Beautiful Jeløya was last week's destination for a GEco outing, looking for new field sites and discussing our ongoing and future research.
The project 'Terrestrial ecosystem-climate interactions of our EMERALD planet' had its kickoff meeting last week in the historic Domus Academica in Oslo.
Introduksjonskurs til NiN som system og for kartlegging ble holdt på Blindern 12.-13. mars. Vi har fått gode tilbakemeldinger fra de rundt 140 deltagerne.
GEco is involved in two newly funded projects that relate to feedbacks in the climate system: an eXtension of LATICE, and EMERALD; "Terrestrial ecosystem-climate interactions of our EMERALD planet".
A new PhD fellow in GEco - Eva L. Eriksen - will be working on dynamic ecological modelling. The PhD project will focus on the spatial dynamics of plants in relation to climate change, as a part of GEco’s collaboration with the LATICE network and the recently funded EMERALD and INCLINE projects. Professor Olav Skarpaas is the main supervisor.
Natur i Endring-prosjektet har rekruttert hvermannsen til å forske på tre- og skoggrenser rundt omring i Norge. Resultatene fra sommeren 2018 har nettopp blitt presentert, og Forskning.no har laget nyhetssak om prosjektet.
A new paper is available in the most recent edition of Kart og Plan. "Training of new field mappers: The ABC-method" is based on the master thesis by Hannah E. E. Haga, and written by her and Anders Bryn, Anne B. Nilsen and Heidrun A. Ullerud.
A new paper on error estimation in field assignment of land-cover types using the NiN system is now available. Based on the master thesis of Eriksen, the paper was authored by Eva L. Eriksen, Heidrun A. Ullerud, Rune Halvorsen, Sigrun Aune, Harald Bratli, Peter Horvath, Inger K. Volden, Anders K. Wollan and Anders Bryn.
A new paper, titled "Loss of semi-natural grassland in a boreal landscape: impacts of agricultural intensification and abandonment" has just been printed in the Journal of Land Use Science. It was written by Sigrun Aune, Anders Bryn and Knut Anders Hovstad. Read is (open-access) here!
Sommeren er over, men det skjer fortsatt mye spennende med folkeforskningsprosjektet Natur i Endring. Anders Bryn og Inger Kristine Volden har vært med på flere arrangementer i det siste:
This july, Metteline D. Larsen defended her Master thesis, titled "Changes after 25 years of abandonment in semi-natural hay meadows in Svartdal, SE Norway - a re-analysis".
Vitenskapelig råd for NiN har blitt (gjen)opprettet og hadde første møte 17. Oktober. Rådet skal sikre høy vitenskapelig kvalitet i arbeidet med NiN, og opprettelsen markerer en ny fase med intensivt arbeid med NiN.

This summer, Hilde Riksheim Tandstad defended her MSC thesis: "Vegetation-environment analysis of the transition between avalanche meadows and semi-natural grasslands in Nærøyfjorden, Western Norway". Her work points to gaps in the NiN system that should be addressed in revisions of NiN.
This summer, the position of hundreds of tree- and forest lines have been registered all over Norway, thanks to a citizen science app developed at NHM.
One of our students recently defended her MSC thesis, "A new method to quantify the accuracy of classification and spatial delineation in land cover maps". The method she developed is already being used by the GEco group to train students in vegetation mapping (BIO4120).
Heidrun has been a part of GEco the past four years, and on monday, June 18th she defended her thesis: 'Land cover mapping: methods and quality'.
Time and place: Sep. 14, 2018 9:00 AM - Sep. 20, 2018 5:00 PM, Field station at Lake Baikal, Russia
A new paper, authored by our PhD student Heidrun A.Ullerud together with Anders Bryn, Rune Halvorsen and Lars Ø. Hemsing has been accepted and is ready for publishing in Applied Vegetation Science.
Geo-økologisk forsningsgruppe (GEco) lanserer sammen med Institutt for biovitenskap emnet BIO4115 - Utbredelsesmodellering.
