Objective of the Project

The aim of the project was to enhance the cooperation between the partner organizations through the exchange of experience, common field studies, and education of post-graduate students in the field of forest entomology and ecology. Both partners, the University of South Bohemia and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, as well as the Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute, have been conducting long-term research in their respective fields and benefited from common research and educational activities. The benefits included the education of experts from both research staff and Ph.D. students and broadening the spectra of methodological approaches. Last but not least, studying the differences between Central European and Scandinavian populations of insects related to their latitudinal origin and response to the globally changing chmate improved our understanding of insect seasonal life cycles and outbreaks.
