About Ana Tronholm

My interests cover the areas of algal biodiversity, evolution and genomics. I study patterns of diversification and speciation, mostly on tropical and subtropical regions. I am particularly interested in the role of secondary metabolites in algal overgrowth of corals and their bioactivity, and in studying phenomena of tropicalization, such as harmful algal blooms, currently taking place in more temperate regions that may serve as natural laboratories to detect and predict changes in marine ecosystems in future climate scenarios.

My research is currently funded by Formas (Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning): Tackling Harmful Algal Blooms: Development of an innovative and integrative method for forecasting toxic cyanobacteria in a changing environment.
