The Barnosky Lab

We use the fossil record to study how biodiversity and ecosystem function will respond to today’s global change.

As of July 1, 2016, A.D. Barnosky moved to Stanford University as Executive Director of Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve and became Professor Emeritus at UC-Berkeley.

Current projects use the fossil record to define long-term baselines of normal for ecosystems.
