Dormancy cycling: from signals to developmental transitions

Trær og andre stauder må avbryte sin vekst før vinteren. Riktig planlegging er viktig, fordi trær må optimalisere balansen mellom vekst og vinter beskyttelse. Løvtrær i den nordlige klima måler fotoperiode for å arrestere vekst, etablere endogen hvile, og tilegne seg toleranse mot frysing. En va...

NORKLIMA-Klimaendringer og konsekvenser for Norge

N2O emissions from N saturated subtropical forest in South China

Surplus of reactive nitrogen (Nr) is one of China's most pressing environmental problems, and may cause a positive feedback to climate change through increased N2O emission. We previously found that forests in sub-tropical China receiving high atmogenic N loads (> 4g N m-2 yr-1) differ in their ...

BIONÆR-Bionæringsprogram

Creating a scientific basis for an integrated evaluation of soil-borne GHG emissions in Norwegian agriculture

Agroecosystems contribute to global warming by direct and indirect emissions of the greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O. Cultivated soils are either net sinks or sources for CO2 and strong sources of N2O. Thus, cultivated soils indisputably contribute to th e total GHG budget of food production. Ho...

Skoglauget - Økt rekruttering til skognæringen og skogfagsstudier

Søkningen til skogfagutdanningene på høyere nivå har falt dramatisk de siste årene. Opptaket i 2006 var historisk lavt og færre enn 10 studenter startet høyere utdanning i skogfag i Norge (3 ved UMB og 6-7 ved HiH). For 2007 var det en gledelig økning, me d 13 nye bachelor¬studenter i skogfag ved...

SKOGFOND-Utviklingsfondet for skogbruket

Economic analyses of use of forest and forest products in Norway to reduce the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases, utenlandsstip.

Forest and forest products contribute today in two ways to the reduction of atmospheric content of greenhouse gases. First, while growing, forest absorbs CO2, which is stored in the wood. An old tree may be a pure storage of carbon. But later, the tree wi ll decompose and emit CO2 until most of t...

Fertilizer technologies for reduced N2O emission from food production

We are convinced that there exist options for reducing N2O emissions per unit N input, and that these can be most effectively explored by investigating how N2O emissions are regulated at the cellular-, microhabitat-, microcosm level (rather than by measur ing N2O fluxes at the field scale). Our...
