  2. 2. Effects of 100 years of drainage on peat properties in a drained peatland forests in northern Sweden

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

    Author : Mikaela Casselgård; [2020]
    Keywords : ash content; biodiversity; bulk density; carbon; climate; compaction; ditch; drainage; greenhouse gas emissions; groundwater level; isotopes; nitrogen; peatland; restoration;

    Abstract : Natural peatlands provide a small but persistent long-term carbon (C) sink. However, within the last century their extent in Sweden has declined by about 1.5-2.0 million hectares due to drainage activities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nocturnal moths use of novel habitats : a case study on a power line in a forest-mire mosaic in boreal Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Oskar Lövbom; [2020]
    Keywords : pollinators; Lepidoptera; moth; transmission line; assemblage structure; Noctuoidea; Geometridae;

    Abstract : Biodiversity and pollinators are declining all over the world, and a factor thought to cause this decline is destruction of natural habitats. One new way that has been discussed in an effort to try to mitigate the effects of declining habitats is to understand and use novel habitats, which are habitats created when, for example, building roads, railways, and power lines.

  4. 4. The potential disturbance of the 210Pb profile in peat cores by roots and the implications for 210Pb dating.

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Nora Spjut; [2020]
    Keywords : Permafrost thaw; 210Pb dating; and Dwarf shrub roots;

    Abstract : At this moment there is a gap in information regarding the affect roots might have on 210Pb distribution in peat cores and in turn the obtained chronologies by 210Pb dating. Therefore, four peat cores were collected from the snow manipulation study site within the mire complex Storflaket (68°20048″N, 18°58016″E). READ MORE

  5. 5. Automatic Detection of Low Passability Terrain Features in the Scandinavian Mountains
