Welcome to Jani Heino's research site!

As an ecologist-biogeographer, I am interested in causes and consequences of biodiversity variation and environmental change at different spatial and temporal scales. My research addressess both aquatic and terrestrial systems, focusing on the drainage basin as the main level. At this level, various  biological, geographical, environmental and societal phenomena are acting and should be considered in management, monitoring, restoration and conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Living in the Oulu Region, I collaborate extensively with researchers in Finland and from across the world. Have a look at the map here, where some of my collaborators' laboratories are located.
