WELCOME TO THE
FRONTIERS IN EVOLUTIONARY ZOOLOGY
a research group at the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, Norway
Key research questions of FEZ focus on biodiversity and systematics of mainly invertebrate groups using comparative approaches in an evolutionary and/or ecological context. Emphasis is usually on the marine realm, but also on terrestrial insects.
The main applications comprise of molecular biology, phylogenomics, and comparative genomics methods. We also develop new bioinformatics tools aiming at minimizing the impact of artificial signals on analytical procedures.
Last but not least, FEZ members are interested in the evolution of population and species differentiation with a particular interest in understanding cryptic species and the phenomenon of stasis.
