Fish and wildlife management
Fish and wildlife management can be improved by animal ecology research. At SLU, the research includes wildlife dynamics connected to feeding, ecological aspects on animal transfers and feeding, interactions between animals and plants, the effects of climate change on animals, humans and ecosystems. In the management hunting and fishing is included.
Wildlife and predators
Our research provides a scientific basis for the management of Swedish wildlife and predators. Information is needed on how the animals live and where in Sweden they are found, alongside biological
Applied Population Ecology
Why do some populations grow while others decline? How large is a population required to be sure that a species will not go extinct? How can we best select among alternate ways of conserving an
Lakes and watercourses
We provide data and expertise to further the work on Sweden's environmental objective Flourishing Lakes and Streams and other objectives related to water quality. We also support various public
Pros and cons with growing wildlife populations
In many parts of Europe and North America, populations of large mammals and birds have recovered during recent decades. In Sweden, this has resulted in more wildlife than was historically recorded.
Immature sperm useful when saving endangered felids
Epididymal sperm preservation offers a potential for rescuing genetic material from endangered or valuable animals after injury or death. Spermatozoa from corpus, as well as from cauda, have the

Cod's response to climate change
Cod is a keystone species in marine ecosystems. It shapes the conditions for a large number of other species in the sea and is also of great importance both economically and culturally. However, the
Population genetics of coastal fish
Biological diversity is not only a matter of species diversity. Genetic diversity within species is equally important. Genetic patterns can be analyzed and described using modern DNA techniques, and
