Anne Loosen

My name is Annie Loosen and I am a PhD candidate at the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences in the tiny town of Evenstad, Norway. I started my PhD program in March 2018, looking at drivers of moose browsing and habitat use in the context of forage availability, winter severity, human disturbance, and predation risk. This is a fairly well-studied topic in ecology, yet there are still gaps. We have “long-term” data from experimental and control plots at a fine spatial scale with and without natural predators (wolves, bears). In using this data set, we are hoping to add new insight into plant/herbivore interactions, predator/prey interactions, and potential side-effects to commercial forestry. I am a recent transplant to Norway from North America and of course living in Norway, it is a requirement to love skiing, hiking, etc.
