“Learning from the past to project the future” is at the core of RA 6. Evolution and Climate. As a strongly interdisciplinary research activity, our expertise ranges from genomics, next-generation sequencing and mammalian evolution to isotope geochemistry, paleontology and Earth Surface processes. The longterm interactions within the Earth system, the dynamic environments during the Cenozoic with their bursts of speciation and Earth Surface processes are our key targets in understanding the co-evolution of landscapes and life.
