Biochemistry and molecular biology

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Molecular biology concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions.

Nordic-Baltic workshop

Boreal peatlands provide an important carbon sink and play a key role in the global carbon cycle and climate system. During the past century, >10 million ha of natural peatlands have been drained in

Aquatic biogeochemistry

Greenhouse gas dynamics in the ground- and surface waters Freshwaters are an important component of the global carbon (C) cycle, emitting large amounts of the important greenhouse gases carbon


Research on biogeochemistry at the forest ecology and management department focuses on understanding the biogeochemical transformation and cycling of energy, water, carbon, nitrogen, and other

Boreal biosphere-climate interactions

Land-atmosphere exchanges of greenhouse gases, water and energy in the boreal landscape


Research at the department Specific research areas Our research is organised under seven subject areas where we develop knowledge about forest ecosystems and the processes that drive them. This

Forest landscape biogeochemistry

Forest landscape biogeochemistry includes the hydrology and biogeochemistry of forests, wetlands and surface waters and the speciation, mobility and bioavailability of carbon, nutrients and metals.

Climate and Management Impacts on Peatland Ecosystems

There is concern that peatlands are degrading in the face of global warming and that their function is diminishing as mitigation for climate change, shifting from carbon sinks to carbon sources. The

Video gallery

Videos about Forest History in Scandinavia For a first glimpse of our research ideas, have a look at our short films which we have produced together with Bosse and Titti Backström (Banum).

Peatland rewetting effects on ecosystem functioning and societal values

About 1.5-2.0 million hectares of natural peatlands in Sweden have been drained during the past century with the aim to increase timber production. These drainage activities have largely affected
