  1. 1. Sediment transport in small streams is related to riparian buffer width : a comparison between wide and narrow riparian buffers

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Rasmus Staaf; [2022]
    Keywords : Riparian Zone; Protective Zone; Headwater Stream; Forestry; Clear – cut Harvest; Organic Sediment; Inorganic Sediment; Near Stream Logging;

    Abstract : This study aims to provide information about how different widths of riparian buffers affect the quantity and quality of sediments transported in a small stream after a clear – cut harvest. Small streams have critical influences on downstream rivers and excessive transported sediments can have large negative effects on the aquatic system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Drivers of decomposition across Sphagnum bog margins

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för miljö- och livsvetenskaper (from 2013)

    Author : Emil Nordström; [2022]
    Keywords : Peatlands; tea bag index; edge effects; carbon storage; carbon sequestration; waterlogging; Torvmark; kanteffekter; kollagring; koldioxidbindning;

    Abstract : Peatlands provide multiple ecosystem services, including extensive carbon sequestration and storage, yet many peatlands have been degraded or destroyed. Peatlands carbon storage capacity is connected to inherently low decomposition rates, causing the build-up of organic matter.

  3. 3. Riparian buffer zones in agricultural landscapes : Their status today and their future as an ecological tool in Sweden

    University essay from Karlstads universitet

    Author : Mikaela Ignatiou Hadjicharalambous; [2021]
    Keywords : Riparian buffer zones; agriculture lanscapes; ecological tool; streams; kantzoner; lantbrukslandskap; ekologisk vertyg; vattendrag;

    Abstract : The application of intensive farming and cultivation practices, resulting in large-scale modification of the hydrology of streams and rivers and of the natural vegetation, has increased the need to find ways to mitigate the negative impact of this habitat degradation. Suitable design and creation of riparian buffer zones in agriculture areas, is by many considered the best remedial measure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Blomsterremsors påverkan på individantalet av marklevande organismgrupper : jämförelse av fallfälleprover tagna från annuella och perenna blomsterremsor

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Lina Karm Togo; [2021]
    Keywords : nyttodjur; diversitet; jordbruk; naturliga fiender; biologisk bekämpning; Samzoner;

    Abstract : Dagens stordriftsjordbruk bidrar till ett alltmer homogent landskap, vilket i sin tur minskar den biologiska mångfalden och de ekosystemtjänster som människor är beroende av. För att motverka förlusten av arter är det viktigt att gynna tillräckligt stora populationer för framtiden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluating abundance of deciduous trees in production forests along small stream : can Sweden meet current policy goals without intensive management

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Jessica Åström; [2020]
    Keywords : Riparian forests; small stream; strategic management objectives; deciduous; forest policy change;

    Abstract : Riparian zones are important for many ecological functions such as for providing shade to streams and leaf litter to instream organisms, as well as acting as filters for sediments and excess nutrients that are released during forestry operations. Riparian areas are also important for preservation of biodiversity. READ MORE
