  1. 1. Herbivores influence nutrient cycling and plant nutrient uptake insights from tundra ecosystems

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Hélène Barthelemy; Olofsson Johan; Ellen Dorrepaal; Ann Milbau; Gough Laura; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reindeer grazing; large herbivores; nutrient cycling; plant nutrient uptake; soil nutrient availability; arctic plant ecology; soil microbial communities; 15N stable isotopes; plant-soil interactions; plant quality; dung and urine.; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap; biology; biologi;

    Abstract : Reindeer appear to have strong positive effects on plant productivity and nutrient cycling in strongly nutrient-limited ecosystems. While the direct effects of grazing on vegetation composition have been intensively studied, much less is known about the indirect effect of grazing on plant-soil interactions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipids in seeds of oat (Avena spp.), a potential oil crop : content, quality, metabolism, and possibilities for improvement

    University dissertation from ; Department of Plant Breeding, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Svetlana Leonova; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : New oil crops with high yield and oil content are urgently needed. Oat is the only cereal that accumulates substantial amount of lipids in the endosperm. This gives it potential as an oil crop, which could address both nutritional and environmental concerns of modern society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Information Flow and Product Quality in Human Based Assembly

    University dissertation from Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Loughborough University

    Author : Gunnar Bäckstrand; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; attention; information system; human factors; manual assembly; quality; productivity; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : Information is an important part of the manual assembly process. Information provides the user with the means to fulfil assembly tasks so that the right quality as well as high productivity are accomplished. READ MORE

  4. 4. PLANT-BACTERIAL AND PLANT-FUNGAL COMPETITION FOR NITROGEN AND PHOSPHORUS

    University dissertation from Katarina Månsson, Department of Ecology (Plant Ecology and Systematics), Ecology Building, Lund University, 223 62 Lund

    Author : Katarina Månsson; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; Amino acid; 15N; Soil C:N ratio; Plant ecology; Soil drying-rewetting;

    Abstract : Competition between and within species has been one of the most studied concepts in ecology. In this thesis the aim was to test the idea of plant-microbial competition for N and, by studying this interaction, to gain a better understanding of different N processes in soil. READ MORE

  5. 5. Intramolecular isotope analysis reveals plant ecophysiological signals covering multiple timescales

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Thomas Wieloch; Jürgen Schleucher; Mats Nilsson; Gerd Gleixner; Lisa Wingate; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NMR spectroscopy; tree ring; isotope ratio; isotope effect; intramolecular 13C 12C signal; carbon allocation; acclimation; plant performance; climate reconstruction; plant ecophysiology;

    Abstract : Our societies' wellbeing relies on stable and healthy environments. However, our current lifestyles, growth-oriented economic policies and the population explosion are leading to potentially catastrophic degradation of ecosystems and progressive disruption of food chains. READ MORE
