Laura Parducci, Member

Associate Professor at the department of Environmental Biology, Sapienza University of Rome and guest researcher at Plant Ecology and Evolution, Uppsala University. Laura studies the ecology and evolution of forest plant populations: how genetics, demography and ranges of plants have changed during the climatic events of the last thousands of years. She uses modern DNA from living individuals and ancient DNA from pollen, macrofossils and sediments from lakes to investigate these changes.
