Fluvial Geomorphology Research Fluvial geomorphology is a science devoted to understanding rivers, both in their natural setting as well as how they respond to human-induced changes in a watershed. One goal is to predict what changes will occur to a stream channel in response to alterations in watershed conditions; and, in turn, how these changes will impact human infrastructure and fish habitat.
Model Forest as framework for multi-stakeholder cooperation and regional governance. The master thesis student will be included in an ongoing European research project: Regional Learning Labs RLLs are a participatory research method used in SIMWOOD project to gathering data about wood mobilization and uses of non-timber forest resources with forest owners, managers and practitioners as well as to support the Model Forests development in Castile and Leon.
Student will be inserting in a dynamic team at the University of Valladolid campus of Palencia and will participate in a wide European research network Genetic control of Pine Pitch Canker by the use of pine provenances During the Master Degree activities is planned to plant out seedlings of different pine species Pinus radiata, P.
The work will run with research on young pine plants artificially inoculated with the pathogen in phytotrons at the University of Valladolid in Palencia.
The work will utilize a number of provenances and sources of Spanish pines matched on to different regions in the Cantabrian pine forest. At least two provenances from each species will be tested. This research activities are essential in search of alternatives to Monterrey Pine in Spain.
Julio Diez Casero Location: UVa - Campus at Palencia Local basal area effect on needle litterfall amount and nutrient concentration in Pinus sylvestris l plantations in Spain The aim of this study will be to evaluate the seasonal pattern of nutrient concentration in litterfall and to assess whether local basal area of the stand affects nutrient concentration of litterfall.
Needle litterfall amount and their nutrient concentration will be studied in four stands of Pinus sylvestrys Mill. Eight plots have been established on each stand covering the widest range in local basal area present in the stands.
Litterfall has been collected from the littertraps on a monthly basis form November to October Litterfall will be separated into different fractions needles, branches, bark, flowers, buds, cones and nuts and the dry weight of each fraction will be registered.
Dry weight of the residual mass of litterbags will be also recorded. Linear mixed model analysis of variance will be used to study the effect of local basal area on nutrient concentration in litterfall. Soil Science Area UVA-Palencia Effect of land-use change from natural forests of Quercus pubescens to cultivation lands in the soil phosphorus dynamic.
The aims of this study will be to determine the changes in phosphorus forms concentrations in whole soil and in its particle-size fractions sand, silt and clay that resulted from: The big amount of time transcurred since the first deforestation 73 yearsthe availability of three different deforestation dates and the remaining undisturbed forest, offered an interesting opportunity of studying these changes, along with assessing factors such as land use forestry vs agriculture and land management types correlating with the amount of time since deforestation 26, 35 and 73 years.

In a repeating process, the volcano would violently erupt, then eventually collapse into a roughly circular seawater-filled calderawith numerous small islands forming the circle.|

However, due to the pyrophytic characteristics of this species, forest fires are the main threat to these ecosystems. Data will be analyze from a complex perspective including both social and biophysical dimmensions of forestry. The master thesis student will be included in an ongoing European Project: Student will be insert in a dynamic team at University of Valladolid campus of Palencia Supervisors: Aditionally tree ring growth relationship will be analyzed by using R packages measuRing and bioDry developed by our group.

The plots were installed at six sites under different canopy densities along a natural light gradient.The following list consists of Canadian theses with a palynology component. Besides those whose principal focus is palynology, this list also contains some theses whose prime focus is elsewhere but which contain palynological information.
Rationale. Applied geomorphology emphasizes geomorphological processes that are of societal significance, including the effects of urbanization on the physical environment and hazards such as flooding, coastal erosion and sea-level rise.

MULTIPLE USE FOREST MANAGEMENT PLANNING: THE LEGAL AND TECHNICAL ANALYSIS FOR THE APPLICATION. Borders and boundaries, commonly defined as the lines dividing distinct political, social, or legal territories, are arguably the most ubiquitous features within the field of political geography.
Indeed, borders have become prominent topics of research for a range of scholars from across the social.
