Spatial separation of litter decomposition and mycorrhizal nitrogen uptake in a boreal forest.
Observations show that the degrading and nutrient-mobilizing components of the fungal community are spatially separated, which has important implications for biogeochemical studies of boreal forest ecosystems.
Tree Diversity Drives Forest Stand Resistance to Natural Disturbances
Overall, the findings suggest that mixed forests are more resistant to natural disturbances that are relatively small-scale and selective in their effect, however, benefits provided by mixtures are less evident for larger-scale disturbances.
Replacing monocultures with mixed-species stands: Ecosystem service implications of two production forest alternatives in Sweden
Positive outcomes from mixtures are identified including increased biodiversity, water quality, esthetic and recreational values, as well as reduced stand vulnerability to pest and pathogen damage.

Adaptation to Climate Change in Swedish Forestry
Adaptation to climate change in forestry has become a growing concern, in part due to the impact of storms and other events that have raised the awareness of such risks amongst forest owners. Sweden…

Nitrogen and Carbon Reallocation in Fungal Mycelia during Decomposition of Boreal Forest Litter
The experiments provide a detailed picture of how resource reallocation in two decomposer fungi leads to a more efficient utilisation of spatially separated resources under N-limitation.
