Bergslagen (LTSER platform) - Sweden
Site Description
Bergslagen is an informal region in south-central Sweden (ca. 59–61º N latitude, 13–15º E longitude). The history of industrial natural resource use began with production of metals more than 2000 years ago. The name Bergslagen comes from the words mine (berg in Swedish) and law or team (lag in Swedish). The landscapes of Bergslagen form a gradient between urban areas in Mälardalen with temperate forest remnants in agricultural settings, and rural remote boreal forest regions. Bergslagen includes parts of nine counties, and all municipalities and communities in its core has a peripheral location in relation to regional centres of economic growth.
