Staff profileArvid's doctoral research applies both social and ecological theory on the ecology and management of landscapes. Understanding large-scale patterns is important for the spatial planning of fragmented landscapes.
Land-use change alters the potential for species to disperse, and thus to survive in a region on long-term. Arvid uses network analyses to link landscape changes to the spatial conditions of biodiversity.
As an example he has studied the network of protected areas in Swedish forest landscapes. In the Stockholm region he has studied the application of spatial ecological knowledge in land-use planning.
Arvid is currently working on three projects
- Spatial ecological modeling of species in changing forest landscapes. How can logging practice change the spatial conditions for biodiversity?
- Integrated social-ecological networks. How do the network of cross-municipal collaboration correspond to ecological networks in the Stockholm region?
- Ecological knowledge in municipal land-use planning. How do local ecologists adapt and communicate ecological knowledge in the planning process?
Arvid holds a MSc in socio-technical systems and a BA in history and sociology of science.
