Snorre B. HagenEcology, population genetics, conservation biologyI work with animal populations in several taxa, including various large carnivores, insects and fish. I am particularly interested in how and why wildlife populations change in numbers and genetic composition in time and space. For example, I am interested in understanding the influence on populations habitat fragmentation, climate change, and management strategies.

Margareta JohanssonPermafrost dynamics and permafrost and vegetation interactionLowland permafrost in northernmost Sweden is located at the boundary of where permafrost can exist. It is hence very sensitive to ongoing climate change. I am monitoring the development of the so call active layer and ground temperatures around Abisko. In addition, I have an experiment telling about what will happen in the future with permafrost when the area is likely to receive more snow.
