Since last year’s entry, I have yet to come to a conclusion on the origin of the Islandic beetle-fauna. All the collecting and lab work is done, what remains is the bioinformatic analysis. The dataset that was produced is fairly comprehensive, and hopefully there is possibilities to draw some conclusions.
Now, I could have written a long and extensive text about how we plan to do this bioinformatic work and discuss the most likely hypothesis. But seeing as it is the day before Christmas, I would much more like to post some nice pictures from my trip to Iceland.
I would, however, like to postulate one conclusion from my work: if one gets the opportunity to go to Iceland, go.
