The research and teaching of the environmental dynamics group deals with changes in the environment in time and space, whether these changes occur as a result of natural factors or as a result of human activities. The group works with: 

  • Processes on the large, global scale, such as climate change.
  • Processes on the ecosystem and population scale, such as the effects of environmentally harmful substances.
  • Processes on the molecular scale, such as stress-related gene expression, including how new types of organisms and forms of production can be utilised in biological production.

Much of the group's research is based on aquatic ecology, but the group also works in terrestrial ecology and physical geography. In particular, the group works in the following areas: 

  • Ecotoxicology and risk assessment
  • Plastic pollution
  • Nutrient cycles
  • Marine ecology
  • Marine biogeochemistry
  • Plankton ecology
  • Plant ecophysiology
  • Biological production based on copepods and microalgae
  • Soil processes
  • Erosion processes.

A large part of the group’s research is application-oriented, and takes place in close collaboration with external partners in all categories: e.g. authorities, institutions and companies.
