  1. 1. Herbivores influence nutrient cycling and plant nutrient uptake : insights from tundra ecosystems

    Författare :Hélène Barthelemy; Olofsson Johan; Ellen Dorrepaal; Ann Milbau; Gough Laura; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reindeer grazing; large herbivores; nutrient cycling; plant nutrient uptake; soil nutrient availability; arctic plant ecology; soil microbial communities; 15N stable isotopes; plant-soil interactions; plant quality; dung and urine.; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap; biology; biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Reindeer appear to have strong positive effects on plant productivity and nutrient cycling in strongly nutrient-limited ecosystems. While the direct effects of grazing on vegetation composition have been intensively studied, much less is known about the indirect effect of grazing on plant-soil interactions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Role of cadmium and ultraviolet-B radiation in plants, Influence on photosynthesis and element content in two species of Brassicaceae

    Författare :Helene Larsson Jönsson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; UV-B; plant nutrients; photosynthesis; oxygen evolution; chlorophyll fluorescence; Cd uptake; cadmium; Arabidopsis thaliana; Brassica napus; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi; Botany; Botanik;

    Sammanfattning : Plants are exposed to many different stress factors during their lifetime, often more than one factor at a time, which highlights the importance of research regarding interaction among stress factors. Cadmium and ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B, 280-315 nm) are two potential stress factors in the environment, which have gained increased interest due to atmospheric pollution. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Heavy metal contamination and toxicity : Studies of Macroalgae from the Tanzanian Coast

    Författare :Florence Alex Mamboya; Mats Björk; Nils Ekelund; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Heavy metals; Padina gymnospora; Ulva reticulata; salinity; nutrients; proteins; uptake; growth; Fv Fm; Zanzibar Channel; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Concentrations of various metals are elevated above background levels in several intertidal areas along the Tanzanian coasts. However, there is little available information concerning the toxicity of these metals and how the uptake of these metals by bioindicators are influenced by external factors, such as heavy rains and increased coastal eutrophication, which tend to fluctuate.

  4. 4. Linking plant population dynamics to the local environment and forest succession

    Författare :Johan Petter Dahlgren; Johan Ehrlén; Ove Eriksson; Mark Rees; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Actaea spicata; Forest herbs; Forest succession; Integral projection model; Plant demography; Plant phenology; Population dynamics; Pre-dispersal seed predation; Seed mass; Soil potassium; Specific leaf area; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestisk ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Linking environmental variation to population dynamics is necessary to understand and predict how the environment influences species abundances and distributions. I used demographic, environmental and trait data of forest herbs to study effects of spatial variation in environmental factors on populations as well as environmental change in terms of effects of forest succession on field layer plants.

  5. 5. Plant-associated soil communities : Patterns, drivers and aboveground consequences

    Författare :Pil Uthaug Rasmussen; Ayco J. M. Tack; Martijn Bezemer; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aboveground-belowground interactions; arbuscular mycorrhiza; climate; dispersal; environmental drivers; fungi; genetic variation; nematodes; plant-herbivore interactions; soil communities; spatial patterns; Ecology and Evolution; ekologi och evolution;

    Sammanfattning : Soil contains a wealth of diversity – bacteria, fungi, nematodes, arthropods and earthworms are just some of the many organisms found belowground. These organisms play an important role in shaping the soil environment and they strongly influence plant fitness, diversity and community composition. LÄS MER
