  1. 1. Nutrient balance and salinity stress in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

    Author : Edith Hammer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inoculum; Glomalin; Fatty acids; Osmolyte; Organic matter; K; Na; Salinity; Symbiotic exchange; Phosphorus P; Carbon C; PIXE; Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi; Rhizobium;

    Abstract : Earth’s primary production depends to a considerable extent on the mycorrhizal symbiosis, since mycorrhizal fungi supply their host plant with important mineral nutrients. I examined the influence of different nutrient regimes on the fungal partner in the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Soil salinity as a driver of microbial community structure and functioning

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Centre for Environmental and Climate Research (CEC)

    Author : Kristin Rath; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-12]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soil salinization; Soil Microbiology; soil microbial community; Bacteria; Aerobic; Fungi; Drying-rewetting; Microbial growth; Microbial biomass; Soil respiration; salinity tolerance; Saline soils; Salinity gradient;

    Abstract : Soil salinization is a pressing agricultural problem in many areas of the world, particularly in areas heavily reliant on irrigation agriculture. While the negative effects of salinity on crop plants have been widely studied, its effects on soil microorganisms have received less attention, and the impact of soil salinity on both microbial community structure and functioning is not well understood.

  3. 3. Soil Salinity and Crop Yield at El-Salam Canal Area, Egypt

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Centre for Environmental and Climate Research (CEC)

    Author : Yasser Hamed Abd El Mageed; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; El-Salam Canal; Egypt; Salinity; Crop yield; Arid;

    Abstract : Soil salinity and solute movements through the soil are considered the most important challenge facing agriculture in Arid and Semiarid regions (e.g., Egypt). READ MORE

  4. 4. Macroalgae in the Baltic Sea responses to low salinity and nutrient enrichment in Ceramium and Fucus

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi och geovetenskap

    Author : Lena Bergström; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; adaptation; asexual reproduction; Baltic Sea; Gulf of Bothnia; salinity; macroalgae; nutrients; sexual reproduction; stress; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Abstract : The brackish Baltic Sea is a marginal environment for both marine and freshwater species. The rate of ecological differentiation is presumably high due to strong selection pressure from a gradient of decreasing salinity that has been present in its current state for only about 3 000 years.

  5. 5. Physiological responses of marine and brackish Fucus vesiculosus L. with respect to salinity

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Maria Gylle; Mittuniversitetet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acclimation; Bothnian Sea; compatible solutes; desiccation; fluorescence; F. vesiculosus; F. radicans; immunoblot; mannitol; photosynthesis; Rubisco; salinity; Algfysiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : The intertidal brown alga Fucus vesiculosus L. is mainly a marine species (34 practical salinity units, psu), but the alga also grows in the sublittoral of the brackish Bothnian Sea (part of the Baltic Sea; 5 psu). READ MORE
