Biodiversity on different scales

My current research centres on the mechanisms involved in the maintenance or loss of biodiversity on different scales – from genes and populations to species and landscapes. Much of my work focuses on semi-natural grassland ecosystems and the cultural landscape on the Baltic island of Öland. The interdisciplinary “Jordtorp project” investigates spatiotemporal variation and community assembly in successional grassland communities. Also on Öland, the steppe-like Great Alvar provides a naturally replicated mosaic of grassland microhabitats that I use to investigate fine-scale local adaptation and population structure in grassland species. I have a long-standing interest in patterns of differentiation, hybridisation and evolution within the genus Silene.

Outdoors is best

Apart from being passionate about grasslands, I'm an enthusiastic gardener. Being outside is best – enjoying birding, fly fishing and nature in general. If I have to be inside, I read a lot and play around with paints and paper.
