Kristensen, Lilly, 2009. Effekten av arktiskt klimat på inre kvalitet hos bär. First cycle, G1E. Alnarp: SLU, Horticulture (until 121231)



This project is a literature study with the hypothesis that Arctic climate has a positive effect on the accumulation of metabolites in berries. Plant metabolites are often divided into primary and secondary metabolites. Primary metabolites such as proteins and nucleic acids are essential for cell function, while secondary metabolites are often non-essential, but have important functions regarding reproduction and survival. The berries mentioned in this project are from the families Ericaceae, Rosaceae, Elaeagnaceae och Grossulariaceae.
The conclusion drawn from this literature study is that it is not obvious what favours accumulation of metabolites in berries. Other factors aside from climate affect the production of secondary metabolites, such as time of harvest, cultivars and ripeness. Therefore it is not possible to make the conclusion that Arctic climate has a positive effect on accumulation of metabolites in berries.
