Hindcasting faunal distributions in the Holocene to understand interactions between ancient societies, biodiversity and climate

BACKGROUND. Faced with the urgent challenge of predicting the consequences of current and future climate change, it is imperative that we seek to learn lessons about climate-animal-human relations from the long-term records available from the past. Read more

Functional ecology of conodonts: roles and responses to ecosystem restructuring through the Palaeozoic

Project Highlights. Use cutting edge approaches to analyse conodont feeding mechanisms and interpret the conodont fossil record in terms of their functional ecology and differential evolutionary success and survival of ecological guilds. Read more

Deformation of the Oman ophiolite mantle section

Oceanic lithosphere is continuously generated at mid-ocean ridges and destroyed at subduction zones. Both mid-ocean ridges and subduction zones are essential components of the plate tectonic cycle, without which all tectonic, magmatic, and associated surface processes would not exist. Read more

Regional investigation of extinction-recovery patterns during the Toarcian (Lower Jurassic) hyperthermal event

The Toarcian Stage of the Lower Jurassic marks a period of extreme environmental perturbations, including changes to the global carbon cycle, rapid warming to ‘hyperthermal’ conditions, and increased continental weathering and run-off. Read more
