Jens Christian Svenning

Professor, Department of Bioscience (Ecoinformatics & Biodiversity)

Jens-Christian Svenning is an ecologist, who works broadly with the field and beyond, into adjoining fields such as evolutionary biology, geography, and anthropology. Much of his work is focused on geospatial ecology to address questions such what determines species distributions, what drives geographical gradients in ecological community structure and biodiversity, what is the role of climate, and how might future climate change re-shape ecological systems and biodiversity patterns? Human activities now increasingly dominate the world, and Jens-Christian Svenning also has a strong interest in how humans how already shaped biodiversity and ecological patterns as well as the potential for human-biodiversity coexistence in a human-dominated world.
