The ArcI tenure track programme includes five recruitment packages of a tenured principal investigator and for each appointed professor a start-up packages for hiring a postdoctoral fellow and a Ph
Snow melt runoff and groundwater abstraction are the most used form of fresh water globally, but the supply is diminishing throughout the world. The problem is expected to worsen with ongoing climate change. Professor Björn Klöve, Director of the Water Resources and Environmental Engineering unit at the University of Oulu, offers a scientific take on the issue.
Did you know that the autumn leaves falling into rivers and streams from trees are an important source of nutrition for aquatic organisms? The leaves are attacked by different kinds on zoobenthos, which shred and grind them for nutrition. Climate change is even expected to change the volume of the mass of leaves remaining in flowing waters: when the autumn precipitation still increases from the current level, the flow rates will increase and the leaves falling into rivers will be carried farther away than they used to be. This will change the water ecosystem as well.
Warming of the Arctic threatens the provision of key ecosystem services that rely on fundamental water, carbon and nutrient processes. This jeopardise traditional cultures and livelihoods and tourism. Understanding the global changes in the North and dealing with it in sustainable ways is important globally and crucial for Finland.
Researchers at the Universities of Oulu and Jyväskylä, together with their collaborators in the US and France, have shown that wild animals living in areas contaminated by radioactive material have a different community of bacteria within their digestive system (the gut microbiome) compared with animals that do not live in areas affected by an increase in radiation.

The neighbourly relationship between the European pied flycatcher and the great tit provides valuable information about behaviour between the species. Species living in the same area are not only in competition with each other, but also model their behaviour following each other’s example.
