I lead several research projects in marine ecology, and am the scientific coordinator for the strategic research program EcoChange.
My research concerns effects of environmental and climate change on the productivity and the food web structure of northern aquatic ecosystems.
Working on the adaptation strategies of marine prokaryotes in the cold and oligotrophic ecosystems of sub-Arctic and Arctic ecosystems.
I research about measures to restore and rehabilitate watercourse ecosystems affected by human activity.
I work with administration and managerial support at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science and Umeå Marine Sciences Centre.
I'm a soil ecologist with a strong focus on priming effect.
Research focus on the dynamics of long-term environmental changes. Deputy head of department responsible for undergraduate education.
My work is primarily seeking to understand how lakes function and their role in the carbon cycle and feedback to climate.
My work focuses on the linkages between aboveground and belowground communities, how these drive ecosystem functioning, and how they interact with drivers of global change.
Doctoral student in physical geography with a focus on biogeochemistry in watercourses.
Web master at EMG.
I am investigating the effects of variations in the visible light spectrum in seawater on phytoplankton on both community and species levels.
Ecosystem ecologist with a focus on belowground plant ecology in tundra and peatlands.
Researching carbon cycling in Swedish old-growth forests
Understanding the fundamental mechanisms of photosynthesis in the coastal marine environment, and its application towards achieving sustainable conservation.
My work is mainly focused on biogeography and phylogenetics, here on Scots pines.
My research focus on impacts of climate change on the biogeochemistry and ecology of boreal and arctic aquatic ecosystems.
I study aquatic ecology and biogeochemistry in northern lakes and coastal ecosystems, focusing on benthic processes.
I'm a researcher and teacher within the field of environmental science.
My research focus on marine bacteria and their influence on the environmental status in the Sea.
A terrestrial ecologist working on belowground response to grazing and snow cover changes. I look at spatial & temporal dynamics of roots and the biochemical linkage.
Head of department, responsible for research and PhD-studies
Professor in environmental science
My research focuses on microbial processes related to the formation of methylmercury, as well as the potential use of microbial communities as bio-indicators of environmental pollution.
My research interest are (riparian) plant community composition and decomposition, for which I use the tea bag index.
Studying the influence of deciduous trees in riparian buffers of boreal streams on stream metabolism and aquatic communities.
Doctoral student in ecology with a focus on identifying ecological drivers that lead to the emergence of disease-causing bacteria.
Herbaria administrator, botanist and teacher in floristics.
Project Coordinator for the Climate Impacts Research Centre (CIRC).
Deputy head of the department with primary responsibility in mainly infrastructure, work environment and staff issues.
I am investigating the genetic and functional adaptation of bacteria to utilize different carbon substrates.
Researcher in fluvial geomorphology with focus on rivers and streams.
Postdoctoral fellow working on sedimentary ancient DNA to reconstruct human-ecosystem interactions over time
I do research on soil organic carbon, vegetation distribution, vegetation productivity, plant-herbivory interaction using GIS and remote sensing techniques in the Arctic and permafrost environments.
My research investigates the relationships between climate change and marine ecosystems with a focus on ecosystem service provision. I am the Director of Umeå Marine Sciences Centre.
I study size-dependent interactions within and between fish species and effects of fishing and climate change on population dynamics and ecological processes.
My research is focused on the effects of climate change on biogeochemical processes in terrestrial and aquatic environments above all in arctic and boreal environments.
I am a professor of environmental science and research on paleolimnology and environmental change. Since 2018, I am chairman of the employment committee at the Faculty of Science and Technology.
Professor of ecology who develops mathematical models for describing and understanding the dynamics of aquatic ecosystems
My research is investigating acclimation and adaptation of the coral holobiont. I mainly focus on the symbiotic community composition within coral reefs using bioinformatics tools.
Biological oceanographer specialized in phytoplankton ecophysiology. I work with research on the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems.
Teaching on courses that deals with ecology and the questions about how a sustainable society will be formed.
My research area focuses on how climate change induced stressors affect the food web quality and efficiency in the northern Baltic Sea.
My main interests are the multiple interactions between people and nature, including the effects of land use change and climate change. Most of my research focuses on sub-arctic and boreal systems.
My main research focuses on the evolutionary history of conifer trees in Eurasia.
I teach primarily on the Environmental Helth program, and do research on how metal contamination affect our ecosystems, with special interest in bird populations.
