  1. 16. Comparison between protein yield in different spring-rape varieties : jämförelse av proteinutbyte mellan olika vårrapssorter

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Maja Jonsson; [2019]
    Keywords : rapeseed; spring-rape; protein; protein yield; future food; sustainable food production;

    Abstract : The market for new protein sources for food has never been as popular as it is today. This is partly a response to the increased climate threat. One major contributing factor to the climate impact is food production and the huge waste that comes from both producer and consumer. READ MORE

  2. 17. Shelf life of fresh-cut fruits and salad leaves treated with Pulsed Electric Field (PEF)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Chandan Soni; [2019]
    Keywords : PEF; pulsed electric field; reversible electroporation; calorimeter; metabolic rate; shelf life; fresh commodities; food engineering; livsmedelsteknik; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Application of Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) treatment on five fresh commodities was analysed for the changes in the metabolic and physiological effects on their shelf life. Treatment parameters were optimised in order to achieve uniform electroporation on the samples, which was analysed by Propidium Iodide staining for the leaf samples. READ MORE

  3. 18. The effect of climate on vegetation cover in Swedish mountain regions

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Malin Ekman; [2019]
    Keywords : NILS; SMHI; Vegetation cover; Lichen; Moss; Herbs; Temperature; Climate effect;

    Abstract : Climate change, with a higher temperature, is making the snow covered period shorter in the Swedish mountain region. This represents a threat towards plant species at high altitudes which, due to their sensitivity to temperature changes, will likely lead to a change in plant species composition. READ MORE

  4. 19. Examining the competitive abilities of cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) in a growth chamber experiment.

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Emil Karlsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Centaurea cyanus; Papaver rhoeas; Avena sativa; Cornflower; Growth chamber; Plant competition; Plant ecology; LAI; Root biomass; Root length; Biomass; Dry weight; Interspecific competition; Blåklint; Kärlväxter; Konkurrensförmåga; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Competition between different species (interspecific competition) is an important factor to consider when estimating population trends, geographic distributions, and management options of species. Many historically common vascular plant species found in agricultural environments have been negatively affected by changes in community composition and in turn, changes in competition pressures.

  5. 20. Kaninkött : ett hållbart alternativ?

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Elisabet Henriksson; [2019]
    Keywords : kaninkött; hållbarhet; hälsa; klimat;

    Abstract : Köttkonsumtionen stiger i världen, både i länder som tidigare haft stor köttkonsumtion, och i länder där konsumtionen tidigare varit begränsad av ekonomiska skäl men där befolkningen nu har råd att köpa kött i större utsträckning. Köttkonsumtionen stiger i både absoluta och relativa termer. READ MORE
