Climate change

Last changed: 05 December 2018

Climate change will be a major driver for ecosystem change during the coming century, and its impacts are already apparent on species and ecosystems across the world. Our research on the effects of climate change and other global processes considers population dynamics, species interactions, ecosystem functioning and species distributions. We are particularly interested in the interactive effects of climate change and other drivers, such as land use change, nitrogen deposition and invasive species.



All publications from the Department of Ecology.   Follow Facebook and our news flow  if you are interested in news about our projects and results. You can also find publications at researchers cv-pages.

Research groups

The department consists of eight major research groups  All groups work with climate to some extent.
