I am a PhD student in Forest Management. My supervisors are Gustaf Egnell and Matthias Peichl.
The main aim of my research project is to assess the long-term sustainability of intense harvest (slash and stump removal) by assessing the impact on a number of ecosystem services provided by our forests:
1. Carbon in soil and tree biomass;
2. Nitrogen in soil and tree biomass;
3. Seedling establishment and tree growth and C accumulation;
4. Berry production.
