Diversified farming

The Bommarco lab analyses how diversified farming affects crop yield and ecosystem functions in crop production. We assess options for adaptation and mitigation of climate change and biodiversity

Ecosystem services in agriculture

The Bommarco lab empirically and theoretically explores ecosystem functions in insect-plant-soil food webs in agricultural ecosystems. We apply this to crop production, pest control and pollination.

Bommarco lab

We study insect and plant ecology in agriculture. We explore how farming practices, land use and climate affect biodiversity and ecosystem functions such as crop yield, pest regulation and

Agricultural entomology

Agricultural entomology is a multidisciplinary area of research with collaborationwith other units both within and outside of the department. Simply described agricultural entomology is applied

Ecosystem Ecology

We study interactions between the living and the non-living in ecosystems and how humans affect them. An ecosystem may be a handful of soil, a park, a landscape or the entire biosphere. We focus on

Forest ecophysiology

This subject area includes nitrogen nutrition of plants in general and of forest plants in particular and its key role in boreal forest ecosystems. Our research deals with nitrogen nutrition of

Department of Forest Ecology and Management

Department of Forest Ecology and Management Here at the department, our mission is to advance the understanding of forest ecosystem processes and to progress the principles of forest ecosystem


Our research is organised under seven subject areas where we develop knowledge about forest ecosystems and the processes that drive them. This knowledge is then transferred to best forest management

Peat Maps

Predicted thickness of the organic layer

About Peat maps

The peat map is released as two different products, a classified map and a continuous map of the thickness of the organic layer. The peat maps are based on nearly 5,500 measurements of the thickness

The quality of Peat maps

The quality of the map has been evaluated by comparing the maps with field measurements at 2,883 locations throughout the country. As a measure of how well a map corresponds to reality, you can use

The documentation regarding soil moisture maps explains how the maps are calculated and how they can be interpreted. There is also a product description and a technical description of the maps. For
