Henrik Andrén’s research focuses population and community ecology of large carnivores, specially the Eurasian lynx. One part focuses on temporal and spatial variation in reproduction and survival and linking demography to habitat and social organisation in lynx. Another part focuses on lynx as a predator and its effects on roe deer and reindeer populations. In Northern Sweden (the reindeer husbandry area) we study the coexistence of lynx and wolverine, the interaction between them and their total impact on reindeer. In Southern Sweden, we study the lynx colonization and establishment, as well as the interaction between lynx and wolf. The research has partly an applied aspect and includes forecasting the lynx population under different management strategies.
