Biodiversity

Our research in biodiversity is focused on biodiversity in Swedish agricultural landscapes. Among other we have studied biodiversity in semi-natural grassland systems at the Island of Öland. We have used airborne hyperspectral data (Möckel et al. 2014) and high-resolution satellite imagery (Dalmayne et al. 2013).

Furthermore, we are, in collaboration with ecologists at the biology department, studying the impact of agricultural intensity on biodiversity of birds, butterflies, and other organisms. We use Sentinel-2 and MODIS data for estimating seasonality and farmland productivity.
