I’m happy to share two new papers that have recently been published. The first is an invited mini-review for New Phytologist, Ecological impacts of the late Quaternary megaherbivore extinctions. This was a fun paper to write, and could easily have included dozens more references — it was a challenge to keep it in the guidelines of the mini-review format! The paper outlines some recent work on the ecological impacts of the megafaunal extinctions, as well as some hypotheses and ideas for future directions.
Last December, I participated in a workshop to identify the 50 priority research questions in paleoecology (see these blog posts for more details), and the paper that came out of that effort is now out in Journal of Ecology: Looking forward through the past: Identification of 50 priority research questions in palaeoecology. The article is currently early view form on the website, but when the finalized proofs are available the article with be open access. Many thanks to Alistair Seddon, Anson Mackay, and Ambroise Baker for organizing such a fantastic workshop!
Please let me know if you’d like a copy of either paper!
