Beyond Moose: community ecology of Sweden’s novel diverse ungulate communities
Sweden’s ungulate communities have changed dramatically, resulting from introductions of non-native (e.g., fallow deer) and native ungulates (e.g., wild boar) and expansion of ranges northwards beyond historic distributions due to milder winters. We lack a comprehensive understanding of the functioning of these novel diverse ungulate communities in landscapes modified by humans. The Swedish EPA has funded our program “Beyond Moose” to increase this understanding and to move from single- to multispecies wildlife management. This also feeds into the international discussion on how to manage increasing ungulate communities throughout Europe and North America. The PhD will study trophic interactions among species, and effects on individual and population performance, for varying ungulate community compositions and along gradients of land use practices. The project combines field methods with state of the art DNA tools. Results will be crucial for finding trade-offs among competing ecosystem services such as game meat and recreation from hunting vs. fiber from forests and food from crops. The PhD student will closely collaborate with an advertised PhD position in the Governance project that focuses on social dimensions of multi-species wildlife management.
