81st Forest Industry Lecture
Land-sparing or land-sharing for functional ecological infrastructure that sustains human well-being? Multiple Pan-European landscapes as a natural experiment design
Dr. Per Angelstam
Per is a researcher with a great interest in knowledge production, communication and public awareness, as well as in encouraging dialogue, extension and collaborative learning processes with and among stakeholders at multiple levels.
Per received his BSc in 1976 at the University of Lund, and finished his PhD in 1983 from Uppsala University, in the Department of Zoology. Per worked as director at the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s research station Grimsö, and as senior researcher from 1992 to 2004 at the Departments of Wildlife Ecology, and later Conservation Biology, at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
In 1998 Per received awards from Oregon State University and the “Scientific Achievement Award” from the International Union of Forest Research organisations (IUFRO). During 2000-2003 Per created and led a landscape ecology group at Örebro University and became an honorary professor in “Wildtbiologie” at the Universität für Bodenkultur in Vienna, Austria.
In 2004 he moved to SLU’s Faculty of Forest Sciences and its School for Forest Management and awarded the title professor at SLU in “forest and natural resource management” in 2005.
Per’s research focuses on studies of management and governance of landscapes as social- ecological systems, and its consequences at multiple spatial and temporal scales. To understand and bridge barriers for implementation of policies on sustainable development and sustainability in actual landscapes, transdisciplinary natural and human science studies have been initiated in a dozen landscape-scale case studies in Fennoscandia and several in central and eastern European countries as well as in Russia.
Per’s research has resulted in:
- 160 peer-review articles,
- 40 book chapters,
- 80 conference articles,
- 60 reports, and
- 70 popular science publications.
