  1. 1. Mosses as mediators of climate change : implications for tree seedling establishment in the tundra

    Författare :Signe Lett; Ellen Dorrepaal; David Wardle; Marie-Charlotte Nilsson; Vigdis Vandvik; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; arctic; alpine; B. pubescens; bryophytes; competition; facilitation; mosses; P. sylvestris; precipitation changes; seedlings; traits; tree line; warming;

    Sammanfattning : Alpine and arctic tree line expansion depends on the establishment of tree seedlings above the current tree line, which is expected to occur with climate warming. However, tree lines often fail to respond to higher temperatures. Other environmental factors are therefore likely important for tree seedling establishment. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Genetic variation and sexual reproduction in a moss with dwarf males, Homalothecium lutescens

    Författare :Frida Rosengren; Biodiversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bryophytes; mosses; dwarf males; sexual reproduction; genetic variation; genetic structure; inbreeding; isozymes; allozymes; SNP; sporophytes; spore; fertilization; fertility;

    Sammanfattning : Dwarf males occur in many unrelated groups of organisms. Among land plants they are unique to mosses. Moss dwarf males originate from male spores that land and germinate on the female where their final size is restricted to a few mm. Fertilization in mosses occur over short distances with swimming spermatozoids. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Grow with the flow : Hydrological controls of riparian vegetation in boreal stream networks

    Författare :Lenka Kuglerová; Roland Jansson; Hjalmar Laudon; Birgitta Malm-Renöfält; John Stella; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; boreal forest; channelization; groundwater; Krycklan catchment; liverworts; mosses; riparian buffers; riparian vegetation; river restoration; species richness; stream network; stream size; vascular plants;

    Sammanfattning : What drives species diversity across landscapes is one of the most fundamental questions in ecology. Further, understanding the mechanisms underlying species diversity patterns is important not only for forming and challenging ecological theories but also essential for appropriate landscape management and effective nature conservation.

  4. 4. Biological growth on rendered façades

    Författare :Sanne Johansson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temperature; render; radiation; photosynthesis; moulds; mosses; mortar; moisture; lichens; Imaging-PAM; humidity; heat capacity; heat; ETICS; algae; biological growth; calorimetry; desiccation tolerance;

    Sammanfattning : Biological organisms have an incredible ability to adapt to almost any environment and the humans activities on earth have created many new habitats for different kinds of organisms. For example can certain organisms grow on rocks and vertical cliffs, and when humans started building houses with mineral based façades, some organisms found that these were new habitats to live on.

  5. 5. Biological growth on mineral façades

    Författare :Sanne Johansson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; moisture transport; mortar; mosses; biodeterioration; lichens; moulds; mineral facades; building physics; thin rendering on thermal insulation; heat transfer; biological growth; algae; heat capacity;

    Sammanfattning : During the last years there has been reported considerable and rapid contamination on newly built rendered façades in Sweden due to biological growth. The problem is believed to occur mostly on façades of render applied on thermal insulation, but apart from this it is difficult to find clear relationships indication which façades might be infected.
