Ida Hartvig

Assistant Professor

Botanist and molecular ecologist, broadly insterested in the ecology, evolution and conservation of wild plant species, from Southeast Asian timber trees to Danish orchids.

My research include conservation and population genomics of wild plant species, plant-microbe interactions, plant reproductive systems, species identification and delimitation as well as application of eDNA and metabarcoding methods for biodiversity assessments and identification of species interactions. 

My current research at Center of Evolutionary Hologenomics use orchids and their associated microbiomes as a model system to study the association between wild plant genomes, their microbiont communities and their habitat. 

If you are looking for a MSc or BSc project, I have several opportunities for projects centering on orchids and their microbiomes. Fieldwork and laboratory work can be included, if desired. Please contact me at if you are interested.
