Lars Gamfeldt: I am an associate professor in ecology at the Department of biological and evironmental sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. My main interests concern the causes and consequences of biodiversity. I currently work with freshwater rock pools as a model systems, in which small metazoans such as daphnids and copepods are the main players. I’m also involved in work synthesising the relationship between biodiversity and multifunctionality, across systems and organism types.
Jenny Egardt, PhD student: Jenny’s project is about outdoor recreation in marine protected areas, and its potential effect on the environment. As a case study she is using the newly founded marine national park, Kosterhavet, where she will map activities associated with outdoor recreation and their effects on shallow coastal areas.
