Paleoecology is the study of ancient plants and animals, their relationships with each other and interactions with the physical environment. My particular research and publications focus on the use of insect fossils to reconstruct environments during the Quaternary Period, the interval spanning the last 2 million years during which there were multiple glaciations, or ice ages.
For more information on ice-ages and theories about the cause of glaciations, click here.
