Ecological & Environmental Change Research Group

Ecological & Environmental Change Research Group ‒ EECRG

Bergen, Norway

The major research theme of the Ecological & Environmental Change Research Group is to study how, and why, natural ecosystems change over space and time. Its primary goal is to reconstruct the past, study the present, and model the future, and to study, quantify, and understand the natural variability of ecosystems and the multi-layered impact of human activity. EECRG uses a wide range or research methods, including field and laboratory experiments, ecological surveys, biogeographical approaches, paleoecology and paleoclimatology, and it analyses the collected data using quantitative and qualitative methods, predictive modelling, and spatial approaches. EECRG's research forms links between 'pure' and 'applied' science and it has relevance for biodiversity science, nature conservation and environmental concerns.
