"Stepping Foot Into Natural History Museums: Correlations Between Environmental Change And Skeletal Shape"
Presented by: Allison Bormet, Adjunct Faculty, Science and Mathematics Department, Columbia College Chicago
Both modern and fossil skeletons harbor clues of past environmental change. My research unites these data to analyze the correlation between environment and body shape in mammals. Specifically, I analyze the link between foot shape and ground cover. This talk will discuss the connections between mammalian limb function, shape, and environment using modern paleontological techniques.
