Here are the maps

The peat map is now available for the whole country except in some coastal areas where it cannot be retrieved and in some mountain areas that were not laser scanned when it was developed. This has

Wild animals can help us reach the 1.5 degree target

Protecting and restoring populations of wild animal species can help keeping global temperature rise below the critical threshold of 1.5 degrees, while at the same bending the negative biodiversity

How can we combine improved quality and quantity of crop production with enhanced ecosystem services and reduced negative environmental impact? The Department of Crop Production Ecology contributes




Hjalmar Laudon, professor My research is primarily directed towards understanding how land use and climate influence water quality from a landscape perspective. I am the scientific director for the

Cycling in forest-wetland-lake ecosystem

Photodegradation of methyl mercury (MeHg) in boreal lakes – the missing link to complete forest-wetland-lake ecosystem cycling budgets of MeHg PI: Ulf Skyllberg Co-PI: Erik Bjön (Umeå University),

Mercury biogeochemistry in forest-wetland-lake ecosystems

Our research focuses on improving the understanding of factors and processes in the control of mercury (Hg) transformations in soils and waters, such as the reduction and methylation of Hg(II) and

Atmosphere-land exchange

Using novel Eddy Mercury technique to constrain land-atmosphere Hg exchange over boreal peatlands PI: Wei Zhu Co-PI: Ulf Skyllberg, Stefan Osterwalder (ETH Zurich), Kevin Bishop (SLU-Uppsala),

Landscape ecology

No biological system exists in isolation. Ecosystems, communities, local populations and individuals always interact to some extent with their surroundings. These surroundings may filter which
