Small biotopes: Landscape and management effects on pollinators

Annika Söderman, theis defence 9.30 in the Ecology Building, Sölvegatan 37, Lund. Room: Blå Hallen. 

In her thesis, Annika Söderman, has investigated the importance of preserving small biotopes (e.g. field boundaries, road verges, field islets and marl pits) for the persistence of plants and pollinators in agricultural landscapes of varying complexity. She has also evaluated the effectiveness of a Swedish AES focused on preventing woody encroachment of small biotopes, with the partial aim of benefiting biodiversity, on the species richness and abundances of pollinators. The results show that small biotopes are imporant for the preservation of both plants and pollinators, within agricultural landscapes of varying structural complexity.

Tracking environmental changes of the Baltic Sea coastal zone since mid-Holocene

Wenxin Ning, thesis defence 13:15 in the Geocentrum II, Sölvegatan 12, Lund. Room: Pangea.

In his thesis, Wenxin Ning, has used two coastal sediment sequences from Sweden to study how the Baltic Sea coastal environment has changed since the mid-Holocene. The results show that the coastal environment has been influenced by multi-stressors, such as climate change, shoreline regression and anthropogenic activities.  Contact Wenxin Ning: wenxin [dot] ning [at] geol [dot] lu [dot] se
