Geo-Ecology research group (GEco)

The GEco group, led by Rune Halvorsen, aims to integrate biological, ecological and geological knowledge, as well as the varying effects of human influence on nature.

(calendar in full)

No activities planned currently.

Broadly speaking, members of GEco are interested in describing patterns of variation in nature, understanding the processes that generate them, and facilitate practical use of ecological knowledge to the wider benefit of society. Through research of high international standard, GEco will be a driving force for geo-ecological analyses and modelling. Important shared GEco values are: a sense of curiosity, engagement, openness, and willingness to share knowledge and data.

GEco focuses on integrative research, with respect to methods and approaches, research fields, spatial and temporal scales, biodiversity levels and groups of organisms, in search for insights beyond those that can be achieved by studies with more limited scope. 

Two central, long-term projects are NiN and GBIF.
