  1. 1. Towards climate optimised riparian buffer zones in boreal forests

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

    Author : Alice Falk; [2022]
    Keywords : Forestry; Biogeochemical hotspots; Carbon dioxide; Methane;

    Abstract : Boreal forests have the potential to mitigate the increased concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere. However, forestry alters the soil biogeochemical processes which can cause an increase in GHG emissions from nearby water bodies, soil and vegetation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Go with the flow - can environmental flows save us? : A study of the flow patterns in Bredforsen and possibilities for the future

    Author : Eric Lundqvist; [2022]
    Keywords : riparian forest; primary forest; production forest; tree diversity; deadwood; canopy cover;

    Abstract : Headwaters and their adjacent riparian forests (RF) have been recognized for years for their tight interlinkage and essential ecological and biogeochemical services. Notwithstanding, headwaters in Sweden have historically been overlooked in forest management, which has led to conifer-dominated RFs with simplified even-age structure. READ MORE
