      A 24,000-year record of plant community dynamics, based on pollen and ancient DNA from the sediments (sedaDNA) of Lake Bolshoye Shchuchye in the Polar Ural Mountains, provides detailed information on the flora of the Last ...
    • Last Glacial Maximum environmental conditions at Andøya, northern Norway; evidence for a northern ice-edge ecological “hotspot” 

      Alsos, Inger Greve; Sjøgren, Per Johan E; Brown, Antony; Gielly, Ludovic; Merkel, Marie Føreid; Paus, Aage; Lammers, Youri; Edwards, Mary E.; Alm, Torbjørn; Leng, Melanie; Goslar, Tomasz; Langdon, Cathrine; Bakke, Jostein; Van Der Bilt, Willem (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Andøya on the NW coast of Norway is a key site for understanding the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) in northern Europe. Controversy has arisen concerning the local conditions, especially about the timing and extent of local ...

      Bjune, Anne E.; Greve Alsos, Inger; Brendryen, Jo; Edwards, Mary E.; Haflidason, Haflidi; Johansen, Maren S.; Mangerud, Jan; Paus, Aage; Regnéll, Carl; Svendsen, John-Inge; Clarke, Charlotte L. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A detailed, well-dated record of pollen and sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA) for the period 15 000–9500 cal a bp describes changes at Lake Bolshoye Shchuchye in the Polar Ural Mountains, located far east of the classical ...
    • Sedimentary ancient DNA shows terrestrial plant richness continuously increased over the Holocene in northern Fennoscandia 

      Rijal, Dilli Prasad; Heintzman, Peter D.; Lammers, Youri; Yoccoz, Nigel; Lorberau, Kelsey; Pitelkova, Iva; Goslar, Tomasz; Murguzur, Francisco Javier Ancin; Salonen, J. Sakari; Helmens, Karin F.; Bakke, Jostein; Edwards, Mary E.; Alm, Torbjørn; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Brown, Antony; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The effects of climate change on species richness are debated but can be informed by the past. Here, we generated a sedimentary ancient DNA dataset covering 10 lakes and applied novel methods for data harmonization. We ...
