We study the evolutionary history of amphibians and early reptiles, their ontogeny and phylogeny. The early diversification of major clades and evolutionary scenarios of their origin form major foci of interest (Biological systematics and Phylogeny: Q1).
A second approach studies the formation of fossillagerstätten, especially the origin of vertebrate deposits in lacustrine environments (Ecology of fossil and recent ecosystems: Q4).
