Here you will find information regarding changes and updates for the book ÅSNEN Nature, National Park and Wildlife in South Sweden.


Regarding the description of the hiking trail marked orange in Lunnabacken:

Part of the hiking trail goes outside the reserve boundary and is not in the condition it was while doing the inventory work for the book. Therefore, the walk may be experienced differently from the way it is described. In some places the signs are bad or missing altogether, and you might get lost on the trail. 


Regarding visits to Södra Aspö in Åsnen National Park:

There are future plans for a walking trail on Södra Aspö, but it is not yet finished. Please note that there is prohibited access to the island due to bird protection, and that it is prohibited to stay overnight.


The index, page 320:

Unfortunately, the page reference for Hericium coralloides is wrong. The correct page to read more about Hericium coralloides is page 26.

Government grants to local conservation projects were co-funders for the implementation of the first book project.
The English version of ’ÅSNEN Nature and National Park’ has been funded with funds from the European Regional Development Fund and Region Kronoberg.
