Classification and Evolution

Systematics and taxonomy mean the study of the kinships inside and between groups of organisms and the naming of species. They play an important role in the research at Luomus. In zoology, entomology has the strongest foothold. The researchers studying spermatophytes and bryophytes participate in international projects investigating the species of tropical areas. Mycologists in turn have published a comprehensive guide on Finnish lichens.
