Landscape Genomics Group
Welcome! The Landscape Genomics Group at Nord University aims to understand local adaptation and adaptive potential in natural, human-disturbed and exploited populations. To do so, we study the evolutionary ecology and population genetics of various organisms across large and ecologically diverse landscapes. The results help us to determine how organisms persist, adapt to different environments, and diversify.
