  1. 1. Nitrous oxide emission from soil : On extrapolation from soil environmental factors

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Kerstin Robertson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; N20 emission; denitrification; soil factors; soil moisture; N03-; NH4 ; regression analysis; PLS analysis; IR remote sensing; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Nitrous oxide(N20) is a natural component of the atmosphere which contributes both to the greenhouse effect and to the destruction of stratospheric ozone. National as well as global inventories indicate thatboth natural and anthropogenic emissions from terrestrial ecosystems constitute a large fraction of the annual loading of N20 on the atmosphere.

  2. 2. Colonisation and PAH degradation by wood-rotting fungi in contaminated soil

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Erik Andersson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; agricultural hydrology; Soil Science; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; PLFA; PAH metabolites; PAH; degradation; contaminated soil; soil; brown-rot fungi; white-rot fungi; Colonisation; fungal growth; Lantbrukshydrologi; marklära; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Bioremediation of soils is considered a low-cost alternative to other remediation techniques. Its ability to remove a number of different pollutants has been demonstrated, relying mainly on the activities of indigenous soil bacteria. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Influence of water conditions on growth and mineral nutrient uptake of native plants on clacareous soil

    University dissertation from Aparna Misra, Department of Ecology, Plant Ecology and Systematics, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Aparna Misra; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agricultural hydrology; Lantbrukshydrologi; marklära; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; wet growing; wet dry cycles; soil solution; soil moisture; pH; nutrient poor soil; mineral nutrients; dry growing; Bicarbonate; calicole; Soil Science;

    Abstract : The studies presented in Papers I to IV illustrate the importance of soil moisture in soil solution chemistry and response of native plants to the changes induced by change in moisture regime. With the help of glasshouse experiments I tried to study the influence of different treatments of soil moisture conditions on the mineral uptake by native plants of calcareous soil. READ MORE
