Research areas

We combine this knowledge to the ecology of flora and fauna to provide a unique set of nature-based solutions and restoration projects.

We investigate freshwater and marine ecosystems spanning on a wide range of topics including soil and sediment biogeochemistry, restoration of lakes, streams, wetlands, coastal habitats (saltmarshes, seagrass, blue mussels, stone reefs), and coastal areas as well as pelagic food-webs, benthic fauna- and fish ecology. We develop applications on the sustainable use of P in waste-water systems, harvesting of marine natural products and blue growth.

Climate adaptation projects consist of environmental sound solutions to rain-water basins and nature-based solutions to coastal protection.

Therefore, our research is divided inot 8 main themes:

Our global goals

The research in Ecology group is strongly focused on the 3 Sustainable Development Goals:

  • 13 - Climate action
  • 14 - Life below water
  • 16 - Life on land

We provide evidenced-based knowledge and solutions to tackle losses of biodiversity, habitats, climate and societal challenges.
