Examples

  • I mean to say anything interesting about evolution, you need to be situating it in a larger ecological or paleoecological context.

  • Diatoms as indicators of climatic and limnological change in Swedish Lapland: a 100-lake calibration set and its validation for paleoecological reconstructions.

    Historical changes in freshwater ecosystems in the Arctic

  • The potential changes for the next century can be put into context by comparing their rates and magnitudes to those estimated for the changes documented by paleoecological and other evidence from the late Quaternary Period (Table 7.1).

    Late-Quaternary changes in arctic terrestrial ecosystems, climate, and ultraviolet radiation levels

  • A paleoecological assessment of Phragmites australis in New England tidal marshes: changes in plant community structure during the last few millennia.

  • I just want to send a big congratulations out there to my friend Laura Wilson whose first published paper "Comparative taphonomy and paleoecological reconstruction of two microvertebrate accumulations from the Late Cretaceous Hell Creek Formation Maastrichtian, eastern Montana" came out in the new issue of PALAIOS today.

    CONGRATS LAURA!!!

  • I think this is still valid, from a paleoecological point of view: one of the major factors necessary for diversification is ecological opportunity, and while the dinosaurs were still around occupying most of the major niches, mammal diversification would be held in relative check.

  • Although microvertebrate accumulations are commonly used for paleoecological reconstructions, taphonomic processes affecting the final taxonomic composition of an accumulation are often ignored.

  • Quantitative growth ring analysis of fossil woods may be used only in well-constrained paleoecological studies where taxonomic and climatic sources of variability can be controlled, and additionally, of course, as a qualitative tool in paleoclimatic and paleoecological analyses.
