  1. 1. Disentangling Lecania

    Författare :Rikke Reese Næsborg; Leif Tibell; Stefan Ekman; Bengt Oxelman; Christian Printzen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Biology; Crustose lichens; Phylogeny; Taxonomy; Morphology; New species; Phylogenetic diversity; Rare species; ITS; mt-SSU; RPB2; IGS; Biologi; Lecania; Ramalinaceae;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on phylogenetic, taxonomic, ecological, and conservation aspects of the crustose lichen genus Lecania (Ramalinaceae, lichenized Ascomycota). Lecania has previously been defined on basis of relatively few morphological characters, and the genus had never been treated in molecular phylogenies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biodiversity in fragmented boreal forests : assessing the past, the present and the future

    Författare :Håkan Berglund; Bengt Gunnar Jonsson; Jari Kouki; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; bryophytes; CWD; edge effects; fragmentation; fungi; habitat destruction; historical records; indicator; lichens; regression; species-area relationship; value pyramids; woody debris; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis are to (1) analyze the predictability (indicators) of plant and fungal species diversity in old-growth forests, and (2) assess the history and biodiversity of woodland key habitats (WKHs) and their potential to maintain species diversity in fragmented boreal forest landscapes. Predictability was explored in Granlandet nature reserve, an unexploited landscape composed of discrete old-growth Picea forest patches of varying size isolated by wetland, reflecting conditions of insular biota at stochastic equilibrium.

  3. 3. Changes over time in remnant rural vegetation within built-up areas : recreational use, vegetation dynamics and conservation assessment

    Författare :Oskar Forsberg; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation focuses on changes over time within patches of remnant rural vegetation after their inclusion in built-up settings. The dissertation is a compilation of four papers preceded by a summary part. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Boreal vegetation responses to forestry as reflected in field trial and survey data

    Författare :Johan Bergstedt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Logging; boreal forest; selective cutting; scarification; ground-layer flora; survey data;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis had two objectives: the first objective was to evaluate the response of forest ground vegetation to selected forestry operations, i.e. cutting of different intensities and scarification; the second objective was to compare the use of survey data in vegetation research with that of more traditional research using field trials - i.e. LÄS MER
