Lack of settlements threatens biodiversity

interview The national Swedish radio visited Lund to talk about pollinating insects and study their wintering sites.

Land use for a sustainable future

the globe CEC has been granted funding for a so-called collaborative initiative to find solutions for sustainable land use in Sweden, with emphasis in Skåne.

CEC Annual report 2018

fieldwork CEC is in an expansive phase and the number of doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and administrative staff increased during 2018.

Well managed forests can limit climate change

Researchers in the Norunda forest Growing forests can limit climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon in their biomass as they grow. How much carbon a forest stores varies between tree species, the forests age, weather conditions and how the forest is managed.

Environmental challenges must be addressed simultaneously

Skog Global environmental problems can be addressed by means of policy instruments such as carbon dioxide taxes, building and technology standards and support for new technology, but the issues are complex and several environmental challenges must be addressed simultaneously in order to achieve optimal effect. This is evident from the article Policy design for the Anthropocene published in the journal Nature Sustainability.

Iron from boreal rivers

winter Simon Herzog has studied what factors determine the fate of iron from boreal rivers and is now defending his thesis Fate of riverine iron over estuarine salinity gradients.

Soil security and economics

Mark Brady Soil security provides a framework for appreciating the importance of soils for planetary health and in turn human wellbeing.

Environmental change in the Arctic

Abisko Scientific Research Station The region is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth and its polar bears and melting glaciers have become key symbols of climate change. But the Arctic, it seems, is not as well researched as we think it is.

Standardized greenhouse gas measurement helps to predict and mitigate climate change

measuring equipment The Integrated Carbon Observation System, ICOS, announces that Norunda and additional 14 greenhouse gas measurement stations have been certified for standardized data production. ICOS data helps to reveal the carbon emissions and sinks on a European level, essential for predicting climate change and mitigating its consequences.

CEC strengthens the organization with new research funding

pollinating insects The Center for Environmental and Climate Research, CEC, received positive responses on research applications from both the European Research Council and Formas, why the organization can continue to develop and recruit both researchers and administrative staff during 2019.
