  1. 1. Reindeer induced changes in vegetation composition and plant traits on a tundra-forest border

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Femke Pijcke; [2019]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; plant functional traits; nutrient allocation; grazing; reindeer; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) are the most common large herbivores in the arctic. With a habitat spreading over the entire circumpolar region, they can have a substantial effect on plant species composition and ecosystem processes and functions. READ MORE

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

    Author : Christine Godeau; [2019]
    Keywords : Artificial dispersal Quartzite quarry; Reindeer lichens; Reindeer winter grazing; Substrate.;

    Abstract : Reindeer lichens are on a dramatic decline in Sweden, with a 71 % decrease in abundance over the last 60 years. Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus L.) management, undertaken by indigenous Sámi people, depend upon extensive winter grazing grounds with abundant reindeer lichen cover. READ MORE

  5. 5. Direct multispectral photogrammetry for UAV-based snow depth measurements

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Kathrin Maier; [2019]
    Keywords : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAV ; snow depth; direct photogrammetry; multispectral imagery; cryosphere;

    Abstract : Due to the changing climate and inherent atypically occurring meteorological events in the Arctic regions, more accurate snow quality predictions are needed in order to support the Sámi reindeer herding communities in northern Sweden that struggle to adapt to the rapidly changing Arctic climate. Spatial snow depth distribution is a crucial parameter not only to assess snow quality but also for multiple environmental research and social land use purposes. READ MORE
