Systematik & biodiversitet

Biological systematics is the study of diversity in living and fossil organisms. The theory of evolution, which unifies modern biology, emerged from systematics. An important aim of systematics is to analyze and synthesize information derived from global biodiversity studies into a predictive classification system that reflects the history of life.

In Gothenburg, diverse eukaryotic organisms such as birds, clitellate worms, flowering plants, basidiomycete fungi, and many other groups are studied. Research questions span from why diversity patterns vary among the world’s biota to detailed studies of the evolutionary relationships among closely related species to gene family evolution. New tools for metagenomics and phylogenetics are being developed by researchers in the group to aid species identification, delimitation, and automatic generation of phylogenetic trees from public databases.

We have strong local infrastructures available for the generation of genome-wide DNA sequence data, bioinformatics, as well as a herbarium storing millions of plants, algae and fungi collected globally. We also cooperate with the Botanical Garden in Gothenburg and Gothenburg Museum of Natural History.
