You remember door 3 of our calendar where we presented the UiO:LifeScience summer project of Liepa on the speciation of intertidal beetles? FEZ was very happy to house two further UiO:LifeScience summer projects this year. Morten Rese and Vegard Myrland Alvestad explored from different starting points how to […]

Summer project at rocky shores

Liepa Adomaityte, a Bachelor student associated with FEZ group, did her 2020 summer project studying speciation in a group of intertidal beetles distributed on both sides of the Northern Pacific. The (sub)genus Neochthebius (see photo of N. yoshitomii) is the only Northern Hemisphere lineage in the family Hydraenidae […]
