Bridging the gap between plate tectonics, landscape evolution, and biodiversity

 

On geological timescales, plate tectonic and mountain building processes play a major role in shaping landscapes, especially in regions of high tectonic activity such as plate boundary zones. This project focusses on the tectonic and landscape evolution of South America, and studies how changes in landscape through geological time shaped modern biodiversity patterns.
