Pleistocene footprints show intensive use of lake margin habitats by Homo erectus groups

Reconstructing hominin paleoecology is critical for understanding our ancestors’ diets, social organizations and interactions with other animals. Most paleoecological models lack fine-scale resolution due to fossil hominin scarcity and the time-averaged accumulation of faunal assemblages.

Understanding modern extinctions in marine ecosystems: the role of palaeoecological data | Biology Letters https://t.co/iMHSu25Dwy

Because anthropogenic impacts on ecological systems pre-date the oldest scientific observations, historical documents and archaeological records, understanding modern extinctions requires additional data sources that extend further back in time. Palaeoecological records, which provide quantitative p…

Paleoenvironmental reconstructions in Ethiopia! New research from out #ETEteam member Tyler Faith https://t.co/xUckwBWeWP

East Africa has produced the earliest record of Homo sapiens ~ 200 ka and a punctuated record of Middle Stone Age and Later Stone Age behaviors. We lack, however, a detailed late Quaternary paleoenvironmental record for the region, particularly during humid periods. Without a regional record, hypoth…

The relationship between diet and body mass in terrestrial mammals

Wondering about the mid-size gap? Check out our last #ETEteam publication. @SPine_M #ETEinpress
https://t.co/NOo5RDPwb9

Diet and body mass are highly important factors in mammalian ecology, and they have also proven to be powerful paleoecological indicators. Our previous research has proposed a new classification scheme for mammals with more dietary divisions that emphasizes the primary resource in a given diet. We a…
