RETROMONT : Holocene history of high alpine watershed reconstructed from lacustrine sediments

RETROMONT (2011-2013) is funded by CNRS (DIPEE Alpes) and by Univ. Grenoble Alpes

RETROMONT aims to better understand the Holocene history of land use changes, vegetation dynamics and erosion processes in high alpine watersheds of the French Alps. We analyse lacustrine sediments of high elevation lakes using a combination of geochemical methods and DNA metabarcoding approaches. 

RETROMONT is a working collaboration between LECA (P. Taberlet, Ph. Choler), EDYTEM (F. Arnaud, J. poulenard) and SAJF (S. Aubert)
