Field site at Dzharakuduk, Kyzylkum Desert, Uzbekistan.  Fossil sites are in the badlands
             behind the encampment in the middle of the photo.  The two round structures are called yurts.
             For scale, the largest yurt on the left measures 7 meters in diameter and the highest point on the
             escarpment is 150 meters above camp (Photo by Igor Danilov).

Recent Research:

Nine field seasons from 1994 through 2006 concentrated on Late Cretaceous sites in Uzbekistan, a former republic of the Soviet Union.  These are approximately 90 million years old and preserve ecologies along the coast of ancient shallow inland seas.  The team was composed of Uzbek, Russian, British, American, and Canadian scientists (URBAC).  We were interested in what the faunas could tell us about the evolution, ecology, and faunal turnover during this time.  I was specifically interested in the mammals in this fauna.  In Uzbekistan we found and described the oldest eutherian dominated mammalian fauna in the world.   The National Science Foundation, the Civilian Research Defense Fund, and the National Geographic Society sponsored the research.  I continue my broader interests in the analysis of extinction and faunal turnover that was originally spurred by my work on vertebrate turnover at the Cretaceous/Paleogene boundary. These studies have been broadened to other intervals in the Late Cretaceous. Such studies also continue to raise broader theoretical questions of how phylogenetic systematics should play a role in the analysis of faunal turnover, including both questions of extinction and speciation.  Most recently research has turned to questions surrounding how nature's order has been represented in the Western and scientific traditions, beginning with the Greeks and moving forward in time to modern ideas of systematic representations.
