Towards policy-relevant ecology

There is increasing pressure on natural ecosystems worldwide and in Norway. Ecological science can inform decision making as well as improve policies for mitigating pressures, but how often is such information being used?

Thereafter, we open for the public and ask how Norway’s policy arenas invite and use ecological science.
