The Barnosky Lab

Hello Governor

We study how global change affects biodiversity and ecosystem function. We discover paleontological and geological information to advance conservation science and to help policy makers effectively guide the future.

Teaching Fall 2014 IB 286-2: Paleontology in Ecology and Conservation

WELCOME TO NEW PH.D. STUDENTS NICK SPANO AND ZIXIANG ZHANG!

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

 In South America we are studying how people plus climate change magnify extinction intensity.
