He is a Senior researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences & Scientific Curator at Gothenburg Botanical Garden
Henrik Sjöman´s work is mainly focusing on developing knowledge of site adapted plant use for urban environments. How the capacity of different trees will vary in context to its urban environment and in delivering ecosystem services has become the prime driver in Henrik’s work and as such how to extend the knowledge of diversifying the urban treescape. Finding “plants of tomorrow” means to combine traditional plant hunting of less common species with research and evaluation; creating a diversified approach to a resilient urban forest for a future climate.
Henrik is one of the speakers on the Trees in Climate Change-webinar on the topic: «How is climate change affecting our trees? Can we «switch» to other trees?»
