STUDENT SEMINAR. There is an alarming reduction in winter pastures and in the amount of lichens in the reindeer herding area of Northern Fennoscandia. Forestry is one of the contributing factors to shrinking pastures.

A recent report from Future Forests therefore investigated how reindeer husbandry and forestry affect each other. The authors Tim Horstkotte and Line Djupström will present and discuss the results in this student seminar at both Umeå Campus and Uppsala Campus, providing an opportunity for researchers and students to interact across Campuses.


  • To spread knowledge about reindeer husbandry and forestry, including challenges and opportunities for their respective land use
  • To provide examples of practices and reforms needed for shared land use
  • To strengthen the network and connections between SLU researchers and students at Umeå and Uppsala Campuses
