Biosystematics and evolution
Avian research at the University Museum of Bergen is to a great extent focusing on questions related to evolutionary ecology of birds. Studies are carried out in the field or by comparative analyses
Research focus on biodiversity, systematics, biogeography and evolution of marine molluscs at a worldwide scale, with an emphasis on Heterobranchia gastropods
Our research foci lie on biodiversity, evolutionary biology and conservation with a special focus on Chondrichthyan fishes (sharks, rays and chimaeras).
Research and researchers in the gardens
Our staff are involved in various research projects, with main focus on systematics and evolution of the flowering plant families Rosaceae and Ericaceae.
We study insects, arachnids and myriapods, their diversity, evolution, and ecology with particular focus on bark beetles, true bugs, millipeds, spiders and mites.
Cnidaria and Ctenophora
We have a broad interest in the taxonomy, diversity, distributions, systematics, evolution, ecology, and general biology of medusozoan cnidarians and ctenophores in particular, but also other non-crustacean zooplankton.
