About the Student Conference on Conservation Science - Nordic
Due to the current situation related to the corona virus and travel restrictions, the 1st SCCS-Nordic conference was moved to 2021. The new preliminary date is June 14-18, 2021.
1st SCCS-Nordic will be held at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), School for Forest Management in Skinnskatteberg, Sweden, from 14-18 June 2021.
Malin Aronsson, Department of Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) & Department of Zoology, Stockholm University
Malin is a young researcher (Ph.D. from SLU in 2017), currently working at SLU and Stockholm University. Her research interest lies in understanding what is influencing the density and distribution of animals, and how these characteristics are the result of multiple processes, from individual behaviour to population dynamics. Most of her research focuses on large carnivores in the boreal ecosystem, where she studies both intraspecific (e.g. territoriality and dispersal) and interspecific interactions (e.g. predator-prey, apex predator-mesopredator). Malin is also working within the Swedish Wolverine Research Project studying wolverine ecology to facilitate science-based management and conservation of wolverines in Scandinavia. Wolverines are re-colonizing their historical range in Scandinavia and Malin is now studying them in the forests around Skinnskatteberg.
Helen Kopnina, The Hague University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands
Dr. Kopnina, Helen (Ph.D. Cambridge University, 2002) is currently employed at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands. She is coordinating a Sustainable Business program and conducting research within three main areas: environmental sustainability, environmental education, and biological conservation. Helen is the author of over ninety peer-reviewed articles and (co)author and (co)editor of sixteen books.
Bengt Gunnar Jonsson, Mid Sweden University
Bengt Gunnar (Bege) Jonsson is professor in biology with focus on forest history, dynamics and biodiversity. Specifically his research concern the balance between forestry and conservation with studies ranging from the importance of dead wood to landscape level analysis of remnant old-growth forests. He is currently the President of the SCB Europe Section.
