  1. 1. Uncovering climate and human signals in near-millennium annual fire chronology for Norrbotten county, Northern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Agnieszka Jabłońska; [2021]
    Keywords : Dendrochronology; forest fire history; climate; human impact; boreal forests;

    Abstract : Forest fire is one of the major factors driving the dynamics of the boreal forest. Climate has the most significant contribution in shaping the fire occurrence, its spatial extent and severity. Anthropogenic activities have contributed to variation in fire activity, although the timing and the scale of the human impact are still heavily debated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thinning response to weather variations in Norway spruce

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Erika Alm; [2019]
    Keywords : thinning; climate change; dendrochronology;

    Abstract : Climate change is likely to affect the prerequisites for forest management. Therefore, it is imperative to investigate how silviculture practices can be adjusted to changing conditions. Norway spruce (Picea abies) is one of the most common species in the Swedish forests, with high economic and ecological values. READ MORE

  3. 3. Skogshistoria kommer upp till ytan : en akvatisk inventering efter samiskt påverkad död ved i tjärnar kring Mattaur-älven

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

    Author : Lina Arnesson Ceder; [2019]
    Keywords : skogshistoria; barktäkter; samer; subfossil; tall; tjärn; Forest history; bark peel; sami; subfossil; pine tree; pond;

    Abstract : I tusentals år har samer levt i norra Fennoskandia och brukat skogen för att värma upp kåtor och låta renar beta av laven som växer på träden och marken. Man har även använt tallens, (Pinus sylvestris L), innerbark som kolhydratkälla och förvaring. Dessa så kallade barktäkter lämnar karakteristiska spår i träden. READ MORE

  4. 4. Influence of climate and mixture effect on radial increment of European beech (Fagus sylvatica) in pure and mixed stands with Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris)

    Author : Jakub Szeptun; [2015]
    Keywords : European beech; Scots pine; radial increment; climate; mixed forest; stands age; dendrochronology; tree ring width;

    Abstract : The main aim of this study was to investigate the trends of radial increment of European Beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) in pure stands and mixed stands with Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.). The study plots were located in Kivik and Tyringe in Skåne which is the southernmost region of Sweden. READ MORE
