Current Research in EEPS Seminar: Dr. Lydia Tackett - North Dakota State University Using biosediments to track paleoecological trends in deep time Predator-prey interactions in the fossil record are nebulous and difficult to identify, but increased predation is theorized to induce changes in prey taxa through a process called escalation. However, morphological changes can have many causes, including abiotic factors such as changes in depositional environment, temperature, or geochemical changes. Paleoecology and functional morphology of marine assemblages may provide critical…Find out more »
For outside visitors, the best way to get to our department is to come in on Rice Blvd and turn into entrance 20 (intersection of Rice and Kent St.). At the stop sign, you will see a visitor parking lot. From there, walk east to the department. The google map below shows exactly where our building is.
