The Paleoecology laboratory is equipped to prepare fossil, animal, and plant materials for isotopic analyses.  We also have a stereomicroscope with a dedicated camera for projects including dental microwear analyses and fine scale geometric morphometrics. The laboratory hosts a diversity of undergraduates as well as graduate students analyzing paleontological, archaeological, and modern remains to interpret dietary, habitat, life history, and climatic changes throughout primate and human evolution.
