Welcome postdoc Dr. Leila Siciliano to SEPL, the Lawing Lab, and CPiA!

Leila joins us from a postdoc at Texas State University. She is a functional morphologist who will be exploring how carnivoran jaw structures are distributed with respect to environmental conditions on the landscape. She will be working with the Conservation Paleobiology in Africa project to improve our understanding of trait-environment interactions, particularly in East...

How have African trait-environment relationships changed over time?

Check out this article about our latest grant! We will study fossils in Africa to forecast how humans and climate affect wildlife. The study will build an understanding of the continent’s animals, physical traits developed, and their relationships/responses to environmental changes: http://b.gatech.edu/3I5iGYq This grant will fund grad student Danny Lauer’s dissertation research. Also, grad...
