My research is centred on the exploitation of Quaternary mammal fossils to enhance 
our understanding of processes of evolution and extinction at the species level.  
Quaternary mammals are exceptionally well-suited to this endeavour because of their 
abundance in time and space, the accurate dating methods available, and the detailed 
knowledge of dramatic environmental changes to which the fauna responded.  Further, 
because Quaternary ice ages shaped the modern biota, and because many Quaternary 
species have close living relatives, the study of Quaternary faunas and floras is of direct 
relevance to modern systematics, biogeography and conservation biology. Finally, 
Quaternary fossils in some circumstances preserve traces of biological molecules such 
as DNA that can be extracted and sequenced, yielding novel information about their 
biology and evolution.

Current projects in my group include:

  • Evolution and taxonomy of ice-age deer
    This project aims to reconstruct the relationships among the different extinct deer species which lived in Europe between 2.5 and 0.5 million years ago. We are also making an in-depth study of the origin of subspecies within the modern red deer group.
  • Dwarfing of fossil mammals on Mediterranean islands
    We are leading a project to study the effect of dramatic environmental changes over the last 800,000 years on the evolution and survival of dwarf elephants and dwarf deer. Such work may help us understand how mammals might respond to climate change today.
  • Extinction of large mammals in the Late Quaternary Ice Age
    We are investigating the  Late Quaternary extinction of many large mammal species, in particular its causality in terms of climate, people, or both. In collaboration with colleagues at the University of Durham and the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Laboratory, we are mapping the changing distributions of mammals, vegetation and humans through the critical period. We also use ancient DNA to help map the population history of species that survived and those that went extinct.
  • Taxonomic status of living elephants
    The taxonomy of both African and Asian elephants is under debate. We are conducting a number of studies focusing on anatomical variation to complement the genetic research taking place
  • Mammoth evolution as a model for species origins
    The origin of the woolly and Columbian mammoths is one of the best-documented examples of species evolution in the fossil record. Using mammoth fossils from around the world, we are studying and modeling how these species originated. In a related project, we are utilising woolly mammoth DNA to track both population history and the origin of the mammoth’s special adaptations.
  • Body size variation in Quaternary mammals
    We are investigating the influence of food and temperature on body size change in ice age mammals.
  • The role of behaviour in evolution
    How does the evolution of new adaptive traits begin? We are using the fossil record to investigating how behavioural responses to the environment  may place species in a new adaptive regime where new morphologies evolve.
