  1. 1. Lejarfjället Garnet(?) Peridotite – Origin and Petrological Characterization of Symplectitic Aggregates in Ultramafic Rocks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mineralogi, petrologi och tektonik

    Author : Felicia Eriksson; [2022]
    Keywords : ultramafic; high-pressure metamorphism; peridotite; garnet breakdown; Scandinavian Caledonides; ultramafisk; högtrycks metamorfos; peridotit; granat; skandinaviska kaledoniderna;

    Abstract : Ultramafic rocks are abundant in the Earth’s mantle but rare on the surface. Since no in-situ samples from the mantle can be collected, mantle rocks provide knowledge of mechanisms operating in the mantle and large-scale processes that brought them up to the surface. READ MORE

  2. 2. Estimating the Early Evolution of Brachiopods Using an Integrated Approach Combining Genomics and Fossils

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Paleobiologi

    Author : Chloé Robert; [2019]
    Keywords : Brachiopoda; evolutionary history; phylogeny; Maximum likelihood; Bayesian inference; fossil calibrations; Brachiopoda; evolutionhistoria; fylogeni; Maximum likelihood-metoden; Bayesiansk statistik; fossilkalibering;

    Abstract : The Brachiopoda, a major group of the Lophotrochozoa, experienced a rapid early evolutionary diversification during the well-known Cambrian explosion and subsequently dominated the Palaeozoic benthos with its diversity and abundance. Even though the phylogeny of the Lophotrochozoa is still hotly debated, it is now known that the Brachiopoda are a monophyletic grouping. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stratigraphy and pyrite geochemistry of the Lower–Upper Ordovician in the Lerhamn and Fågelsång-3 drill cores, Scania, Sweden
