Vigdis Vandvik

Vigdis Vandvik is professor of plant ecology at the University of Bergen in Norway and leader of bioCEED Centre of Excellence in Biology Education. Her research is focused on how major global change drivers — especially climate and land-use change — affect plants. Her research projects are also test-beds for developing effective ways of teaching and learning as integral components of "real" research. She is elected member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the Norwegian Technical Science Academy. She communicates science through a variety of channels, and is actively involved in the science-policy interface, for example as a coordinating lead author on the upcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services thematic assessment on Invasive Alien Species and their control  (IPBES-IAS).
