About Johan Uddling Fredin

Research: I seek to understand the interactions between plants and their environment, in particular the atmosphere. I’m especially interested in how changes in the environment affect trees and crops and processes in their ecosystems (e.g. hydrology, productivity, species composition). My research is mostly based on ecophysiological field studies but also includes different types of data synthesis and modelling. These are three of my most important overall research questions: • How does climate change influence tropical trees and forests (see • How are plants affected by elevated levels of carbon dioxide and ground level ozone? • How do trees cope with the harsh urban environment and how do they influence the local climate?

Commissions (selection): • Member of the Faculty Board of the Faculty of Science • Work environment representative • Member of the advisory board for biodiversity and ecosystem services of the Swedish EPA

Teaching: • Teacher on several basic and advanced level courses within plant biology and environmental science • Course leader on the advanced courses Global change: problem, analysis, measures (ES2613) and Plant ecophysiology in a global change perspective (BIO506) • Coordinator for the master program Environmental sciences (N2MVN)
