ecosystems. Important parts of the research aim to integrate terrestrial
and aquatic processes, to understand ecological dynamics and biogeochemical
cycles at various spatial and temporal scales, and to assess the impact
thereon of changes in climate or other environmental factors. Most of the
research activities are based at the Abisko Scientific Research Station and
the surrounding mountain region, www.emg.umu.se/english/research/circ/.
