Biological and Environmental Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences (BioEnv) which is located in the Botanical Garden and on Medicinareberget in Gothenburg and Kristineberg (Fiskebäckskil) at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Infrastructure.

Our teaching and research activities stretch from the alpine ecosystem, through forests, cultivated land and streams, all the way into the marine environment. In these environments we study different levels of biological organisation from genes, individuals and populations, to communities and ecosystems. We work within ecology, evolution, physiology, systematics and combinations of these fields in order to understand the impact of natural and anthropogenic changes of the environment.
