  1. 1. Regional Nutrient Budgets in Forest Soils in a Policy Perspective

    Författare :Cecilia Akselsson; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi; geomorphology; Physical geography; Miljökemi; Environmental chemistry; skogsteknik; skogsbruk; Skogsvetenskap; forestry technology; forestry; Silviculture; Näringslära; Nutrition; Växtekologi; policy-making; Plant ecology; regional scale; deposition; eutrophication; carbon sequestration; acidification; Nutrient budget;

    Sammanfattning : Sweden's forests are one of its most important natural resources, as well as being important from ecological and social perspectives. Nutrient sustainability is essential to maintain the production capacity and reduce the effects of acidification and eutrophication. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Olfactory cues and insects - scaling relations and immigration rates

    Författare :Petter Andersson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :växtekologi; Plant Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : For herbivorous insects, location of host plants and habitat patches strongly depend on the type of sensory cue that is used during the search process and the probability of detecting a patch depends on the relative attraction between patches of different size. The visual impression of a patch increases predictably with the patch diameter and consequently, immigration rates of visually searching insects are often predicted by the scaling to patch size of visual cues.

  3. 3. The importance of search behavior and movements for spatial distributions of herbivorous insects

    Författare :Petter Andersson; Peter Hambäck; Johan Ehrlén; Tomas Roslin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Olfactory search; Habitat heterogeneity; Species-traits; Immigration; Scaling relationships; Patch size; Plant-insect interactions; EAG; Odors; Pheromones; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Insect populations commonly show large spatial variation in density, and much variation have been shown to be explained by the search behavior applied by the insect when locating habitat patches. This thesis explores the importance of odor-mediated attraction for immigration rates of herbivorous insects in relation to the size of the patches and the density of host plants within the patches.

  4. 4. Plant polyploidy and interactions with insect herbivores

    Författare :Leena Arvanitis; Johan Ehrlén; Christer Wiklund; John N. Thompson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diversicifation; herbivory; host plant preference; plant galls; plant-insect interactions; plant polyploidy; selection; spatial variation; trait-fitness relationship; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestisk ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Polyploidization has been suggested to be a common mechanism for plant speciation. Polyploidy is associated with changes in plant traits and altered habitat preference. LÄS MER

  5. 5. DYNAMIC MODELLING OF BIOGEOCHEMICAL PROCESSES IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS

    Författare :Salim Belyazid; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Naturvetenskap; marklära; Silviculture; forestry; forestry technology; Skogsvetenskap; skogsbruk; skogsteknik; Natural science; Lantbrukshydrologi; Soil Science; agricultural hydrology; Växtekologi; Forest Soil Acidification; Plant ecology; Plant biochemistry; Forest Growth; Vegetation biodiversity; Carbon Sequestration; Nitrogen Leaching; Miljökemi; Dynamic Modelling; Växtbiokemi; Environmental chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Forests in Sweden are undergoing rapid and considerable changes regarding both management methods and environmental conditions. To understand the effects of these changes and to be able to predict impending changes in forest ecosystems, a holistic understanding of the processes governing the ecosystem is needed. LÄS MER
