  1. 1. Feasibility of Science-based targets in the Wine, Champagne & Spirits sector : A study of five companies’ cases

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Clément Janiere; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The number of companies seeking to match with the Paris agreement to be in line with the best climate science has been skyrocketing. This is particularly crucial for agriculture, forest and other land use sector which represents 25% of anthropogenic emissions. However, nothing yet proves the feasibility of these commitments.

  2. 2. Hur bidrar gröna väggar till mer hållbara urbana miljöer? : möjligheter och utmaningar för gröna väggar

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Biology (from 140101)

    Author : Lukas Farquharson; Max Isaksson; [2022]
    Keywords : Biodiversitet; dagvatten; evapotranspiration; gröna väggar; gröna korridorer; grönområden; gröna fasader; hydroponisk odling; kärlväxter; levande väggar; urbana värmeöar;

    Abstract : Vi har observerat att husfasader i urbana miljöer inte används till mycket annat än att vara just väggar. Det är möjligt att husfasader är en outnyttjad resurs med mycket potential om de används på ett effektivt sätt. READ MORE

  3. 3. The land carbon sink of Lithuanian forests in the light of climate change: A model approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Patricija Marijauskaite; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Physical geography; Ecosystem analysis; Ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; Climate change; Forest sequestration; Land carbon sink; Norway spruce; Scot s pine; Silver birch; monoculture; silviculture; NPP; NBP; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forests form the backbone of the European terrestrial carbon sink (State Forest Service & Ministry of Environment, 2018). As the European Union (EU) strives to become climate neutral by 2050, forests are accounted for the natural carbon absorption mechanism (European Commission, n.d.). READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning future forests for energy, environment and wildlife : Evaluation of forest management scenarios using a forest landscape model in Sweden

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Sigvard Bast; [2022]
    Keywords : Forest landscape model; Biomass succession simulation; Carbon stock change; Habitat indicators; Scenario analysis; Integrated sustainability assessment;

    Abstract : Comparing the future state of natural capital and ecosystem services with quantitative scenarios  is essential in the decision-making process for a sustainable management of forest landscapes. In Sweden, an intensified forest management will likely be necessary to meet future demands of woody biomass as a source of bioenergy and building materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drivers of decomposition across Sphagnum bog margins

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för miljö- och livsvetenskaper (from 2013)

    Author : Emil Nordström; [2022]
    Keywords : Peatlands; tea bag index; edge effects; carbon storage; carbon sequestration; waterlogging; Torvmark; kanteffekter; kollagring; koldioxidbindning;

    Abstract : Peatlands provide multiple ecosystem services, including extensive carbon sequestration and storage, yet many peatlands have been degraded or destroyed. Peatlands carbon storage capacity is connected to inherently low decomposition rates, causing the build-up of organic matter.
