Putting fossils to work to protect biodiversity

Last February, I gave a talk at AAAS in a session on conservation paleobiology, a field that leverages the fossil record to help inform the conservation and management of modern biodiversity. There’s a nice feature in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that highlights talks by Sue Kidwell, Rowan Lockwood, and myself. You can check out the full article in this week’s copy of PNAS, or online here.
