BNI and Stockholm University's Baltic Sea Centre is once again participating during Almedalen. This year, the Baltic Sea is in focus, and we will participate during 30 June - 4 July, presenting the Nest model and our latest finding in various seminars.
The Baltic Nest Institute is now launching its Twitter-account. Follow us on @BalticNest !
BNI researcher and food web expert Maciej Tomczak, has been granted support from the ICES Science Fund. The project, " 100 years of Baltic Sea changes ", will reconstruct the Baltic flounder stock biomass since 1906 with the aim of understanding the collapse of the stock and explain factors influencing its dynamics.
BNI researchers and their international colleagues report that the dead zones in the Baltic Sea have increased 10-fold over the last 115 years, growing from approximately 5 000 km² in 1900 to more than 60 000 km² in recent years. The study is published in the latest issue of PNAS, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Director of BNI Sweden , Bo Gustafsson , has been invited as one of the prominent speakers when HELCOM celebrates its 40th anniversary in Helsinki today.
The interdisciplinary project Regime Shifts in the Baltic Sea Ecosystem - Modelling Complex Adaptive Ecosystems and Governance Implications has now entered its final year. The articles published in the project up to date are now available on our web, many with abstracts or short introductions for easy access.
A new study was published in the November 2013 issue of Global Change Biology by a team of researchers from BNI Sweden and their international colleagues collaborating in the BONUS ECOSUPPORT project. Interested in what the combined effects of climatic changes and ecosystem drivers are on the food web in the Central Baltic Sea, this article investigates the interactions between climate, nutrient loads and cod fishing.
BNI researchers from BNI Sweden, Denmark and Finland contribute with several articles in a new special issue of AMBIO, which provides a synopsis of the results from the projects in the BONUS+ programme 2009-2011.
