  1. 1. Nitrogen Cycling at Cold Climate Mine Sites in Northen Sweden

    Author : Lino Nilsson; Anders Widerlund; Anders Lundqvist; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nitrogen; Mining; Cycling; nutrients; Isotopes; Nitrogen-model; modelling; numerical-modelling; Isotope-tracing; Tracing; Isotope; geochemistry; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : High nitrogen discharge from mining sites has been an environmental issue that has been closely studied in the recent years. The environmental effects of high nitrogen discharge are mainly eutrophication, but can also lead to changed species composition and algae blooms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Responses of peatland vegetation to enhanced nitrogen

    Author : Magdalena Wiedermann; Lars Ericson; Juul Limpens; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Sphagnum; nitrogen; peatlands; soluble amino acids; gradient study; field experiment; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Human alteration of the global nitrogen (N) cycle has had major impacts on naturally N-limited ecosystems worldwide. Peatlands, dominated by peat mosses, Sphagnum species, represent one such sensitive ecosystem. READ MORE

  3. 3. Vegetation changes on Swedish mires : Effects of raised temperature and increased nitrogen and sulphur influx

    Author : Urban Gunnarsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Acidification; growth; long-term studies; mires; nitrogen; species richness; Sphagnum; succession; sulphur; temperature; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Abstract : Since the start of the industrialisation, the deposition of nitrogen and sulphur and the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased. The main objectives of this study were to find how these changes in climate and deposition can change the vegetation of mire ecosystems and the growth of Sphagnumspecies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of nitrogen deposition on the growth, metabolism and activity of ectomycorrhizal fungi

    Author : Magnus Ellström; MEMEG; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nitrogen deposition; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Symbiosis; SOM modification; Carbon starvation; Metabolism; Nitrogen leakage; IR-spectroscopy; Mesh bags; Microarray; Axenic growth; Transcriptomics.;

    Abstract : Elevated nitrogen (N) deposition is an environmental problem that can affect plants and microorganisms, which are vital for the terrestrial N and carbon (C) cycles. This thesis has investigated the response of ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF) to increased N deposition. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Positive Effect of Nitrogen Alloying of Tool Steels Used in Sheet Metal Forming

    Author : Irma Heikkilä; Staffan Jacobson; Sture Hogmark; Pavel Krakhmalev; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : galling; nitrogen; tool steel; sliding contact; metal forming; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot tribomaterial; Engineering Science with specialization in Tribo Materials;

    Abstract : Sheet metal forming processes are mechanical processes, designed to make products from metal sheet without material removal. These processes are applied extensively by the manufacturing industry to produce commodities such as heat exchangers or panels for automotive applications. They are suitable for production in large volumes. READ MORE
