Erling Johan Solberg
Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (NINA)
I am senior researcher at the Terrestrial department at NINA where I am mainly studying population ecology and habitat use of wild cervids (moose, red deer, reindeer, roe deer), with special emphasis on management related topics. I am the project leader of the national monitoring program for large cervids (moose, red deer, reindeer), which has been running since 1991.
My role in SUSTAIN
My contribution into the SUSTAIN project is to provide data (monitoring data, data from radio-collaring projects) and expertise in cervid ecology and management in Norway. In particular, I will focus on the interaction between moose and their food resources (trees), of which both belong to the economically most important resources in the boreal forest ecosystem.
