Scholarship in Sweden

I spent one month from mid-January to mid-February 2013 at the University of Kalmar (Sweden) to learn the theory of quantitative reconstruction of past vegetation. It consisted in courses and practical work to get used to the models developed by Shinya Sugita (including the models REVEAL and LOVE, as well as the Landscape Reconstruction Algorithm). This was the opportunity to apply these models to my data and represent so far the first attempt in the Alps.

This scholarship has been funded by a grant from the International Relations Office of the University of Innsbruck. I greatly thank Daniela Festi for providing alpine data on which to try the models, as well as Shinya Sugita, Marie-José Gaillard, and Laurent Marquer for providing me help on using Shinya’s models.

Ended in Februar 2013
