  • Six DEEP researchers got VR and FORMAS this autumn 2019-12-04 The year is coming to its end and therefore we would like to high light all the researchers at DEEP that got VR and FORMAS grants this autumn. We at DEEP are really happy for this great achievement!
  • Tiny woodlands are more important than previously thought 2019-12-04 Small woodlands in farmland have more benefits for humans per area, compared to large forests, according to a new study. The small woodlands, sometimes even smaller than a football field, can easily go unnoticed in agricultural landscapes. Yet, these small forest remnants can store more carbon in the topsoil layer, are more suitable for hunting activities and host fewer ticks than large forests.

Photo: Joakim Hansen Freshwater survivor - the Perfoliate pondweed 2019-11-06 The perfoliate pondweed (Potamogeton perfoliatus) is a freshwater plant, relatively common in the brackish Baltic Sea. One can find it along the whole Swedish east coast. It is growing and flowering during the summer. Many of its shoots die off in the winter. However, it has a clever survival strategy, that often benefits more than one organism.
