    Sammanfattning : The extent and effect of forest fires on ancient remains and cultural heritage in the boreal forest of Sweden is relatively unknown and scarcely researched.

  5. 5. Experiencing and responding to climate change in the Andes : campesino experiences with – and Responses to – changes in the climate in the Andean highlands of Southern Ecuador

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Sammanfattning : Climate change poses a significant challenge to society, in particular as it constitutes a threat to food security. Considering Andean campesinos are heavily affected by changes in the climate and substantially contribute to the food security of the larger Andean population, it is crucial to investigate their experiences with – and (undertaken and proposed) responses to – changes in the climate.
