  1. 1. Effects of climate change on boreal wetland and riparian vegetation

    Author : Lotta Ström; Roland Jansson; Christer Nilsson; Sarah Gergel; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biomass; flooding; hydrologic niche; invasibility; riparian zone; riparian plant species; river margin; climate scenario; seed sowing experiment; species composition; species richness; transplant experiment; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestrisk ekologi;

    Abstract : Models of climate change predict that temperature will increase during the 21th century and the largest warming will take place at high northern latitudes. In addition to warming, predictions for northern Europe include increased annual precipitation and a higher proportion of the precipitation during winter falling as rain instead of snow. READ MORE

  2. 2. The function of seasonal habitat shifts in two congeneric mayflies in a boreal river

    Author : Olle Söderström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; Habitat utilization; diel activity; orientation; predation; life-history; temperature; food quality; mayflies; Parameletus chelifer; Parameletus minor;

    Abstract : Unregulated North Swedish rivers show large seasonal variations in their physical characteristics. During winter the whole littoral zone freezes solid, and in spring the water flow increases rapidly and the same areas become flooded. The two mayflies Parameletus chelifer and P. minor are common in the North Swedish river Vindelälven. READ MORE

  3. 3. Finding a place for green politics : political space-time, globalisation and new environmental policy concepts

    Author : Lovisa Hagberg; Katarina Eckerberg; James Meadowcroft; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Political science; space-time; political time; bioregionalism; green political theory; place; river basin management; critical loads; ‘think global; act local’; globalisation; Statsvetenskap; Political science; Statsvetenskap; statskunskap; political science;

    Abstract : The overarching aim of this dissertation is to rethink green ideas for change in political space-time against the background of globalisation. It is based on two avenues of investigation. First, green ideas are contrasted with the analyses of current changes in political space-time found in the globalisation literature. READ MORE

  4. 4. Eurasian Arctic Tectonics: Geology of Severnaya Zemlya (North Kara Terrane) and Relationships to the Timanide Margin of Baltica

    Author : Henning Lorenz; David G. Gee; Robert Scott; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Arctic; Severnaya Zemlya; North Kara Terrane; Baltica; bedrock; geology; tectonics; Timanides; Caledonides; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : The North Kara Terrane (NKT), with Severnaya Zemlya as its main outcrop area, constitutes the Palaeozoic and older rocks of the northern part of the Kara Shelf. Potential field data suggest a continuation into the eastern Barents Shelf. READ MORE

  5. 5. Palaeoglaciology of the northeastern Tibetan Plateau

    Author : Jakob Heyman; Arjen P Stroeven; Clas Hättestrand; Helena Alexanderson; Frank Lehmkuhl; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : This study concerns the palaeoglaciation of the northeastern Tibetan Plateau, with emphasis on the Bayan Har Shan (Shan = Mountain) in the headwaters of Huang He (Yellow River). To reconstruct past glacier development multiple techniques, including remote sensing, field investigations, cosmogenic exposure dating, and numerical modelling have been employed. READ MORE
