Terpenes from coniferous trees as non-toxic alternative to synthetic pesticides against agricultural pathogens and pests

The urgent need to replace synthetic pesticides in agriculture emerges from spreading of invasive plant diseases and European Union (EU) restrictions.
The project will assess: I) the use of coniferous terpenes as potential biocides against agricultural pathogenic fungi and insects II) the effect of terpenes on plant fitness and plant resistance III) the potential toxicity of terpenes to human cells. The use of coniferous terpenes against pathogens and pests would be an effective, environmental and human health-friendly-strategy to protect agricultural yield. Results of this project may lead to novel bio-pesticides.

The acceptability of strong sustainable consumption policies for households

Hanke pohjautuu Sanna Ahvenharjun väitöskirjatyössään keräämään aineistoon. Ahvenharju on koonnut 14 ohjauskeinoa, joiden avulla voitaisiin rajoittaa kotitalouksien luonnonvarojen kulutusta. Lisäksi hän on selvittänyt noin 20 suomalaisen vaikuttajan arvioita kyseisten ohjauskeinojen hyväksyttävyydestä. Hankkeessa laaditaan yhteistyössä suomalaisen mediatalon kanssa yleistajuinen, mutta laaja artikkeli (tai artikkelisarja) aiheesta ja aineistosta sekä luodaan interaktiivinen kysely, jossa lukijat voivat esittää omia näkemyksiään kyseisistä ohjauskeinoista. Lukijoiden vastaukset analysoidaan tieteellisesti ja raportoidaan kyseisessä mediassa. Lisäksi niistä laaditaan tieteellisessa lehdessä julkaistava artikkeli.

Behaviour genetics of the endangered Saimaa ringed seal population

My PhD thesis project aims at providing an integrated view of the behavioural ecology and genetics of the Saimaa ringed seal using a combination of cutting-edge behaviour genetic approaches. More specifically, I will focus on social networks of the ringed seal population, breeding-site and mate fidelity and parasite transmission in the population. Moreover, I will develop genetic based individual age estimation method for population monitoring purposes.

Economic and Environmental Evaluation of impact of Climate Change mitigation and Nutrient abatement policies in Agricultural Basins in the Baltic Sea Region.

To overcome inefficiency of current nutrient abatement policies in the Baltic Sea region in agricultural sector this project presents a novel integrated hydro-economic modeling framework to investigate the feasibility and efficiency of tradable nutrient permits and incentive-based policies in joint implementation with CO2 mitigation targets. The project takes a step forward and investigate the scope for jointly delivering cost-effective nutrient abatement and reductions in GHG emissions within agricultural basins. The main goal of the project is to develop and implement an economic-hydrologic decision making tool to identify the trade-offs between nutrient and CO2 abatement policies, and their environmental and economic consequences in agriculture. The project evaluates farmers’ behavior in response to nutrient and CO2 abatement targets. Project identifies the optimal crop pattern and agricultural practices constrained to technology, abatement measures and environmental objectives.

Can co-restoring foundation species improve restoration success and revitalize coastal biodiversity?

The aim of this project is to determine how co-restoring seagrass meadows and bivalves reefs could increase restoration success of these coastal habitats and their associated biodiversity. These ecosystems are very important for marine communities, as well as human societies. They are threatened by human impacts such as climate change and coastal development and many are too badly degraded to recover on their own, but thus far restoration success has been low.

Learning from nature– towards sustainable crop production using soil fungi

Tutkimuksessa selvitetään, (1) mikä on sieniyhteisöjen rooli viljelysmaissa tärkeiden viljelykasvien yhteydessä, (2) miten eri viljelysmenetelmät ja niiden yhdistelmät vaikuttavat näihin sieniyhteisöihin ja (3) niiden kautta hiilenkiertoon maaperässä sekä viljakasvien satoon. Vaikutuksia tarkastellaan mikrobiston ja eristyisesti sieniyhteisöjen monimuotoisuuden ja maaperän hiilivarantojen sekä viljelykasvien kasvun kautta. Tutkimuksen tavoitteena on tunnistaa maatalouskäytännöt, jotka lisäävät maaperän hiilipitoisuutta maaperätyypistä ja sen alkuperäisestä mikrobistosta riippumatta. Viime kädessä tämä tutkimus tarjoaa tärkeitä viitteitä, joiden avulla voidaan kehittää ekologisesti perusteltuja maanmuokkausstrategioita, jotka johtavat kestävään maaperän laatuun, viljelykasvien sadon varmistamiseen ja maaperän luonnonpotentiaalin optimointiin. Tulosten perusteella laaditaan maanviljelijöille ohjeistus maatalouskäytännöistä, jotka kerryttävät hiiltä maaperään hilliten ilmastonmuutosta.

Atmospheric absorption in a changing climate: can bats experience and deal with acoustic stress?

This PhD project aims to understand how northern bats react into varying air temperature and humidity, which determine the intensity of sound absorption. Absorption limits effectively the range of bat echolocation and foraging success. With climate change, the problem might become more severe. Thus, it is important to understand this while predicting the effect of climate change for bat populations. Accurate estimates greatly benefit protection of bats.

The importance of microclimate and catchment properties on the biodiversity of subarctic aquatic ecosystems – endangered ecosystems under change

Climate warming is particularly pronounced in the northern regions, where many unique aquatic ecosystems are adapted to the cold and harsh conditions and are thus threatened. This study examines and models how the differences in microclimatic conditions affect the water temperature of the ponds, the catchment area characteristics and ecosystems even at a small spatial scale. The study also aims to create a monitoring method, which helps to anticipate the consequences of climate change in aquatic ecosystems.
