  1. 1. Forest structure of Dalby Söderskog National Park : patterns of carbon storage in living and dead trees

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Kumetra Achuthan; [2021]
    Keywords : ash dieback disease; deadwood; Dutch elm disease; living tree volume; coarse woody debris; carbon stock and storage; pest invasions; temperate mixed broadleaved forest;

    Abstract : Carbon sequestration and storage is an ecosystem service supplied by forests, and is of increasing importance in the context of mitigation of global climate change. Forest pest invasions, driven primarily by globalizations, represent a risk to the efficiency of carbon sequestration as they may greatly reduce the amount of the living biomass in forests.

  2. 2. Amount and distribution of coarse woody debris in Dalby Söderskog national park

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Balaji Naik Sugali; [2021]
    Keywords : Ash dieback; coarse woody debris; dead wood volume; Dutch elm disease; forest reserve; Sweden; temperate forest; tree log; tree snag;

    Abstract : Coarse Woody Debris (CWD) is a critical structural and functional component of all forest ecosystems and comprises non-living woody biomass, standing or lying, larger than 10 cm in diameter. This study provides the first inventory of coarse woody debris in the temperate broadleaf forest of Dalby Söderskog national park in southern Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Community structure of polyporous fungi after wildfire in boreal forest

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

    Author : Isak Vahlström; [2019]
    Keywords : biodiversity; community composition; natural disturbance; forest fire; polyporous fungi; ; wood-decaying fungi;

    Abstract : Wildfire is a natural disturbance that creates large amounts dead wood and contribute to a landscape of different successional stages, important for biodiversity. The number of wildfires have declined in boreal Fennoscandia due to effective fire suppression. READ MORE

  4. 4. Total carbon sequestration during an entire rotation period of oil palm in northern Borneo

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

    Author : Josefin Runesson; [2019]
    Keywords : oil palm; carbon balance; carbon sequestration; land use change; soil carbon; carbon credits;

    Abstract : Considerable amounts of carbon (C) has been lost from tropical forests as a result of continuous conversion of tropical forests into oil palm plantations. Therefore, a better understanding of the C budget and potential sequestration rate in oil palm plantations and how it compares to natural forests is needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Above- and belowground carbon stocks and effects of enrichment planting in a tropical secondary lowland dipterocarp rainforest

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

    Author : Joel Jensen; [2019]
    Keywords : Restoration; tree diversity; biodiversity; soil edaphic factors; functional species groups; liberation; forest degradation;

    Abstract : The intact tropical rainforests are rapidly being degraded and subsequently converted to other land uses, with associated greenhouse gas emissions and loss of biodiversity. It is imperative that the effects of such conversions and large-scale restoration efforts on forest structure and ecosystem services are understood to effectively be able to counteract the negative consequences of deforestation and forest degradation.
