The University Museum of Bergen is also participating in the Norwegian-Swedish Research School in Biosystematics.

Our staff has great expertise in the subjects evolutionary biology, taxonomy and phylogenetic systematics, faunistics and floristics. We also teach several subjects related to climate research and environmental change in a historical perspective, with emphasis on fossilised material like pollen, head capsules of mosquito larvae and skeletal remains of vertebrates.
