Description
  • I worked under the supervision of Nils Cronberg within the field of bryology as a part time job during 2013 and 2014. I also worked as an assistant teacher for Håkan Wallander in 2014 and will again in spring 2016.

Description
  • Herbarium (bryophytes and vascular plants) and databases. Studies of the genus Draba; pond complexes; and bryophytes in Surtsey. I also participated in several other research groups, my input was mostly fieldwork but also identification of plant material.

The island Surtsey was formed in a volcanic eruption south of Iceland in 1963–1967 and has since then been protected and monitored by scientists. The first two moss species were found on Surtsey as early as 1967 and several new bryophyte species were discovered every year until 1973 when regular sampling ended. Systematic bryophyte inventories in a...

Background/Question/Methods Due to an ever increasing demand for so called clean energy, geothermal areas around the globe are being utilized for power production in an increasing way with unforeseeable consequences. Geothermal ecosystems can without doubt be regarded as unique systems. The effluents from geothermal areas often harbor distinctive...

Draba incana L. (Brassicaceae) is an arctic-alpine species which is both common and widely distributed in Iceland. All specimens of Draba (and Erophila) in the ICEL and AMNH herbaria – a total of about 1,200 specimens – were examined, and no major changes in taxonomic identification were made. Living plants were collected in this study: nine from n...

Surtsey emerged from the sea south of Iceland in an eruption in 1963. Since then the development of the island, both biological and geological processes have been closely monitored, including the succession of bryophytes. I visited Surtsey in 2008 after bryophytes had been more or less neglected for over 30 years and now again in 2018, this time with bryologist Nils Cronberg. In addition, we visited one of Surtsey's older siblings of similar origin to see what the future may bring. Our goal is to monitor the succession of bryophytes in Surtsey and to some extent be able to predict future development of the bryophyte communities in Surtsey.
