Research interests

My research interest covers a wide diversity of methods, timescales, and topics. Among the most important are general aspects of pollen and plant macrofossil analysis, long-term ecology, vegetation history and future impacts on vegetation, climate change and climate history, tree-line changes, forest development, forest history, past and present pollen – vegetation - landscape relationships, biodiversity changes through time, landscape change, ecosystem resilience, human land-use and impacts on vegetation, and Antarctic, arctic and alpine ecology.
