Department of Ecology
We are looking for a researcher who can assist in a project in which we are synthesizing the scientific knowledge about how the use of non-native tree species affects biodiversity and the delivery of ecosystem services.
At the Department of Ecology in Uppsala, we conduct research for sustainable forest and agricultural production and efficient biological conservation. We study the influence of land use and climate on animals, plants, soils nutrient status, and greenhouse gas balances. Solutions are sought that will mitigate climate change, preserve threatened species, benefit biological diversity and ecosystem services, and control pests in forest and agricultural landscapes as well as in urban areas.
