• Clitellate worms (Annelida) in late-glacial and Holocene sedimentary DNA records from the Polar Urals and northern Norway 

      Lammers, Youri; Clarke, Charlotte; Erséus, Christer; Brown, Antony Gavin; Edwards, Mary Elizabeth; Gielly, Ludovic; Haflidason, Haflidi; Mangerud, Jan; Rota, E; Svendsen, John-Inge; Alsos, Inger Greve (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-26)
      While there are extensive macro‐ and microfossil records of a range of plants and animals from the Quaternary, earthworms and their close relatives amongst annelids are not preserved as fossils and therefore the knowledge ...

      During the last glacial–interglacial cycle, Arctic biotas experienced substantial climatic changes, yet the nature, extent and rate of their responses are not fully understood1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Here we report a large-scale ...
    • 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 ...
