  1. 1. Buskar : användning i offentliga planteringar

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Author : Pernilla Fridberg; [2020]
    Keywords : buskar; artdiversitet; diversitet; artrikedom; gestaltning; offentliga miljöer; succession; beskärning; skötsel; värden; säsongsvariationer; växtkomposition; upplevelsevärden; succession; dynamik; konkurrensstrategi; shrubs; species diversity; biodiversity; design proposal; public environment; succession; pruning; management; values; season variations; plant composition; composition principles; experience value;

    Abstract : Idag används buskar framförallt i monotona samplanteringar där de betraktas som byggda element, synonyma med betong. Succession, dynamik och konkurrensstrategier har haft ingen eller mycket liten del i planeringen av gröna miljöer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Restoration strategies in boreal forests : prescribed burning and gap cutting effects on plant diversity and community composition

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

    Author : Clara Espinosa Del Alba; [2020]
    Keywords : restoration ecology; boreal forest; fire; gap cutting; biodiversity; voluntary set-asides; vascular plants; bryophytes; forest management;

    Abstract : The boreal biome is one of the largest in the world and their forests have been widely exploited for centuries. Consequently, it has suffered ecological simplification and loss of biodiversity. Under these circumstances passive conservation is no longer enough and active restoration techniques need to be tested. READ MORE

  3. 3. Limestone Quarry Restoration - Evaluation plan of restoration methods for Alvar establishment on northern Gotland

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ola Ohlsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Limestone quarry; alvar; restoration; evaluation plan; ANOVA; environmental monitoring; Science General;

    Abstract : Alvars are globally rare habitats with rich and distinctive vegetation-communities. Alvars are found on limestone bedrock which is also subject to quarrying for cement production. The increasing global need for cement results in either expanding existing quarries or the opening of new ones. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of cold treatment on Arabidopsis thaliana : a study in the change of gene expression levels in some selected COR-genes and composition of important cell membrane lipids of A. thaliana

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

    Author : Artur Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Arabidopsis thaliana; cold stress; membrane lipids; gene expression; quantification; PCR; extraction;

    Abstract : The effect of cold stress in Arabidopsis thaliana, mouse cress, was examined. The object was to investigate how gene expression and membrane lipid configuration was affected in seedlings when being treated with low temperature. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Near Infrared Spectroscopy Model for Prediction of Fibre Compounds in Alfalfa

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Christina Andersen; [2020]
    Keywords : alfalfa; lucerne; medicago sativa; green protein powder; NIR; near infrared spectroscopy; model development; matlab; PLS; partial least squares; PCA; principal component analysis; SNV; standard normal variate; fibre prediction; TDF; total dietary fibre; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Background: This project investigates if it is possible to develop a calibration model from near infrared (NIR) spectroscopic measurements, for determination of the amount and type of fibre fractions within protein powder produced from the legume alfalfa, without performing wet experiments. Alfalfa is also known as Medicago sativa and lucerne, but is in this project further referred to as alfalfa. READ MORE
