  1. 1. Modelling regional climate-vegetation interactions in Europe A palaeo perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Gustav Strandberg; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Palaeoclimate; climate model; vegetation; vegetation changes; land-cover; changes; proxy data; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : Studies in paleoclimate are important because they give us knowledge about how the climate system works and puts the current climate change in necessary perspective. By studying (pre)historic periods we increase our knowledge not just about these periods, but also about the processes that are important for climatic variations and changes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vegetation structure and interactions on mires

    University dissertation from Crister Albinsson, Dept of Natural Sciences, Högskolan i Kalmar, Box 905, S-391 29 Kalmar, Sweden

    Author : Crister Albinsson; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soligenous water supply; sloping fen; ordination; niche breadth; Narthecium ossifragum; liverwort; light competition; life strategy; hepatic; environmental gradient; classification; Association analysis; autecology; southern Sweden; Sphagnum; vegetation; Plant ecology; Växtekologi;

    Abstract : The distribution of sloping fens in southern Sweden was mapped, their vegetation sampled and related to the environmental variables recorded. This mire type is distributed further to the east than previously reported, namely around the highest post-glacial limit of the sea level. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling the vegetation of the Earth

    University dissertation from Plant Ecology and Systematics, Lund University

    Author : Alex Haxeltine; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fraction absorbed photosynthetically active radiation; photosynthesis; canopy conductance; plant functional types; leaf area index; net primary production; vegetation distribution; biome; terrestrial biosphere model; biogeography; climate change; Last Glacial Maximum; Plant ecology; Växtekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development and application of an equilibrium terrestrial biosphere model, BIOME3. The model simulates vegetation distribution and biogeochemistry, and couples vegetation distribution directly to biogeochemistry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Breaking the ice effects of ice formation and winter floods on vegetation along streams

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lovisa Lind; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anchor ice; climate change; in-stream; riparian; river ice; streams; vegetation;

    Abstract : Streams in cold regions are characterized by unique hydrological processes that control flow regime and water levels. One of the most important processes is the formation, growth and melting of different types of ice in and around the stream channel during winter. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of vegetation dynamics in the control of atmospheric CO2 content

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Stephen Sitch; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric CO2 content; climate change; plant functional types; terrestrial biosphere model; DGVM; vegetation dynamics; land use; land cover change; Plant ecology; Växtekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis contains a description of the Lund-Potsdam-Jena Dynamic Global Vegetation Model (LPJ-DGVM) and its application to infer the role of vegetation dynamics on atmospheric CO2 content at different time-scales. The model combines vegetation dynamics and biogeochemistry in a modular framework. READ MORE
