Leicester Neotropical Research (LNR) Unit specialises in
palaeo-ecological and environmental biogeochemical research in Northern
South America. The Quaternary period of this region in particular offers
some exciting scientific questions that we focus at. The answers to
these problems hold important clues towards the response of the tropical
environment to global climate change and ultimately will lead to a
better understanding of the local landscape and the earth-system.
