Islands, arthropods and plants – using the archipelago to understand fundamental biodiversity patterns

Species living on islands in the Baltic Sea are strongly affected by the proximity of the water, and by the fragmented structure of archipelagoes. In many ways, shorelines are a unique habitat that benefit many terrestrial plants and animals. Islands in the archipelago provides an excellent system for studying effects of functional connectivity between fragmented habitats. This seminar will discuss both the unique connections between sea and land, and the effects on the coastal system, and the role of island habitats for terrestrial species.​

Prof. Sara Cousins, Department of Physical Geography
Prof. Peter Hambäck, Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences

16.00–16.45: Baltic Seminar, lecture room P216
