  1. 1. Using leaf economics to find appropriate woody species for rain gardens

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Författare :Sanna Ignell; [2020]
    Nyckelord :leaf economics; woody vegetation; urban vegetation; rain garden; waterlogging; flooding; plasticity; specific leaf area; leaf traits; l;

    Sammanfattning : Urban rainwater management faces great challenges in the future, caused by expected increase in precipitation and frequency of storms associated with climate change. Constructions such as rain gardens may be a mean for adaptation to, as well as mitigation of these effects. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Buskars potential för urbana miljöer : utvärdering av olika buskars bladekonomi

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Författare :Filip Kalenius; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Grime; CSR; Leaf economics; trait; Shrubs; Fast-slow spectrum; LFW; SLA; LDMC;

    Sammanfattning : Artvariation i städer har i dag en låg andel buskarter, framför allt när det kommer till variation av olika buskarter och -släkten. Att öka mängden buskarter är något som i längden kan komma att vara viktig, framförallt för artvariationen (t.ex. vid sjukdomsdrabbning). LÄS MER

  3. 3. How to improve the soilless cultivation of sweet basil looking at light and nutrition?

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, SLU/Dept. of Crop Production Ecology

    Författare :Hedvig Säll; [2020]
    Nyckelord :hydroponics; aeroponics; sweet basil; essential oils; vertical farming;

    Sammanfattning : Sweet basil of the variety Genovese Gigante is an economically important crop with common use in the gastronomic, medical and cosmetic fields, to name a few, due to the high content of essential oils (EO). Indoor cultivation is a viable alternative to grow sweet basil all-year-round, independent of the outdoor conditions. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genotyping ethylene production genes Md-ACS1 and Md-ACO1 for markerassisted selection in apple

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Författare :Johan Lundmark; [2019]
    Nyckelord :malus domestica; ripening; fruit firmness; shelf-life; storage; nordic; Baltic;

    Sammanfattning : Texture, firmness and storability are among the most important traits for fruit quality in apple. Consumers are increasingly demanding apples with a “crispy texture”, and the market is offering a premium for a longer shelf life, which has as a result generated an increased interest from plant breeders to meet these demands.

  5. 5. Reindeer induced changes in vegetation composition and plant traits on a tundra-forest border

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Femke Pijcke; [2019]
    Nyckelord :physical geography; ecosystem analysis; plant functional traits; nutrient allocation; grazing; reindeer; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) are the most common large herbivores in the arctic. With a habitat spreading over the entire circumpolar region, they can have a substantial effect on plant species composition and ecosystem processes and functions. LÄS MER
