Editorial Board of Ornis Svecica

Editor-in-Chief 

Sören Svensson, Professor Emeritus
Department of Biology, Lund University
 
Sören has studied bird population change and distribution during more than sixty years, and also breeding performance and migration of several species. After the UN Stockholm conference in 1972 he was engaged by the Nature Conservation Agency to establish environmental monitoring in Sweden. In 1971 he joined the board of BirdLife Sweden and served as its president in 1982–1997. He also initiated the International Bird Census Committee and served as its first president. Sören has been Editor-in-Chief for Ornis Svecica in 1991–2019. After retirement from Lund University in 2002, he has continued long-term work with Starlings, and with bird and habitat change in Lapland.
 

Managing Editor 


Martin Stervander, PhD
Institute of Ecology and Evolution, University of Oregon

Martin is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Oregon, presently focusing on the evolution of the snout-like mouths of pipefish and seahorses. Whether fish or birds are the target, Martin's research makes use of modern DNA sequencing technology to understand what in the genome may explain differences between populations and species, and in the end leade to diversification.  Martin has a broad interest in ornithology, including e.g. taxonomy, migration ecologym and phenology.
 

Associate Editors 

Robert Ekblom, Assistant Professor
Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University

Robert has spent most of his scientific career on avian research, mainly in genetics and ecology. He has also had much focus in teaching on birds, for example as course leader for the courses “Bird Census Techniques” and “Vertebrate Faunistics”. Currently Robert works as a research engineer in the carnivore monitoring group, where DNA-analyses of wolverine samples are performed for the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.

Åke Lindström, Professor
Department of Biology, Lund University
 
Åke is a professor of animal ecology at the Department of Biology at Lund University. His main work is to track and explain the populations trends of Swedish birds. This is achieved through the project Svensk Fågeltaxering, a national environmental monitoring project funded by The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Other research interests include migration ecology, moult, and birds in arctic environments. Åke is also co-coordinating LUVRE, a broad ecological research program in Ammarnäs, in the Swedish mountains.

Jonas is a professor at the Linnaeus University in Kalmar, where he heads a research group studing bird-borne infections, among others avian influenza virus. The research spans ecology, epidemiology, viral and bacterial evolution as well as avian migration ecology studied by cutting-edge GPS trackers. Jonas is also the chair of Ottenby Bird Observatory, and a connoisseur of Swedish science fiction from the 1970s.
