  1. 1. Location decisions regarding forest plantations in Brazil : Which aspects are important to actors in the Brazilian tree industry?

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Katarina Nilsson Lannerstedt; [2020]
    Keywords : Eucalyptus; sustainable development; land use; decision-making; policy; legislation; independent forest certification; economic sustainability; environmental sustainability; social sustainability;

    Abstract : Brazilian productive forest plantations and sustainability is a continuous subject of debate, since such forest plantations constitute an increasing proportion of the Brazilian forest cover, and because of documented instances where some establishments have resulted in negative impacts on local ecosystems and communities. Meanwhile, balancing economic, environmental and social sustainability is becoming an important concern in industrial decision-making given the increasing importance of the global sustainability goals.

  2. 2. Studies of the Impregnation Stagein Kraft Pulping of Hardwood

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Jonas Garemark; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In kraft pulping, one of the main issues is the extensive wood losses. With increasing prices ofwoody biomass an incentive towards minimizing the wood losses exists. Amongst the variousprocess steps, the impregnation of wood chips has shown to enhance the cooking by providinga homogeneous distribution of chemicals inside the chips. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ecological and Edaphic Correlations of Soil Invertebrate Community Structure in Dry Upland Forests of Eastern Africa

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Karl Mauritsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Natural forests; plantation forests; Brachylaena-Croton forest; Cupressus lusitanica; Eucalyptus paniculata; exotic species; biodiversity; soil invertebrates; Berlese-Tullgren funnel; vertical structure; vegetation cover; vegetation density; litter quality; edaphic factors; soil pH; soil temperature; soil moisture; ANOVA; Multiple Linear Regression; Akaike’s Information Criterion;

    Abstract : Natural forests are characterised by great vegetation diversity and create habitats for a major part of Earth’s terrestrial organisms. Plantation forests, which are mainly composed of a few genera of fast-growing trees, constitute an increasing fraction of global forests, but they only partly compensate for loss of area, habitat and ecological functions in natural forests.

  4. 4. What are trees for : an ethnographic study of local firewood practices in Uganda in the context of deforestation and climate change discourses

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Filippa Giertta; [2016]
    Keywords : firewood; deforestation; climate change; carbon forestry; CDM; Kachung;

    Abstract : Interventions and schemes are being introduced all over the world to stop deforestation and reduce climate change. These interventions, on all levels of scale, follow a dominant global discourse based on a human-environment dichotomy and neo-Malthusian logic, and are driven by narratives of degradation by the local population and linear environmental change.

  5. 5. Performance of tree stem isolation algorithms for terrestrial laser scanning point clouds

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Tiago De Conto; [2016]
    Keywords : LiDAR; cylinder circle fit; taper; tropical and boreal tree species; robust estimation;

    Abstract : LiDAR sensors present increasing popularity in the Forestry sector, due to its capability of acquiring high resolution three dimensional data of the forest, useful to a variety of applications. Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) consists of a way to collect large amounts of forest data at the plot level, making further 3D modelling and tree reconstruction possible, thus allowing foresters to extract dendrometric variables with high accuracy from those point clouds.
