  1. 21. Evaluation of GM trees expressing a fungal enzyme : investigating the effects of the fungal enzyme on activation of jasmonate signaling using JAZ10:GUS reporter lines of Arabidopsis

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology

    Author : Elin Bäckström; Therese Thalin; [2019]
    Keywords : cell wall formation; cell wall composition; genetic modification; genetic improvement; ; GUS;

    Abstract : The fungi enzyme glucuronoyl esterase can be used to change the cell wall composition in plants for easier extraction of cellulosic biomass compounds for the production of biomaterials and biofuels. However, previous studies have shown that expression of glucuronoyl esterase in plants causes stress response, mediated by jasmonate signaling, and growth penalty. READ MORE

  2. 22. PLANT MIGRATION AT THE END OF THE WEICHSELIAN GLACIATION : Macrofossil evidence of early coniferous trees at two northern Swedish sites

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

    Author : Karan Zakrzewski-Sharma; [2019]
    Keywords : Scandinavia; Weichselian; plant migration; macrofossils; climate change;

    Abstract : Studies of vegetation history bring a new incentive to our understanding of plant survival and migration in arctic environments. For decades, environmental research was based on palynological data and these studies created a notion that tree species such as larch (Larix sibirica) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) did not grow in northern Scandinavia at the end of Weichselian glaciation.

  3. 23. Ulf Nordfjell och Ulla Molin : en jämförande studie mellan Nordfjell och Molin: Deras vision och trädgårdar

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

    Author : Emelie Svantesson; [2019]
    Keywords : Molin; Nordfjell; trädgård; arkitektur; trädgårdsgestaltning; trädgårdsdesign;

    Abstract : Ulf Nordfjell och Ulla Molin är två framstående arkitekter inom landskap och trädgård. De båda har gestaltat mindre trädgårdar, som är det arbetet fokuserar på. Nordfjells vision inom trädgårdsdesign har i stora drag handlat om att anpassa växtval och design efter platsens förutsättningar och klimat. READ MORE

  4. 24. Seasonal community dynamics of macroinvertebrates in an Arctic stream

    University essay from

    Author : Ellinor Jakobsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Macroinvertebrates; Arctic; seasonality; community composition; Abisko;

    Abstract : Arctic ecosystems are amongst the most vulnerable on Earth to ongoing climate change. While the responses to these changes are well studied on land, less is known about how aquatic communities may respond to a warmer arctic. READ MORE

  5. 25. Phenolic compounds in Fagopyrum sp. grains (buckwheat) : profile, bioactivity and effect of processing

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Agnes Wahlsten; [2019]
    Keywords : Buckwheat; Fagopyrum esculentum; Fagopyrum tartari- cum; rutin; quercetin; total phenolic content; gluten-free; functional foods; antioxidants;

    Abstract : This study aimed to investigate the health benefits related to chemical com-pounds found in buckwheat cultivars. Factors influencing the presence of bioactive compounds with assumed health effects were examined. Two spe-cies of buckwheat, Fagopyrum esculentum (common buckwheat) and Fag-opyrum Tartaricum (tartary buckwheat) were evaluated. READ MORE
