    Abstract : Boreal forest is the world’s largest terrestrial biome. Being one of the most ubiquitous and coldtolerant tree species in Sweden, the mountain birch forms a unique deciduous treeline and marks the forest-tundra ecotone. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bioeconomy Strategy effects in Rural Areas : A comparative study of the Alpine region and Inner Scandinavia

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : John Sudmeier; [2023]
    Keywords : bioeconomy; sustainability; agri-food; forestry; ecological farming; EU policy; heritage sensitive marketing;

    Abstract : The European Commission Bioeconomy Strategy aims to stimulate an ecologically sustainable economy to mitigate climate change, declining biodiversity, and as an economic and social strategy meant to provide jobs and stimulate growth. The aim of this research project is to understand how the European Commission Bioeconomy Strategy is being interpreted and implemented in two different rural European regions, Inner Scandinavia, and the Alpine region, and based on those findings discuss how a sustainable bioeconomy strategy can be understood primarily in relation to the ecological sustainability goals of decarbonizing the economy and protecting biodiversity.

  5. 5. Changes in July albedo and its relationship with EVI over the last two decades in the Swedish alpine region

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Vera Grönvik Hende; [2023]
    Keywords : Shortwave albedo; Enhanced Vegetation Index EVI ; Alpine vegetation; Scandes; Surface albedo feedback; MODIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Vegetation in the subarctic is expected to respond to climate warming as its growth becomes less temperature limited. This has previously been recorded in the form of treeline advances and increasing shrub cover. Changes in vegetation cover may accelerate warming due to a decrease in summer albedo, in what is termed surface albedo feedback. READ MORE
