  1. 1. Can hunter’s local ecological knowledge be used in management of multi-ungulate systems? : a combination of local ecological knowledge and scientific knowledge to add a finer resolution to current management strategies

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

    Author : Sandra Pettersson; [2021]
    Keywords : local ecological knowledge; LEK; scientific knowledge; SK; wildlife management; ungulate management; multi-ungulate systems;

    Abstract : Management and conservation of wildlife populations are generally based on scientific knowledge (SK) and monitoring to establish reliable information. The information gathered and presented from SK is interpreted by individuals who can have different ways of interpreting the same type of information. READ MORE

  2. 2. Using Sentinel-2 Satellite Images to Estimate Traits of Forage Grasslands

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden

    Author : Niklas Zeiner; [2021]
    Keywords : Remote sensing; Forage grasslands; Sentinel-2; Dry matter yield; Canopy average height; Total leaf chlorophyll content; Partial least squares; Support vector machines;

    Abstract : In this project, regression models based on data from field measurements and spectral information extracted from satellite imagery were used to estimate traits of forage grasslands; dry matter yield, canopy average height and total leaf chlorophyll. Four fields at SLUs Röbäcksdalen field station were sampled on 22 occasions and a total of 198 samples, including measurement of the highest plant, canopy height, leaf chlorophyll content, canopy spectral reflectance and biomass were collected.

  3. 3. The influence of antimicrobial agents on the development of antibiotic resistance in the vaginal bacterial flora of artificially inseminated mares : a study on mares in a stud environment

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Elin Wilén; [2021]
    Keywords : antibiotics; antimicrobial resistance; bacteriology; breeding; equine reproduction; reproductive techniques; semen extender; stud farm;

    Abstract : In Sweden and in many other countries, artificial insemination (AI) is frequently used in horse breeding. The technology makes it possible to use genetic material from horses in different geographical locations in an effective way, minimizing the risk of infection or even injury to both horses and stud personnel.

  4. 4. Vicia faba determinate and indeterminate inflorescence genotypes : comparison of genetic variation at TFL1 locus

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Jenny Östberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Faba bean; growth habit; TERMINAL FLOWER1; genetic marker; legume; mutant;

    Abstract : Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) plants usually express an indeterminate inflorescence growth habit regulated by the gene TERMINAL FLOWER1 (TFL1) which allows the apical meristem to continuously produce new vegetative and reproductive plant parts. In turn, this prolongs the growth and flowering period and causes an uneven ripening of the pods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Textural characterization of gold in the Björkdal gold deposit, northern Sweden.

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geovetenskap och miljöteknik

    Author : Fredrik Westberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Björkdal gold deposit; gold; gold-telluride; SEM; mineral association; grain size; geometallurgy;

    Abstract : The Björkdal gold deposit is located in the eastern part of the Skellefte district, northern Sweden. Twenty thin sections from four production areas in the open pit and four drifts from the underground mine were analysed for mineral association and grain size distribution of gold. READ MORE
