Palaeoclimate and Palaeoenvironmental Research


The main focus of the section is on

  • the quantitative, semi-qualitative and qualitative reconstruction of selected palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental parameters (e.g. vegetation)
  • the temporal and spatial dynamics of these parameters
  • fire-ecology of fossil ecosystems

The different projects cover the time span from the Late Palaeozoic up to the Cenozoic.
