Keeping tabs on ecosystems

We collect data and make them available in order to analyse environmental trends. We also assist with our knowledge about species, coastal areas and seas, forests, agricultural landscapes, lakes and watercourses.

For the benefit of society

SLU maintains an ongoing dialogue with various stakeholders, especially within agriculture, livestock farming, horticulture, forestry, wildlife management, aquaculture and fisheries. International involvement is deeply rooted at the university.
