My PhD project focuses on constructed and restored wetlands and their biodiversity. The aims of the project are to investigate the effects of the characteristics (i.e. size, mean depth, shoreline length and age) of the agricultural constructed wetlands on vegetation and on waterbirds. I also study the effects of land use and habitat connectivity of the constructed wetland site on waterfowl diversity, densities and breeding success. Moreover, I study what are the landowners´ motives to apply EU-subsidies for wetland construction and how cost efficient they are. My supervisors are Panu Halme, Atte Komonen and Riikka Paloniemi.
