Special fields

Professor in mammalogy. Research primarily related to Arctic marine mammals, in particular polar bears, walrus and bowhead whales. The studies are management oriented and related to movement patterns and distribution of populations. Many studies are related to effects of pollution in the marine environment. In later years the research has an increased focus on genetic analyse of ancient and present tissue samples in order to assess population structure. The research is also related to studies of systematic of terrestrial carnivores by application of craniometrical methods.
