Land use and management influence on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Part of the strategic research area BECC, a co-operation between Lund University and GU. My research focus on drained peatlands and how land use influence GHG emission. Field measurements; Skogaryd, Anderstorps stormosse and Ånnsjöns myr. Model estimations of emissions from forests in Sweden and Finland together with grasslands in Norway. Close contact with stakeholders from state authorities, companies and nature conservation organisation is part of the work.
