Conservation and Ecology

The research includes terrester, limnic and marine projects. In different environments threatened and vulnerable populations of species are studied, principally fish, birds, seals, lizards, evertebrates and vascular plants. To understand the function and threats of small populations individuals are studied over time; also genetical changes are quantified. In forest environments with high natural values seven groups of organisms are studied concerning their response to alternative conservation management and in alpine environment long term changes on vegetation and climate changes are studied.

In marine systems, including coastal areas, we study effects of climate change, human activity and the use of resources on environments and species.

In limnic systems the research is focused on streams and salmonidae fish. An overall theme is that we cooperate with managers of species and natural environments, mainly authorities, to make it possible to directly take advantage of the research results there.














Field experiments are important as a part of the research at BioEnv. Small birds are prevented from foraging on saplings of Mountain ash. By comparing between control saplings (without net) it´s possible to quantify the effect of small birds as predators on insects and spiders who lives on Mountain ash. Foto Erik Heyman.
