Dr Greenwood’s Research Interests

The Greenwood lab uses the fossil record of terrestrial plants (fossil leaves, pollen and spores) to reconstruct climates of the geological past, and the forest ecosystems they represent. Details about our research program can be found on the Research Projects page.

Dr Greenwood has received funding for his research from NSERC (2005-2008; 2009-2013; 2016-2020), Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the province of Manitoba (MRIF), and from Brandon University (BURC; 2005-2006, 2009-2010; 2011-2012; 2014-2016; 2017-2018; 2020-2022). Dr Greenwood was previously funded by the Australian Research Council (1995; 1997; 1998-2000; 2001).
