The Swedish Museum of Natural History invites you to a symposium where some of the world’s leading researchers in genetics, paleobiology and archaeology present the latest research results on the origins and natural history of the Scandinavian biota.

Scandinavia was covered by a large ice sheet during the last glacial maximum, which means most modern-day animals, plants and humans have a recent origin in the region. But their origins and subsequent history have until recently remained unresolved.
