  1. 1. European Energy Policy in Transition: Critical Aspects of Emissions Trading

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Markus Wråke; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]

    Sammanfattning : The overarching theme of the thesis is European energy and climate policy, with a particular focus on the role of emissions trading. The thesis consists of eight papers. Paper 1 outlines the origins and characteristics of the European Union’s Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), launched in January 2005. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Land-use competition and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in a climate change mitigation perspective

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :David Bryngelsson; [2015]
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bioenergy; Diets; Livestock; Integrated assessment model; Land use competition; GHG emissions; Partial equilibrium model; Mitigation; Food consumption; Climate change;

    Sammanfattning : Productive land for food production, bioenergy, or preservation of nature is a limited resource. Climate change mitigation puts additional pressure on land via higher demand for bioenergy to replace fossil fuels and via restrictions on deforestation—two processes that limit the availability of land for food produc- tion, and may thus also raise food prices.

  3. 3. Klimat och karaktär : Naturen och människan i sent svenskt 1700-tal

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the influence of the notion of climate in Sweden 1750-1800. The theory of climate played an important role in many contexts in eighteenth century Sweden. In different ways it came to be used in historiography, political economy and, in time, in the study of man in the emerging discipline of anthropology. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mosses as mediators of climate change implications for tree seedling establishment in the tundra

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University

    Författare :Signe Lett; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; arctic; alpine; B. pubescens; bryophytes; competition; facilitation; mosses; P. sylvestris; precipitation changes; seedlings; traits; tree line; warming;

    Sammanfattning : Alpine and arctic tree line expansion depends on the establishment of tree seedlings above the current tree line, which is expected to occur with climate warming. However, tree lines often fail to respond to higher temperatures. Other environmental factors are therefore likely important for tree seedling establishment. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Climate change time machine Adaptation to 30 years of warming in the Baltic Sea

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Friederike Ermold; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; thermal adaptation; evolution; Baltic Sea; Biotest Basin; ecological interactions; biological invasions; phenotypic plasticity; Biologi med inriktning mot populationsbiologi; Biology with specialization in Population Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Earth mean surface temperature has increased by 1 °C since the industrial revolution, and this has already had considerable effects on animal and plant species. Ecological responses to the warming climate – often facilitated via phenotypic plasticity – are ubiquitous. LÄS MER
