ECOGEN - Ecosystem change and species persistence over time: a genome-based approach

Kick-off meeting in November 2016.

The ECOGEN project aims to improve knowledge of past plant distributions and to assess how Holocene landscapes have been affected by climatic, biotic and human drivers in Northern Norway and the Alps. ECOGEN focuses on the analysis of ancient DNA from lake sediment cores and the development of related methodologies.

The project is interdisciplinary, with collaboration between ecologists, palaeoecologists, archaeologists, geologists and niche modellers.

The project is funded by The Research Council of Norway (Topforsk) and based at Tromsø University Museum, UiT – The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø. It has collaborations with both national and international institutions.
