Plant Systematics and Biodiversity

Current events.

Workshop August ´13.

Activities in the Botany building

Historically, botanical research in Gothenburg focused on Neotropical taxonomy, angiosperm biosystematics and systematics of corticoid fungi. Along with development of molecular systematics in the 1990s these research programs gradually evolved into their present form addressing topics such as phyloinformatics, biogeography, molecular ecology, and biosystematics, the latter incorporating models from population genetics. Plant and fungal collections in Herbarium GB and Gothenburg Botanical Garden are important assets for the group.  High-throughput sequencing forms a much-used research implement in many ongoing projects in the group, and a Linux cluster, Albiorix, for data analysis is maintained. Applied research on bioaerosols, their dispersal, health impacts, and monitoring techniques is also part of the research area.
