  1. 1. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Abstract : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

    Abstract : Finding a solution to automatically identify tree crowns in has been a well discussed topic in the academic community. Different ideas have been put to practice, with researches mainly targeting coniferous forests. In a global context, papers concerning deciduous trees are rare and their results differ in relation to their respective study zone. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluating abundance of deciduous trees in production forests along small stream : can Sweden meet current policy goals without intensive management

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

    Author : Jessica Åström; [2020]
    Keywords : Riparian forests; small stream; strategic management objectives; deciduous; forest policy change;

    Abstract : Riparian zones are important for many ecological functions such as for providing shade to streams and leaf litter to instream organisms, as well as acting as filters for sediments and excess nutrients that are released during forestry operations. Riparian areas are also important for preservation of biodiversity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prescribed burning in Sweden : an evaluation of structural outcomes from restoration oriented prescribed burns

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Virginia Hermanson; [2020]
    Keywords : prescribed burning; restoration; boreal forest; biodiversity burning; dead wood;

    Abstract : The application of prescribed burning as a conservation measure is a growing trend in Fennoscandia to restore forest landscapes that have been heavily impacted by humans. Both intensive management for forestry and wildfire suppression altered the disturbances shaping boreal forests over the past centuries, which seen today are more homogenous, lacking dead wood and deciduous trees, and are in the successional process towards darker Picea abies (Norway spruce) dominated stands.

  5. 5. Kantzoners påverkan vid bäverförekomst

    University essay from SLU/School for Forest Management

    Author : Daniel Johansson; Sebastian Kjellström; [2020]
    Keywords : Castor fiber; död ved; sjöar;

    Abstract : Bäver har historiskt sett varit en nyckelart för ekosystemet med dess förmåga att skapa naturliga våtmarker. Efter utrotning på 1800-talet blev den återintroducerad i det svenska landskapet år 1920. Inom skogsbruket sparas numera oftast en kantzon intill vattendrag för att främja den naturliga mångfalden.
