Overview of Recent Work

We study how global change affects biodiversity and ecosystem function. We use paleontological and geological information to inform conservation science.

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. In the American West, we track biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics through time.

Heatstroke: Nature in an Age of Global Warming, explains for the general public and students why climate change means we have to manage nature differently.
