Graciela Monica Rusch

Wide research interests on plant sciences, specifically on functional ecology, ecosystem function and ecological processes related to land-use, herbivory and the maintenance and management of biological diversity. Extensive international experience including research and consultancy projects in Europe, North America, South and Central America, and East Africa. Experience of project coordination including a number of international projects (Research Council of Norway and EU). A number of these projects are cross-disciplinary with components of ecology/biology and social/economic sciences. The work related to the projects have comprised own research, supervision of MSc and PhD students, consultancy and project coordination activities.

    Jarle Werner Bjerke

    • Research on climate effects, especially related to climate change and extreme weather events in boreal and Arctic areas;
    • Experimental studies for providing baselines for modeling og on-going and future ecosystem change due to climate change;
    • Grazing ecology, especially related to effects of reindeer and goose;
    • Anthropogenic effects, especially changes in land use (e.g. afforestation, industry, reduced outfield grazing) and air pollution, plus indirect effects via climate change, as listed above;
    • Evaluations of biological diversity
    • Taxonomy and systematics, especially on some lichen genera
    • Impact assessments prior to planned land use changes.
