Visit by Kesara Anamthawat-Jónsson from the University of Iceland

Today the lab was visited by Prof. Kesara Anamhawat-Jónsson from the University of Iceland. Kesara delivered a fascinating talk about plant colonisation of the volcanic island of Surtsey, which lies about 20 km off the coast of the mainland of Iceland and was formed in a volcanic eruption in 1963. We also discussed Surtsey in the context of our lab’s work on island biogeography.
