Here you will find teachers, researchers, PhD students and administrative staff at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Sciences. Please note that there are two lists - for "employees" and for "affiliated staff".
My research concerns effects of environmental and climate change on the productivity and the food web structure of northern aquatic ecosystems.
Research focus on the dynamics of long-term environmental changes. Deputy head of department responsible for undergraduate education.
My research focuses on food webs, biodiversity and functioning of aquatic ecosystems.
Doctoral student in physical geography with a focus on biogeochemistry in watercourses.
PhD Student in terrestrial ecology.
Web master at EMG.
I study the ecology and evolution of freshwater fishes and climate effects of forestry
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.
Postgraduate student in ecology specializing in landscape genetics. Focus is to assess to what degree dams act as barriers for gene flow in riverine plants along regulated rivers.
Human Resources Officer and Work Environment Representative.
PhD student in ecology with focus on how salmon migration is affected by hydropower plants in regulated rivers.
PhD-student in environmental science with focus on heavy metal transport and ecosystem effects.
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. I am also director for Umeå Marine Sciences Center.
My research focuses on understanding the genetic basis of plant speciation.
Head of department, responsible for research and PhD-studies
My research interest are (riparian) plant community composition and decomposition, for which I use the tea bag index.
Herbaria administrator, botanist and teacher in floristics.
Project Coordinator for the Climate Impacts Research Centre (CIRC).
Assistant head of the department with primary responsibility in mainly infrastructure, work environment and staff issues.
Researcher in fluvial geomorphology with focus on rivers and streams.
PhD student focusing on ecology and biogeochemistry of stream ecosystems.
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.
I am an ecologist at the frontier between ecosystem and community ecology.
Research on microbial geoecology and astrobiology.
Working with investigating pollinating insects ecology with a focus around Honeybees in northern Sweden
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.
Professor of ecology who develops mathematical models for describing and understanding the dynamics of aquatic ecosystems
PhD student studying the effects of climate change on the productivity of northern lakes.
Teaching on courses that deals with ecology and the questions about how a sustainable society will be formed.
PhD student studying the effects of climate change on the production of fish in Arctic and subarctic lakes.
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.
PhD student with focus on rivers regulated by hydropower.
