  1. 1. TEACHING PHOTOSYNTHESIS: IMPLICATIONS ON SUSTAINABILITY

    University essay from

    Author : Vasugi V Ribbarp; [2020-10-27]
    Keywords : Photosynthesis; Education for Sustainable Development; Constructivism; Science education; Constructivism; and Science education;

    Abstract : Aim: Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is about empowering and motivatinglearners to become active sustainability citizens who are capable of critical thinking and able to participate in shaping a sustainable future, (UNESCO, 2017). This study centres on how the teaching of photosynthesis in Science can help students understand sustainability issues. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hur grönt är ett stadsträd? : ett stadsträds klimatavtryck ur ett livscykelperspektiv

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

  4. 4. Gene overexpression screens to identify limitations on the productivity of cyanobacteria growth

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

    Author : Tobias Willi; [2020]
    Keywords : Cyanobacteria; Dub-sequencing; competitive growth; overexpression library; Synechocystis 6803; Synechococcus 7002; Synechococcus UTEX 2973; Photobioreactor; Conjugation; mobA;

    Abstract : Cyanobacteria are a model organism for photosynthesis and the Calvin cycle, and a promising chassis for 4th generation biofuel production. There are many ongoing efforts to improve the performance of cyanobacteria, in terms of CO2 fixation and production rate of biofuels. READ MORE

  5. 5. NDVI time series analysis for desert locust outbreak detection and quantification analysis of its impact on vegetation productivity of Sahel

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Evangelos Oikonomopoulos; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Primary Productivity; Desert Locust; NDVI; Time Series Analysis; Outbreak Detection; Food Security; Sahel; Insect Disturbances; GEM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : It has been shown that the semi-arid environment of the Sahelian belt plays an important role in the global carbon uptake as the fluctuation of its primary productivity can be determinant for the global carbon uptake. The insect Schistocerca gregaria commonly known as the desert locust is a disturbance factor that can affect the vegetation productivity for consecutive seasons. READ MORE
