    The zoology research group aims to apply ecological parameters used for recent populations, to fossil populations
  • This attempt will generate a unique tool for predicting the impact of future climatic changes on recent lacustrine environments based on fossil data
  • changes in climate along the 100Ka sequence in the site of Gesher Benot Yaaqov will be detected by identifying changes in ecological parameters such as species richness, abundance, diversity, coexistence and biogeographic origin of fauna groups
  • using indicator species, the fauna paleohabitats and thr climate induced changes in fossil assemblages ecological parameters will be reconstructed
