  3. 3. Acclimation of plants to combinations of abiotic factors : connecting the lab to the field

    Author : Zsofia Réka Stangl; Vaughan Hurry; Lisa Ainsworth; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nitrogen; carbon dioxide; temperature; thermal acclimation; mycorrhiza; boreal forest; climate change; C:N balance; allocation; respiration; photosynthesis; terrestrial biosphere model;

    Abstract : Increasing atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gasses coupled to the accelerated rate of global warming puts plants and ecosystems under the strain of a rapidly changing abiotic environment. Understanding the impacts of changing global climate is a strong focus of plant science and the establishment of more resilient crop variants is an important goal for breeding programs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Understanding the Clean Development Mechanism and its dual aims : the case of China's projects

    Author : Qie Sun; Ronald Wennersten; Nils Brandt; Magnus Enell; KTH; []

  5. 5. The Competition for Forest Raw Materials in the Presence of Increased Bioenergy Demand : Partial Equilibrium Analysis of the Swedish Case

    Author : Elina Bryngemark; Patrik Söderholm; Anne Toppinen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; bioenergy; biodiversity; partial equilibrium model; forest raw materials; market competition; Sweden; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Growing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions have implied an increased attention to the development of renewable energy sources. Bioenergy from forest biomass is expected to be one of the cornerstones in reaching renewable energy targets, especially in forest-rich countries such as Sweden. READ MORE
