  2. 2. Historical Urban Agriculture : Food Production and Access to Land in Swedish Towns before 1900

    Författare :Annika Björklund; Mats Widgren; Johannes Renes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; urban agriculture; urban history; urban geography; Sweden; town; food production; food consumption; Uppsala; historical geography; land allocation; cadastral maps; urban land-use; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis analyses the role of historical urban agriculture in a long-time perspective, through a combination of overarching surveys of Swedish towns and detailed studies of one town – Uppsala in east-central Sweden. The study shows how agricultural land – town land – of various sizes was donated to towns repeatedly during medieval times and in the 16th and 17th centuries. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Land-Use and Climate Effects of Bioenergy: Carbon balances of Swedish forest bioenergy systems – and – Geospatial biomass supply-and-demand matching for Europe

    Författare :Olivia Cintas Sanchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; GIS; EU; bioenergy; Sweden; agriculture; residues; Forestry; climate change; GHG balances;

    Sammanfattning : In order to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, greenhouse gas emissions have to be drastically reduced. Bioenergy can play a role in climate change mitigation by substituting for energy from fossil fuels; however, biomass is a limited resource associated with emissions from land use and land-use change.

  5. 5. Felling Forests from Afar: Quantifying Deforestation Driven by Agricultural Expansion and International Trade

    Författare :Florence Pendrill; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Forest transitions; Land cover; Carbon footprints; Agriculture; Forestry; Carbon emissions; Land use; International trade; Deforestation;

    Sammanfattning : Deforestation is a major source of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions and the largest threat to terrestrial biodiversity. Most forest loss is due to the expansion of agricultural land use increasingly driven by international demand for food, fuel and fibre. LÄS MER
