  1. 1. Constructing and contesting the legitimacy of private forest governance : The case of forest certification in Sweden

    Författare :Johanna Johansson; Carina Keskitalo; Karin Bäckstrand; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; accountability; corporate social responsibility; eco-labelling; forest certification; forest governance; forest practices; governance; legitimacy; national forest inventory; private governance; Sweden; voluntary standards; statskunskap; political science;

    Sammanfattning : In recent decades, political scientists have devoted substantial attention to the changing role of the state towards more inclusion of non-state actors in policymaking. This deliberative turn, or move towards governance, may signal inability to handle complex problems without cooperation with nonstate actors. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Rooting for forest resilience : Implications of climate and land-use change on the tropical rainforests

    Författare :Chandrakant Singh; Ingo Fetzer; Lan Wang-Erlandsson; Ruud van der Ent; Axel Kleidon; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; forest dynamics; human influence; land-use change; rainforest tipping; remote sensing; resilience; root zone storage capacity; tropical forests; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : Tropical rainforests in the Amazon and Congo River basins and their climate are mutually dependent. Evaporation from these forests help regulate the regional and global water cycle. Furthermore, these rainforests themselves depend on precipitation to sustain their structure and functions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Timber as a forest-risk commodity: embodied socio-ecological impacts in the Brazilian supply chain

    Författare :Caroline Sartorato Silva Franca; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Environmentally-extended input-output model; Land use; Supply chain traceability; Forest frontiers; Sustainable Forest Management SFM ; Forest degradation; Illegal logging;

    Sammanfattning : The continued loss and degradation of forest resources is one of the largest sustainability challenges of our time. The past decades rise in global demand for agricultural and forest commodities have created unparalleled pressure on the natural resources, leading to forest destruction and associated loss in carbon stocks, invaluable biodiversity, ecosystems services, livelihoods.

  4. 4. A window into forest landscapes : Studying the relationship between forests, ownership, ecosystem services, and biodiversity in landscapes

    Författare :Tristan Bakx; BECC: Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Forest; Landscape; Space; Spatial scale; Ownership; Sustainability; Trade-offs; Biodiversity; Conservation; Forestry;

    Sammanfattning : Production forests are faced with the challenge of adapting to environmental change and simultaneously helping mitigate it and host rich biodiversity. This leads to new conflicts and trade-offs for forest management. Many management options have been proposed to achieve these goals while minimizing the loss of timber production. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Direct and indirect pressures of climate change on nutrient and carbon cycling in northern forest ecosystems : Dynamic modelling for policy support

    Författare :Klas Lucander; BECC: Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Forest; boreal ecosystems; Forest biogeochemistry; Forest bioenergy; Boreal coniferous forest; base cations; Biogeochemical cycles; Dynamic Modelling; Carbon cycle; nitrogen cycle; decision support; policy-making; Weathering; Forestry; Land use change;

    Sammanfattning : Northern forest ecosystems play an important role in mitigating climate change by sequestrating carbon (C), while additionally providing and regulating other ecosystem services. A majority of the Swedish environmental quality objects (EQOs) that guide Swedish environmental policy and management are associated with the forest, and they have proven difficult to achieve. LÄS MER
