Teaching 

#SAPIENZANONSIFERMA Due to the on-going national sanitary emergency, class lectures are given in mixed mode - in person and remotely in synchronous mode using the platform Zoom which is accessible at https://uniroma1.zoom.us for anyone who owns a user of the @uniroma1.it or @students.uniroma1.it domain.

Students who wish to follow my courses which starts all in March 2022 should register to the platform Moodle e-learning (see to the right) where they will find the Zoom links. Information relating to each course is communicated to registered students before the start via Moodle e-learning.


Courses start

Sistematica e conservazione della flora/ Advanced molecular methods applied to cultural heritage/ Fitogeografia: March 2022

Reception times

Monday, Wednesday & Friday (11.00 – 12.00). Please contact me by email before coming (laura.parducci@uniroma1.it)



 

My research profile 

I am a plant molecular ecologist with a passion for ancient DNA studies. I am interested in studying how plants adapted and changed their genetics and distribution ranges in response to climate. In my group we use ancient environmental DNA extracted from lake sediments to identify plant taxa, but also modern DNA from contemporary populations to understand their current genetic relationships and history. To increase the taxonomic resolution of our plant identifications in lakes, we are developing molecular techniques based on the shotgun sequencing and hybridization capture approaches. 

Since 1994 I have worked in Sweden at Uppsala University and from November 2019 I returned to Italy where I am Associate Professor at Sapienza University of Rome. I have a BSc/MSc degree (1991) in Agricultural Sciences, a PhD (2000) in Forest Genetics and a Swedish 'Docentur' (2012) in Plant Ecology.

 

In my group we study the ecology and evolution of plant populations: how genetics, demography and ranges of plants have changed during the climatic events of the last thousands of years. Over the past plants have persisted through long periods of climate change including several glacial and interglacial periods. Pollen and macrofossil records from lake and peat archives show how plant populations changed their ranges in response to changing climates and suggest also how some tolerant species may have behaved differently and even survived at high latitudes during glaciations. Plant populations have also changed sizes and genetic composition due to drift and adaptation to new environments while they migrated. We use modern DNA from living plants and ancient DNA from pollen, macrofossils and sediments from lakes and peatlands to investigate all these changes.
