Arctic worming?

Arctic worming?

In North America, the spread of European earthworms is a known environmental issue as it has turned out that some of these species are capable of altering entire forest ecosystems. In Sweden, we have so far had a positive approach to earthworms and no policies have been put in place to limit the spread of these worms in Swedish national parks. A new study from Umeå University in North Sweden now shows that the Swedish approach may need revision.

Large grant to Umeå Institute of Design for research on how we are affected by our digital things

Since we can’t exactly ‘look under the hood’ anymore on all the digital things we use in everyday life, how do we know what these things are actually doing? And why do they seem to know so much about us anyway? A recent Wallenberg Foundation grant of SEK 4.5 million has been awarded to Umeå Institut...
