Genetics, Ecologi and Evolution

The research at Genetics, Ecology and Evolution focuses on the evolutionary processes behind all life, from the origin of species to how they adapt to their surroundings. We study the mechanisms explaining the interactions between living organisms and the environment and investigate how animals and plants adapt to environmental and climate changes. Evolutionary research influences our understanding of the distribution and conservation of species.
