    Sammanfattning : This research investigates different perspectives on the current forest bioeconomy investments in the north of Sweden. The research takes its stance from a broad definition of the concept of diversity, transecting both social and natural science, in its attempts to answer the thesis question: What suggested changes in forestry and forest governance follow from different visions of the bioeconomy transition, and what impacts do these have on aspects of diversity in the north of Sweden?
