  1. 1. The effect of ecological forest restoration on bumblebees (Bombus spp.) in the boreal forest

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

    Author : Raisja Spijker; [2018]
    Keywords : bumblebee; Bombus spp.; forest restoration; abundance; species richness; species composition; boreal forest;

    Abstract : Insect pollinators are an important part of biodiversity, yet the number of pollinating insects is declining all over the world. Of all the wild plant species about 80% are reliant on insect pollinators, with bees being most important. One of the main causes behind the decline of insect pollinators is the loss and fragmentation of habitats. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resource distribution in disturbed landscapes – the effect of clearcutting on berry abundance and their use by brown bears

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

    Author : Matej Domevscik; [2018]
    Keywords : bilberry; lingonberry; forest management; ursus arctos; Vaccinium myrtillus; Vaccinium vitis-idaea; resource selection functions; modeling landscape use;

    Abstract : To survive winter hibernation, brown bears (Ursus arctos) need to store excess energy during late summer and autumn. Scandinavian brown bears usually have an abundance of berries to feed on, but their distribution varies depending on forest structure and age. READ MORE

  3. 3. Overstory dynamics as an indicator of ecosystem services from the understory vegetation in coniferous forests in Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Daniel Boczniewicz; [2017]
    Keywords : berry production; biodiversity; ecosystem services; game potential; overstory vegetation dynamics; Picea abies; Pinus sylvestris; understory vegetation; Vaccinium myrtillus; Vaccinium vitis-idaea;

    Abstract : Understory vegetation is a wide and diverse part of the forest environment, which provides a lot of information about the forest, its condition and ecosystem services. Understory vegetation is affected and moulded by the species composition and density of the overstory, which changes growth conditions and productivity in the lower layers during the whole rotation period.

  4. 4. A comparison of protein complexation capacity among six boreal species and the consequences for nitrogen mineralization

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

    Author : Jennie Sverker; [2009]
    Keywords : protein complexation capacity; nitrogen cycle; fire chronosequence; succession; boreal species; boreal ecology; nitrogen mineralization; competition;

    Abstract : Nitrogen (N) is considered to be the most limiting nutrient for productivity in boreal forests, and the ability of plants to complex protein during decomposition is considered to be an important mechanism by which some plants regulate the N cycle. In this study I investigated whether six boreal plant species differed in their ability to complex proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Viltets inverkan på vegetationsutvecklingen i en sydsvensk skogsföryngring

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Elias Turesson; [2006]
    Keywords : viltbetestryck; vegetationsutveckling; Sydsverige; skogsföryngring;

    Abstract : Herbivore impact on the Swedish forest has under a long time been a common subject of debate. There are many different opinions depending on what direction the forest owner has with his/her forest. Populations of moose and roe deer have increased significantly in Sweden during the last decades. READ MORE
