"Studying the Past, Defining the Future: Mammals and Their Environments in the Ice Age and the 21st Century." Presented by Dr. John D. Orcutt in the department of Geology. As climate continues to change, how will animals respond? One place we can look for answers to this critical question is the fossil record of mammals and their environments from the last Ice Age, but to what degree does this record reflect real ecological change rather than the geology of the rocks and sediments in which the fossils are preserved?
