Anders P. Tøttrup
Anders P. Tøttrup, Lektor
Natural History Museum of Denmark

My main research interests are within Conservation and Ornithology with a specific focus on studying migratory birds throughout their annual cycle. My main objective is to clarify consequences of different aspects of global climate and different nature management strategies to improve our understanding and ultimately develop knowledge-based conservation initiatives. I am also very interested in long-term changes at spatiotemporal scales driven by e.g. global change studying phenology and mortality as well as intra- and inter-specific interactions.

Ulf Jondelius
Ulf Jondelius, Professor
Swedish Museum of Natural History

My research interests are animal evolution and phylogeny and the diversity of marine microscopic invertebrates. In recent years I have focused on the worms in the groups Acoela and Nemertodermatida studying their position in the metazoan phylogeny as well as their taxonomy and biogeography using molecular phylogenetics, confocal microscopy and traditional histological techniques. As these animals need to be studied in vivo, I spend a few weeks every year at various marine biological labs.

Wenche EIkrem, Associate professor
University of Oslo

Experienced in taxonomy and identification of microalgae/protists including toxic algae using light, fluorescence, transmission and scanning electron microscopy and the isolation and culturing of algae. My work includes the description of several species new to science, ultra-structural studies of protists and development of preparation methods and protocols. Recently, I have started working with molecular techniques such as QPCR (Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction) and barcoding. I am also the curator of the Hasle diatom collection at the Natural History Museum in Oslo and editor of the micro-algal list at Artsdatabanken (www. Artsdatabanken.no). I teach microalgae and marine biology at both the undergraduate and graduate level at the University of Oslo (BIO1200, BIO4320, BIO4325). At present I am the principal supervisor of one PhD student and two master students and co-supervising one PhD and 6 master students. I am employed 60 % at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research as a research scientist and 40% at the University of Oslo as an associate professor sharing my time equally between the Natural History Museum and Institute of Biosciences.

Petra Korall
Petra Korall, Lecturer
Uppsala University

My research centres on the question "What impact has long-distance dispersal in shaping the biogeography of ferns and lycopods?". In our group we use phylogenetic, historical biogeographical and phylogeographical approaches to address questions on the evolutionary history of ferns and lycopods with a focus on distribution patterns.

Christine Bacon
Christine Bacon, Assistant professor
University of Gothenburg

My main interest is in the use of molecular phylogenies as a tool to study evolutionary and biogeographical patterns in time and space. I integrate phylogenies with ecological and geological information to understand biodiversity and diversification in tropical regions. I primarily work on palms (Arecaceae), but also actively works on Celastraceae plants in Madagascar and South America. I am an Assistant professor in the Antonelli Lab and is working on a variety of projects including reviewing the evidence for biotic migrations over the Isthmus of Panama in light of new geological and paleontological evidence, as well as examining speciation mechanisms in the Amazon.

Ellen Larsson, Associate Professor
University of Gothenburg

I am currently employed as a Senior Curator of fungi and my research is focused on the diversity, systematics and evolution of ectomycorrhizal agarics, particularly Inocybaceae and Hygrophorus. I did my PhD thesis on skin-like, corticioid fungi with russuloid characteristics and is currently also involved in projects on the taxonomy and systematics of the saprotrophic dark-spored agaric genus Psathyrella and the puffball family Lycoperdaceae. I use DNA sequence data to infer phylogenetic relationships among taxa and for tracing character evolution.

Daniela Kalthoff
Daniela Kalthoff, Curator
Swedish Museum of Natural History

I am a trained zoologist and palaeontologist and since December 2011 curator for the mammal collection at the Swedish Museum of Natural History. Key aspects of my research are mainly based on two methods which I apply to various mammalian groups (especially rodents): (1) microstructural analysis of tooth tissues in respect of systematics, phylogeny but also biomechanics; and (2) dental microwear analysis to evaluate dietary habits of extinct taxa as reflected by microscopic scars on the occlusal surfaces left by food items. Other research interests include use of morphometrics to study the taxonomic status of rodents and hares.

Dave Karlsson
Dave Karlsson, MSc
Station Linné

I graduated in systematic entomology at Uppsala University in 2003 (MSc), and the same year I started working as coordinator of the Swedish Malaise Trap Project. I was accepted as PhD-student in Uppsala late 2005, examining the morphology and systematics of diptera-parasitic braconid wasps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Opiinae). From 2006 I serve as the managing director of Station Linné in Öland (previously known as Uppsala University Ecological Research Station). Since 2007 I have been one of three permanent members of the expert panel in the weekly Swedish Radio show “Naturmorgon i P1”.
