5 June 2020The graduate research schools ClimBEco and the Bolin Centre Climate Research School (CRS) have recently initiated a collaboration with multiple climate-focused intentions. The joint activities will strengthen the course curriculum and network possibilities for the respective PhD students and contribute to the advancement of the climate and biodiversity research front.
27 May 2020A study from Lund University indicates that the flora of Skåne in southern Sweden changed drastically throughout the 1900s and up to the present day. The greatest decline in species diversity can be seen in forested areas in the northern and central parts of Skåne. “I was surprised that climate change has had the biggest impact”, says researcher Torbjörn Tyler of Lund University.
6 May 2020We appreciate your participation in the online conference, which was a very successful joining of about 100 participants.
22 April 2020If you exhale on a clear day in the clean, cold air of the Arctic, you will not see your breath form the cloud we are used to seeing when the temperature drops. The reason for this is that the cloud cannot form without aerosol particles. Moa Sporre, researcher in nuclear physics at Lund University, focuses on how these particles affect cloud formation and how the clouds, in turn, affect the climate.
28 February 2020Edith Hammer at CEC and the Department of Biology has been named as a Future Research Leader of the Foundation for Strategic Research. She is one of twenty researchers who receive 12 million SEK from the foundation for five years to work on a research project.
14 February 2020How do you feel when you spend a large proportion of your waking hours noting facts about a planet in crisis? What is it like when every day you take a long, hard look at issues concerning global warming and the loss of biodiversity? Quite OK despite everything, is the answer when the question comes up during the ClimBEco graduate school’s winter meeting where climate psychologist Frida Hylander is the guest speaker. At doctoral student level, they seem to have got past the worst climate anxiety.
3 December 2019Many farmers are positive to measures beneficial for biodiversity and the environment. But bureaucracy and regulatory hassle often stand in the way, says Lovisa Nilsson in a new dissertation, while also calling for better financial incentives for the individual farmer to choose the best environmental measures.
14 November 2019Today, 15 November, we celebrate Philanthropy Day. In connection with this, Lund University would like to extend its warm gratitude to you for having shown an active interest and for supporting our activities.
11 November 2019A forest management method different to those practised today would contribute to greater welfare and wellbeing for society in general, compared with current methods that mainly benefit the forestry industry. This has been shown in a new study by two researchers from Lund University in Sweden.
6 November 2019Protecting, planting and restoring coastal ecosystems has attracted increased attention as a way of capturing and storing carbon in mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrass meadows. In her dissertation, Terese Thoni has investigated the importance of these ecosystems in relation to the political climate negotiations.
