Research interests in our research group

Boreal Ecosystems Research Group (BERG) is a multidisciplinary research team with broad research interests. We aim to understand how to reconcile biodiversity conservation with increasing demands of natural resources in boreal landscapes under intensive management. We try to identify the ecological, economic and functional values of the landscape, which should be taken into account in planning and decision-making.
