Livio Bätscher is Dr. Livio Bätscher!


Livio successfully defended his PhD-thesis “Pulsed plant evolution in mountain ecosystems: Identifying rate changes of range shift and morphology” in our lecture hall that was filled to the brim on 14 March.  It was a great display of four years of excellent phylogenetic work on alpine plant evolution, some of which was recently already published (, with more to come.  Livio, many congratulations and good luck with your next scientific steps!
