Maria Ingimarsdottir

Researcher

My research interests mainly focus on invertebrates and environmental changes, that is, how environmental changes affect invertebrate communities and how invertebrates affect their environment.

My background is at University of Iceland where I did my undergraduate and Master studies in biology. In my Master thesis I studied the “Effect of soil temperature on terrestrial communities of two geothermal areas in Iceland”. That study was performed in cooperation with the Icelandic Institute of Natural History and after the Master degree I continued to work there. I was involved in research on invertebrates in a number of projects, e.g. effects of afforestation on biodiversity (ICEWOODS), effects of grassfire on biodiversity and colonisation and succession on the volcanic island Surtsey.

In 2007 I moved to Lund to do my PhD studies at Lund University in cooperation with the Icelandic Institute of Natural History. I studied invertebrate colonisation and succession on nunataks (ice-free areas within glacier surroundings) in Iceland.

After my PhD I continued to work at Lund University. In the beginning my main task was invertebrate identification in studies on ecosystem services and diversity in agricultural areas. Currently I am working for SOILCLIM, a research project on managing soil biodiversity and ecosystem services in agroecosystems across Europe under climate change.
