New director for the Erken Laboratory


On April 1, Silke Langenheder was appointed new Director of the Erken laboratory, the field station at the lake Erken, 70 km north-East of Stockholm. The Erken laboratory is part of the Evolutionary Biology Centre (EBC) of Uppsala University and since 2013 a member of the Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Science, SITES.

What are your visions for Erken?
‘I think this focus on research within a major infrastructure is excellent. I also think it’s important that we are flexible and offer the researchers visiting us the opportunity to work not only in Erken but also in other surrounding lakes and with other types of ecosystems.’
