  1. 1. Nitrification and Nitrifying Bacterial Communities in Coniferous Forest Soils : Effects of Liming and Clear-Cutting

    Författare :Jenny Bäckman; Wietse de Boer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the effects of liming and clear-cutting on nitrification in hemi-boreal and northern temperate coniferous forest soils. The approach has been to study both the potential nitrification and the community structure of the ammonia-oxidising bacteria, which carry out the first step of autotrophic nitrification. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Resistance and recolonization of bryophyte assemblages following disturbances : - detecting patterns and exploring mechanisms

    Författare :Martin Schmalholz; Kristoffer Hylander; Jari Kouki; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Bryophytes; boreal forest; boulders; clear-cutting; disturbance; establishment; insect outbreaks; microtopography; recolonization; resistance; spatial heterogeneity; succession; wildfires; Biology; Biologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Disturbances are ubiquitous features of most northern forest ecosystems. The subsequent response of plant assemblages on both short (resistance or not) and long term (recolonization or not) will depend on a number of factors operating at several spatial scales. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Effects of forest management on greenhouse gas fluxes in a boreal forest

    Författare :Patrik Vestin; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :Forest management; Greenhouse gas fluxes; Clear-cutting; Thinning; Stump harvesting; Selective cutting; Eddy-covariance; Flux-gradient; Greenhouse gas budgets; CO2; CH4; N2O;

    Sammanfattning : Forest ecosystems cover 31% of the terrestrial land area and store large amounts of carbon in biomass and in soils. The 2015 Paris Agreement recognizes the importance of sinks and reservoirs of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in forests and the importance of enhancing them through sustainable forest management policies.

  4. 4. Clear-cutting - The most discussed logging method in Swedish forest history

    Författare :Hanna Lundmark; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Clear-cutting has been applied in Sweden for nearly 200 years. To understand the history of this method, the ongoing discussion about logging methods, and the current debate about clear-cutting, an analysis of the forestry history is needed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects of heterogeneity : effects of clear-cutting and post-harvest extraction of bioenergy on plants in boreal forests

    Författare :Marcus Åström; Christer Nilsson; Katherine Frego; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :aspect; clear-cutting; disturbance; habitat quality; liverworts; logging residues; mosses; resilience; slash; slope; topography;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract. The objectives of this thesis are to evaluate (1) the influence of slope aspect on boreal plant responses to clear-cutting and (2) the effects of post-harvest extraction of bioenergy (logging residues or slash) on plant composition, richness and performance in clear-cuts.
