Wetlandscapes & Biodiversity

– Buffer, Biodiversity and Bees

Research on how constructed wetlands(CWs) function hydrologically in a river basin perspective and how hydrology and its interactions with wetland design, location and management affect the biodiversity in wetlands and at the landscape level, with focus on arthropods in terrestrial-aquatic boundaries and pollinators.

Currently we here present 4 ongoing projects were the group work together and where the study areas and research interests overlap. For more information on the projects select from the top menu. The projects are:

  • Wetlands as Buffers (Constructed wetlands as hydrological buffers – how to create a win-win situation with biodiversity conservation), financed by Naturvårsverket (SEPA)
  •  Managements of CWs (Managing constructed and natural wetlands for arthropod diversity in agricultural landscapes), financed by Formas
  • Wetlands 2.0 (Wetland 2.0 – upgrading freshwater habitats for bees), financed by Formas
  • LIFE-Goodstream (Good ecological status of an agricultural stream – introducing Integrated Buffer Zones in a holistic approach), Financed by EU-LIFE and Havs och Vattenmyndigheten (Swedish agency for Marine and Water management)
