Ecosystem Science


The subject Ecosystem Science is about processes and interactions within and between the soil, water, biosphere, and atmosphere systems. The subject is important since we humans today influence the ecosystems in such a way that it greatly affects for instance the climate, nutrient cycling and biodiversity.

To find solutions for our impact we need to understand how ecosystems function and what can be done to mitigate for example the biogenic greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide). Our work encompass assessment of different ecosystems, from the little soil crumb to landscape processes, from polar and boreal regions to the tropics, where we humans have affected these ecosystems.

We use different measurement methods, analyses and model estimations to answer questions, originating from within science as well as from societal needs addressing several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our work is within several networks and we organize research infrastructures like Skogaryd research station.

Within Ecosystem Science we currently do research in the following four topics:
