[ID: 469] Endophytic plant growth-promoting bacteria isolated from Scots pine needles

PI: Tinkara Bizjak

The main aim of the study is to examine if isolated nitrogen-fixing bacteria from Scots pine needles possess plant growth-promoting properties such as phosphorus and zinc solubilization, siderophore production, HCN production, IAA production and protease and cellulase activity. Additionally, to test if the isolated bacteria showing plant growth-promoting properties in in vitro assays, are able to promote the growth of important agricultural crops such as cucumber, kale, tomato and corn in in vivo study using non-sterile soil.

[ID: 287] Single tree ground laser scanning

PI: Ola Langvall

Laser scanning will be used to predict wood quality in a research project run by Kenneth Olofsson, SLU, Fjärranalys. Ten Scots pine trees of various sizes and quality are laser scanned from the ground and then harvested. Parameters for quality are assessed on the logs and the logs are sent for X-ray scanning at the sawmill in Fiskarheden, to get data for actual wood quality inside the tree.

[ID: 195] Radial distribution of deuterium in Scots pine trees

PI: Reimo Lutter

The aim of the project is to describe the radial distribution of deuterium in Scots pine tree rings in order to develop a sampling methodology in 2H2-labeled water experiments . The experiment is located in Rosinedal experimental forest where 2H2-labeled water was added to soil. Tree ring samples were collected from two trees close to the labeled area in 2019. The sampling was carried out in four different heights (ground level, 1.3m, 2.0m and from the beginning of the living crown). From each height, 16 core samples were taken around the stem. In addition, core samples were taken from coarse roots.
