Integration is demanding. It challenges ingrained perceptions, solutions, understandings and concepts. In order for research to make a contribution to integration and conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, new and innovative perspectives are needed. CBM aim to provide new and innovative perspectives on the importance of biodiversity for people and communities to fulfill this.
Our current and future research can be characterized by six different themes that describe the complex relationships we want to highlight.
People and land use
People, land use and biodiversity – transdisciplinary research for new ecological knowledge for sustainable use of biological diversity (by consumers, producers and for management of ecosystems). Contact: Johnny de Jong
Global environmental change
Global environmental change and biodiversity - local experiences with solutions to global problems and local solution effects on global problems. Contact: Tommy Lennartsson.
Policy change and implementation
Policy change, implementation and biodiversity - where policy meets ecology to achieve solutions that contribute to the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity. Contact: Maria Forsberg
Biodiversity and cultural heritage
Biodiversity and cultural heritage - historical ecology, and traditional knowledge to understand the present and indicate sustainable paths to the future. Contact: Anna Westin
Infrastructure for humans and biodiversity - where development practice meets ecology and society to discover new ecological knowledge and solutions that support biodiversity. Contact: Åke Berg
