new TRACES PhD working on pollen in SP3 with Frank Neumann and Marion Bamford! Angela Effiom is currently running her PhD in Palaeontology at the Evolutionary Studies Institute (ESI), University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. Her research interests focus primarily on the reconstruction of past vegetation and inference of past climate using pollen grains and spores. Another research field is the application of pollen morphology, spore morphology and foliar epidermal anatomy in plant taxonomy.
initial radiocarbon dates are finally available so that preliminary age-models for the sediment archives may be developped!
our labs are processing the huge samples sets obtained during our 2018 field campaigns.
