Current research

Dramatic reduction in reindeer lichen over the last 60 years
"I have used data from the Swedish NFI to study the óccurance and distribution of reindeer lichen since the 1950's
The data shows a large longterm reduction in the occurance of lichen rich forests - something that affects both reindeer hearding and forest management.
