Our Ongoing Research
Current research projects within the Palaeobiology Programme:
- Palaeozoic diversification of animal life
- Origins and early diversification of photosynthetic microbiota
- Phenotypic evolution of marine microalgae during the Cenozoic
- Molecular approaches to palaeobiology
- Mesozoic vertebrate macroevolution
- Human-nature interaction during Holocene
- Earth science educational research and communication
Uppsala University has one of the most comprehensive academic departments of Earth Sciences in Europe, according to international assessments. Its unique width in education and research, and its extensive global fieldwork, contribute to our knowledge about the properties, systems and development of planet Earth.
