Last changed: 13 December 2011

The symposium ‘Ecosystem Services in soil and water research’ took place 7-10 June 2011 at the Ultuna campus of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden.

 The objectives of the symposium were:

  • To be a forum for presentations and discussions of ’state-of-the-art’ research within Ecosystem Services in soil and water research.
  • To increase understanding of the potential role of soil and aquatic sciences in interdisciplinary research
  • To discuss possibilities for strengthening co-operation in post-graduate education within soil and aquatic sciences between universities in northern Europe.

Ecosystem services in soil and aquatic sciences were addressed in six different sessions with focus on supporting and regulating systems as well as threats to and protection of services provided by soil and aquatic systems. The scope ranged from basic to applied research with strong links to different sectors of society
