BIOFLAME-BIOPEARL: BIOdiversity dynamics: Phylogeography, Evolution And Radiation of Life
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-PDC-00504

Abstract: Geological and biological sampling associated with recolonisation histories. BIOFLAME will study the DNA &fingerprints& of biological evolution to trace the way species adapt to environmental extremes . We will use state-of-the-art genomics technology to investigate the DNA of individuals, populations, natural communities and entire ecosystems, synthesising information across all these different ...

Purpose: Objectives include:
* Understand how the genomes of different species influence their responses to environmental variation and change at the level of individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems
* Find out how climate change influences biodiversity and affects important ways the ecosystem functions within the Antarctic and globally
* Determine the role of Antarctica and extreme environments in evolutionary change and the development of global biodiversity
