  1. 16. Vägsaltets spridningsvägar och dess påverkan på landskapets vegetation

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Rebecka Lundh; [2015]
    Keywords : vägsalt; spridningsvägar; vegetation; miljö; saltstress; salttolerans;

    Abstract : Hundratusentals ton vägsalt, natriumklorid, sprids ut på våra vägar vintertid för att skapa säkra trafikförhållanden. Men vintervägunderhållning och vägsaltsanvändning kan bidra till förstöring av de naturliga och interna processerna i angränsande mark och vegetation. READ MORE

  2. 17. Vegetationens roll i erosiva vattendrag : en review och fältstudie av två nyckelområden i Rönne å

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

    Author : Malin Leth; [2014]
    Keywords : erosion; river bank; tree; root; plant; infiltration; interception;

    Abstract : The vegetation’s impact on erosion control is widely explored, even though research’ results are scattered where it suggests a both positive and negative relationship between roots and erosion tendency. Research has measured the roots’ impact on erosion by many different methods, hence the aim of this study is to offer a clearance of what factors play an important role in the choice of appropriate species controlling river bank erosion.

  3. 18. Blötläggning och aktivering av frön före sådd : ett sätt att förbättra frögroning och konkurrensförmåga

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Biology (from 140101)

    Author : Olle Åkesson; [2014]
    Keywords : blötläggning; frögroning; uppkomst; groningsprocess; konkurrensförmåga; allelopati;

    Abstract : Seed germination is a complex process that starts with water uptake by the seed and ends with radicle growth. Several factors affect the germination where water, temperature and light conditions are the most important. Soaking of seeds before sowing provides faster and more uniform emergence. READ MORE

  4. 19. Priming as a strategy to enhance stress tolerance in plants with focus on the role of Brassinosteroid related genes

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics (until 131231)

    Author : Malin Thoudal; [2012]
    Keywords : Priming; Bacillus amyloliquefaciens ; Arabidopsis thaliana; Brassinosteroids;

    Abstract : It is of interest to gain knowledge of the mechanisms operating behind priming, an important possible strategy to help plants handle stress. The hypothesis is that priming of Arabidopsis thaliana, as a result of colonization of roots using the beneficial bacteria Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, stimulates Brassinosteroid (BR) synthesis in plants leading to plant growth promotion and improved defense responses.

  5. 20. Biotic priming of growth and stress tolerance in cereals

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics (until 131231)

    Author : Martin Palmqvist; [2012]
    Keywords : Biocontrol; crop plant; priming; stress tolerance; wheat; nano material; Bacillus amyloliquefaciens;

    Abstract : Instead of using chemical pesticides for plant protection there is the possibility to activate plants´ innate immunity defense against pests and diseases using bacteria. Many bacteria have been tested for their priming potential while not much research has assessed the priming effect against abiotic stress factors. READ MORE
