Background and activities

My main research interest is concerning large herbivores, especially moose, and how they affect the vegetation and ecosystem functioning in boreal production forests. I focus on a wide range of herbivore-vegetation interactions including carbon and nutrient dynamics. An underlying aim of this research is to supply a mechanistic understanding of ecosystem dynamics which can aid and direct the simultaneous management of the multiple ecosystem services which we rely on from our forests.
