  2. 2. Physiological responses of marine and brackish Fucus vesiculosus L. with respect to salinity

    Författare :Maria Gylle; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; acclimation; Bothnian Sea; compatible solutes; desiccation; fluorescence; F. vesiculosus; F. radicans; immunoblot; mannitol; photosynthesis; Rubisco; salinity; Algfysiologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : The intertidal brown alga Fucus vesiculosus L. is mainly a marine species (34 practical salinity units, psu), but the alga also grows in the sublittoral of the brackish Bothnian Sea (part of the Baltic Sea; 5 psu). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Skog, makt och människor. En miljöhistoria om svensk skog 1800-1875

    Författare :Per Eliasson; Historia; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; forest commons; science of forestry; forest crimes; desiccation; silviculture; environmental history; forests; Silviculture; forestry; forestry technology; Skogsvetenskap; skogsbruk; skogsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this dissertation is to investigate how and why silviculture was introduced in Sweden in the nineteenth century and the consequences this introduction had during the same period. The term silviculture refers to the systematic cultivation of high forest, a method that spread from Germany at the end of the eighteenth century. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genetically Engineered Plants: Improved stress tolerance, growth and facilitated protein purification

    Författare :Gösta Lilius; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glycine betaine; gene; freezing; flooding; drought; dicoteledones; desiccation; compatible solutes; cold; choline dehydrogenase; chill; CDH; betaine; betA; alkaloids anoxia; affinity purification; affinity tags; handles; hemoglobin; hypoxia; low temperatu; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Heterologous genes were expressed in plants in which the overall goal was to increase the value of the final crop. Various aspects were explored and evaluated, such as improving the stress tolerance, enhancing the availability of oxygen in growing cells and producing rare proteins with increased degrees of purity.

  5. 5. Functional Traits in Sphagnum

    Författare :Fia Bengtsson; Håkan Rydin; Gustaf Granath; Cronberg Nils; Sari Juutinen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; peat mosses; functional traits; NPP; decay resistance; N2 fixation; desiccation resistance; climate; Biology with specialization in Ecological Botany; Biologi med inriktning mot ekologisk botanik; peat mosses; destination resistance;

    Sammanfattning : Peat mosses (Sphagnum) are ecosystem engineers that largely govern carbon sequestration in northern hemisphere peatlands. I investigated functional traits in Sphagnum species and addressed the questions: (I) Are growth, photosynthesis and decomposition and the trade-offs between these traits related to habitat or phylogeny?, (II) Which are the determinants of decomposition and are there trade-offs between metabolites that affect decomposition?, (III) How do macro-climate and local environment determine growth in Sphagnum across the Holarctic?, (IV) How does N2 fixation vary among different species and habitats?, (V) How do species from different microtopographic niches avoid or tolerate desiccation, and are leaf and structural traits adaptations to growth high above the water table?Photosynthetic rate and decomposition in laboratory conditions (innate growth and decay resistance) were related to growth and decomposition in their natural habitats.
