(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      In order to understand species’ sensitivity to habitat change, we must correctly determine if a species is associated with a habitat or not, and if it is associated, its degree of specialization for that habitat. However, ...
    • At which spatial and temporal scales can fungi indicate habitat connectivity? 

      Nordén, Jenni; Åström, Jens; Josefsson, Torbjörn; Blumentrath, Stefan; Ovaskainen, Otso; Sverdrup-Thygeson, Anne; Nordén, Björn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Isolation of habitats in space and time affects species globally and in a multitude of ecosystems. It is however often difficult to assess the level of isolation from the point of view of the focal species. Indicator species ...
    • Evaluating the use of local ecological knowledge (LEK) in determining habitat preference and occurrence of multiple large carnivores 

      Madsen, Emily K.; Elliot, Nicholas B.; Mjingo, Ernest E.; Masenga, Emmanuel H.; Jackson, Craig Ryan; May, Roelof Frans; Røskaft, Eivin; Broekhuis, Femke (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Understanding habitat preferences and distribution of threatened species is a cornerstone of conservation, however many of the techniques available can be resource intensive. One cost-effective method is by collecting ...
