RELATING BIODIVERSITY PUMPS WITH ECO-CLIMATIC VARIATION
a ground-breaking study was
by correlating age
grouping of bird DNA
10 years of daily NOAA AVHRR data covering Africa. The preliminary result
showed a clear relation between evolution of young species
and recent eco-climatic
variability, the result is used for
identifying new sites for biodiversity research.The study was made in co-operation with Danish Centre of Biodiversity and
EU - JRC, Ispra.
