About me

My research focus is on the consequences of land use for biodiversity and ecosystem function. I am an ecologist with experience from forests in tropical, temperate and boreal biomes, plus heathlands and agroecosystems. My main themes are plant community ecology and landscape ecology and I enjoy some interesting side-projects in the ecology of insects and of grazing ungulates. Right now my main project is on grazing animals and ecological function in the Nordhordland Biosphere Reserve, as part of two wider projects on sustainable land management (https://www.uib.no/en/rg/EECRG/120534/tradmod and https://www.uib.no/node/122270).​
