Phylogeny and picture

The common redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) consists of two highly diverged mitochondrial (mt) lineages (haplogroups), which co-occur and interbreed in Norway. Available evidence suggest that there is little divergence in nuclear genes between the two lineages.

This project aims to identify plants vulnerable to overharvesting, evaluating the sustainability of new foraging practices and develop guidelines for sustainable use. Target species will be selected, and desk and field-assessments performed by joining foragers on field trips.

The majority of animal phyla data back to the Cambrian explosion (ca. 540 MY ago). One of the most accurate ways to date biological events such as extinction and diversification is using the fossil record.
