Welcome to the seminar “Urban biodiversity: measurement and modelling challenges for a policy-relevant ecology”, where professor Olav Skarpaas (GEco group)  will present some ongoing work on biodiversity in Oslo.

Many cities are situated in areas with high biodiversity. Oslo offers an excellent example of this challenging combination of being both a human and a biodiversity hotspot. Olav will present methodological challenges as well as solutions to quantifying rare biodiversity elements and assess the magnitude of human impact. This involves uncertainties at several levels, but may serve as a starting point for defining and estimating reference states and building biodiversity and ecosystem accounts.

Time and place: Jan. 23, 2019 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Botanical Museum, Tøyen, Oslo

We are pleased to announce an exciting double seminar by two visiting bioinformatics scientists from the University of Helsinki:
