  1. 1. Natural enemies: Functional aspects of local management in agricultural landscapes

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Helena Hanson; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Agricultural intensification; sustainable agriculture; land use; management intensity; landscape scale; ecosystem services; biological control; species trait; pesticides; predatory arthropods; parasitoids; pollen beetles;

    Sammanfattning : Agricultural intensification has raised the global food production but also caused major concerns about environmental and health effects, including contamination by pesticides. Pesticide applications may induce toxicity not only on the target pest species but especially on non-target species. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of Farming Practice on Pollinators and Pollination across Space and Time

    Detta är en avhandling från Centre for Environmental and Climate Research, Lund University

    Författare :Georg Andersson; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Several studies have found that organic farms support higher biodiversity, but results vary between studies such that some also show no or even negative effects. There can be many reasons why studies comparing organic and conventional farming show conflicting results. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Making the Most of It? Understanding the social and productive dynamics of small farmers in semi-arid Iringa, Tanzania

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Sociology, Lund University

    Författare :Peter Gregersen; [2003]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Social changes; Malthus; Boserup; Tanzania; semi-arid Africa; Iringa; conservation; sustainability; soil fertility; degradation; population; Matthew principle; social differentiation; farmerisation; de-peasantisation; livelihood diversification; rural change; agrarian change; agricultural change; small farmers; dynamics; theory of social work; Sociala förändringar; teorier om socialt arbete;

    Sammanfattning : While much of semi-arid Africa is still sparsely populated with unused land, there are everywhere pockets of high and increasing population density in attractive locations. Small-scale farmers can respond to beginning land-scarcity in a number of ways. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Recent changes in land use and productivity in agro-pastoral Inner Mongolia, China

    Detta är en avhandling från Sara Brogaard, MICLU, Sölvegatan 10, 22362 Lund

    Författare :Sara Brogaard; [2003]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geomorphology; Physical geography; China; Inner Mongolia; remote sensing; LUE model; primary production; GPP; yield variability; land degradation; farmers’ perception; productivity; Land use; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi;

    Sammanfattning : This study challenges the prevailing assumption that the expansion of cultivated land areas and increasing number of livestock in the agro-pastoral regions of northern China have aggravated the process of land degradation since the start of the rural reforms in 1978. Land-use and productivity trends in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (IMAR), with special attention to the Keerqin steppe region, have been analysed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Tillage practices and their impact on soil organic carbon and the microbial community

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Centre for Environmental and Climate research (CEC) & Department of Biology

    Författare :Sofia Hydbom; [2017-11]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tillage; Agriculture; Long-term field experiment; Microorganism; Clayey soil; Soil organic carbon; Farmer; Sweden;

    Sammanfattning : Soil microorganisms are important for climate regulation as well as for plant nutrition. In agricultural soils the microorganisms are affected by management choices, like which type of tillage that is used. LÄS MER
