Ben Slater

Ben Slater visited the department of palaeobotany  for six weeks in the spring of 2010. He studied 260 million-year-old fossil plants from Antarctica. The principal objective of his thesis is to reconstruct the vegetation of the late Palaeozoic in the Prince Charles Mountains, East Antarctica.

Morten Elemros

Morten Elemeros

Morten Elmeros visited the Department of Contaminant Research for five weeks in the autumn of 2008. He studied the Swedish otter population, with the aim to examine reproductive traits of otters from different regions in Sweden, e.g. seasonal breeding patterns, reproductive rate and litter sizes.

Ana Millanes

Ana Millanes visited the Department of Cryptogamic Botany for five weeks in the spring of 2008, supervised by Mats Wedin. The aim of her visit was to work with a survey of the morphological characters of the group Tremellales, that include common spices of “jelly fungi" as Tremella mesenterica (“Which´s butter") among others.

Zsolt Benko

Zsolt Benko

Zsolt Benko from Budapest in Hungary  visited the Laboratory for Isotope Geology for six weeks during October and November 2007. This was his first trip to Sweden and The Swedish Museum of Natural History. He was impressed by NRMs exhibitions and their interactive parts, unusual in Hungary, as well as the number of families with children he saw visiting the museum.

Izabela Sadowska-Woda

Izabela Sadowska-Woda

Miridae-Cylapinae, a species-rich group of plant bugs, was the main topic of Izabela Sadowska-Woda´s research. She came from the University of Rzeszow and visited the department of Entomology in the beginning of 2007 to study the entomological collections.

Ingeborg Soulie-Marsche

Ingeborg Soulie-Marsche

Ingeborg Soulie-Marsche´s objective was to investigate modern and fossil Charophytes. Her reasons for visiting the museum was the invaluable collection of Charophyte fructifications from both living and fossil species, hold by NRM, and the possibility to investigate these by the scanning electron microscope (SEM). Ingeborg Soulie-Marsche visited the department of Palaeobotany July-August 2006.

Simone Fior

Simone Fior

This was not Simones first visit to the museum, he first came as an Erasmus student in 2001 and then via the HighLat program in 2004. He gained very much from the experience and help of the people working at NRM, and as a young systematist Simone found the experience very educating.

Marco Quintilani

The reasons that Marco chose to come to Sweden were many, but foremost it was the expert knowledge and the advanced technological equipment at Naturhistoriska riksmuseet. Studying the collections was not the highest priority on Marcos´s list since the purpose of his visit here in Sweden was to create artificial minerals under controlled circumstances as well as to better understand what controls the mineral building processes within Earth´s crust.

Anthea Gentry

Anthea Gentry, Research Associate at the Natural History Museum in London, studied the extensive and historic collection of mammals and birds used by Linnaeus in describing many new taxa in February-March 2006. Once completed, the work will make known the specimens seen by Linnaeus, their identity in the light of modern taxonomy, and will provide descriptions and coloured photographs.
