We accumulate, analyse and disseminate information concerning the species and habitats occurring in Sweden. We are one of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences formal collaborative centres.
Most of the work conducted at SLU Swedish Species Information Centre fits into Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences program for Environmental Monitoring and Assessment, focusing on the long term goals of sustainable development expressed by the Parliament in, e.g., the Swedish Environmental Objectives. We work with commissions from the Government and other authorities within the field of Swedish biodiversity, frequently in cooperation with various NGOs. We also conduct research in the fields of Ecology and Conservation.
