About Louise Eriander

Research
My PhD project in the field of marine ecology focuses on questions relating to management and conservation of eelgrass ecosystems along the Swedish west coast.
In the last 20 years approximately 60% of eelgrass beds have vanished from the Swedish northwest coast. The causes responsible for the large loss are not fully understood, and it is not clear if the conditions would allow eelgrass growth in these areas today. In collaboration with a PhD student from environmental law the aim of the project is to:

Identify the legal and biological causes to the present loss and lack of natural recovery of eelgrass
dentify environmental threshold conditions for eelgrass survival and potential feedback mechanisms that prevent the return
Develop cost effective methods for large-scale restoration of eelgrass ecosystems
Assess the legal and ecological constraints and possibilities of compensatory mitigation
Develop an alternative preventive and reparative legislation that better meet the EU Directives of no further degradation of marine habitats.

Supervisors: Per-Olav Moksnes (Main supervisor) and Lena Gipperth
