Professor emeritus Jon Swenson has been awarded the Wildlife Society’s (TWS) Honorary Membership Award for his contribution to wildlife science and management. TWS is the world’s oldest and largest professional organization for wildlife biologists.
In his PhD, Ruben Roos has studied the ecology of vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens and micro-arthropods in alpine ecosystems and identified how it affects species turnover in an alpine ecosystem. His results illuminate how important intraspecific variation is as a driver of community-level traits in different primary producers.
The Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management (MINA) is the university's competence centre on nature and the environment, sustainable use of natural resources, biological and geological processes.
