PROJECT AREA A: EVOLUTION AND CLIMATE 

Research Interests
We work in the fields of systematics, phylogenetics, biogeography, and generally on the evolution of temperate and tropical flowering plants.

While the overall aim of BiK-F is to investigate spatio-temporal patterns and processes of organismic evolution in the view of climatological/ecological and geological changes over different time scales, the research topic  "Diversification and climate change" focuses on long-term diversification processes throughout the Cenozoic.
