Jane Uhd Jepsen

Ecologist with expertise in northern populations and ecosystems, in particular plant-herbivore interactions in sub-arctic birch forests and the forest-tundra ecotone. Among my main interests are studies of the spatio-temporal dynamics of outbreaking geometrid moth species, and the effects of insect outbreaks on forest ecosystems. I am an experienced used of GIS and remote sensing in population and landscape studies.
