  1. 1. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

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

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Abstract : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

  2. 2. Values of quality in ‘natural’ wine production : the study of ‘natural’ wine in Germany

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Maximilian Hågård Brown; [2021]
    Keywords : ‘natural’ Wine; alternative; conventions; quality; food; agriculture; sustainability; organic; biodynamic;

    Abstract : The current food production system based on a globalized network of economic efficiency and productivity relies on resource intensive production methods that are often environmentally destructive and unsustainable. Therefore, a growing body of research seeks to understand how different alternative food networks (AFNs) are potentially shaping new approaches to agriculture and our relationship to food in order to combat the current environmental crisis.

    Abstract : Scientists warn that the current rate of climate change will raise average global temperature by 4°C compared to 1990, although warming of +2°C will already have dire effects throughout the world. Therefore, the UN acknowledges SDG 13 (Climate Action) as one of the most important goals for the coming decade in order to fight climate change. READ MORE

  4. 4. The hydrodynamic impacts of Estuarine Oyster reefs, and the application of drone technology to this study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Oskar Evert Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Oyster Reef; Drone; UAV; Hydrodynamics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The impacts of climate change are being seen within the estuarine environment through erosion and shoreline retreat, associated with sea-level rise and changes in storm activity. Restoration oyster reefs have been identified as a working-with-nature strategy to protect and restore these shoreline environments, stabilising sediment, and reducing erosion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Urbanization and economic freedom - are they threats to air quality? : Evidence from a panel study of low and lower-middle-income countries
