Welcome to MAPAS Lab
Exploring Ancient Life and Paleobiogeographic Dynamics!
At MAPAS Lab, we are a passionate team of scientists dedicated to the fields of paleoclimatology, paleontology, evolution, and ecology. Our mission is to unravel the mysteries of ancient life and understand the dynamic processes that have shaped our planet over time.
A project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) as part of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. We commit to conducting cutting-edge research that pushes the boundaries of knowledge in our disciplines.
Our state-of-the-art facilities are located in the CITEXVI building. Our location is within the campus of the University of Vigo in Spain. Here, we work with global experts, using our skills to address intriguing questions about Earth’s history.
At MAPAS Lab, we believe in the power of collaboration and interdisciplinary approaches. Our researchers combine their skills to explore the paleobiogeographic dynamics of ancient life forms, shedding light on how past ecosystems evolved and interacted with the changing environment. As we delve into the past, our aim is to understand Earth’s history-shaping. This comprehension aids in predicting the impacts of ongoing climate change on current and future biodiversity.
Being a hub for scientific discovery, we devote ourselves to fostering an environment of innovation, curiosity, and discovery. Through our research, we aim to not only advance scientific knowledge but also contribute to society’s understanding of our planet’s past and its implications for the future.
Join us on a thrilling journey to uncover ancient life’s secrets and its role in shaping today’s world. We invite you to explore our website and discover the team, research projects and publications at MAPAS Lab.
