Peatland and Soil Ecology Research Group

Our research focuses on vegetation – soil processes and their GHG impacts and on peatland vegetation dynamics.

Our research group is based at the School of Forest Sciences, University of Eastern Finland.

Plant resistance ecology

The research group studies the effects of climate change, such as increased temperature or UVB radiation on woody species. Especially the research is focused on carbon allocation to plant growth and chemical defense. In addition, plant bioactive compounds and their industrial refining are studied.
