Isabella Hallberg-Sramek
I am a researcher at SLU, conducting research and teaching about sustainable forest management. I am particularly interested in the relationships between people and forests, and the effects they have on the provision of ecosystem services.


My research focuses on the relationships between people and forests, how these relationships have shaped the forests in Sweden, and the impact contemporary relationships can have on future forests. A particular emphasis is placed on how these relationships affect the benefits, known as ecosystem services, co-created in forests, and to what extent these reflect the expectations placed on forests. A central question in my research is how we can develop forest management to meet the needs of both current and future generations while maintaining vital and healthy forest ecosystems.
