Research questions

Main research interests of Priska Schäfer focus on biogenic sedimentation in shallow water and oceanic environments, an on the paleoecological and evolutionary responses of marine benthic and planktonic organisms to global change. Central research questions include:

  • How did the formation of the Central American interface effect hydrographic, ecological and sedimentological conditions as well as evolutionary patterns on both sides of the landbridge?
  • How are environmental parameters such as temperature, salinity and productivity been documented in the skeleton of marine animals and algae?
  • How does ocean acidification effect the skeletal mineralization of marine animals such as bryozoans, molluscs and algae?
