About the Course
In this M.Sc. course, you will learn about plant and animal ecology in boreal forests in Nordic countries. Students will learn about the impact of climate and geology in forming of the boreal ecosystems in Nordic countries. It addresses the human impact on the boreal forest ecosystem and the economic importance (both past and present) of forestry. During seminars, it will be discussed different measures to increase the biodiversity and resilience to perturbations in the boreal forest ecosystem. Student will also learn and discuss how to evaluate the possible effects of a changing climate on the ecological interactions in the Nordic Boreal forest ecosystems. The course also includes a deeper discussion on how different anthropogenic actions, like forestry, can have on the biological diversity and how this may change ecological interactions in the boreal forest. In seminars it will be discussed how populations of different plants and animal species are regulated in natural forests, and their functions as ecosystem providers and how it may change in a changing climate.
PrerequisitesBachelor of Science degree in Biology, Horticulture, Agriculture or equivalent education and English 6.
