1. Candidate genes for resistance and susceptibility to the bird cherry-oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi L.) in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Sammanfattning : Bird cherry-oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi L.) is an important pest on spring-sown cereals. The aphid reduces yield and can act as a vector of barley yellow dwarf virus. R. LÄS MER
2. Sustainable Land and Water Management for a Greener Future : Large-scale insights in support of Agroecological Intensification
Sammanfattning : The challenge of producing more food in times of climate change, degraded land and scares water resources is calling for a radical transformation of agriculture. Sustainable agricultural intensification is the process of increasing the productivity of farms while preserving functional ecosystems. LÄS MER
3. Lipids in seeds of oat (Avena spp.), a potential oil crop : content, quality, metabolism, and possibilities for improvement
Sammanfattning : New oil crops with high yield and oil content are urgently needed. Oat is the only cereal that accumulates substantial amount of lipids in the endosperm. This gives it potential as an oil crop, which could address both nutritional and environmental concerns of modern society. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A growing world population and dwindling fossil oil reserves demand an increase in the world plant oil production. The possibility to increase the area of cultivated land is limited due to the shortage of arable land. Also, the possibility for increasing the oil content in the limited number of cultivated oil crops is restricted. LÄS MER
5. Metabolic engineering for production of complex lipids in tobacco (Nicotiana benthamiana) leaves and rice (Oryza sativa) endosperm
Sammanfattning : World chemical and energy supplies for industry are today highly dependent on unsustainable fossil reserves. Vegetable lipids with similar chemical structures to fossil oil could be the ultimate renewable solution to replace fossil oil and provide environmentally friendly feedstocks and energy resources.
