Research

The Terry Lab is interested in the temporal and spatial responses of terrestrial small mammal communities to changes in climate and anthropogenic land-use over modern, historical, and paleontological time-scales. Our research integrates the perspectives, tools, and data archives of biology and geology to investigate the structure and dynamics of modern, historical and ancient populations and communities. We also focus on how geological records of ecological information form. Our multi-disciplinary approach is motivated by the need to better understand and predict the future fates of species and ecosystems in our rapidly changing world.
