Dr. Susanne Fritz

Head of Emmy Noether Research Group 'Macroevolution of birds and mammals'

Research interests

I am interested in the processes underlying large-scale biogeographic and phylogenetic patterns and their relationships with the abiotic environment in time and space. I have worked on ecology, evolution and conservation of mammals, amphibians and birds, and am now focusing on macroevolution and biogeography of living and fossil birds and mammals.

For more details on my research, please see the description on my working group’s page here
