Marie Curie Actionsartemisia pollen About IPOL

IPOL grew out of IPAL, the Irish Palaeoecological Data Synthesis and Analysis Project instigated by Professor Fraser Mitchell, Trinity College Dublin and funded through a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship grant. The postdoctoral fellow, Rob Marchant, collected the initial site records in 2000.

The database has since been updated by Bettina Stefanini, the current curator and webmaster.
