasons behind the browning tendency, and what it means to the function of the city and to the daily form of life of the inhabitants. READ MORE
